Imperial occupation of Mexico and 2012 elections http://www.tiwy.com/news.phtml?id=203
All the security services of the US are busy with the creation on anti-drug and anti-terror “defense line” in Mexico. They were especially successful during the presidency of G. Bush Jr. when they raised to power the most “manageable” president in the history of the Aztec country: first Vicente Fox and than Felipe Calderon. These politicians, who hid under patriotic statements their affiliation to “neo-liberal internationalism”, have been sticking to the pro-Empire course almost on all main issues of domestic and foreign policy. This led to Mexico’s comedown on the international arena especially in Latin America. One can hear more and more often people talking about the imperial occupation of Mexico as if it is an accomplished fact.
The analogy, which comes to mind, is the US’ occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan simply without bombing and missile attacks. Calderon handed his country to the US by stealth under the pretext of “inevitable expansion of drug cartels and the threat that they can seize power in Mexico”. Militarization of the fight against drug cartels has not given any promising results. The death toll of this “quiet war” reaches tens of thousands of people. Drones the US armed forces are using “to detect channels of drug smuggling from Mexico to the US” are a fearful symbol of the escalation of this war.
