This represents the vast amount of wealth cartels control

Through my research I have found an alarm number of confirmations regarding how much control the drug cartels of the world really have. The first and possibly most alarming piece of data I came across was a New York Times article talking about how three high ranking military generals were just detained for corruption. This is extremely alarming because it shows how much control the criminal organizations truly have over their domains. Not only are these cartels able to sway their police, (who work on a more local level) but the military whose whole purpose is to protect the entire country. This new paired with another article which discusses the fact that the war on cartel weapons stocks is pointless shows that there is nothing any government can do to stop this growing, violent, powerhouse.
