U.S. / MEXICAN BORDER and THE DRUG WAR

Radical agenda? Trying to insure everyone is insured with health care; if that is radical,,,, then we should have jumped for joy when Bush invaded Iraq. We REALLY needed to teach Saddam a lesson.(NOT) More like, forget about Osama B L and his being so pissed at the U.S. for encroaching upon his Poppy trade, and tried to hit "US" (the U.S.) in our pocket book, to show he has bigger ballz then the Bush boys. (911) besides there were many lucrative contracts to be made in Iraq, too many mountains to Bomb in Afghanistan. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ wasn't about oil either. Illegal drug trade money was at the heart of 911. WAKE UP and SMELL the Opium. Oh and Mexican drug cartels have been saving their gazillions from selling drugs on American streets (American soil) and preparing to wage the war which is getting bigger and bigger as we speak. Does anyone think the drug war is about drugs? NO WAY..,it's profit. Strategy here started in the early 60's and has been covertly manifesting into what we now have at the border of U.S./ Mexico the WAR DECLARED BY RICHARD NIXON -BARBARA BUSH AND WILLIAM BENNETT.... only thing is,,,,,NOW IT IS REAL AND MORE PEOPLE ARE DYING because no one wants to give up the huge PROFITS from illegal drugs. WE SHOULD TAKE IT OUT OF THEIR POCKETS BY LEGALIZING, TAXING, AND COMPLETELY CONTROLLING THE MARKETS NOW IN THE HANDS OF BOTH THE "CIA" AND THE CARTELS. We would be able to afford effective research and alternative treatments for those who have given up their person battle to end or maintain their addictions.
