Another Drugwar Christmas
Source: DrugSense
Tuesday, as Americans and Ralph Nader awaited the last alligator shoe to drop from the roof of the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C. on Vice-president Al Gore's presidential campaign, DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) commandos and trainees swooped down on suspected drug couriers in southern Colombia and Chicago's Union Station.In Chicago, three people were shot and one killed. Hundreds were put at risk. In Colombia, there's no telling how many will be shot or killed. 
But hundreds or thousands are likely to die in Plan Colombia. The DEA mission and shootout justification? Making Chicago's train station and the world safe from illicit drugs. Only "bad guys" were shot in Chicago, drugwar protagonists and antagonists. However, Chicagoans, suited for work and holiday shopping, who approve or tolerate American-sponsored antidrug raids on peasants, farmers and entrepreneurs of Colombia deserve a little taste of the daily terror inflicted by America's drugwar upon Chicago minorities and the people of the world.Santa, all I want for Christmas is peace from drug-war for all.
