Finally, drug war truth

"The U.S. bears much of the blame for violent drug wars roiling Mexico because of its demand for drugs and its failure to stop illegal weapons from crossing the border, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday, accepting ''shared responsibility'' for the problem."

Now, we either have to significantly and measurably cut U.S. drug use and demand by a date certain, or consider legalisation.

If people are going to use recreational drugs, they should be buying them from Budweiser or Phillip Morris (regulated, legally imported and taxed) rather than from La Familia or any of the other drug cartels. That would end narco terrorism, narco violence and illicit narco wealth.
