The US “war on drugs” has ravaged most of Central and South America. Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. TYT now has a full audio network! Available where you listen to podcasts. Get more info at https://TYT.com/audio. "MEXICO CITY — It has been a brutal electoral season, even by Mexico’s violent standards. At least 113 candidates, pre-candidates, and current and former politicians have been killed and 300 more have suffered some form of aggression since September, according to Etellekt, a Mexico City–based public policy consultancy. Even the government’s tally — 34, which considers only candidates — pushes this particular death toll to nearly four per month. Astonishing as these numbers are, they only tell part of the story: There are hundreds of candidates who have backed out of their races out of fear for their safety, and many others who have curbed their campaign activities. This poses a significant challenge to Mexico’s relatively young democracy, already crippled by systemic corruption and widespread impunity. “Violence is altering the profile of candidates,” Alejandro Hope, a security analyst, told BuzzFeed News. “Who sticks around? The reckless and those who collude [with criminals].””* Read more here: https://www.buzzfeed.com/karlazabludovsky/113-politicians-killed-this-election-season-in-mexico?utm_term=.emMk967M7#.bh0Q6m5D5 Hosts: Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola Cast: Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

I favor legalization of drugs but the corruption in Mexico is much deeper than just drug based Cartels. Extortion is huge and would only increase if drug market somehow vanished. There are already cartels that make more money smuggling migrants into USA than drugs. Los Zetas for example. Trump is a reaction to years of denial on the issue of immigration and the failed state of Mexico. I dont support him but blaming him for the increased murder rate is insanely stupid. The homicide rate does not follow neatly our political turmoil in USA. It was already increasing before he even ran. Political assassinations follow a pattern of collapse of civil order. The police mainly paid to protect the rich in Mexico. The vigilant gangs that arise to keep peace are soon corrupted by cartels or their own extortion rackets. They become cartels

Thank you Ana for saying that MS 13 is an AMERICAN GANG not a Central American gang. It started in Los Angeles, California which I believe is here in the United States of America? The USA basically invented gangs.

If Donald trump never talked about how Mexico is going to pay for the wall because maybe we can team up with Mexico and arrest gang member and people in the drug cartel. But at the same it is NOT our fault that Mexico is corrupt, It is NOT our fault that people choose to be in gangs, get arrested and get deported for it, and it is NOT our fault that we want to get rid of ALL of the drug violence that is taking place in the USA.

Chenk, living in Washington D.C., CALLS for open borders. I live on the border, we see the shooting, murders, rapes, on the USA SIDE, then they run back to Mexico. We NEED the WALL. We want the wall.
Imitation ThinkTank (3 месяца назад)
Yep cause it's America's fault that Mexico's corrupt politicians don't end the cartels

This is WHY we NEED open borders?? I am Spanish, and live on the border, we all want and need THE WALL. When I park my car, I still have to use the club (steering wheel). In 5 minutes they break in your car and across the border.

What these rich white people in power across America NEVER say out loud is that they and their sons and daughters are the #1 consumers of coke. It's THEIR demand for drugs that empowers the cartels.

Thoranzalar Vhazen (3 месяца назад)
Mexico is a broken country full of crime. That much of what Trump said is true, and it's obvious. But by and large, the people crossing our border are trying to /escape/ this madness. These people live in fear, many knowing they may be murdered on the other side. Instead of building a wall, someday we may honestly need to cross over there and help the country clean itself up. If we could destroy the cartels, any and all threat that Mexico could pose to the United States would be nullified. Mexico isn't sending its criminals to use, their criminals run rampant and OWN the damn country. They have no reason to run and hide here, only their victims are crossing.

Not so different from our government. Substitute drug cartels with big pharma, special interest groups, and our dumbass two party system, and news publicly assassinate anyone who tries to run that’s against the status quoe. Parallels our government. Mexico is just doing it openly and without cover ups.

this would be NOT OUR problem, and why do they blame American for the drug problem? they say it's our drug apatite that creates the demand. well fine, but people wouldn't do it if it wasn't there. that view only defends the drug dealers.....maybe Mexico should get them selves some new national products . and some backbone to fight the cartels with, instead of running away to the states...... we have our own problems , we don't need to import new ones.

The U.S. needs to keep its nose out of other country's problems, a lot of times when they try to "help" they only end up making things worst because they do not fully understand the root of a lot of issues. Something does need to be done and new policies need to be put in place I just don't think it should be the U.S. who does it because they only have their best interest at heart and not Mexico, especially when dealing with the Trump administration.

Because we're so stupid we go over to the middle East at great expense in lives and money to get in the middle of a religious war that's been going on forever when the real terrorist threat is from Mexico through out south America from these evil degenerate goverments and crime organizations, take care of their ass and we wouldn't even need a wall, it's pathetic.....

For you all to know in mexico every party owns one drug cartel, so those kills are nothing more than cartel wars to ensure they keep the government support for their cartels

The thing in Mexico is that. If you dont have the backing of a cartel you have no chance for office. The president himself is president because of a cartels approving. People need to understand the us insain drug addiction is fueling all this.

NO, there are plenty of things the Mexican president can do to stop this, there are many things el PRI the political party in power can do to stop this but they don't bc they don't give a shit about their own citizens

I'm not sure why this does not happen everywhere. Why don't we have politicians, police, judges, etc. being killed or intimidated by criminal organizations. What is it that the U.S. government can do that the Mexican government cannot? I'm genuinely curious about this. Do we have nicer killers???

Sounds like shitholes... Just saying ... But, people there need to stay there, and revolt. It sounds ridiculous, but people from these countries need to defend their countries, I mean, yes countries from around the world can send military support... Things like that but at the end of the day this needs to come from within these countries, no outside intervention is going to last, they''ll just take over the minute others leave. As harsh as this sounds, Mexicans and Salvadorians need to pick up arms, and clean their own shit up. Establish a durable law enforcement. Every pissed off person that moves out of the country is one person further away from the solution and just makes it easier for politicians and gangs to remain in power. They need to save their countries. International community can send muscle and logistical support but their is no magical solution. Cheers

I was a politician down in Mexico but after a lot of death threats to me and my children we fled to the US. my children my wife and I are American citizens so we didn't have a problem with that, but most people in our situation are not, so they have to walk through the desert to flee for their lives.
Francisco Mendoza (3 месяца назад)
Mexico has been trying to legalize drugs to stop the War on Drugs and to stop the drug cartels, but they haven't had the permission from the USA... now that a lot of people are heading into that direction the drug cartels will kill him or threaten them to stop them from even thinking of legalizing the drugs... thanks American politics, we owe it to you.
