Exclusive -- Arizona Sheriff on 21st Century 'Opium Wars':• https://www.breitbart.com
Mark Lamb, sheriff of Pinal County, AZ, noted on Wednesday's edition of the Breitbart News Daily podcast with host Alex Marlow that China supplies transnational criminal cartels based in Mexico with most essential ingredients required to produce fentanyl.
"Centuries ago, there were the Opium Wars that literally almost brought a dynasty to its knees, and I think that China is now exacting that same fate on the West [and] on America," Lamb stated. "They're bringing in the majority of the precursors that it takes to create the fentanyl. They give it to the cartels in Mexico, and then Mexico is producing the product that they're transporting into Arizona and into America."
