We Got Another Kingpin! (13)

"El Chapo, Most-Wanted Drug Lord, Is Captured in Mexico."

“This is an absolutely huge get."

“Big strike."

“A landmark achievement, and a victory for the citizens of both Mexico and the United States.”

So don't believe the headline, "Drug kingpin’s bust may have no effect." Or the nay-sayers: "It’s bad news for Mazatlán. “He was keeping the peace."

We win! (for the thirteenth time and counting...)

The war is for drugs.
the purpose or outcome of NAFTA was to increase international drug smuggling.
