A losing battle in the WOsD
Under pressure from the US, Mexico declared war on the drug dealers. They're losing. Badly. The new leader, Calderon, is doing the macho swagger and declaring the government won't give in but the only thing the escaltion of that war has done, is strengthen the cartels that didn't get busted.
You can read the failure in the numbers. There are more hard drugs crossing the border while the Mexican government is burning down pot fields and the violence is so bad now that the locals are afraid to leave their homes.
Could it be any clearer that in the war on some drugs, the drugs will always win?
