Criminal Gangs Turn Parts of Mexico into War Zones


www.voanews.com

Much of Mexico is now under the grip of drug-related violence that has claimed 30,000 lives since president Felipe Calderon declared war on organized criminal gangs in December, 2006. While polls show support for the president's policy, they also show that a large percentage of people believe the government is losing the war.

"People sometimes think I exaggerate when I talk about Mexico being at war, but there are certain parts of the country which clearly have war-like conditions," said Salazar.

What advantage can a government gain by inducing crime on their streets? Simply said, the governments can gain a compliant populace that is asking for more police intrusion.
So if there is no drug violence someplace their govenment has incentive to create some or to take it up a level.

Drug violence does not just stop at Mexico's borders but is a problem throughout the western world. Many personal privacy rights have already been surrendered in this War.

If there seems to be a lack of logic applied in worldwide drug-contol measures, like continual forbiddance of a substance that appears to have more benefits than dangers, then this reasoning can clear the picture up a bit.


"The question is what is the United States going to do to help the Mexican government, to help the Mexican people confront these organizations on the one hand and, too, the us cannot assume that this type of violence is not going to filter back into the United States," said Ana Maria Salazar.


Now that Mexico President Felipe Calderón has a virtual civil war going on courtesy of his ambitious Drug War policies it would be time for Big Brother US to step in and show how to strip the liberties from a traditionally free people.


But Mexico is a sovereign country and the United States has few options to help beyond training and material support. Under the Merida initiative, the United States is providing Mexico with $1.4 billion in anti-drug assistance and on a visit to Mexico earlier this week U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced $500 million in additional aid for this year.


Felipe Calderón was elected in a very tight election. All reports after the election had his opponent in the lead, his opponent who was not at all favored by the US. The announcement of who was to become Mexico's leader was delayed for two weeks and Calderón was declared the winner. Immediately he began his Drug War which has now claimed 30,000 lives since its inception. It would appear Calderón had a clear-cut agenda from the start.

The question is what is the US going to do, well, I believe nothing yet, they are making too much funding for their black operations right now, eventually they will

All the U.S. wants from Mexico is the drug trade. Oil is worth so much more to the U.S. than drugs so we only invade countries and lend a hand if there's oil. So we won't invade/help. Ever.

Mexico has never considered before that it itself had a terrible drug problem. They were content with enterprising spirit to supply the world's largest drug-consumming nation with what it hungered for. The war right now seems geared at deciding WHO will profit and how to share the wealth - this is a distributors' war. The other upside to the war is the unrest it creates in order to prompt the people to ask for intervention. It is self-feeding and NWO genius at work.

Very true about Black Ops. Former Panama President Noriega got into a lot of hot water when he told congress about his drug deals with Ollie North for money to buy missiles to sell the Iranians which funds were diverted to the Nicaragua Contras, which itself was another no-no. Many more instances of Black Op funding with drugs on record.

Mexico has plenty of oil, so why haven't we taken that oil? It is much closer [/sarcasm]

Mexicans are greedy, we offer two fers on things like tacos and gum. Not oil and drugs. Soon enough my friend soon enough.....the virus will eventually spread south too.

Good plan. We need to try something, the current "plan" isn't working.
