Iran's Ruthless Response To Drug Trafficking (2000) 4.5

The Golden Crescent (2000) - We join the Iranian drug force fighting to stem the flow of heroin that is creating a huge underclass of addicts in Iran and flooding on into Europe and beyond.

Desperate Afghan refugees trying to escape famine are lured by the drug traffickers. Inside large storage rooms lie tons of confiscated drugs waiting to be incinerated. It’s the result of Iran’s billion dollar crackdown on smugglers. Still it represents only 5% of Afghanistan’s annual production. Despite world-wide implications of smuggling, Iran receives little help from outside. To the West “Iran is still on the borderline between ally and enemy”, says a UN expert on drugs.

I lost my brother to heroin, it's a terrible thing, it's not only the addict that suffers, everyone that loves them is also gravely wounded, it's evil stuff.

If it weren't for iran sacrificing their young men at the border, imagine what would have happened to the world. like the Iranian leader said, it's a sacrifice not for iran but for humanity

War on drugs is a joke. I’m sure people remember Iran-Contra so called scandal where CIA and some generals trafficked drugs. The only way to win this so called war on drugs is to legalize every drug known to man and tax it and treat addictions not punish people for addictions. This Kurd guy was hanged for his little amount of drugs but what happened to the generals and CIA agents? Not a damn thing! Why is it that when they show these clinics for addicts there is no patients who suffer from withdrawals? They all look like they’ve never even seen heroin.

Amazing how Afghan opium production started up again and increased ten fold after US took pver and the govt they installed , it is a open secret that the CIA funds many of its wars and operations such as arming and funding the “ militants” in Syria from narcotics trade, its also not so much a secret that when Bill Clinton was governor of Arkansas there were daily international flights of CIA air planes coming in loaded with cocaine from south America and heroin from Afghanistan and Asia, the few brave journalists who tried to expose it one was murdered the others threatened with same fate if they dont abandon it and they surely did, this leaked by one of those journalists

The American embargo is partially intended to undermine the Iranian government's efforts to curtail the evil drugs trade which is supported by the USA.

As usual, the weak suffer what they must! How heart breaking to see those gaunt faces desperate for a solution, those poor women with babes in arms, emaciated from extreme poverty and hunger, forced into illegal crossings and worse. The demand for Heroin? It is the panacea of many desperate souls unable to cope with life's adversities, lost the will to live, and in short, a slow suicide of those barely hanging on, yet too afraid to go over the edge. A massive global tragedy indeed!

The only reason Iran is designated as a "pariah" state is because Israel says so and the tail wags the dog.

Iran has a long history of fighting the drug war on behalf of the United States who fail to understand
that their efforts to undermine Iran will have a catastrophic increase in the supply of drugs entering the USA.

“We don’t sell, we don’t know” I like that, very smart answer 😂 😂

Iran should ship that stock of heroin and drugs to the US maybe they will lift some sanctions

Iran is awesome. Fun fact they almost invaded Afghanistan after the Taliban executed Iranian diplomats.

always love when the Heroine addicts say "No one helps me!"

Wow...the Iranian outlook re stemming the flow of this horrific drug that leaves nothing less than devastation in it’s wake, is highly commendable. I am sure there are thousands and thousands of addicts within their own border, but there is no doubt that the bulk of this “Shit” is headed for the West. Not only do I applaud their effort, I wish them the best of luck, and most of all, safety in their struggle. Iran...I THANK YOU. There are people here in the West that are most appreciative of what you are striving to accomplish and that we wish you God’s protection to do so safely.

This is a real eye-opener. People in the West should really appreciate the lives they can enjoy by birthright and make the best of it rather than do drugs.

now I see why Europeans a so reluctant to impose sanctions on Iran.
