U.N. Says War Between Mexican Drug Cartels Benefits U.S.

(Dead link)
(Other reports on Costa’s quote)
(Tom Ramstack, journalist, is a real person, but clearly the Prohibitionists have been on the hunt to censor the Internet. Here are some links showing some other work of his: )

In what has to be one of the most sick and heartless attitudes there is, a top U.N. official, Antonio Maria Costa, executive director of the U.N.'s Office of Drugs and Crime, has this to say about the mass-murder being perpetrated in Mexico due to the Evil Religion of Hate (Drug Prohibition).

“This struggle is a blessing for the United States because the drought of cocaine generates low levels of addiction, high prices and doses that are less pure,”

Ask anyone at LEAP about the "drought" of cocaine in the U.S. Ask someone like Jack Cole — who was an undercover cop fighting the Drug War for decades — about how much of a "drought" of drugs the U.S. finds itself in.

And it is totally sick to wish adulterated anything thing on others. Perhaps he would love to go for a swim in the Gulf of Mexico? [Written during time of BP oil fiasco.]

Now let's take a look at the sentiment of being glad about the deaths of others. In Ezekiel, in two places, it says God does not take pleasure in the deaths of the wicked. I am not saying the deaths in Mexico have been of "the wicked." But here's what's written in Ezekiel 18:23:

Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign LORD. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?

and Ezekiel 33:11:

Say to them, 'As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, O house of Israel?'

Back to the news article:

The U.N.'s World Drug Report 2010 also praised Mexican President Felipe Calderon, saying his effort to combat drug cartels is stamping out corruption that had been wresting control of the country from the government.

A wasted effort until they do the ONLY thing which can wrest control of drugs from the black market: legalize drugs.

The value of the U.S. cocaine market fell to $35 billion in 2008, compared with $144 billion in 1988, according to U.N. statistics.

Yawn. I guess this stuff is interesting to people who think money is the most important metric to measure things by. And it may only be telling of how much cocaine the U.S. govt. is importing then versus now.

The U.N.'s report is being discussed in the Mexican media as further evidence American drug consumption is fueling the Mexican drug war that has killed more than 23,000 people in the past four years.

That may be how the media portray it. But I have a feeling the Mexican people are smarter than that, and they realize the violence is totally due to drug prohibition. End prohibition, end the violence. As many people point out, what liquor or beer cartels battle it out these days? None, because we (re)legalized alcohol.

This week, the Nogales, Ariz., police chief reported that Mexican drug cartels are threatening his officers who seized about $250,000 of marijuana, indicating cartel death threats are moving over the border into the United States.

Yawn, again. People who think the U.S. is somehow untouched by Drug War corruption are deluded! Cartel death threats, I'm sure, have been here for decades! For sure corruption has!

“In these countries, the intense violence generated by drug traffic poses a serious governance problem,” the report said.

The problem is the prohibition of drugs, which causes them to be so profitable.

The big problem is none of these leaders, elected or appointed, seems to recognize which end of the animal is the head and which is the tail. That and they are more concerned about how their clothing of moonbeams looks to their subjects, "screw God, when was the last time anyone saw or heard from him?! Praise of humans is all that matters."

Ok, I think I hear some of the prohibitionists thinking, "you dimwit, he didn't say he was glad about the Mexicans dying. He said he was glad the U.S. had less cocaine." My response is the ends DO NOT justify the means. And most definitely he is tacitly approving of all that death to achieve the unachievable goal of a Drug Free World.

I guess we'll just have to wait until Judgement Day to find out who is right. Hm, what was the example of Jesus? We know how the prohibitionists would have portrayed him, he said it himself! "He is a glutton and drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!"
