One Billion in Military Aid to Mexico

This letter was sent to Representative Gabriel Giffords

President Bush is demanding the Congress approve $1 billion to provide military weapons and training for Mexico’s military to better fight the drug cartels. You must toughen up and defy your Democratic leadership and vote against this demand. Enough is enough. We continue to flood many Central and South American countries with armament supposedly to combat drug dealers. Do you recall the Iran-Contra fiasco, the School of America training thugs who killed many poor peasants in San Salvador? The drug problem will never be solved by military might only by providing assistance here in this country to wean users from their addiction. Spend the money here not there.
