Mexican government murders children

Ten students on their way to receive government scholarships were killed by gunmen at a checkpoint in the state of Durango, Mexico. The dead included three girls, ages 8, 11 and 13; the rest were teens except for the eldest, who was 21. Four of the dead were siblings.

Parts of Durango have fallen under the sway of drug-running gunmen called the Zetas, who are battling for control of market and distribution routes. Interior Minister Fernando Gomez Mont, said the kids were "cowardly murdered" by criminal gangs.

How right he is, but the real criminal gang is the one he himself belongs to.

The senseless anti-drug policies of America and Mexico rages onward leading to more deaths and more suffering, all curtsey of the government. The fact is that it is the laws that create the problems, not the mafia.

If the Mexican government (and any other on this planet) really wanted people to be safe, really wanted less dying from overdoses and gang wars, they would legalize all drugs. If they did, we would see; in an instance, that the vast majority of all income to criminal organization would disappear, people that really want drugs could suddenly buy them at supermarkets, cheaper, cleaner and much healthier. All the crimes being committed each day in the hunt for money and drugs would vanish almost completely. Terrorist groups everywhere would lose most of their income and the world would be a safer, better and freer place.

This is very simple folks, it has been tried thousands of times by virtually every government throughout history, and it has always, without exception, failed. Do you know what Einstein called the very essence of insanity? He said that insanity is: “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”.

The Americans tried to outlaw drinking, it gave birth to the Mafia and, of course, people drank like they never did before or since. Even the communists in the Soviet Union tried it under the rule of that funny man Stalin, they failed miserably. If a totalitarian regime with close to total control of the populace with the threat of getting shot or moved to Gulag couldn’t stop people from taking drugs, why the hell does anyone think it ever can be done?

It can’t.

They will always fail because of two very simple facts.

Fact 1:
People want to take drugs. It can be alcohol, cocaine or smelling a pair of old socks, but people will do it. Always have, and always will. No matter the religion, no matter the regime or the penalty. And if some drug becomes hard to get to, for whatever reason, they just move on to the next.

Fact 2:

The more ruthless the punishment, the higher the risk becomes - and so the higher the profits and gains. And if the police get one or two thugs of the street, it only means that the profits grow for the ones left hence an open invitation for new competitors that will try to get some of that money. Close down one drug-factory and two others emerge. If the government successfully shut down one gang, there will be another one, or two.

Do you know why they still try it and why the propaganda machine with the spin-doctors still sells us this con? Because of control and power. The government gets a purpose, to fight crime. They get an incentive to take taxes to pay for this scheme. And you, the people, are scared, and where do you turn? To the very people that created the mess in the first place, the biggest criminals, the elected frauds of your government.

Since the Mexican government stepped up their useless and unwinnable war close to 20,000 people have died. Journalists and the government blame the drug lords and their underlings, but as said, the blood of those people lay on the hands of the Mexican authorities.

Either legalize all drugs and let people make their own choices or many thousands more will die. And we all know what path the insane will take so get used to these kinds of reports, they will never stop coming as long as the government is allowed to continue.


  1. Of course it makes sense - and the government probably knows it. But Congressman Ron Paul believes the CIA makes too much money from drug running for drugs ever to become legal.

    I wonder if the drug gangs know that they're competing for business with the CIA.

  2. Well, the drug trade in Afghanistan has never flurish like today. I think that says it all...
