While the Western and Gulf media lead people to believe that jihadists get their nourishment primarily from the verses of the Koran, the seizures made in Syria show that in reality, they feed on Captagon.
In two days, the Syrian Arab Army took hold of a car full of Captagon tablets and a tank truck containing a ton.
Captagon (Fenetylline hydrochloride) is an amphetamine that causes euphoria and numbs the pain. Mixed with other drugs like hashish, it constitutes the basic feed ration for the jihadists. Combatants neither feel their own suffering nor the suffering they inflict on others. Therefore, they can commit all sorts of atrocities, laughing.
Contrary to popular belief, the jihadists are not driven by religious concerns, but by the quest of immediate pleasures. They are mainly recruited among hooligans and prisoners.
Manufactured in 2011 by NATO in a laboratory in Bulgaria, Captagon is now manufactures throughout the Middle East, including the Syrian territory.
