  1. The conflict between the CDS and CDJ will continue until both sides run out of money or one sides wins decisively. Unfortunately that's not going to happen anytime soon. You get complicity from govt. officials in assisting both sides due to the large bribes that are given to them. There is just to much money to be made. The same goes for the U.S.A. side of the issues. I don't recall ever hearing of the capos of U.S.A. getting, let alone who they are. Moreover, the money keeps coming north and south - through gun sales, money laundering, and through domestic drug sales. Not all the money goes south. Hell on American businessman con ripped off .$400milusd from Osiel Cardenas Guillen according to a comment some reader made.
