    It seems no one in Argentina is interested in fighting this plague. Crime and consumption grow each day, a sad reality of the current administration, decline in a healthy society :( poor youth and children!

    Why don't you publish the number of seizures of narcotics, which the police of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela carry out in their unending struggle against this scourge?

    I think the actions taken are very good, and given this, all I see is one smoke screen. Because in the end, the seized merchandise always goes to one place; but not all of it.

    Put an end to drug trafficking keeping in mind that there are lots of destroyed families. Iron fist. HOW LONG WILL IT BE?

    GOD willing each man becomes aware that he is hurting children and teenagers and to humanity itself

    They don’t want it to end, there must be a reason. The North Americans during World War II beat the Germans and the Japanese and how is it that now they can’t beat the narcos. I don’t believe it’s harder than Vietnam and now Argentina finds itself invaded by the narcos. We need to bring out our ARMY that fought the English, and I know we’ll win.

    The seizures and disclosure are commendable, but prohibiting use would be even better. How can drug trafficking be put to an end if it is legalized? May God protect our teen sons and daughters from these darn drug traffickers.

    I THINK IT’S VERY GOOD THAT THEY TAKE DRUGS OFF THE STREETS IN ARGENTINA. THE SAME THING GOES ON ESPECIALLY AROUND THE BORDER AREAS. I THINK THE GOVERNMENTS NEED TO BE HARSH. OTHERWISE, THIS WILL NEVER COME TO AN END…

  9. Colombianos 04/13/2014

    To know that all those seizures by the United States in the so-called war against drugs is nothing other than a business. They don’t destroy the drugs, rather they store it in big warehouses to bring it out in time and manipulate supply and demand…Such corruption. When do you see U.S. drug lords sentenced to jail? However, with our leaders’ permission, they put our compatriots in jail, just to maintain their prison system. I hope the truth is known someday.

    BRAVO FOR THE CONFISCATION. I CONGRATULATE ALL THE BRAVE MEN OF THE MILITARY, POLICE AND INTELLIGENCE FORCES OF THE WORLD FOR FIGHTING TO PUT AN END TO THE CANCER THAT IS DRUGS, WHICH IS RUINING OUR SOCIETY. KEEP IT UP AND MAY GOD HOLD AND PROTECT YOU ALWAYS IN EACH OF YOUR OPERATIONS. I KNOW YOU ARE BETTER THAN THAT WHOLE GANG OF CRIMINALS. GLORY TO THE HEROES OF THE WORLD LIKE YOU.

    These reports are very important. That's why our governing leaders should pay more attention.

  12. OSCAR ALFREDO 02/17/2014

    It is too bad that it isn’t just passing through my country anymore; it has come to stay endorsed by our corrupt officials. No doubt the government is an accomplice – society has no protection from this scourge.

    Unfortunately, drug traffickers are on the rise in Mexico. This is thanks to the complicity between organized crime and the authorities. Thank you for the information.

  14. Adal Amaya 01/31/2014

    No doubt drug trafficking is powerful and they have an excellent international network, and if countries don’t unite to fight this endemic evil together, it is very difficult for an isolated country to do anything. THANK YOU FOR THIS INFORMATION.

  15. Otoniel de Souza Baracho 12/12/2013

    A good initiative! The good will win!

  16. jaime posada 12/01/2013

    And can it be true that the United States destroys drugs, when it´s such a good deal

  17. arturo moscoso 11/20/2013

    This is an important initiative, since we can rely on world-wide information regarding the drug problem. I congratulate the institution and the technical team for their brilliant work, which in other circumstances we would have to look for in the press. Thank you for your cooperation.

    I CONGRATULATE THE 14 COUNTRIES, FOR THEIR EXTRAORDINARY EFFORTS TO ERADICATE DRUGS, BECAUSE DRUGS ARE THE WORST SCOURGE ON HUMANITY, I LOSE EVERYTHING EVEN CONSCIOUSNESS, AND THEY END UP LIKE VEGETABLES. HOW MANY FATHERS, MOTHERS, SIBLINGS, AUNTS, UNCLES, GRANDPARENTS END UP DEVASTATED WATCHING A DRUG ADDICTED FAMILY MEMBER SUFFER. IT IS VERY SAD. EVERYTHING THAT CAN BE DONE, TO HELP OTHERS, WE ALL SHOULD DO.

  19. David Gaitán Victoria 11/05/2013

    The best way to fight against drug trafficking is to work on legalizing drugs. In exchange, what should be enhanced is not the wasteful military effort, which ends up getting corrupted, but rather a great effort of prevention and education throughout the whole region and world. Because the fight against drugs paradoxically ends up being a perfect pretext for those who “fight” against this scourge to end up becoming multibillion millionaires. The “control posts” end up being attractive, man’s ambition has no limits… It isn’t just a matter of fighting drugs, it’s also a matter of fighting ambition.

    The dictionary says: “He who kills, steals, burns, kidnaps, etc. Is called a BANDIT. That is how the poorly named guerrilla will be called. They deserve no other name.

  21. roberto donato 09/12/2013

    let's get rid of this drug that breaks up a lot of families

    • carlos 04/26/2014

      Children, don’t be so naïve. The first question is: do you know of any joint action taken by countries that produce, pass-through countries and countries with drug users? Within this trio, the U.S. is in up to its nose as are the European countries, because they are the black hole where the chain ends. Anything else is just drama.

  22. dario 09/08/2013

    It is truly very appropriate to dedicate a space to collaborate in the fight against drug trafficking

  23. Manuel Dommar Gago 09/05/2013

    Quite complete, given the variety of subjects.
