I was reading through the news on MSN.com, an article from MSNBC about the problem of the drug cartel in Mexico and how it could become another Iraq. But what about it becoming like the war against the Taliban? The United States is in trouble for sure. We already have violent gangs here. The Hells Angels, the Bloods, the Crips. The Bloods and Crips were part of the same gang until there was an internal war, and some broke off and started the Bloods. The Hells Angels, (the juries still out on with me), was or is a Club, but are known to have dealings with drugs, world wide violence, trafficking in stolen goods, and extortion. It's been said that it might have had some affiliation with the Pissed off Bastards of Bloomington, and the Boozefighters of the late 1940's amd 50's.
So how close to another Iraq are we, well it's hard to tell. Are we going to invade Mexico, are we going to become passive and begin to talk to them and slap them on the hand, as it seems the present regimes seems to want to do with Iran, Afghanistan, China and Russia. Friends there is enough trouble right here in this United States of America to start another American Civil war. Of the 3 gangs mentioned, two are known to have members in OUR military here at home and abroad, the Crips and Bloods. Now that really sounds safe to me, doesn't it you all. ( SAFE - NOT REALLY)
It seems to me that the 3 all started or began in Los Angeles, California and San Fransisco between the 1940's and late 1970's but there's another gang I haven't even mentioned yet, a ruthless more violent gang, whose goal is to become the largest and baddest, top gang in America, MS-13. They also originated in Los Angeles in the 80's and spread to Central America and other parts of America. It is said that in 2005 their membership was around 50,000 and their activities include: Drug smuggling and sales, black market gun sells, human trafficking, auto theft, assaults on Law Enforcement, home invasions and contract killings. They are composed mostly of Salvadorans, Hondurans, Guatemalans, and Nicaraguans. In Los Angeles, they are predominately made up of Mexicans and African-American. Salvadoran authorities report that 60% of prison inmates in for gang related crimes have either fled prosecution or been deported from the United States. Doesn't that make you feel safe as I do, (SAFE - NOT REALLY)
Which bring us to the next QUESTION. Will Mexico become another Iraq? It all depends on how many cartels and war lords there are in Mexico. When you have over 7,000 murders and slayings in one year, (that means that there are MANYYYYY), everything these days is about power money and drugs. With the number of gang members in our military and abroad and all the border guards from Texas, Arizona, and California, how many of them are on the take? How many elected officials in Mexico and America are on the take or who all can be had? The war on Drugs really should have started sooner than it did, and are we really committed to it? How close are we to a Civil War here? Close! The battle in Mexico will be more like fighting the taliban in the mountain regions of Afghanistan, where most of them are held up. If we are going to fight against drugs in Mexico, we need to close up the borders of Florida also where many comes in also. So are we really safe? (SAFE - NOT REALLY)
Friends, once we start this war on the drug cartels and war lords in Mexico and other places, we will be entering into a whole new error in our history. Once we begin to close off the cartel's and drug smuggler's routes into America there will become a civil unrest as we have never seen. There won't be a person alive that will be safe from their wrath. No power - no money, no drugs - no money. Money is the very thing that drives the life of every human being, if you have riches you want to keep those riches and want even more, its just a way of life. If you never had money and come into some money you want to keep it and want more, it also is a way of life. So friends let us keep our eyes open to what is going to transpire in the days and years to come, it's going to get interesting for sure. Are we safe? (NOTTTTT REALLYYYYY)
until the next time jesseb's
Shalom and Peace to Israel
