"The first casualty of war is individuality, as the
lives, liberty, and property of each of us is
consumed in a mindless frenzy of destruction and death."

Lest We Forget
I have spent the last year or more tearing into Eric Holder and the folk (correct form, check it out) at the American DOJ for their part in exacerbating the Drug Wars in Mexico with Operation Fast and Furious. However, as was brought recently to my attention by a radio interview with the producer of New Juarez, it was the Mexican Government that killed Juarez in the late War to Control the Juarez Corridor. Apparently the troops and Federal Police sent to control the cartels chose to augment their meagre (from their point of view) pay with extortion, graft and robbery and felt entitled to kidnap, rob rape, and murder women on payday.
A comment on the relative merits of some illnesses and their cures. Also a reminder that there are many in power in the USA that would be happy to turn our police forces loose on us to do the same. even going so far as to fire or kill the majority of relatively honest cops who would not sink this low.
Was that worth reading?
