    CB, read what I actually post before commenting. I DIDN'T SAY THERE WAS NO COCAINE USE IN THE REST OF THE WORLD. What I did say was that if Americans kicked their addictions, it would cut their business by 70%, a HUGE blow. Keep the CIA from sabatoging their infrastructures and governments, and inforce our immigration laws and we can focus on other problems. This one would be gone for us.

    The United States is the primary destination, but around 25 to 30% of global cocaine production travels from Latin America to Europe, typically via West Africa.

    Africa and to a slighter extent South America weren't even given the information that Europe or the U.S has.
    YOu didn't post a link to the post because that would show that the quote you just posted came from a different post.

    We never did that for Africa and we sure as **** never did that for South America, both countries which WE PURPOSELY ****ed up big time.

    Yeah, that's a good idea.

    Re: Central American leaders blame U.S. for border crisis

    That talks about granting refugee status to kids who are still in Honduras, and not yet in the US. From the article:

    the Obama administration is considering whether to allow hundreds of minors and young adults from Honduras into the United States without making the dangerous trek through Mexico, according to a draft of the proposal.

    If approved, the plan would direct the government to screen thousands of children and youths in Honduras to see if they can enter the United States as refugees or on emergency humanitarian grounds
    Your post claimed that kids who entered the US illegally were going to be granted refugee status, which is obviously untrue. Here's your post again, since you seem to have forgotten what you said

There's gonna be a flood of people coming across the border soon.
    Again, the article you just linked to spoke about giving refugee status to kids who had *not* "made it into the country"

    This would fit right in with the isolationist policies so many seem to favor.

    It would...But my tongue in cheek aside, I am getting burned right up to my finely chiseled ass being told how we are such a problem for the rest of the world while they take our money, and cry for our help when they are in deep, then once we give it we are something they scrape off their shoe. They can all kiss my ass.
