Yes, we are giving $400 million in aid to Mexico to help fight “the war on drugs” there. But what most don’t know about that money, is that it is really going to more defense contractors. What we are giving Mexico is equipment and training from the Military Industrial Complex while the bodies pile up there and here. We also provide private security companies to Mexico to train their operatives in torture techniques. Part 2 of this after the break.
The proponent of the SPP approach to the use of the military to address the problem with drugs, unbelievably states that the purpose of this tactic is NOT to eradicate the drug trafficking problem, but instead to hamper the POWER of the major drug traficers.
Like our plan in Columbia, where the very same process is in place, the drug production actually INCREASED after billions were funneled there to help the Colombian government crack down on drug traffickers. So, what is the actual plan being implemented? What are they doing that creates MORE narcotics exports, Not less?
That same proponent of the government’s plan, during the debate talks about immigration into Mexico from their southern border. He says in their country that immigrants without documentation are routinely arrested and should be. In fact, much of the equipment we are providing them is going to secure their southern boarder, while the Mexican government provides maps and assistance to help Mexican illegally cross ours.
