War on Drugs: Terror Kingpins Condemn “Terrorist Organizations”

“On March 8, US Senators Roger Marshall (R-KS) and Rick Scott (F-FL) announced proposed legislation to designate Mexican drug cartels as ‘terrorist organizations.’ … [W]e don’t very often see aspirin or beer distributors gunning their rivals down on the street. When customers can walk into a variety of stores to buy what they want (in known quantity, quality, and strength), and when trade disputes can be settled with lawyers rather than with guns, everyone’s a lot safer. Marshall and Scott don’t want you to be safer. They want you, and those who sell you the things you want, to live in terror of their disapproval. They are, in a word, terrorists. Oddly enough, they’re also both veteran drug dealers themselves — Marshall as a prescription-writing obstetrician, and Scott as a ‘healthcare executive’ who parlayed a fortune made facilitating Medicare fraud into a career in politics.” (03/09/23)
