USBP Today, Part 4
The largest and highest value exports of Afghanistan
remain -- opium and heroin.
The highest value exports of Mexico are
cocaine, and heroin.
Mexico's heroin comes from Afghanistan and the
heroin is provided to the Mexican drug cartels by the growing
forces of the Taliban and the ever growing al Qaeda. Yes, the
massive drug cartels of Mexico have now teamed with al Qaeda.
But it gets worse.
The Mexican drug cartels have also branched out
into smuggling more than just drugs into the USA. They -- the
drug cartels and al Qaeda remnants -- are now the single
largest smuggler of illegal aliens into the US
This makes perfect sense. The cartels already
have the smugglers, and the routes, and the vehicles. Also, the
profit is immense. With cocaine smuggling you actually have to
grow the product and process it, and then find a sales channel
to sell it. With illegal aliens, they grow themselves, you just
ship them across the border and they are self motivated to disappear
into the blue clouds of car exhaust found in most major American
The Mexican drug cartels are quite patriotic.
They love their country. Their country is Mexico.
The problem for the United States Border Patrol
is getting worse, fast. The risks for their agents are mounting.
Not only are their vehicles being machine gunned by AK-47 fire,
and even fire bombed with Molotov cocktails, but Border Patrol
agents and even US National Guard troops are being overrun in
the dark of night by Mexican troops guarding drug loads. Click
