U.S. Tells South America To Shut Up About Legalizing Drugs

http://beforeitsnews.com/story/1830/198/NL/

Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano has a message for everyone who thinks the drug war is bad: you’re wrong, it’s awesome. (Reuters) – Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano defended Washington’s drug war strategy on Monday despite calls by some Latin American leaders to consider decriminalizing narcotics. … “I would not agree with the premise that the drug war is a failure,” Napolitano said. “It is a continuing effort to keep our peoples from becoming addicted to dangerous drugs.”

The Drug War started with Nixon and escalated with Reagan has been a complete and tragic failure. It has emboldened the self righteous demigods to arrogantly legislate their morality on the masses. The same that say they care for life, Pro-Life, inflict misery, pain, and suffering on the weak and feudal people who just wanted a chance,,,, or someone,,,,, anyone to give a crap.

Ahahahahahhahhahahhahahahhahahahhahah....

Drug war? Do you know who is winning? Cartel bosses... they dont give a shit about their minions getting nabbed so long as the 'drug war' allows them to reap obscene profits (even by Wall St standards) on a "product" that a good chunk of people get addicted to because it is illegal...

Heck most of the people in the drug trade admit that they fear legalization more than anything else.

But then again, agencies like the CIA (and others around the world) need the drug trade to be illegal so that they can run their own trade to get the cash for some of their ops...

shut down the border with Mexico. shoot to kill anyone transporting drugs over the border. treat the drug trade like muslim terrorist, kill them with drones and special forces, they will stop eventually. In the U.S. legalization won't help, look at Amsterdamn a bunch of idiots running around stoned and addicted. The communist governments in Latin America like Chavez's benefit from the drug trade.
