(WatchDogReport.org) – Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid stronger than morphine by orders of magnitude and was initially developed as a patch for cancer patients to wear on their skin to help with severe and chronic pain. But, because of the intense high it brings, it soon took hold as an illicit drug brought over the Mexican border by the drug cartels and often disguised as, or laced into, other pills such as oxycodone, killing all too many people. Now the possibility of something even more sinister — as unbelievable as that sounds — is being raised by retired Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent in Charge of the Special Operations Division Derek Maltz about the actual source of the drug: the People’s Republic of China (PRC).
China using fentanyl as weapon in ‘unrestricted warfare’ against US: former DEA special ops chief | Just The News https://t.co/N5jPvt2aFA

Speaking on Just the News’s “No Noise” television show on January 6, Maltz said there is strong evidence the PRC ships “precursor ingredients” to Mexican drug lords who then use them to create the fentanyl and smuggle it into the United States. This is the same warning he gave when speaking to The Epoch Times in August 2021. He contends it is part of the plan put forth by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) as a means of “unconventional warfare” that aims to propel the Asian nation to the pinnacle of world power, at the expense of America.
Before one puts this into the category of a conspiracy theory, one needs to be aware of a 2005 speech. China’s then-Defense Minister Chi Haotian specifically talked about leading the Chinese people to colonize countries like the United States, Canada, and Australia. He even spoke of needing the means to kill the people without the damage nuclear weapons would leave behind, and considering the number of deaths attributed to fentanyl (~107,000 in 2021), it’s easy to see how that would fit the bill.
According to a DEA report dated December 20, the agency seized more than 379 million potentially “deadly doses” of the drug in 2022, and when one realizes the 2020 census put the country’s population at just under 331.5 million, the math becomes frighteningly clear. Maltz is not the only one raising the alarm; Reps. Mary Miller (R-IL) and David Trone (D-MD) have both warned about the problem, and they all see the desperate need to stop the flow of poison at the border.
