As the war against (or between) the drug "lords" crosses onto American soil...where are OUR troops??? They are in another country fighting for other people!!
I know many people would disagree with me but, here is MY humble opinion...we should leave a set amount of troops over in the Middle East to teach those adults (who wish to learn) to use a weopon & to defend themselves.
Then we should bring the majority of our troops home to defend OUR country!!
As someone who dealt with domestic violence, I personally know that eventually I had to get a back bone & stand up & defend myself. If the civilians in the Middle East would learn to stop taking the abuse & to stand up for themselves then they would be proud of themselves & see that they are NOT victims but survivors.
I have great empathy for their horrible situation but what will happen when our citizens become "expendable assets"? Who will be here to protect us???

My personal opinion is that the drug war has totally been lost. There are more drugs available today, stronger than ever before, at lower cost, than ever before. Why not do what Holland did? Legalize everything, tax it and standardize it; make it safe.

Then add drug treatment centers.. Prohibition did not work.. It fueled gangs, created more violence and filled up prisons. Guess what? The drug war did the same thing.. We have the highest rate of people in prison of any civilized nation on Earth..

In California, we used to spend 5% on prisons and 15% on education.. a good mix. Now we spend 15% on prisons and 5% on education.. and getting less every year.

We also spend 50% of our GNP on the military.. it is growing as well.. Add 50% plus 15% on prisons, and you have a VERY violent culture, with everything dedicated to a moralistic unwinnable war.
