Markets, Murder and Trash: The Real New World Order Emerges in Juarez

The author loses me at "murderous drug trade." The link between "illegal drugs" and violence isn't the word "drug." The link is "illegal." Trying to stop the cartels without legalizing drugs is the equivalent of putting a band-aid on a mortal wound; mopping up blood while nations bleed. Our government, our so-called "leaders", have the power, right now, to STOP the violence in Mexico. They won't do it, because it's America's collective, insane fear of "drugs" and "drug dealers" that maintains the status quo.
