Absolutely Horrible Toll from Battle Among Drug Cartels in Mexico

On Dec. 22 USA Today had an article detailing the absolutely horrible toll taken by the battle amnong drug csartels in Mexico - a battle that is entirely a function of the demand for illicit drugs here in America. Nine beheadings over this past weekend, 1,530 murders in the border town of Ciudad Juarez since January, elementary school attendance down to one or two students per class ... the toll is almost beyond comprehension. What is perhaps most disheartening, however, for Mexicans and Americans alike, is that the US drug Czar wrote an OP ED piece published by the Wall Street Journal barely two weeks earlier, on Dec. 5, with the headline: “Our drug policy is a success.” It certainly is high time for a change!
