RECORD COCAINE SEIZURE - GOOD NEWS OR BAD?
An AP report May 1 states that 27 tons of cocaine were found "buried along the Pacific coast." Question: does finding such a phenomenal buried treasure represent good news or bad news, and for whom? To those who view this report positively, one might ask: Is there any reason to believe it will have an impact on US cocaine demand and consumption - or even price? And/or could it be that this "record seizure" merely is testimony to the utter failure of America's decades-long war on production and export of Colombian cocaine - a war that has cost hundreds of billions of US taxpayer dollars?
