"Cartels" do not fear the CIA, the CIA does not fear the "cartels", though there is likely plenty of distrust. They are joined at the hip,
interdependent on each other. Those CIA "advisors" are here attempting to run the show.
Compartmentalized as things are, even now the common Joe Six-pack American knows US letter agencies control the global drug business. Only local
yocals are not aware of that and are simply duped "tools of the trade."
The world is rife with fear, this is a major reason people are always fighting with each other. In psychology it is widely acknowledged that bullies
on playgrounds bully because they are afraid of their own inadequacy, afraid that if they do not bully then they would become bullied. As adults we
are merely older children, the 'adults' of this world are merely carrying on the tradition set from their past, different organizations, different
nations, different belief systems, different religions all fighting one another because they are afraid of one another. They are afraid that if they
do not prove themselves in battle, whatever form that battle may take, then they will be considered weak and therefor mercilessly attacked.
The US is not the only country in the world, it is not the only organization in the world, it is not even the most powerful country in the world. The
US and US interests are in a world filled with a variety of players all vying for the top dog spot, but no one has that spot, not even the US. In the
wild it is common to find animals that stand on their hind legs in order to appear larger and ward of predators, in the human world you will find
similar efforts. Governments such as the US often try to make themselves appear more powerful than they actually are, so you'll find them placing
information implying that they control this that or the other simply in an effort to make it appear as though they are in control of everything, to
make themselves appear more powerful than they actually are. The truth is that the US is not very powerful at all, especially now. The US is in a
massive downward spiral and they know this, or should anyway.

America doesn't "feed the poor" in the world any more than we feed cattle to fatten them up for slaughter. What ever goodwill the US extends to
developing nations is no more than buying influence, making them an offer they can't refuse. We let our own suffer and go hungry in the US because
we/they don't need to buy their/our influence, we are owned by them already. If we actually possessed self-ownership then drugs and substances
would not even be an issue to discuss - a problem that would not then exist.

Actually cattle are fed for the purpose of fattening them up in many instances, even beef with a large fat content is more to sell. However; I agree
that the US generally only gives aid for the purposes of receiving something in return, what that might be can vary from case to case. The US, like
much of the world, lets their own suffer because they lack the ability to stop it, even if they wanted to. We simply don't have the time to help
people out because we're spending all of it on competition, conflict, strategic positioning, deception, political posturing, etc. As for being
"owned" by the US, you have a point, I think many see it that way, that simply because you are born in a certain country that makes you subject to
that countries laws, but in reality that's not the case. I am not American, I'm just a human being. Many falsely fear that if a person is allowed
to be free they'd simply become lazy do nothings or violent kill every things, but I disagree. As a fledgling race of beings we had no laws, no
governments and no corporations, yet we took it upon ourselves to invent the wheel and the hammer so clearly we have what it takes to "work" without
the threat of punishment for not "working."
