Mexico's Drug Cartel War: United States' Role

Uploaded by :

4 pages in length. The role America plays in Mexico's ongoing drug cartel war is in direct relation to the extent this unsavory activity "spills across the border into the United States" (Brennan, 2008), which it frequently does. As America continues its own war against drugs, many believe it is nothing more than an exercise in futility if Mexico as continuously slips in the majority of illegal drugs across a virtually unmonitored border. Without United States participation in the effort to control Mexico's cartel war, America only stands to reap the consequences of its own ongoing drug abuse problem. Bibliography lists 3 sources.
