Can anyone say the War on Drugs is working? Is it reasonable to think drugtrafficking can be terminated while demand runs endlessly? Is it even possible supply and demand have no correlation? Can one country fight a war for two independent countries?
I pray daily for a war with Mexico. Mexicans are a disgraceful people who have an even more disgraceful government. Let them fight their own drug war. I dare those cartels to even try coming HERE.
America needs to nuke Mexico and take over the oil wells. Making Cancun American soil would be nice too. Anonymous in Indianapolis
Is it possible for a human being to be so intellectually challenged that spewing the above quote would actually make sense? My response to Anonymous in Indianapolis is: “Wipe the blow off your nose and open your eyes..Your line of recreational nose candy is costing us our lives!”
Ever see the Brad Pitt movie Babel? It’s a sad reality, our lives intersect in ways we may never consider. I agree, YOU have a right to your recreational vices, but it’s come down to the point where your weekend blow and weed fix has trumped MY rights, that I have a problem with. You’re taking MY right to raise my children in a safe and secure environment. You may very well, at any given time, take MY very right to live. Are you starting to see the big picture? My Drug War is Your drug War.
The BBC News is reporting that the drug related violence in Mexico was especially intense this weekend: Eleven were killed, including a young girl. This violence came shortly after at least one thousand people marched through Tijuana demanding and end to the violence. Even worse, this violence comes after the brutal kidnapping/murder of a young boy earlier this month. So what is Mexican president, Felipe Calderon doing about all this? Congratulating himself on job well done. Of course. You can always count on the Mexican government to be in step with it’s people.
It’s so easy to sit and judge someone and their efforts, especially when one doesn’t own a mirror. Is it bloody here? Without a doubt. Is it lawless? Damn close. Mexico is heading towards an anarchy, the cartels are simply too strong. While President Calderon’s efforts are impressive, it is simply a losing battle. We can’t stop YOU from getting what you want, no matter how many lives we sacrafice. I find it incredible the U.S. has the technology to spot a pimple on a mole’s ass in Taiwan, but can’t spot narco tunnels built into their own territory and used to recieve drugs from Mexico and supply arms to Mexico. Where does YOUR responsibility lie? Where are YOUR efforts?
Plan Mexico is not a plan, it’s a farce. We are fighting a war for both countries. Let the U.S. keep the money, there is not an amount of money in this world that can genuinely stop supply to demand, especially when there is no true interest in stopping it. As for Anonymous in Indianapolis’ wish to see the cartels try to enter the U.S.: BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.
This isn’t a game, I could easily wish for the U.S. to fight their own war, let them deal with the cartels, but seeing your children dead, would not bring back ours. I wouldn’t wish the blood and violence we are living on my worse enemy. The truth is, our lives are the only thing stopping you from getting your wish, Anonymous. Believe it or not, there are many who still beleive this war can be won, with or without YOUR help. There are still men and women in Mexico, amongst our disgusting people and our disgusting government as you tenderly put it, that are willing to bet their lives on their hope for a safer world for you and I. Eventually, the cartels will take them too, it is then, after wiping their hands of Mexico, they will knock on YOUR door, looking for YOUR child, wife, or husband. It is then you will begin to see mutilations, decapitations, torture, and corruption up close and personal. Lastly, it is then, Anonymous, if we do not act fast to create a true bilateral plan, hope will be lost..for both of us.
