    As the cartels expand up and out from the Southwest border, they are sending waves of men like Pineda, many of them trained in Mexico, to run their U.S. operations. In the last few years, they have established a prosperous retail industry, with cartels staking out "market territories," lining up smuggling routes, and renting storage bins and drug houses.

    Twice deported after less serious convictions, Pineda looked more like a successful businessman than a drug dealer. He drove a Ford Explorer and wore a shiny watch with red and white jewels.

    "He didn't dress like a construction worker," lead FBI Agent Michael E. Stansbury said. "He was clean and well-groomed. No dirt under his fingernails."

    The look of prosperity corresponded with a booming business. Earlier this month, FBI Director Robert S. Mueller told Congress that upwards of $39 billion a year in drug profits from north of the border is making it back to Mexico and the cartels.

    Why bother to graduate school when these guys are the real role model for all those Mexican kids in the US. "School is for gringos. We will make them all slaves with our drugs!"

    The inevitable outcome of a stupid policy like the WAR on Drugs is that only CRIMINALS and the CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM does well as a result.

    Naturally those nations which supply drugs, and the criminal elements that control that trade are growing stronger as a result of this foolish policy.

    I do not doubt for a minute that the Mexican and SA drug cartels are setting up shop in the USA.

    They've been doing it for at least the last 40 years.

    Criminal cartels are OFTEN race or ethnically based.

    The fact that we're seeing MEXICAN drug organizations infiltrating our cities ought to surprise nobody.

    WE fund those criminal enterprises with our stupid laws.

    Reap what you sow, Americans.
