A Narco History: How the United States and Mexico Jointly by Mike Wallace, Carmen Boullosa

By Mike Wallace, Carmen Boullosa

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

But this diverts recognition from the U.S. position in growing and maintaining the carnage. It’s not only that americans 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 substances within the early 1900s, it has careworn Mexico into appearing as its border enforcer—with more and more lethal outcomes.

Mexico used to be now not a helpless sufferer. strong forces in the nation profited highly from delivering americans with what their govt forbade them. however the guidelines that spawned the drug conflict have proved disastrous for either countries.

Written by way of award-winning authors, one American and the opposite Mexican, A Narco heritage stories the interlocking twentieth-century histories that produced this twenty-first century calamity, and proposes easy methods to finish it.
