But, to be fair to HSBC…

Global banks are the financial services wing of the drug cartels
As HSBC executives apologise to the US Senate for laundering drugs money, the fact is that nothing changes

Ahmed Wali Karzai was assassinated in July 2011.

Reading back some of the entries here, interesting stories.

I know from talking to Mexicans that the cartel operations in Mexico are really destabilising to the country. Sort of makes one question how stable a country is, and how open to manipulation/control by determined parties it might be through a mixture of bribery, economic muscle, and physical threat.

(edit: not talking about Mexico in particular, but nation states… I know Mexico is a troubled country in ways, but it’s impressive in others and I’ve liked the Mexicans I’ve met; I think the same vulnerability exists in most nations, there are many concrete examples (not only in Latin America))
