Collaterally Damaged Guatemala

US failed war on drugs is killing Guatemala

Guatemala City - Today's headlines about another confrontation between Drug traffickers, DEA and Guatemalan security forces in Zacapa is just a repetition of the ongoing story of the ineffective and dangerous anti drug war implemented by the US in our territory and the region: the Merida Plan, Plan Mexico and Plan Colombia.

Calderon in Mexico has the resources (from the US) money, man power and the equipment to chase the narco gangs out of Mexico. Out to where, nobody asks, never mind, Calderon is considered to be a monumental success in the war on drugs. The same applies to Uribe in Colombia; he also got his resources from the US. (Remember both Colombia and Mexico has a lot of OIL.)

Where are the Narco Gangs re-surfacing? Everywhere where they can operate in a weak country that does not have the same resources as Mexico and Colombia, especially Guatemala, because we are right there across the border.

We are paying the ultimate price for the idiotic, myopic and ill conceived anti drug war strategies designed by the US and implemented in Colombia and Mexico ( We wonder is it about drugs or is it about OIL resources?)

Mexico gets billions to make war on narcos; Colombia gets billions to make war on narcos, result: massive narco migration. That is hailed as a success in the war on Drugs.

Well it is no success for Guatemala and other countries who suffer the consequences. continued...

They don't like our drug war
DWR Pete Guither July 23, 2009

One new thing that we're seeing recently is leaders, former leaders, and press of foreign countries willing to speak out against the U.S. Drug War. Not only are they learning about the failures and destruction of the drug war, but in today's economy, they're losing faith that the U.S. will be able to continue to bribe countries into playing along.

Check out this extraordinary editorial in the Guatemala Times: US failed war on drugs is killing Guatemala. continued...

The Ganjawar only pays perpetuating it. Ending it, like Peace in the various police actions. War only profits while being waged. Zero tolerance is as silly as legalizing to the enforcement paraphernalia sales and service. Nixon Kissinger lumping Hemp into the mix removes Oil and Chemical pesticide competition. Booze competition, Pharmaceuticals, trees, plastic, meat, dairy and the grain to feed them sprayed with chemicals aborting babies that Hemp doesn't require. You are collateral damage the same as Polio victims wrestled to the cold floor with automatic weapons pointed at their heads. Or quadriplegic young men forced into cages for a couple joints. Forfeiture and Confiscations are big around Christmas and retirements.

The power structure of a national police expanding the fascism. Fossil fools are exploited from American Indians and poor West Virginians. Clear cutting rain forest to graze cattle or make paper and wood with less tensile strength than Hemp. No worries with prohibition. A trillion dollars spent since the Marihuana Tax Ax of 1937. Is a trillion dollars taxed and spent by parties with vested ignorance. With a Corporate press programming the messages, no one questions and paychecks keep it that way. Lies are the roots of the Ganjawar. No good fruit can ever come of it. Just lots of money. The war no one wants to win or lose just keep it going. Prevention and Cures don't profit. Treatment pays. Treating problems even if you have to invent them. Grow Hemp, process it into textiles and wood products and clothing and Omega 3, 6 and 9. Good Luck.

Guatemala does have oil.

Wherever you find oil companies outside the US, you find illegal drugs.
