Focus On Fentanyl Shifts From China To Burma Following Bust

Enough fentanyl and meth to cover a football field, and a Canadian national born in China dubbed Asia’s El Chapo may be behind it.

Thank you Big Brother Bear Bill Bertschy for posting about this on Facebook.

A massive Asian drug bust has stirred a fentanyl mystery

An update now on an article originally posted back in October of last year called Fentanyl: Weapon Of Mass Destruction. Reports out of Asia indicate that ground zero in the fight against illicit fentanyl and methamphetamine has moved to Southeast Asia, specifically Burma. I still call it Burma because, like many, I don’t recognize the legitimacy of a name change made by an unelected ruling military junta. Hence Burma.

About ten days ago Patrick Winn, a correspondent for Public Radio International’s program The World, published an article about a massive drug bust there in which the haul was so big that it had to be displayed on a football pitch. In all 18 tons of methamphetamine, mainly in pill form, were recovered as well as about 1,000 gallons of the powerful fentanyl analogue methyl fentanyl, which has been estimated to be anywhere between 400 to 6,000 times more potent than morphine in certain instances.

The labs were set up in northern Burma near the Chinese border and according to Burma News International were run by the Sam Gor (Brother Number Three in Cantonese) Syndicate. Brother Number Three’s real name is Tse Chi Lop, a Canadian national who was born in China and is suspected of leading a large multinational narcotics network. The media have even labeled him “Asia’s El Chapo” and “The Most Wanted Man In Asia”.

Hopefully it isn’t long before Brother No.3 is captured and dealt with by Asian authorities. If he is apprehended in Canada he will be subject to the Canadian justice system and would in all likelihood be granted low bail. Then assuming he didn’t escape, made his trial date, and was found guilty he’d probably serve six months at one of Correction Canada’s many resorts, ie minimum security prisons.

BURMA ARMY’S NEW STRATEGY: Anti-narcotics move and disarmament of a militia

Chinese-born Canadian Tse Chi Lop is alleged be the leader of massive global empire of synthetic drug manufacturing.

The seizure was made by Burma’s army, or Tatmadaw, which shortly afterwards also announced the disbandment of the Kaungkha (People’s Militia). The Kaungkha were implicated in the drug trade by turning a blind eye to, and perhaps even a profit from, the sale of illicit narcotics. The move comes as part of a sudden government crackdown on the drug trade, where in the past it had been much more lenient.

What of China?

Donald Trump 'pleaded' with Xi Jinping to help win 2020 US polls ...

There have been reports that US President Donald Trump asked Chinese leader Xi Jinping for his cooperation in combatting the problem by restricting sales of the precursor chemicals that are used in the illicit manufacture of methamphetamine and fentanyl. It appears as though this may be the case, however this does not, in my opinion, exonerate Communist China from they role that they have played up until now.

It is worth remembering that we are at war with China, again my opinion, and it is still in their strategic advantage to have North America plagued by a serious opioid drug crisis such as we have today. It is taking tens of thousands of lives and adding a huge strain on the resources and economies of jurisdictions across Canada and the United States.

Time Will Tell

But right now the main focus now needs to be on Burma to see whether or not it continues to exercise its crackdown on narcotics production. If it does, it won’t be long before the results are being seen in the streets and drug markets across North America and South Asia, and hopefully in a decrease in the number of deaths. Only time will tell.
