While on a state visit to Mexico this week, Barack Obama placed the blame on Mexico’s woes directly at the American people, as reported by Cybercast News Network.
Speaking before an audience in Mexico City, Obama commented on the American link to both illegal drugs and illegal weapons in the Mexican nation, telling those assembled:
We understand that the root cause of violence that’s been happening here in Mexico for which so many Mexicans have suffered is the demand for illegal drugs in the United States.
We also recognize that most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States.
What Obama Failed to Mention…
The Commander-in-Chief cited the American demand for drugs as a contributing factor to Mexico’s violence, but elected not to cite that billions of dollars worth of illegal drugs flow through Switzerland, yet the Swiss manage to maintain a essentially corruption free government, unlike the Mexicans.
In regards to American-manufactured firearms being the primary instrument of violence, most of the guns in Canada are American-made, yet drug cartels haven’t essentially replaced the civil government in large sections within the Dominion of Canada, as is the case with Mexico.
As predicted by many conservative pundits, Obama failed to mention the “Fast & Furious” investigation, in which almost 2,000 firearms were given by the Obama Administration to Mexican drug lords. While the weapons were supposed to be tracked, the Obama Justice Department failed to do so. The blunder is widely believed to have lead to the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, as well as those of untold hundreds of innocent Mexicans caught in the crossfire, among them Mexican beauty queen Maria Gamez.
