New this week on DRCNet's web site at hhttp://www.drcnet.org/military/ is a scathing piece by Joseph Miranda on the fallacy of a military "victory" in the War on Drugs. Mr. Miranda, who edits Strategy and Tactics magazine, breaks down the mission and gives an interesting and accessible analysis of what such a mission would entail.

If you or anyone you know still believes that further U.S. military engagement in the Drug War would be useful or desirable, we urge you to read this piece. It will forever change the way you view our military's role in drug policy.

ALSO NEW, "Making Sure Drugs Kill". Does a policy designed to make drugs and drug use as dangerous as possible, both to the user and to the community, make sense? Is it rational to believe that we will eliminate drug use, especially among those whose use is problematic, by making the behavior even more problematic? Or would it be wiser to attempt to minimize the harms associated with such use? This section will be expanded considerably as time goes on. As always, your comments and suggestions are sought and appreciated. Online at http://www.stopthedrugwar.org/makingsure/.
