That's strange, I had a dream a few days ago in which a fire fight took place between cops and a Hispanic drug gang on my college campus. Perhaps these dreams are premonitions of drug related wars coming to America?

How can you guys expect the average Mexican civilian to fight against the government sponsored drug cartels ?!
We're talking billions of tax-free underground revenues for both the US and Mexican governments (and whoever else's countries might be taking a piece of the pie too in return for aiding and abetting).
You really think these drug cartels are operating all on their own ? It may have started out that way decades ago. But with the advantage of newer technologies (computers, satellite, military defense, etc), these cartels needed to take political and law enforcement officials into their circle in order to keep their businesses operating without a hitch.
Come on folks... this is a conspiracy site.
I think most of us on here are more than familiar with the whole CIA-Afghanistan opium trade.
Do you really think the US military complex finances itself solely from the taxpayer dollar ? They would've been bankrupt and out of the game over 3 decades ago. Pfft.
The illusion of the Mexican and US governments talking about "fighting back" and "putting a stop to it" is nothing but smoke and mirrors. I think we all know that.
The only problem these governments are having is the fact that their offspring (the cartels) have gotten out of control and are trying to take over the sandbox. THAT is the true fight going on here between governments and the cartels.
There is no "war on drugs" other than them fighting to make sure that the revenues keep flowing straight into government(s) hands rather than someone else's.

As long as they're tied to the Alphabet Agencies in the US there will be little to no stopping them. Look at Operation Fast and Furious. Plus the war on drugs is way to profitable to stop.edit on 26-11-2012 by XLR8R because: (no reason given)
