You cannot fight a military war against drugs. All that you will do is destroy your own country.
Three Mexican army officers and 16 soldiers were ordered detained Monday in connection with the weekend shooting deaths of two women and three children at a military checkpoint in the northwestern state of Sinaloa. […]
Three of the four women in the car were rural schoolteachers. The dead included Griselda Galaviz Barraza, 25, and her three children, ages 7, 4 and 2.
Defense officials said the troops were members of the 24th Motorized Infantry Regiment involved in “the permanent campaign against drug trafficking.”
Well, at least those kids won’t use drugs.
This is sickening. And inevitable. Using force to attempt to undo economic laws of supply and demand inevitably result in corruption and collateral damage. That’s a fact.
