In order to dampen assumptions about Joseph Douglass being "conspiratory"" with regard to his conclusions about the KGB drug-raping the free world during the cold-war, I find it important to remind people of the distinction between fact-based research into what groups known  to conspire have been doing on the one hand, and speculations about what groups that might be conspiring would be conspiring about. Joseph Douglass book Red Cocaine clearly belongs in the first group.

About the Author
Dr Joseph Douglass is a national security analyst and author with expertise in defence policy, threat assessment, deception, intelligence and political warfare, nuclear strategy, terrorism, advanced chemical and biological warfare agents and applications, and international narcotics trafficking. Since the mid-1980s, his primary focus has been research into various dimensions of cultural warfare and notably into the illegal drugs plague, with emphasis on its origins, support structures, marketing - and the question: 'What can be done?'
Dr Douglass received his PhD in electrical engineering from Cornell University in
1962 and has taught at Cornell, the Navy Postgraduate School at Monterey, and Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Relations in Washington, D.C.. He has worked in and for the national laboratories (Sandia Corporation], the US Government, where he was Deputy and Acting Director, Tactical Technology Office, Advanced Research Projects Agency - and with various defence contractors, such as the Institute for Defense Analyses and System Planning Corporation. He is a former member of the Weapons Systems Evaluation Group, US Army Science Board, and a former consultant to the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency and Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He currently directs The Redwood Institute, which was formed to address the internal problems America faces - such as illegal drugs, crime and impoverished education - and to identify root causes, evaluate national policy and devise alternative policy options.
The Author has been a pioneering analyst and is perhaps best known for his ground-
breaking studies of nuclear weapons policy, the impact of precision-guided munitions, the nature of the Soviet nuclear threat, the risks arising from chemical and biological warfare agents, and intelligence aspects of international narcotics trafficking. His unclassified books include The Theater Nuclear Offensive [1976, reprinted ten times]; Soviet Strategy for War in Europe [Pergamon Press, 1980, also translated into and published in German]; Soviet Strategy for Nuclear War [Hoover Institute Press, 1979: numerous printings, translated into and published in Japanese]; CBW: The Poor man's Atomic Bomb [Institute for Foreign Policy Analysis, 1984]; Why the Soviet Union Violates Arms Control Treaties [Pergamon-Brassey's, 1988]; Conventional War and Escalation [The National
Strategy Information Center, 1981]; The Superpowers and Strategic War Termination [co- editor, Pergamon-Brassey's, 1989]; and the present work, originally entitled: Red Cocaine:The Drugging of America [1990]. This new edition has been prepared with a view to meeting continuing demand for the work, in both the United States and elsewhere, following the strategic adjustment completed in 1991 when the Communist strategists switched to pursuing their manic World Revolutionary objectives through covert Communism and a 'new form' of reversible 'state-controlled capitalism' - working, as Lenin taught his 'illuminated' followers, 'by other means'.

From Edward Harle Limited
Drawing on defector information and other intelligence sources, Dr Douglass reveals that the Soviets plotted the global drugs scourge in the 1960s, as a key element of their planned onslaught against the fabric of Western society and culture. By the mid-1960s, the Soviet criminalists had already penetrated the existing drug networks; and where they had encountered resistance, they had set up fresh drug-trafficking organisations and distribution systems. Over the Western Hemisphere, Soviet drug-trafficking ops are controlled by the Cuban Communist Party's Americas Department, which remains to this day under covert Soviet KGB direction. The KGB organises the financial arrangements on behalf of Soviet Military Intelligence (GRU), which directs the drugs offensive on the basis that it is a gigantic sabotage operation – which also happens to provide limitless finance for World Revolutionary purposes, including the financing of terrorism training operations. The Soviets further pre-selected the Western banks, and the individuals within them, that they would require in order to carry out the extensive money-laundering operations that they anticipated: hence the advance placement of Soviet operatives at Bank of New York, Republic National Bank, and other prominent institutions, well ahead of the predicted avalanche of drug-derived liquidity. This was how the Soviets penetrated the principal 'engine room' of Western capitalism – the banking system. The significance of all this for the world’s cohesion was summarised by a senior International Monetary Fund official who has pronounced that 'the drug problem cannot be solved, because if it were now to be fixed, the international financial system would collapse'. Drugs are the most valuable commodity in the world – even more so than oil and gold. The Global Revolution, driven by criminalised revolutionary operatives, is as focused upon control over drug-trafficking as upon dominating energy resources.
