God is pro-drug war

God is pro-drug war. At least the Mexican Roman-Catholic one: The Conferencia del Episcopado Mexicano (CEM), or Mexican Episcopal Conference, the leadership of the Catholic church in Mexico, strongly backed Calderón's fight against the drug cartels, despite recent criticism by Human Rights Watch and the Washington Office of Latin America on the fallout of the "drug war."

The CEM admitted there had been "some victims," yet minimized the claims of HRW and WOLA that Calderón's decision to send the military head-on against the drug cartels has dramatically increased violence as well as human rights violations.

Calderón's government has as well minimized the reports, to the chagrin of the political opposition.
