We’ve all heard about Mexico’s war on drugs, a fight between rival drug cartels and government forces. Ciudad Juarez remains Mexico’s murder capital and across the border in El Paso it’s also very dangerous. “It’s a war in which the new president can’t claim victory, can’t pull out and which only gets worse”. “Mexico’s drug war could become its Iraq”. So is it really this bad? Yes and its coming closer to home sooner than you think!
The drug-mafias/cartels is one of the most dangerous and evil in our societies, because it is more organized and patronized than the terror perpetrated by the evil fanatics terrorist extremists.
These mafias, with support of some rich and powerful elements of the societies, are bloody ruthless in wiping out any opposition to their wicked activities, which mostly revolve around ‘money for crime’. The best way to deal with them is to strike them where it hurts the most, which is to wipe out their drug-distribution points mostly operated/controlled by their small cartels;
In Mexico, although this job, to attack and incapacitate the small cartels, is well undertaken by the Army, yet it lacks proper intelligence network and coordination.
So Should the Mexican government continue to fight the war on drugs and the cartels? Or should the focus be on tackling its causes like unemployment, lack of education and corruption? How is this affecting day to day life in Mexico? And is the violence just restricted to Northern Mexico?
Mexico Drug War
The Questions we should be all asking is,” is it too late “as The Mexican Cartels are setting shop across the U.S.A? Or have the crackdown in Mexico and the increased border enforcement have impacted the Mexican drug cartel’s business in North America?

Jerry you where assigned to go to Argentina to investigate the July 18th bombing of the Jewish community centre in Argentina , Despite all the international attention, despite investigative help from Israel and the United States, no one has been convicted for the July 18, 1994, bombing of the community center in Argentina , in which 85 people died and more than 300 were injured?
Israeli intelligence has uncovered most of the details of Iran's involvement in the July 1994 bombing of the Jewish community center in Buenos Aires that left some 100 people dead and 250 wounded. The details include an account of a meeting of the Iranian Supreme Council for National Security at which the decision to go ahead with the bombing was made. Israel also has the name of the bomber, Ibrahim Hasin Baro, a Hezbollah man, as well as the transcript of his farewell phone call to Lebanon.
Wanted by Argentina for the 1994 bombing of a jewish charity centre
The Argentine government recently released details of its investigation into another terror incident - the bombing of the Israeli Embassy on March 17, 1992, in which 30 people were killed and more than 200 were wounded. That bombing was also conducted by Iranian intelligence services, with Hezbollah playing a key role in its execution. The methods of operation in both cases were the same.
The decision in principle to strike at the Jewish community center was made in August 1993 at a meeting chaired by Iranian spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Other participants included President Rafsanjani, Intelligence Minister Ali Fallahian, Khamenei's intelligence and security adviser, Muhamed Hijazi, and the country's foreign minister at the time, Velayati.
The meeting was convened because it was to be the second major explosion in the Argentine capital after the embassy bombing 18 months earlier. Israeli intelligence believes the reason Buenos Aires was chosen a second time was because of a deterioration in relations between the two countries at the time.
Intelligence Minister Fallahian was given responsibility for the job. To back up the mission, Khamenei issued a fatwa instructing him to undertake the mission. Fallahian ordered the mission be given to the Overseas Operations Unit of the Hezbollah, headed by Amad Amiad Maghnieh, with Iranian intelligence providing full aid and cooperation. That Hezbollah unit was also responsible for the embassy bombing. The Hezbollah found the suicide bomber, Baro, a Hezbollah man, who arrived a few days before the bombing. A few hours before the bombing, Baro called his family in Lebanon, telling them he was going to be unified with his brother, who was killed in a car bombing attack on Israeli soldiers in Lebanon in 1989.
The Culture and Islamic Guidance Ministry representative in Argentina, Mahsan Rabani, also was involved. In 1993, he began inquiring about renting a commercial van in Buenos Aires, asking specifically for a Renault Traffic, the type of van used by the bomber.
-A powerful car bomb exploded outside the home of the top police official of the northern Mexico border state of Tamaulipas early yesterday, killing two policemen and injuring four officers and three civilians, Jerry although the drug problem has been around for many years, how and when did the situation in Mexico get way out of control?
The country is in the midst of a civil 'drug' war.
-Why did Mexico and the U.S. begin early denial of the severity of what was happening in Mexico in 2005 and even a year later?
American pessimism over Mexico's drug war grows
-Jerry can you tell us the $$ Magnitude of this massive drug Trade?
With billions in drug money the "war" will never end.
-Most North Americans don’t realize it, but Mexico is a major player in global oil production. According to the Energy Information Agency, it was the seventh largest oil-producing country in 2008. Mexico is the U.S.'s second-largest source of imported oil, behind Canada. Oil and gas is the biggest official slice of the Mexican economy, but oil is running out , Mexico's legendary Cantarell field , discovered in 1976 is the sixth largest oil field on Earth but is running out of oil. The government may not have a choice but to turn a blind eye on drug trafficking ?
Diehl: U.S. falls short in helping Mexico end its drug war
-I think Mexico’s drug war has been out of control for some time now jerry . Some agree to legalize some drugs , and the laws that apply to alcohol would apply to marijuana. Surgeons, pilots, bus drivers, etc., have to submit to routine drug and alcohol testing, so I don’t see how that would be any different. Even though alcohol is legal, it is not legal to drink while on the job and the same would go for marijuana. Mexico’s problem has been allowed to fester so long, I don’t see how they are going to get out of it. What about those, as well as some Latin American governments that are talking about drug legalization?
In Tijuana, protestors call for drug legalization and US agents out
-The US shut down the pathway of drugs from Colombia to the US through the Caribbean, but drug lords found an alternate route through Mexico. Whatever didn’t cross the border was sold in the local market, as cartels gained power, they started to get violent because they couldn’t control the market, there were several cartels competing. Due to intense competition, they have turned to kidnapping and racketeering, hence, diversifying their business. Is this why they are getting more barbaric due to competition?
Mexico drug wars: 49 headless, dismembered bodies found dumped
-Was the short or long term answer to the initial problems for the U.S. Homeland just simply building walls and fences for 2000 miles how useless of taxpayer’s money is that?
-Los zetas is the enforcement arm of the gulf cartel , how did the relationship begin?
-What are the financial aspects and structure of this drug war as to transportation from the source countries; routes; and related logistics until they reach the consumer; as well as money laundering to conceal the massive profits?
-Pat Fogarty, superintendent of the RCMP’s combined forces special enforcement unit, is certain that Mexican cartels have made their way above the Canada-U.S. border. It started about a decade ago when Canadian demand for hard drugs took off. Much of that happens along the stretch of border that divides Detroit from Windsor, Ont. It’s “the busiest border crossing for vehicular traffic in North America,”; 28 per cent of Canada-U.S. trade—more than $113 billion per year—crosses the Detroit-Windsor tunnel or Ambassador Bridge. Jerry it seems Some of the drugs stay in Windsor, but a lot “makes its way across the 401 corridor to Toronto or to Montreal via trucks that cross every day?
-From a terrorism standpoint, how are some of the other governments in Latin America confronting this issue, as well as any governments that may be involved in drug and other criminal activity in this hemisphere?
-You have mentioned the Tri-Border of Argentina, Paraguay, and Brazil with the significant Middle Eastern population and terrorist groups; what involvement might they have had in 1992 and 1994 with the bombings in Argentina against the Jewish community?
-What does the new election in Mexico mean to the future of this hemisphere under the new President- elect Pena Nieto?
-This is my suggestion jerry;
