They should smoke more of their product.

Then they might forget what they were supposed to be fighting about.

Guns , goons, gold and drugs abound. Pres Calderon is meeting Obama tomorrow. Maybe they have something in mind to solve this problem.

As long as there is a demand, there will be a supplier.

If Colombia can do it, any nation can.

They had insurgents on the left and paramilitaries on the right and drug cartels dead center. And who was the largest consumer of Colombian coca?

Have you read up on Columbia recently? The cartels never went anywhere. Where do you think Mexico gets the cocaine that we as a nation put up our noses?

The Mexican government and military is corrupt from top to bottom. Yes, including Calderon. The cartels are in control of much of the country. It's going to go one-way only, and not for the better.

It was predestined to fail from the start, as was ours.

"Wars" against inanimate objects or human behaviors tend to fail. Government prohibition against specific commodities create black markets and drive up the price of the prohibited commodity. This in turn provides great incentive for criminal elements to focus on the high-value activity of smuggling the prohibited commodity. Meanwhile, none of this has any effect on demand.

This is one of those realities that has been proven and observed time and time again, yet we continue to think we can change the reality if only we throw more government at the problem. This is the "conservative" version of a statist mental disorder often attributed only to "liberals" - it's the flip-side of the welfare state coin: the nanny state.

If they wanted it to stop, they could stop it. If we wanted it to stop we could stop it. However, it benefits too many on both sides to stop it.

Considering that the Obama regime is supplying weapons to the drug cartels, I would say it doesn’t look good for improvement.
