MEXICO CITY — Mexico sued several gun makers in a U.S. federal court on Wednesday, accusing them of reckless business practices that supply what it called a “torrent” of illegal arms to violent Mexican drug cartels, leading to thousands of deaths. ...
Interesting turning of tables.
The USA has been bombing Latin America with chemical weapons and assasinating people left and right... because of drugs that have entered the USA from various countries. Rather than suing, the USA bombs and kills.
Mexico is unable to bomb Smith and Wesson, and anyways, this would be the wrong approach for "stopping violence."
Mind you, is bombing villages the right way to deal with the USA's drug problems? Probably not. AMLO probably has the right idea.
Better pickpocket technology, more spying.
