According to a New York Times report this past Tuesday , Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano called the war against drugs “a demand issue and a supply issue.” Now I understand what’s going on with the violence on the Mexican border. Its all the result of globalization. We have a voracious appetite for drugs, Mexico has tons of drugs, drugs are illegal, drug lords need to kill policeman and each other in order to export the drugs , drug lords need guns to kill and maim (As the CEO of the NRA pointed out, men with the guns make the rules) , we have lots of guns to export . Supply and demand takes over. Drug lords become billionaires, gun suppliers become millionaires, more Americans become druggies, more Mexicans die in the violence. More importantly mideast style violence comes to our shores! Is someone trying to resurrect the Mexican-American War?
