    Our war on drugs gave the cartels the power and wealth they're running from, so yes IMO.

    so I guess in your mind America should take on N. Korea because they deny people their rights, and murder them.

    We do not owe them anything.

    As for the whole "war on drugs" bit making the cartels....you do realize that we do not control the laws in those countries right? Those cartels are murdering people because those countries governments are going after them because those countries made laws against drugs. To blame the US solely because of our personal drug policy is putting the blame in the wrong place.

    I don't see that the US owes foreign residents asylum for the country of origin's complicity in what amounts to criminal enterprise in either nation. Were it state sanctioned, it might be otherwise.

    Blame belongs solely with the United States whose ridiculous drug policy begun by Nixon and Reagan has created the World as we now know it.

    I often wonder what game posters are playing when they use the word "You"
    but hide behind the fact thay they used the "reply" function versus the "reply with quote" .

    The United States controls the drug laws in all countries in this Hemisphere.
    As soon as we legalize, they will legalize .

    Why don't you prove that we don't vote for other countrie's laws, since you finally quoted someone Kal.
    I'm getting tired of your lame "no amnesty" response to everything immigration without any solutions, just strawmen.
    You don't even know what law was passed last year by the Senate that the House won't look at--you've got work to do to get caught up Sir .

    These are the same ugly anti-immigration attitudes led by the KKK in the 1920's.
    The same KKK that is now firmly entrenched in the Republican party.

    The same anti-immigration attitudes against southern Europeans in the late 1800's.
    And yes, it was the same discriminating Republican party then also.

    Not to mention how these Republicans treate Native Americans in the 2nd half of the 19th Century .

    how is this possible, since congress is the one who makes all laws, ..including drug enforcement.

    from 1954 to 1994 the democrats controlled the congress, ...except for 6 yrs, the republicans controlled the senate 81 to 86.

    those laws you state would have to have been made by democrats.
