Military police are investigating claims that British soldiers may have trafficked heroin from Afghanistan.

The Ministry of Defence said they were aware of "unsubstantiated" claims that troops were using military aircraft to ship the drug out of the country...

I still don't understand why we don't buy the stuff off them and use it for medical opiates?

i) because it's a sensible idea
ii) the Chinese get a bit jittery when it comes to Britain and Opiates especially right on their doorstep

Why don't we buy it & use it medically?

When I asked this to one of the SOCA officers who came down to brief us, the explained (at length) that it was not commercially viable - it would cost far too much to put all the systems in place to collect/export the unprocessed opium into the refined product.

And OP PLUNDER still occurs, but there's always ways around things like it.

How can this be? After all we know that every person who has ever deployed is a Saint.

R4 has just reported that the allegation also involves Canadians and includes both Bastion and Khandahar.

Personally it sounds the stuff of nonsense to me.

Nope, couldn't find any because the Kingo's took them all. Usually to make their time on stag more interesting.

Old news. Some quality deals made by contractors in 2006 after a certain Turkish firm rocked up at KAF and opened up a supply line wider than a pads wives anus. Who could blame them? A couple of thousand dollars for a 1000% mark up if you can sly it past the empty heads in the terminal, No contest.

Just dont kick the arrse out of it, some alkijocks at KBR make fortunes every time they go home....
