Drug smugglers continue to innovate. (my italics)
Drug traffickers in China's far west are smuggling heroin into the country woven into carpets imported from Afghanistan and Pakistan, state media said on Tuesday.
This caught my eye.....
While drug smuggling into China from the Golden Triangle in Southeast Asia -- including Laos, Myanmar and Thailand -- had fallen, drug trafficking was on the rise from the Golden Crescent, which includes Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Here is a long shot idea......maybe we could use this to convince the Chinese to assist us with our troubles in that part of the world. We sure could use all the help we can get.
