The Murderers of Mexico

The Murderers of Mexico
October 28, 2010
Alma Guillermoprieto

Excerpt from this fascinating piece in the New York Review of Books which reaffirms the failure of the ‘war on drugs’ which we’ve been citing as a pretext for militarization of Latin America and the Caribbean:

“It’s not that Guzmán has influence whereas other traffickers do not; it’s that every trafficker has a great many appointed officials and elected politicians on his payroll but Guzmán has more than the rest. The most distressing conclusion one can draw from de Mauleón’s articles is not that President Calderón’s war on drugs is being lost but that it may not even be fought.”
