Mexican drug raid wins drug war!

In 2007, Mexican and US drug agents raided a home in Mexico City. Over $200,000,000 in cash was found. Lot's of other stuff, too. Like tigers and gold guns!
It's pretty impressive. I put the pictures in a PDF file.

It's not recent, but I just got an email with the pictures from a student. Unlike a lot of forwarded email sent around, this one is true.

Amazing how, in hindsight, this one raid really changed the tide in the war on drugs. I will be the first to admit that I was wrong. I mean, since this raid in 2007, drug barons have finally gotten the message that drugs simply do not pay.

Rule of law has returned to Mexico and police there can now wear their uniform with safety and pride. The economy has improved and fewer illegal immigrants are forced by drug-war violence to come to the US.

Hell, even in the US drug supply has been so squeezed that every measurable indicator shows that drug use has plummeted.

Best of all, the Cubs won the World Series last year!

Did I almost mention that the bulldogs all have rubber teeth and the hens lay soft-boiled eggs?
There's a lake of stew and of whiskey too
You can paddle all around 'em in a big canoe.
I'll see you all this coming fall in the Big Rock Candy Mountains.
