US increases military presence in Costa Rica
Just when you were looking into the expat thing!
For the "drug war," of course. Makes me think it might make sense to add two words to danps's maximally head-exploding platform:
1. Medicare for All
2. End the wars
3. Soak the rich
4. Legalize it.
Having an entire warmaking apparatus to combat substances for which, in the worst case scenarios of those who justify the war, the demand is inelastic is a nice racket, but it hasn't stopped the drugs, and is creating failed states from Tucson southward. Has appeal to the youth, too.
