Mexican Blackhawks

The US secretary of state has acknowledged that the "insatiable" demand for drugs in the US is driving a surge in gang violence near the border of Mexico. Clinton also admitted some US responsibility for the smuggling of arms by the cartels from the US into Mexico.

Let’s not forget Hillary, the insatiable demand for election campaign funds in the US.

"California, Florida, Texas and New York are, far and away, the states where most illegal drugs enter the United States. California, Florida, Texas and New York are also the states responsible for laundering most of the $200-250 billion dollars of drug money that pass through the U.S. economy and banking system every year...

"Eighty per cent of all Presidential campaign contributions come from California, Florida, Texas and New York."

Clinton said the US would provide $80m to the Mexican government to buy Blackhawk helicopters to combat the cartels.

Hmmm... I wonder what those blackhawks will really be used for?
