Taking Options on The Next War
Just because killing Iraqi innocents got the mercs kicked out of that country, don't think the psychopaths in charge of your money will let them look for work like the rest of the unemployed. We have a whole new program set up to take care of the former assassins.
Would you like a vacation in Mexico? Maybe sending your money instead will satisfy you, so speculates the cabal at the White House.
The U.S. and Mexican governments are expected Monday to announce an anti-drug package that will probably involve hiring private U.S. military contractors to train Mexican troops on the use of new technologies and equipment, senior U.S. officials said.
The government's use of private contractors has been highly controversial, especially since a deadly incident involving contractors last month in Iraq.
The counternarcotics plan, estimated at $1.4 billion over two years, is expected to be announced simultaneously by President Bush in Washington and President Felipe Calderón in Mexico City. It will cap seven months of talks carried out in response to spreading drug violence, considered by many the biggest threat to Mexican security.
A senior U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, called the plan "a quantum leap forward, partly because Mexico is willing to take that risk to build a new relationship."
"This is transformational diplomacy at its best, but don't expect miracles," the official said. "If we can do this right with a partner who really wants to change the relationship, then this will have an impact on the future of the relationship."
The plan calls for increasing U.S. anti-drug aid to Mexico, now estimated at $44 million a year, to $1.4 billion over two to three years, said officials speaking on the condition of anonymity.
The assistance is designed to train Mexican law enforcement officials to more effectively take on drug traffickers equipped with advanced weapons, high-tech communications gear, and aircraft.
After their training totally to disrespect such values as life and liberty in Iraq, the mercs should do great work winning friends in Mexico. A long history of corrupt and violent police there will no doubt work out perfectly for their growing taste for power and disdain for the law.
The country's treasure is being used consistently with the cabal's value system, to further alienate law abiding citizens everywhere.
