Drug has been the vehicle of militarization in the world for centuries and until now it has become the trillion dollar international drug trafficking activity. In history French has conflicted Europe in Napoleonic wars (1803-1815) and alcohol was used to encourage British troops. The first Opium war (1839-1842) between British and Chinese involved mass drug use. British economy was propped up from prodigious opium imports from China and Chinese people were ravaged in millions of afflicted drug addicts. During the Civil War (1861-1865) morphine was used as an anesthetic in field amputations and a way to stave off diarrhea.

By the end of the 19th century there were one million addicts in America. The WWI (1914-1918) did turn millions of doughboys onto tobacco. Cigarettes were distributed as part of military rations and soldiers were ensured to puff freely. The WWII (1939-1945) achieved the goal that soldiers were fed amphetamines. Japanese Kamikaze pilots, primed with the stimulant Philopon, were high on a form of methamphetamine during their suicide missions.The use of amphetamines and other drugs by Nazi military leaders, including Hitler, fueled their aggression, grandiose ideations, and paranoia.

Vietnam war (1955-1975)  marijuana was most commonly smoked in the field after being mixed in a joint with tobacco. By the summer 1971 up to 20% enlisted men was self-identified as heroin addicts. This type of weed was the preferred drug for troops whiling away their draft days away. Sierra Leone Civil War (1991-2002) evil men have wielded powerful drugs to force thousands of children to kill. The substances were ranged from amphetamines and cocaine to “brown-brown”, a snorted mixture of cocaine and gunpowder. The War in Iraq (2003-2011) as much as 30 % Iraqi and police forces as prescription drug addicts. Artane is their drug of choice. Used to treat Parkinson’s disease, these pills were thounght to provide energy and courage.

In the War in Afghanistan (2001-Present) heroin and opium play a primary role in the country that produces 90% of the world’s opium. Some of that opium is exported and some is sold to addicts within Afghanistan, but in both cases money goes to the Taliban. In the present Syria war Captagon or the Middle Eastern amphetamine that has not only fueled the war but also instigated the favorite to combatants in their brutal war. It is little more than a generic name for mixtures of amphetamine and caffeine or amphetamine and ephedrine. But, it’s still been the kind of stimulant drug beloved by fighters who desire the energy, alertness and motivation of causing terrible murder. It can reduce hunger, sharpen focus and allow fighters to keep going under terrible bombardment. Fighters on all sides from government troops to ISIS jihadis in Syria have used Captagon.
