Colombia Plan

To the president of Mexico they return to him as boomerang its own declarations of hand lasts against the drug trafficking when it assumed the presidency in 2006. The executive of the United States begins to shuffle a possible cooperation with his neighboring country to do against the fight against the drug trafficking. To speak of cooperation poses the problem like which it is: problem where both countries play a role and have a responsibility. A military solution on the part of the United States or of the international community would cost thousands of million dollars in (more) armament and military training. For that reason president Caldern insists on which cooperation is not equivalent to new Colombia Plan . The part of responsibility of the United States in the subject is exposed by investigations of The New York Times. These relate how arms seized after a shooting took to the investigators until a store of arms in Phoenix, Arizona. To the owner I tend of it is accused to him to sell hundreds of arms to smugglers with the knowledge of which they would finish into the hands of narcotics traffickers.

As far as the drug, into the hands of whom it finishes once it crosses the border? It distributes who it? As well as nobody force to the North American citizens to consume drug, costs to think that the logistic capabilities of the FBI and the DEA does not have reach sufficient to act in territory North American. Without those answers, it would be in doubt the paper of the North American police and the judicial power. For the cooperation that proposes Obama, the United States will also have to reframe their slackness in the sale of arms, something that appears difficult in a country where the facility to buy armament considers a right of the citizens. In addition, the militarization as much of the Latin American States as of the organized crime benefits the main exporter from arms: The United States, Russia, France and Spain, among others. Nevertheless, no of these expositions exempts to Mexico nor to the Latin American countries of its responsibility at the time of facing its own corruption, impunity and weakness of its institutions. Questions that will only be able to eradicate deep educative reforms, institutional and of fight against the poverty so that it does not have to always armor to the same elites of the violence, a fruit of the social injustice.
