Yet Another Reason to Stay Out of Mexico…
As if you needed more!
In case nobody has noticed this little tidbit of information floating through the news, Northern Mexico is pretty much falling apart. It isn’t the economic downturn that is threating life as we know it elsewhere, but rather it is because business is too good for the drug industry that Mexico is flying apart at the seams.
Last year, there were over 1500 murders in the city of Juarez alone. In the above story, a drug cartel murdered the chief of police and five officers in a smaller town, causing all of the officers on payroll to pack up and leave town. So Jaurez is in an uproar and Villa Ahumada has been abandoned to the Mexican Army and the drug cartels. What does this have to do with America?
Great question. Where do you think the drugs are coming from that American teenagers are getting wasted on? Answer? Latin American drug Cartels, Middle Eastern farms and Asian warlords. So guess what? That money that the kid down the street is using to get a dimebag is getting funnelled to support Terrorism, Civil Wars and Communists. As melodramatic as that sounds, I kind of wonder what would happen if we showed high school students where their drugs were actually coming from. For the sake of getting high and “having fun”, American teenagers are funding one of the deadliest drug wars in history south of the border.
It’s also a great thing to pray about just before ducking into the Justice Institute…
