Just in time for Día de los Muertos comes a macabre story from south of the border that reminds us what occurs when somebody makes a take care of the satan. It’s official: Mexico is now a wholly owned subsidiary of the drug cartels.
This could not come as a complete shock to the Biden administration, which wants to grasp that its relationship with Mexico has to alter. The brand new realization as to simply how embedded the cartels are with Mexico’s establishments represents a formidable challenge for President Biden. He wants to grasp that People can now not belief Mexican officers to rein within the cartels, if we ever may.
People have come to count on that, regardless of which political social gathering in Mexico controls the presidency, there may be prone to be a comfy relationship with drug traffickers. The present president of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, actually describes his strategy to the narcos as “hugs not bullets.” That’s a transparent giveaway.
