US Training Mexican Narco-Troops Escalates in Step with Mexico’s Murder Rate

Boots-On-The-Ground Instruction Carried Out by US Military in Mexico City, Campeche and Chiapas — Home of the Zapatistas

US training of Mexican military forces spiked in fiscal years 2010 and 2011, coinciding with a sharp rise in drug-war homicides in Mexico, an analysis of records made public under the Foreign Assistance Act show.

The training in those two years, funded by the US Department of Defense, and to a lesser extent by the US Department of State, covered a wide range of military skill sets and involved hundreds of training programs offered in the US to Mexican forces as well as dozens (at least 60) provided inside Mexico.

For example, in Mexico City during that two-year period, the US military provided to Mexican security forces training in, among other tactics, “asymmetrical conflict,” “anti-terrorism,” and “open-source intelligence” gathering. US military training also was provided in other parts of Mexico, including the state of Campeche, where infantry, marksmanship and intelligence programs were offered to Mexican troops; and in Chiapas, in fiscal 2011, infantry training was provided to Mexican Marines over two-week periods in April and September. …

Ya gotta love the bankster’s spinmeisters.  Asymmetrical conflict is of course a euphemism for attacking poorly armed civilians on their home turf.  For their own good, you see.  They must be killed or enslaved because they might not like being killed or enslaved.  Rational and humane alternatives to the drug lords’ financial empire must be wiped out before they threaten its operation.  This is the modern mission of the US military, to overthrow not just the constitution and bill of rights, but 1000 years of human progress and understanding.

Keeping soldiers under a constant program of traumatization and regimentation keeps their minds from functioning at a high enough level to see the immorality of their orders.  When they return home to their own increasingly devastated communities they may come to understand what it’s like to be on the receiving end of such “humanitarian” operations.
