The Narco War. Some myths and realities.
I want to thank you for all your comments. Thank you for reading me. Well, the issues of this article are going to be: one what is happening in México with all of those news about narco guerrilla? and two a reflexion about whether drugs should be legalized or not.
In the beginning of the government of presidente Calderon starts a low intensity war versus the most important dealers of drugs. These dealers had built a big network of complicity and corruption, so they could make their criminal activities with authorization of locals and municipality government. The big mistake of the narco war initiative was not existed the infrastructure, police corps and logistic to win the war in overwhelming.
Although in many places of the Mexican republic there is a violence climate, in Mexico City do not. It's true in place like Guadalajara or Monterrey you could find dismember bodies or hanged people in the bridges or lampposts, inclusive this kind of executions in public in labour hours. Some touristic ports or beaches just like Acapulco or Cancun have seen perverted their easy daily life due to fronts between cartels and police.
Before the war started, the illegal migration of Mexican and Centro American people was of plenty of people crossing the Bravo River but today the panorama is so different. Many of the narco pits or narco fosses have been found contained bodies of Centro American and Chinese people. In more than one way the narco war has brought some benefices for the States. Many people here think Mexico has put the dead and the Americans the weapons.
So recently information about monkey business within FBI like the Fast and Furious operation and many other hidden operations has made think of Mexican population in the drugs legalization, after all North American society has been so relaxed with clinics or hostel where you can buy marihuana with any problem. In the other hand Narco is an economical activity that raises billions of dollars and employs near of 600,000 workers all along the levels.
It is so sad to me see how devastated are places as Michoacan or Morelos, touristic centres in other time. But is not to bad at all the most of Mexican people works hard for carry on and get ahead their families. I recommend you if you decided travel to México visit public places like museums or market places they are secure. Mexico City has a lot of places to see and is the most secure city in Mexican Republic.
I invite you to give me your impressions of Mexico from what you see or hear in your News Shows or what you read in your newspapers.
PD. In the next articles I'm gonna give you some recommendations of what places to visit and a review of the Chapultepec's Castle and the Archeological Museum and of course, I am preparing an article about typical dish: The original and Mexican "TACOS" Good luck and see you soon.
