President Obama and his useless administration insist that the drug violence in Mexico is not spilling over the border into America.
Don't buy the political BS from Washington, D.C.
In fact, Jack Riley, the special agent in charge of the DEA's field office in Chicago, IL, says that the local street gangs are proxies for the Mexican drug cartels in the battle for turf as reported by Armen Keteyian for CBS News:
Riley says Mexican cartels have a significant influence in Chicago's gang violence problem. "Let's take the gloves off on that," he said. "We know that the majority of the drugs here in Chicago, cartels are responsible for. We know that the majority of the murders are gang related. So it is very clear to see the connection and the role." As it stands now, at least three major Mexican cartels are battling over control of billions of dollars of marijuana, cocaine and -- increasingly -- heroin in this city.

There is no intention or plans to win the WOD.
It wouldn’t surprise me. Im aware that the cartels have a distribution system throughout the US.
Politicians don’t like to solve problems, because then they have to find other reasons to run.
Hussein from Punaho’s Choom Gang struck a, “no busts for rival cartel intel” with the Sinaloa Cartel. Hussein also gave them boat-loads of F&F weapons.
I’d wager all the Chicago busts are for non-Sinaloa druggies...
Obama admin: Extension of the Sinaloa Cartel and Goldman Sachs...
Many of the illegal guns in Chicago are probably supplied by the Mexican drug gangs as well.
Racist blaming the brown people.
Chicago is a sanctuary city where the poor and huddled masses can escape from persecution in Mexico to pursue their hopes and dreams through commerce.
Our our government.
America is only get a small taste of the smorgabord that is heading north from our Latino bretheren down south!!
Which are worth billions only because of the War On Drugs. Thanks, Drug Warriors, for enriching Mexican cartels!
Nobody is denying that the drugs are coming up from Mexico but the reason for the spike in violence is a gang war.
The countries largest gang is the Chicago Gangster Disciples and all the leadership is dead, retired or in jail. There are now some 600 factions of that gang looking to gain control. Not to mention other gangs looking to fill the void. There is no one in charge of the criminals in Chicago.
A gang war financed by drug-war-inflated drug profits.
A Puerto Rican guy I worked with a few years ago told me that in Chicago they had “a lot of bad Mexicans”.
Wouldn’t surprise me, they seem to have a lot of bad people of all types in Chi-town. Especially inncluding COMMUNISTS.
If the history of the last 50 years shows nothing else, it is that the so-called WOD is unwinnable, a worse morass than Vietnam (which was winnable).
