A Narco History: How the United States and Mexico Jointly Created the "Mexican Drug War"


The time period “Mexican Drug warfare” misleads. It signifies that the continuing massacre, which has now killed good over 100,000 humans, is an inner Mexican affair.

But this diverts awareness from the U.S. function in growing and maintaining the carnage. It’s not only that american citizens purchase medicinal drugs from, and promote guns to, Mexico’s murderous cartels. It’s that ever because the U.S. prohibited the use and sale of gear within the early 1900s, it has harassed Mexico into performing as its border enforcer—with more and more lethal consequences.
Mexico used to be now not a helpless sufferer. robust forces in the kingdom profited highly from providing americans with what their govt forbade them. however the regulations that spawned the drug warfare have proved disastrous for either countries.

Written via award-winning authors, one American and the opposite Mexican, A Narco History experiences the interlocking twentieth-century histories that produced this twenty-first century calamity, and proposes how one can finish it.
