Narco-terror is terrorism; Narco-smuggling is terror-enabling

I've said it before, but it is worth saying again:

This author's take -- Narco-terrorism is functionally indistinguishable from purely political terrorism; it is in fact one of the mechanisms by which terrorists fund and enable their activities. Furthermore, the techniques and operational capabilities of narco-smuggling are perfectly transferable to the needs of political terrorist organizations.

An even better take -- The always superb Douglas Farah, on the shortcomings of the latest National Drug Threat Assessment from the U.S. National Drug Intelligence Center.

It is time to wise up about this.

Mexican DTOs (drug trafficking organizations) are the greatest drug trafficking threat to the United States; they control most of the U.S. drug market and have established varied transportation routes, advanced communications capabilities, and strong affiliations with gangs in the United States. Mexican DTOs control a greater portion of drug production, transportation, and distribution than any other criminal group or DTO.

Their extensive drug trafficking activities in the United States generate billions of dollars in illicit proceeds annually. Law enforcement reporting indicates that Mexican DTOs maintain drug distribution networks or supply drugs to distributors in at least 230 U.S. cities

Don't think I haven't been paying attention--

and it is not getting better--

why? because this very and very significant issue seems to be hidden under a rug!

why? I have no clue!

Border security has no moolah?

Why--- well, this is easy to figure out.

If Obama wants to pull the troops out of Iraq, and soldiers are soooo programmed for fighting for the good-- Put these guys at the border and pay them big time to deal with narco-traffickers who love murder as a high! The American soldiers would wipe them out in one second!!!!!

They are trained to deal with the big chara, not a bunch of worthless punks! LOL
