The War on Drugs has Failed…

…and the war on terror will too. Fantastic Guardian article that really lays out the situation in Mexico, although it overstresses the uniqueness of the Zeta Cartel. Most of their original leaders have now been killed off, and the group itself is fragmenting. Where the article really hits the nail on the head is the seemless linkage between the state and the underworld in the global economy, and also how hard it is to end guerrilla wars once they start in the 21st century.
