Will Grigg, blogger and author of Liberty in Eclipse, discusses Rep. Michael McCaul’s (R-Texas) attempt to include Mexican drug cartels in an expanded war on terrorism; the winners on both sides of prohibition, including the cartels that profit from a huge risk premium and the drug and law enforcement agencies that get increased funding and employment; the Washington Post op-ed chiding Mexico for being too proud to “call in the marines;” and how Texas compensates for budget shortfalls: ramp up “asset forfeitures” near borders, where the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unlawful search and seizure apparently doesn’t apply.

  2. I suspect the CIA may be an agent in inducement of violence in the Mexican drug trade as a pretext for invasion. Lord knows the CIA has it hands deep in the drug trade. The war on drugs is decades old and Mexico has been supplying the ammo for decades and yet only in the past two or three years has the violence exploded. Let a small incident spill over to our side of the Rio Grande and there will arise a cry to summon General “Black Jack” Petraus to invade and annex some of the northern states of Mexico.

  3. END THE WAR ON DRUGS!!! NOW!

  4. The whole "War on ___" process is a complete sham. The only thing a "War on ___" achieves is to line the pockets of the establishment at the expense of the people. It's a template to privatize profits while leaving the risk, expense, and fallout for the public to deal with.

  5. The "war on drugs" is a farce and a travesty. It is destroying Mexico and making millions of Americans into criminals. It is a greater disaster then the "war on alcohol" (prohibition) was.

  6. Will, As a fellow christian you dont know how refreshing it is to hear you on Antiwar. I am surrounded by bloodthirsty warmongering christian zionists in almost every denomination i mix in. I believe we should be at the forefront of the antiwar movement not calling for crusades. God Bless

  7. I have for a long time suspected the drug violence in Mexico may be CIA induced as a pretext for invading Mexico. Lord knows the CIA has its hands deep into the drug trade. The war on drugs is decades old and Mexico has been supplying the ammo for all those decades and yet only within the past three or four years has the violence exploded. Let a small incident spill over to this side of the Rio Grande…we may have to summon General "Black Jack" Petraeus. Hey! Might reduce the illegal immigration problem if the US annexed several of the northern states of Mexico
