Mexico’s Descent in the Inferno
By Prof. James Petras
Global Research, May 19, 2011


In May 2011, Mexican investigators uncovered another mass clandestine grave with dozens of mutilated corpses; bringing the total number of victims to 40,000 killed since 2006 when the Calderon regime announced its “war on drug traffickers”. Backed by advisers, agents and arms, the White House has been the principal promotor of a ‘war’ that has totally decimated Mexico ’s society and economy.

If Washington has been the driving force for the regime’s war, Wall Street banks have been the main instruments ensuring the profits of the drug cartels. Every major US bank has been deeply involved in la

  • American people are like Mushrooms - kept in the dark and fed a load of shit. Of course drugs are part of the global economy, $400 billion plus to be precise.

    • @dorbie Yep. This idiotic article makes you want to believe that cartels and drug gangs wouldn't be killing each other if it was not for the US.... perhaps they will sing Kumbaya and hold hands... LMFAO

      Drug killing counts for more deaths by the guns of fellow drug cartels than it does at the guns of Mexican or US soldiers.

    • @dorbie Are you sure???
      Same complaints coming from Afghanistan now. Since the war began poppy harvest and planting have been said to have increased 3 times postwar numbers. Rumors have it tied to American investors. Game of supply and demand. IMO legalize drugs and those using will anyway. The game of smuggeling and murder will go away.

      What you suggested did not work in Holland. You honestly think organised crime will just give up. Its not just drugs, its power, prostitution, people trafficking, gun running, extortion, protection rackets etc. All of these dark industries produce murder and associated crime.

    • @GradySizematters That will not help, I guarantee you that. Organized crime will always exist, the same with vice and other ills of society. Do you really think that legalizing all drugs will be the panacea to this problem? I can tell you from first hand experience, that the biggest growing drug problem in America is medicated prescriptions. Then another example: We all know tobbaco is legal, right? Did you know that cigarette smuggling is another growing problem in this country; terrorist grou More..

  • I used to snort cocain back in the 80s and one day I realized I was partly responsible for the deaths that go with the traffic so it helped me quit. It was not the only reason I quit but it helped me quit. I wish more people would quit too. No demand = no market = no traffic = no deaths.

  • What could I say ...

    Well, drugs are present within human society from the time when the first societies even formed, so we just have to assume that it won't go away (easily). The conclusion is, it would be better to legalize (all) drugs.

    As, for article ... Bah, drug business is an economic fat-cat, though illegal, so there is no government or organisation in the world which hasn't had its fingers in the honey @ some period of time.

  • This article is the latest version of "Look What You Made Me Do". Intellectual Rubbish! How about all the college prof liberals quit doing drugs? No Demand, No Supply. OR maybe legalize drugs and that will make the Mexican Cartelista murders legal too?

    As to the Cartelista Wars, I say, Bomb the Winners.

  • Mexico is a example of place where Christians kill Christians.

    Sad how this "religion of peace" that is the christniasm can lead to so many deaths.

      Explain and give me more details.

      Why these guys are not christians ??
      Whith a few search on google we can find that even the criminal drug dealers need to create tatoos with a christian cross and they have a prey fo god/jesus on the moments of danger!

    • @Anthrax BR Look, bad people put the cross on and say they are Christians! If you don't follow the scripture then how can you live the life? That goes for ALL! If you are the last one out of the bar, and first one in the pew at church, does that make you a good Christian? I think not!! Live the life, or don't claim you are something you can't handle, right? Fake Christians are everywhere.

      Nice post. I agree with this.

      And I ask for you to remember and use these same words when someone come and judge all the muslims as the same thing here on LL.

      Frequently we see some racists/xenophobics/etc of LL celebrating combats people in the ME talking that is a muslim VS muslim that both need to het kiled.


      I dont care with religion, Im agnostic with a Christian family, but I respect all the religious people.

    • @Anthrax BR I understand your sarcasism. My question is, there are so many "muslims" that sit silent on the road in life, why don't they hunt their own down since such a small small portion has hijacked their religion? Sunni vs Shiate? Kurds vs. Sunni? Its happening in portins of the ME. I see more violent words from the small portion, we need a million man march against violent jiahd, and we nedd HAMAS, ISlamic Jihad, the PLO to drop the ugly anti Jewish rhetoric. There is no way pea More..

    • @kingrastaOne of the saddest things imo is that poor people from Guatemala, Honduras etc. get hied by these gangs because that is the only work they can find.
      Another very sad and revolting thing is that Mexicans twice elected a more populist candidate but twice the US helped subvert the election as it know so well how to do it and got their man elected instead.
      I remember how the dispute lasted for quite some time, the losing candidate refusing to concede defeat and claiming fraud, then it died More..
