Cost-benefit analysis


MEXICO CITY Ö A government-run human rights commission accused soldiers of rape and torture today and recommended the army be pulled out of Mexico’s nationwide drug war.

What’s a little rape and torture? After all, isn’t it worth some raping and torture if it means that the Mexican government is able to make it look like they’re making a valiant though unsuccessful effort to make it a little bit harder for Americans to buy Mexican pot?
I mean, it’s just rape and torture. It’s not like they’re killing anybody.

The fourth case already has been widely reported. On the night of June 1, on a deserted highway in the western state of Sinaloa, soldiers opened fire on a pickup truck packed with people, killing two women and three children.

OK, but they’re not killing a lot of people. And nobody important. Just women and children…
