American media reports indicate that the cartels have a presence in Texas high schools and have even hired U.S. soldiers as hitmen. The U.S. Justice Department has indicated that the cartels have a presence in at least 230 American cities. Texas governor Rick Perry and Arizona governor Jan Brewer have long complained that violent criminals from Mexico are crossing the border and threatening American families.
According to Canadian law enforcement officials, Mexican cartels are joining forces with Canadian organized crime around illicit activities including money laundering. There are alleged ties between Mexican drug cartels and Hezbollah. There is a real threat and danger of the emergence of a hemispheric criminal compact with linkages to broader, more sinister networks in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.
But hey. There’s no reason to end the ridicoulous, stupid, counter-productive War on Some Drugs that funds these heinous bastards, is there?
Even something with the intelligence of a flatworm will react to pain, if you apply enough of it. Which makes the morons who support the War on Some Drugs even dumber than flatworms, doesn’t it?
