PLAN MEXICO: Cocaine and the CIA
Presidents Felipe Calderon and George W. Bush are preparing to launched a billion dollar drug interdiction project that the Mexican press has named "Plan Mexico". The controversial plan is being compared to the failed "Plan Columbia" that actually increased the amount of coc aine, heroin and marijuana entering the United States from the nation of Columbia. "Plan Mexico" is being launched shortly after a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) connected jet plane crashed outside Cancun, Mexico with 4 tons of coc aine.
Karl Rove Courting Radical, Racist Mexican Group
By Jim Kouri
July 10, 2006
Karl Rove, President George W. Bush’s political advisor, and Senator Sam Brownback (R-TX), are planning to meet with the the left-wing Mexican group La Raza this week.
La Raza is considered by many to be a radical racist group promoting hatred towards the “Gringo.” In fact, La Raza means “The Race.”
Former President Bill Clinton heads the list of speakers for the annual meeting of La Raza’s national council. The Rev. Jesse Jackson will appear on a panel. Observers say they expect to see the likes of Clinton and Jackson meeting with a racist group of Mexicans, but they are surprised that two supposed conservative Republicans would give the group credibility by meeting with them.

On the one hand the US demand leads to the cartels and on the other the US Government is the one funding the fight against drugs.
The U.S. creates the drug cartels, not by demanding drugs, but by attempting to prohibit drugs.
People do drugs, it is natural and it isn't going to change.
Attempting to control these substances physically is what creates such powerful organized crime.
Another misconception about NCLR is the allegation that we support a “Reconquista,” or the right of Mexico to reclaim land in the southwestern United States. NCLR has not made and does not make any such claim; indeed, such a claim is so far outside of the mainstream of the Latino community that we find it incredible that our critics raise it as an issue. NCLR has never supported and does not endorse the notion of a “Reconquista” or “Aztlán.”
I agree it isn't the demand but the prohibition that creates organized crime. The prohibition is the Govs war on drugs. So the prohibition both creates powerful crime organizations and at the same time funds law enforcment to fight these crime organizations and all along the US citizens foot the bill.
"It's about time they arrested the drug dealer," Culberson said in a statement issued by his office in Washington. "It's long past time for them to release agents Ramos and Compean."
