Mansour Khan has built a very lucrative empire by trafficking opium. In just a few days, Khan can smuggle enough opium to make 120 kg of heroin. Here we join his men on two drug runs across Iran.
Khan's agent knows the farmer desperately needs money. "It's not really what I'm looking for but considering your desperate situation, I will make you an offer". The opium is loaded into vehicles to be driven to Iran. It's a dangerous journey. Several times, shots are fired. Then, there's no sign of the scout at the agreed meeting point. Moments later, the scout calls in a warning. "Turn the car around and go another route", orders one man. They do so and the drugs arrive safely. The second run also makes it to Iran without a hitch. In a few days, Khan has smuggled enough opium to make 120 kg of heroin.

I am pashtun and these guys don't not represent my ethnicity, these are a bunch crack heads who take pleasure in killing pashtuns and they also drink alcohol and claim to be the good "Muslims " they think themselves, in the 1970 my dad with Dr.Najeeb (Rest in Peace) forces fought these dogs as they where foreign insurgents payed and funded by pakistan ISI and American CIA to destabilize Afghanistan. If you want to see who represent pashtun Afghans, look up Dr.najeeb, King Amanullah, Khushal Khan Khattack, the Fourth Muslim human to travel to space was Afghan pashtun and pashto is officially the 4th language of space, the pashtun empire was the 2nd biggest Muslim empire after the Ottoman empire.

+Hashmountain "Interesting, so Iran is producing massive quantities of heroin..."
My apologies...I guess you're only insinuating Iran *knowingly* processes the opium into heroin. As far as I know they still execute people for smuggling. Which I think is archaic. Whether or not IR or MOIS knowingly takes part in the smuggling is unknown. However, w/ its rampant corruption I wouldn't doubt it happens but I don't believe it's a part of some grand conspiracy being IR suffers from a high rate of opium addiction as well as 50% of the opium is meant for local consumption.
people always look down on the third world countries and there drug production, but people in the west fail to realize these people are dirt poor and semi starving for most of there lifes, poverty doesn't not discriminate, Brown, black white, Catholic or Muslim we are all people
Some people are born with a freedom others can only dream of. You should spend your time trying to open up your mind rather than closing it off to stereotypical responses normaly made by those still closely connected to the Neandethals. Or is your head realy full of the dust you have collected since birth?
Many comments made here are not seeing the bigger picture which the doco is about, without saying it......................its so much bigger that Mansoor and other muppets like him,,, they are just pawns in game.
That is a pertinent point of view MrSphiggy . I was just saying one of the million things the video made me think of...The real bastards are not these guys. I agree with that. There still is a moral issue : growing that doesn't directly kill people, yet if no one grew it, no people would die...I expect from you : "Except maybe farmers and their family for not making a living" (c'est complique tout ca...) . Regards, FD.
cultivating a plant isnt killing people. If you look at farming industry in general, theres a ton of heartache, that goes with the job. But just because they cultivate poppy does not mean they are killing people. All those next steps of making heroin, you could say that is hurting others. But these are farmers, doing what they do, farm.
The Americans take it for free or they go to these people and hand them what is supposed to be a lot of money. They then ship it into the US and make a fortune. The US did pay them at one time to stop growing it. They did stop. Then the US figured why pay when you can get it for free.
Muslim by name not by nature. If people would educate themselves they would see that opium is used for legitimate medical uses, to make morphine... Where does most morphine come from? Its grown in Australia where the opium plant is not native and only grown to make morphine. Why not give the poorer people in Afghanistan the ability to feed themselves and let them grow it and then buy the opium from them? Why?
I remember Afghan hash back in the sixties, THAT was their main crop then. It was the superpowers and their cold war that screwed it all so that poppy became the main crop. First the Russians, then the Americans and Brits[again]. Anyone seen any Afghan hash lately?
You are so dumb, firstly Afghans are not arabs, and the reason we are fighting is because we love Islam and don't want to sell our kids like for example U.S have :D
You really should get some facts, thel education standard in Afghanistan is higher than in U.S hahaha, that my friend, is fact :D
these guy aint making money the first person it hits in the uk or orther country with advancedtechniques is where the money is made they buy for 40 dollard a key but 0.7 on the dot is sold for 10-15 pounds how much money do you think the uk dealers make, its a profitable trade but very high risk and morally wrong
Western governments send police to catch drug dealers and at the same time they send the military to Afghanistan, because the Taliban did ban opium production effectively. Now CIA/USA did rise production much higher than before the ban.
Despite claiming the Taliban would use drugs to finance the war, they do nothing to stop 90% of world opium production that flows via US militar machines to their new drug dealer state Kosovo which as state distributes it to Europe in diplomatic suite cases.
@QLIQLIable Arabs are the crap of the earth,they would sell there kids to save their own skin,double standards dealing heroin when suppose to be religious,the US should not be over there,as they should not be in the west.Dont agree with the war over there as they should be let to rule themselves,as they did before and let the country drop into the stoneage,stop all foriegn aid.
Why do these Brits always make pessimistic documentaries about third world criminals, and how the hell did they get access to these people? Was there a whole crew filming and accompanying these people who have to walk fifty miles on 1 foot across a field of burning coals, carrying 100kgs of heroine along with a RPG, and not get caught? And I bet this is all "our" fault, right? We caused the global warming that made Afganistan too shity to grow anything but drugs.
@Epicpofunk no power has yet to defeat the afghans. these guys are crazy... they have their own code. taliban or no taliban.. you invade their country.. they will fight aginst you. i know.. beucase i am a pashtun myself.
First it was the british.. then Russia and now USA. why is the superpower of its time always involved in afghanistan ? when will these western super powers leave afghanistan alone ?? NO ONE has taken over afghanistan yet.. these poeple are crazy. you cant win against them.
@Epicpofunk both places are similar- high elevation separated by watersheds and big mountains. Both are semi/sub-aird- there is enough rain to prevent a full-blown desert, but not by much. I'm partial, but I think both places are beautiful, rugged by beautiful. Ironically, the people that live in both places are similar as well- fiercely loyal to one another and mistrustful of outsiders.
by this area I mean india, afganistan is just next door, but my point is really an open ponderance of the idea that these areas r ever peaceful when they rule themselves, there is a warrior culture, a tribal feudal culture so people may like it more in principal than in reality and of course its only right to let them rule themselves but is it best for them?
this area was peaceful under empireal england, but like zimbabwe etc people want rights so we let them rule themselves and they fail; I think its wrong to be as an empire but what is best for the people?
even under saddam in iraq life was good in comparison!
@ImranRajorvi yaa...brother...today usa is the biggest evil in da world.... they r giving gun to afghans...to kill his own afghans....
now a days....they r making same things with iran....but iran is really the king...they dont fuking care about them...love iran cuz of that...
The Taliban outlawed the production of opium and heroin in 2000, saying it was unIslamic. There was almost no opium or heroin produced in Afghanistan in 2001. 5 years after the invasion and "liberation" of southern Afghanistan, opium and heroin production had risen to three times it had ever been. I love coincidences.
the reason the americans are over there is for the oil they want to find out and locate where the oil is and then when they locate it they will bring in the big companies like texaco to buy off the oil fields from the afghanis for a minimal price then the the companies will be flushing out all the wealth outta afghanistan and then they'll leave behind a great big polluted area like they did in Nigeria and Brazil!! welcome to the real world people!! were nothing but greedy whites
what do u base ur opinon of them on?
propoganda and tv no doubt.
how would u like it if a criminal hid in ur house and the police just levelled ur house with family and au in it?
thats what america does, so before u spout shit get real.
