    Obama, will legalize, or decriminalize any drug that might come from Colombia, as the war on drugs is our raison de etre for a continued military presence in that country. Colombia is the springboard from which the US will launch our attacks against Venezuela, Bolivia...any South American nation that claims ownership of our oil when the time comes. And the time will come. There will be a manufactured incident. Too bad our government cannot admit the failure of our war on drugs and spend that money on alternative energy development and addiction treatment for those who want it. Then there is also the matter of the drug economy...huge amounts of unaccounted for cash. We are not trying to eradicate drugs, merely own their economy to finance projects that even American law, the American Congress and Senate would find objectionable, as was done with Iran/Contra. And all those drugs do help to keep the poor and working classes down.

    I thought I heard a boy cry, "Wolf!"
