This is what it’s like to raid an opium compound (3 VIDEOS)

This is the 2nd Battalion, 9th Marines Echo Company in Helmand, Afghanistan conducting a search and seizure raid on a known Taliban opium factory earlier this year.

It doesn’t take too long for the Taliban to take action.

The Taliban is behind these opium facilities that process poppies into narcotics. These are quickly sold off to fund the insurgency and buy supplies and equipment.

According to Funker530, the blue bags are full of pure calcium which is used to process the poppies.

This footage is part of an ongoing documentary of the war in Afghanistan. If you’d like to get involved with the Funker crew and company head over to their Facebook page and their Twitter feed.
