Earth Threat #7: Other Atrocities

A Listmania! list by Robert David STEELE Vivas (Oakton, VA United States)
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)
The list author says: “There are ten threats, twelve policies, and eight players other than the EU and USA that matter if we are to get a grip on our future. Each of these 30 topics is addressed at www.earth-intelligence.net, and in Amazon discussion groups being created to bring together authors and readers to form a global information sharing network that will be superior to what secret intelligence and secret government bureaucracies can put together. This is how we save Humanity and our Earth–by taking back the power over relevant information and the policies that have here-to-fore been dominated by special interests instead of ourselves, the taxpayers and end-users.”

31.  Transnational Threats: Smuggling and Trafficking in Arms, Drugs, and Human Life (Praeger Security International) by Kimberely L. Thachuk
The list author says:
“Drugs can be an atrocity when carried to an extreme, for example, when CIA protected the Nicaraguan Contra, Blandon, who supplied all the cocaine that street entrepreneur Ricky Ross turned into crack cocaine at $5 a hit.  Red lining poor neighborhoods is also an atrocity, in my view.”
