Madrid.- Spain?s Civil Guard on Thursday seized one ton of cocaine smuggled in containers from Latin America, including the Dominican Republic and arrested 18 on drug trafficking charges, EFE reports.

The confiscation led to the bust of one of the most important networks that traffics drugs between the Americas and Spain, where it relied on accomplices in the ports at Barcelona and Valencia, according to the Civil Guard.

During the months-long investigation, officials seized two containers at Barcelona in May, one with 403 kilos of cocaine from Nicaragua and another with 318, shipped from the Dominican Republic.

One month before the agents seized 225 kilos at Valencia in a container from South America, and in January found 10 kilos of the same drug in a cottage in Pontevedra (Northwest).

Ten were arrested in Barcelona, six in Galicia and two in Portugal, according to sources quoted by EFE.

And all along I thought we were winning the "war on drugs". Did we not buy a fleet of anti drug airplanes from Brazil a while ago to stop all this?

In today's "papers", the head of the "Anti Narcotics" police, "General Fulano de Tal", responded to the newspaper stories about "Drug Manufacturing Laboratories" now operating in the south of the DR!
He said that it was not possible, that the DR was "Manufacturing" drugs, because, the drugs were "manufactured" in other countries, and only modified in the DR!
"Perfect "Dominian Il-Logic"!!!!
"No Es Mi Culpa",..."No Fiu Yo", !!!!!
There is no "War On Drugs" here in the DR, A "War of Words", YES,a "War of Lies", "SI"!!!!!!
CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC
What do Dominicans love most in the World???
"MONEY"!!!
More "Drugs", = More "Money".
Do they care if it's illegal, and even LESS, if it's Immoral?????????
You do the "MATH".
