Does anyone honestly think all the drug corruption is here in Mexico? I am not sure where it all began but it sure got a good foothold when the
British were doing their illicit opium trade with China, and I still can't find any evidence that has ever ended as it appears to only have gone
viral, global, and expanded the depth and reach prohibition that has only made it all that more lucrative a trade, along with being a governmental
foot in the door to eveyone's livingrooms. Unregulated illicit industry, undocumented zillions, and more than a hint that powerful governments are in
on it all too... Naw, couldn't be true.
I live in Morelia where this mayor was abducted from. I never heard anything about this incident or her struggles with dark forces but I am not a big
local news hound. I read the OP article to try to find just what she did to make enemies but it didn't give details about that. I hesitate to call
them "cartels" as seems to be the vogue in reporting on this whole business, but from all I can see their competition with each other rather than
collusion seems to defy the definition - "A group of businesses or nations that collude to limit competition within an industry or market" and
"cartelism" seems to be more like what makes the US and its interests tick than just plain old "capitalism" as it is labelled, packaged, and marketed
Anyway, the solution suggested in this thread seems to be influencing the Mexican government's line of thinking about their role in this now that the
US can't really keep its Drug War popular and can't really expect other neighbor nations to police US borders from anything that may cross them. From
the same OP link -
...after decades of using force to combat the gangs, it is U.S. lawmakers who are the criminals' biggest problem.
(censored by Eron to comply with the board censors), as recently voted for by (censored) states, may wipe billions of
dollars from the cartels’ annual profits.
And it has left politicians in Mexico with a tough question: How can they continue to justify spending money – and lives – fighting drug
distribution to America when it will be (status censored) in some states from next month?
Mexico presidential advisor Luis Videgaray said in a radio interview last week: 'Obviously, we can’t handle a product that is illegal in Mexico,
trying to stop its transfer to the United States, when in the United States, at least in part of the United States, it now has a different
The new article has other comments that don't bear up under scrutiny like their reference to 90% of the coc aine used in the US originating in
Mexico - as far as I know it does not grow here and ALL of it originates in South America. It would seem to me the US bears more of a responsibility
at their border than does Mexico to police it, and it might help to curb the US taste for the products, like Just Say NO!
I truly feel for this lady and her family. I feel sad for all Mexicans caught up in this dirty business. There seem to be governmental or
quasi-governmental forces at play and out of public view on BOTH sides that don't want this business to end, they seem to just want to wage war on it
to CONTROL it, is all. Now, maybe this ugly episode is drawing to a close. I just hope it does not become like alcohol and get touted as a national
past-time fit for every special occasion - including getting off work - and be advertised, branded, and sold at almost every public event. People can
poison and kill themselves without the media fanfare. Just let it be and not try to make something more of it.
