The drug wars in Mexico have reached a new level — arming children — with locals saying they have no choice but to defend themselves and teach their children to do the same.
In America, illegal drugs arrive through the postal service, by ordering on the dark web often through connections on social media, illegal pharmaceutical businesses hidden by complex shell companies.

Children are Joining a Self-defense Militia in Mexico
By Natalie Gallón, CNN, January 30, 2020
In a remote, mountainous region of Mexico’s Guerrero state, a group of uniformed young boys lined up on a basketball court.
“Attention! Lift up your weapons now,” their trainer yelled as the kids rushed into position, hands firmly holding onto their rifles.
The littlest ones are training with sticks, faces covered with colored bandanas.
The children, ages 6-12 are training to eventually protect their community against criminal groups, in a lawless terrain where residents say no one is safe.
Guerrero state registered 1,891** intentional homicides in 2019.
It was the deadliest year for Mexico as a whole since records began, with a staggering 35,588** murders, according to the National Public Safety Secretariat.
As the government of Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador struggles to unravel a complex social crisis fed by turf wars between drug cartels, locals in a Guerrero town say they have no choice but to defend themselves — and to teach their children to do the same.
Since 2014, the indigenous town has mustered its own volunteer local police group, known as CRAC-PC (short for Regional Coordination of Community Authorities- Community Police), run by Bernardino Sánchez Luna.
The group is about 200-strong and began recruiting minors about eight months ago. Youth training began in earnest two months ago.
“I don’t want to carry this weapon, I don’t, but the criminals have forced us too. We have to defend our people,” CRAC-PC member Jose told CNN en Español. Fear of the armed group running the region, Los Ardillos, led them to take up arms to protect themselves, he adds.
“The ads for child recruitment in the CRAC’s are a desperate act to get the attention of the Mexican State,” said Mexico’s Network for the Rights of Children (REDIM) after news broke last week of the young recruits.
The only real solution in Guerrero and elsewhere, it said, is for López Obrador’s administration “to articulate a national strategy to stop armed violence.”
Exact location of the children was not disclosed for their safety. Names have been changed to protect identities.
**Mexico’s government counts intentional homicides and femicides in separate categories but both are tallied into the final total recorded murders.

The China Connection: How One D.E.A. Agent
Cracked a Global Fentanyl Ring
By Alex W. Palmer, The New York Times Magazine, Oct. 24, 2019
This post is a long one with the global shipping of Chinese-made pharmaceuticals, and Hong Kong shell company information below tucked in the middle.
. . . the Postal Service suddenly became perhaps the largest drug-transportation network in the world, delivering fentanyl from China straight to American homes.
Catching an illicit shipment in transit was nearly impossible.
According to a 2018 report by the United States Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, Chinese parcel volume increased to 20.6 billion units in 2015 from 1.2 billion in 2007.
The United States Postal Service’s international parcel volume increased to nearly 500 million packages in 2017 — far more than FedEx, U.P.S. and DHL combined — from about 150 million in 2013. More than half of those arrived at just one facility in New York.
In the face of that torrential flow, the odds of catching a few hundred grams of powder tucked in an envelope were minuscule.
“We went from looking for a needle in a haystack to looking for a bacteria colony on a needle in a haystack,” Pardo told me. “If you can move 10 grams from China, and it’s profitable, it’s almost impossible to stop.”
Please help infuse clean energy — pearlescent or silver
into the container shipping and air/ground postal services,
also into social media, where dark connections are made,
and the shell companies in Hong Kong, shadowy deals.
“. . . the bizarre shadow world of Hong Kong shell companies and the secretarial firms enlisted to conceal them.
“Until March 2018, secretarial firms were totally unregulated. They didn’t have to comply with laws combating money laundering or the financing of terrorism.
“Creating a corporate entity in Hong Kong could be done in a day from anywhere in the world, and hiring a ‘corporate secretary’ was as simple as searching online and sending in a few anonymous forms. It is a volume business; companies appear and disappear all the time.”
“467,000 drug overdose deaths in the US counted so far this decade, with another 67,000 more that will likely be added to that staggering total. . . The epidemic has overtaken both car crashes and gun violence as leading causes of deaths nationwide, and it now causes far more deaths every year than AIDS did at its peak. US drug overdose deaths in this decade exceed the number of battle deaths the country suffered in World War I and World War II combined.”
