The Drug War Virus

This failed strategy is premised on the notion that drug trafficking organizations (DTOs) are tightly structured hierarchical organizations that can be neutralized by force along a front line — the border.

But, of course, it doesn’t work that way.

Like the Swine flu, the real enemy in the drug war is a virus spread by human contact, and its infection rate is not inhibited by the border or nationality.

Great article from Bill Conroy and Narco News about the infectious power of drug money along our border and in Central and South America.
