Drugs as tools of social war and violence

I have been expanding my reasearch even further. I decided to expand my search more toward the government side. What is the governmnet doing towards the drug war? What steps are they taking toward the drug war? Well in a recent search i came upon some information. A mexican state spokesperson mentioned the involment of american officials in the drug war. Guillermo Villanueva was the spokesperson for state of mexico.  What he said was unexpected and left everyone in awe. They were not just any officials though, they were from the CIA. The drug dealer metioned one in particular and descibed the involment of the officer in the narcotis. Villanueva mentioned that the CIA was trying to control and manage the illegal drug market. He said that it was beneficial for the government to do so. The speach led people to search further. Are we safe from the world of drugs in the United States? Is the U.S even trying? I read further along this article and i came to the conclusion that america is not doing enough. It may to benefit the governent as a whole. Villanueva mentioned that in recent studies mexican officials made it was found that indeed the CIA had part in the distribution of illegal drugs. Who is it exactly? Is every CIA official aware of what is going on? How many unloyal CIA members are there? The war on drugs has brainwashed millions of people. Even the government has proven to be corrupt. Even top level mexican officials admitted that it was almmost impossible to pass any time of illegal drug without the help of U.S officials. It is believed that America is aiding these drug cartels. America is providing them wih entrance and distribution in the united states. The rumors of United States aiding mexico and promoting the drug war might just be true. Something that also caught my attention was the border. The border between mexico and the United States. It is believed that the border is kept open in certain places on purpose to aid the drug cartels. I believe there is no way that Mexico can transport so many drugs into america without the help of Americans. It is said that it is getting worse along the border. even though laws have been enforced. People somehow manage to get drugs through the border. I was able to see first hand that the borders were not as secure as we thought they might be. I interviewed a cousin of mine who recently came into the united states illegally. He told me that right before he crossed the border some American officials asked for their share of the money immigrants pay to illlegaly cross the united states. He told me he could not believe that those American officials were willing to take money to let them go by. He also mentioned the many underground tunnels they encountered while crossing through Mexico. My cousin said that many of those tunnels were meth labs and that they traveled all the way to arizona. He mentioned that the drug cartels also  charge a quota if you “cross their territory”. He said that mexican and American have such close encounters. He said that United States was as corrupt as mexico. there have been many drug dealers who have operated in and out of mexico and the united states. How did they manage to get through such secure border? Is the united states only pretending to help on the drug on war? It is very interesting that Unites States is so worried about stopping the war on drugs, yet the secret alliance to mexico is sickning.

Drugs as tools of Social War and Violence

I was searching for more information on drugs and the social war. I came upon a website that gave me chills when i started searching through. The website was called world of the drugdealers. It is a website i found in spanish. The publisher made sure that all of the war on drugs was explained. The publisher explains the horrors and violence that is lived in mexico. The drug war is basically made up of people who have become wealthy due to that. Those people become drug dealers or drug lords. The war started because competition started. Many drug lords started appearing around 2007 and they started giving their own organizations names. The drug lords began to compete for land and for buyers of their drugs. The distrubution of drugs has been detected all the was across the country. The publisher gives us a brief overview on the blog. He also gave some very important information on the involvment of the United States and other countries in the drug war. The website is very gruesome to see as it has many pictures and videos showing violence. The publisher began by nameing some very important people in the drug war. He then proceeded to naming some countries like United States, Costa Rica, Panama, Sauid arabia and other countries. The publisher had so much information , enough to get himself in trouble . He stated that no one in mexico could talk about what they had seen or done. He stated that everyone in Mexico lived in silence for fear getting killed.  He explained that if someone was to watch a killing that that person had to keep quiet. He stated that somehow the drug dealers always found out. In some of the articles he described the ways that the drug dealers took revenge on the people that told on them. He also descibed the differente ways people are killed. Some organizations commit crimes by jut shooting people.Other organizations decapitate, fatally torture people. Some kill innocent people, and some organizations kill other organizations that kill innocent people. As the publisher describes it, it is a mess in mexico and sadly if nothing can be done, soon such violence will make its way up into the United State. I began to look through the photos on the blog and they were really grueome. Some pictures show the decapitation of women, men , and kids. The videos showed real life footage of decapitations and killings. The drug dealers have gotten in the habbit of leaving many people headless and sending there heads to their families or the organizations they belonged to. It seems to me that everyone wants a spot in the drug war. It also seems to me that United States along with mexico is losing the war on drugs. Drug dealers and abusers have filled up the prisons in the United states. The United states has been at work with drugs for a very long time. Unfortunately, the war has not been stopped and i believe it is getting harder and harder to stop or control. The United States has enforcement pleanty of operations to catch drug lords and drug dealers, but somehow they keep drug dealing. Somehow drugs keep getting imported into the United states. Is the governemnt involved? I believe it is. I can not wrap my finger around the whole situation. How is it possible for so many drugs to get transported into the U.S. from all over the world. How are tunnels built under teh border of mexico and the united states? Who is operating those tunnels from abov? When will the government be fair to its people and give them liberty and justice? when willthe government stop these organizations? Is there and end to the social war and violence?

DRUGS AS TOOLS OF SOCIAL WAR AND VIOLENCE

I have been doing more research on social war and violence. It seems to me that the violence and war get worse every year. Many countries spend millions of dolares trying to get drugs and crimes related to drugs off of the streets. I came upon some statististics that can help me give you an idea of how much is spent on the drug war. Alone in the U. S., $51,000,000,000 are spent each year on drug war.  Milliones of people got to jail each year with charges of drug use, selling or buying. The number of people that have been reported dead in mexico as of 2006 have been a startling 70,00+, the cause would be drug wars. Mexico again comes to play a huge role drug war around the world. Mexico has supplied the U.S with heroin. Mexico is also the largest foreign supplier and producer of meth and marijuana. As a result of competition to produce and sell the most illegal drugs, cartels have formed. Cartels are formed out of people who had no choice as to join them. The cartels are lead by very powerful and wealthy men.The drug war has gotten so bad in mexico. The mexican government has gotten to the point where they must fight against mexico to end the war. The cartels have begun fighting each other for territory. Territory is necessary for them to build underground tunnels and meth labs. There are many cartels and organizations in Mexico expanding into the United States. Many cartel owners in the military or where in some sort of government system.  Sadly its not just mexico. United States has unwillingly contributed to the war. I found that United States has provided mexico with over 70% of the guns found in mexico. In other words, The government helps the drug cartels and the war to keep going. The mexican government itself is a corrupt system. How is it possible to get thousands and thousands of guns from the U. S to mexico? How can ninety percent of cocaine collected in the United States come from mexico? Where is the Government? Are they actually doing something about it, or are they in the social war and violence themselves? Here are some more statistics. Mexico has retrieve and unbelieving $19 to $29 billion dolares from sales in the United States each year. The system is in fact corrupt and the need for power only pushes them to ask for more and more. The United States has provided Mexico with help. The help was not much. Drug trafficking still managed to get through Mexico and into the U.S. Dozens of councilmen, mayors, newspaper publishers, military and goverment official have been killed. Kidnappings, extortions, and mutilations of civilians have been caused by cartels and their drug war. The United states has been cracking down drug cartels within the U.S. For example, a huge drug bust was made in june of this year. The bust happend in Atlanta Ga.  The raid consisted of the swat team and many officers. The raid was a neighborhood home. The sheriffs office had recieved tips on the house. It was believed by many that the house was being used as a meth lab. The raid turned into a multimillion dollar drug bust. There where seventeen members of the drug ring.They shot at the officials and the officials shot back. Swat team members where injured during the operation. The operation was a success. There where a couple of buses that where used for trasporting the drugs. The buses were used to transport people from the united states to mexico and back. It was only a cover up as tons  of drugs were getting trasnported as well. How was someone able to bring so many drugs into the U.S without anyone knowing? What was there no security at the time the buses were being searched. Where they ever searched?
