How much is really being held up?

(We're working on the recap... not that any of you psychotics really care. It's pretty clear the lot of you voted to FUCK US in the general by voting for retards. Seriously, re-electing CradDICK D's? Oh, hell... you deserve the 'leadership' you get)

Think the war on drugs is not only essential but going well? You're wrong...

That large number of arrests must also mean they're mainly catching "little fish" with little tangible effect on overall drug supplies. Most of the bigger fish captured, with one or two high-profile exceptions, have come from the Gulf Cartel, which has led me to wonder if the overall strategy of the Mexican government might not be to pick a side in the cartel wars instead of to stop all illegal drugs. The quickest way to reduce violence in Mexico, which after all stems mainly from competition among rival illegal businesses - would be for the government to enforce an informal monopoly for one side or the other, probably the Sinaloa drug syndicate. By comparison, the Sysiphian task of halting all illegal drugs likely cannot be accomplished any time soon, even if it's what the US might prefer.
