Many people think that genocide means the complete extermination of a race or people. The Genocide Convention, however, adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on December 9, 1948, defines genocide as not only “killing members of the group,” but also, “causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group.” Hence, from the results we've seen--only the tip of the iceberg--it can be ascertained that the "War on Drugs" is an international effort to destroy what the global power elites deem as "undesirable" elements. If the poor person--usually of color--is not murdered, he's sent to prison on possession charges, therefore, ruined...his ability to make a living from that point on rendered practically impossible.
The American War on Drugs, as well as the Mexican War on Drugs, and all other wars-on-drugs have been waged almost exclusively in poor communities of color--according to the justice department, white people are 5 times more likely to be found with drugs but black are 10 times more likely to go to jail-- even though people of all colors and economic status use and sell illegal drugs. Rather than eradicating drugs, the narco-economy has grown so powerful that human lives are often considered the price of doing business.
Nevertheless, we're led to believe that the evils that haunt the oppressed in America, and everywhere else, are the fault of the oppressed. Nothing can be further from the truth. If you dig deep enough--beyond the commercial media--you will find hard evidence that shows the governments of the U.S. and Europe, through various agencies, like that of intelligence agencies, no doubt, provide direct and indirect support for the drug cartels, not to mention other oppressive mechanisms (prison industrial complex).
But the government(s) certainly put on a good show in an effort to act as if they're not part of this huge criminal enterprise. For instance, today, the US is supposedly outraged over the release, "from prison of Mexican drug lord Rafael Caro Quintero and vowed to continue efforts to bring to justice the man who ordered the killing of a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agent." However, the US government’s complicity in Caro Quintero’s narco-trafficking business, and, even in the Camarena’s gruesome murder, is ignored.
In 1985, Mexico’s intelligence service, the Federal Security Directorate, or DFS in its Spanish initials and the CIA were not only working in unison according to Charles Bowden who wrote the book, Down by the River: Drugs, Money, Murder, and Family , but were in league with Mexico’s narco-traffickers. The DFS was disbanded in 1985, and integrated into Mexico’s version of the CIA, called CISEN (Spanish initials). CISEN still works in unison with US agencies and officials, including the CIA.
“Camarena brushes off Jordan’s alarm by noting that DFS is trained by the CIA and is functionally a unit in their mysterious work. And he says they are also functionally “the eyes and ears of the cartels.”See 1991 letter from Gary Hart to U.S. Sen. John Kerry.
“In March of 1983, Plumlee contacted my Denver Senate Office and met with Mr. Bill Holen of my Senate Staff. During the initial meeting, Mr. Plumlee raised certain allegations concerning U.S. foreign and military policy toward Nicaragua and the use of covert activities by U.S. Intelligence agencies.More recently, just last year HSBC Bank was caught red-handed laundering billions of dollars for multiple Mexican drug cartels. What happened? Eric Holder declined to prosecute. In fact, HSBC was let off the hook entirely until someone in the media caught wind of the story. In the end, HSBC settled for what amounted to a minor fine. Wachovia Bank, now Wells Fargo, is another recent example of an institution caught red handed laundering untold millions of drug profits. Once again, the tip of the iceberg because most of these illustrious institutions do not get caught.
… Mr. Plumlee also stated that Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala and El Salvador were providing U.S. military personnel access to secret landing field and various staging areas scattered throughout Central America.
He specifically cited the Mexican government’s direct knowledge of illegal arms shipments and narcotic smuggling activities that were taking place out of a civilian ranch in the Veracruz area which were under the control and sponsorship of Rafael Caro-Quintero and the Luis Jorge Ochoa branch of the Medellin Escobar Cartel.
… Mr. Plumlee raised several issues including that covert U.S. intelligence agencies were directly involved in the smuggling and distribution of drugs to raise funds for covert military operations against the government of Nicaragua. …
“Wachovia’s blatant disregard for our banking laws gave international cocaine cartels a virtual carte blanche to finance their operations,” as tens of thousands of Mexicans were killed in an exponentially violent drug war.In a nutshell, no jail time for these organized criminals at the top of the food chain who brought down the world economy, only, secret bailouts, which Wells Fargo received, $159 Billion, in 2010, revealed when the Fed was partially audited and that was one of the smaller bailouts. If that doesn't tell you whose side the government's on, nothing will.

Ex-Border Patrol Agents Warn: Politicians Helping Cartels in U.S.
“Transnational criminal enterprises have annually invested millions of dollars to create and staff international drug and human smuggling networks inside the United States; thus it is no surprise that they continue to accelerate their efforts to get trusted representatives in place as a means to guarantee continued success,” the Border Patrol agents wrote.
