The Mexican Naval Infantry made a dark discovery on August 25, 2010, when they found 72 corpses near the US Mexican border. The victims were believed to be migrants from Central and South America, murdered by a drug cartel. This grim incident was the largest single body count since Mexican President Felipe Calderón made his courageous decision to battle the Mexican drug cartels. While the victims lie in the earth south of the US border, the customers for the drug cartels are the unscathed law breakers north of the border: Mexico’s horrible drug war is fueled by unlawful sales of illegal drugs willingly purchased by US consumers.
