To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.

Apr 24 2009  U.S. troops may fight drug war in Mexico
We knew this was coming but it's still jarring to see and it is the dead wrong approach to combating Mexico's drug problems.
The Pentagon and Homeland Security Department are developing contingency plans to send National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexican border under a $350 million initiative that would expand the U.S. military's role in the war on drugs
Joy Olson, executive director of the Washington Office on Latin America, which promotes democracy and human rights in the region, said the request lacks the accountability provisions...."They may say that this is for the National Guard, but the way it's written it is really a blank check for the Defense Department to do whatever it wants on counter-drug issues at the border -- and it doesn't say which side of the border"
