I’ve been fascinated by the drug war in Mexico for several years now, and I’m certain I’ll be writing a novel on it at some point. (Some type of American intervention-type novel.)
For a couple of years, I’ve been studying the issue and compiling research, and as part of that effort, I came across this great article today from Wired Magazine.
It talks about the five major ways our country assists Mexico, and with the recent shooting of the CIA operatives, it’s clear we’re going to get further drawn into this war going on to our south.
Here’s the article, which is well worth your read: How the U.S. Fights the Zeta Cartel, From Spies to Sanctions.
