Mexican Drug War

‘Mexican’ drug war an outgrowth of drug use in U.S., Canada

As published in the Cape Breton Post: January 9th, 2011

The “Mexican” drug war is often blamed on Mexican law enforcement confusion created by massive organizational changes at the senior levels of their government.
The theory states that overturning established arrangements between the cartels and the previous government has led to power struggles and enhanced violence. The answer, therefore, lies in reforming the Mexican government.

Those who wonder why a "terrorist" organization like Hamas continues to flourish among the Palestinians need look no further than the following quote and its relation to the illegal and provocative Israeli settlements that continue on Palestinian territory.
According to "Michael," a hawkish American settler in the Palestinian West Bank, "any concessions in pursuit of a peace process with the Arabs is unthinkable" (Ottawa Citizen, Pg C7, Jan. 2).

Canadians need to be informed about how the CCCE, formerly the Business Council on National Issues, subverts democracy by going in the back door and cutting Parliament out of the legislative process. The 1983 Competition Act, written by the Business Council on National Issues and passed into law by an order in council of the Mulroney regime, is a good example.

Perhaps people like Thomas D’Aquino, John Manley and Gord Nixon are the real anarchists. While they don’t wear black masks, they definitely mute their visibility.

Bill Clinton, great man of peace and communicator extraordinaire, is coming to Canada on October 29th. You know he has a flair for theatrics. Perhaps the National Arts Centre in Ottawa should stage a performance of Macbeth with Bill as the blood-haunted Danish king. Excessively dramatic you say? Hardly, I say, given his sordid history on the public stage.
