Syrian rebels destroy ISIS drug stash

| June 18, 2018 | 11 Comments

Stars & Stripes reports that US-trained Syrian rebels have destroyed a cache of Captagon or fenethylline also known as the “jihadi’s drug”.

The highly addictive amphetamine-based substance was seized at the end of May during an operation against ISIS in southern Syria.

“Despite Daesh’s facade of Islamic purity, its criminal terrorists are known drug users and traffickers,” the task force said, using an Arabic acronym for ISIS.

Drugs sales have become a significant source of revenue for the group since it lost control of oil wells and refineries across Iraq and Syria, according to the Popular Mobilization Forces in Iraq, which fight the militants…Captagon is said to make fighters alert in battle, keeping them awake for longer periods and making them feel happy and energetic.

Why do you think it’s called “dope”?

    Ah, this totally fake news. Drugs and alcohol are forbidden in in Islam so this could not be true. Also mental illness does not exist and the never ending war with Israel is over a land dispute.

    The jihadis get high and wide to pick a fight?

    Who knew? Never occurred to me. Never!

    I’m hoping the scum are going through horrible withdrawal w/o their uppers. I personally feel those who make/transport/sell addictive drugs on a large scale should die. The damage these drugs do on a personal and societal level is unbelievable. Those who manufacture/traffic/etc these drugs are a cancer.

        not just there… the drug issues in the US would not exist without demand. One of the few things Hillary ever said that I agreed with was that the ultimate root of the drug problem was the American demand – we are the largest user and put more money into drug cartels than any other nation; probably in the world. Draw a line in the sand – this list A of drugs is legal, this list B requires a valid prescription, and this list C is off limits. If you get caught in possession of one off list C you get one chance at rehab; twice or dealing gets you dead.

    Saw a “you might be islamic if…” list a while back that started with “You refine and sell heroin for a living but claim a moral objection to beer.”

    A perfect waste of good drugs. Instead of destroying them, they need to be force fed to any and all captured ISIS fighters until they become WASWAS corpses.
