So, I hear Mexico is having a civil war right now. They aren’t using the words “civil” or “war”, but when people who live in a country start attacking other people that are in the same country, it sure as hell sounds like a civil war to me. From the Washington Post:
The attacks against journalists, which run from threats hissed on their cellphones to grenades lobbed into their newsrooms, form a new front in the larger war the drug cartels are waging against Mexico’s social and government institutions. The resulting damage is undermining Mexican civil society as the rich, powerful cartels compete for control of smuggling routes into the United States, which is consuming all the cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana the cartels can deliver.
So the war of drugs isn’t over yet? Really? Then why do I sleep with this huge break of cocaine under my bed? Oh, right. Its not that type of war. All right, got it.
