Same old problem

I have a very good grasp of the history, PS quit using WIKI's. Interesting approach you have chosen to take with this, everything is wrong other than the thing that is wrong.......and having no culpability.......


Are you responding to me or someone else? My memory is the only resource I used, no Wiki anything (what an odd comment you make), though I did go and check some facts afterward (not using Wiki) only to be reinforced. You also made rather odd comment about Asians that had nothing to do with Guerrero or our current problems. You appear to want to explain the present situation via some obscure dubious history while I take a more socio-cultural approach from the perspective of someone who has lived this thing up close and personal. Cartels grew here just like the mafia did in the USA during Prohibition and for the exact same reason, only they've had longer to prosper here because the Prohibition is still in effect. No Chinese planted any poppies in Guerrero, and this is pretty much the opium capital of America. Before the DEA placed the cocaine trade in the hands of Mexican cartels, narco-related violence was another beast entirely. When it was just the pot trade being fought over things were handled much more discretely. None of the violence is good, but the factors that caused the situation we have now I believe I have explained correctly.

Your other comment doesn't appear to have anything to do with anything I stated (or maybe I need more coffee to get it). ;-)
