Violence In Cd. Juarez
  • Cd. Juarez, Chihuahua: Population close to 2 million
    • The largest city in the state of Chihuahua
    • ..and the 5th largest city in all of Mexico
  • In 1995 it wasn’t easy to buy

cocaine in Cd. Juarez, because the cartels

kept a lid on it.

  • Now the city has up to 100,000 addicts according to local clinics.
  • 50% of the kids you call High School kids, neither go to school nor have jobs.
  • 40% of young males in Chihuahua want to become “Sicarios” [Professional Killers]
  • We’ve created something so bleak that crime and murder is actually, a rational way to live.

Violence In Cd. Juarez
  • U.S. has provided Mexico with millions of dollars to halt the trafficking of narcotics from trespassing our borders
    • The Pentagons massive request of $1.4 Billion
    • The Aid Package will consist of $40 million this year
  • But all of this has amounted to little more than nothing and a very bleak distant future.
  • Every drug is more available in this country, than it was 40yrs ago
    • Higher quality
    • Cheaper
  • Mexican Govt. is deceitful in the information it reveals
  • “One of the lies Michelle Obama is told is that 90% of the dead people are drug people or dirty”
  • 2nd thing she is told is that we’re wining the war on drugs

  • Publications done in regards to the current events
    • In the book “The Cartel” Author Charles Bowden Declares
    • “The escalation of the drug war in Cd. Juarez

is an exact replica of the events that transpired

in Colombia in the City of Medellin in the 80’s”

    • Which indicates the progression of the violence which will inevitably require some form of martial law

      • National Services
      • A.F.I.
      • Army
      • Mexican Government

  • This solution while farfetched has proven to be the most viable in the past.
  • Homeland security is optimistic but warns not to expect a “V-Day for the war on drugs” in the next 5 yrs.
  • U.S. Government manages techniques better
  • The Merida Initiative: U.S.-Mexico Countered Drug Cooperation
  • This is why this will work unlike everything else that has been attempted.

What were seeing is a slaughterhouse and its escalating.

In the manner that Pablo Escobar’s reign came to an end…

we cant help to think that if Mexico would allow the U.S. a more active role…

it might lead to a more promising outcome.

Charles Bowden States:

…Given the drug wars cross border nature, any long term strategy must include the U.S.

As the old adage goes

“desperate times, calls for desperate measures”
