Barbarization and Narcocultura

An interesting essay from Small Wars Journal. Mexican drug cartels are openly attacking Mexico's social institutions as well as its state apparatus just as the Colombian drug cartels did in the 80's and 90's.  Simply amazing. America has an essentially open border with a failed state who is engaged in a losing war with several drug cartels while  militarily and diplomatically protecting the territorial integrity of western Europe, Israel, Japan, Korea, Afghanistan, and Iraq (amongst others) and using borrowed money to do it too.
