Compare And Contrast ISIS To The KKK, Gangs, The Mexican Cartel, Or The Mafia.
October 7, 2014
How many innocent people have to die? “After the bombings on ISIS from the USA, they have beheaded two American journalists as a direct result of the bombings. They claim they were “acting as a direct result of your transgression towards us!” ISIS has also vowed: “WE WILL NOT STOP UNTIL WE QUENCH OUR THIRST FOR YOUR BLOOD.”, Says hub pages articles. The Islamic terrorist group and the Mexican Cartel are similar in some ways, even though they might be from different countries or states, they still have several similarities, such as, both of these groups; kill, and want money. When people think about some of the similarities that the Mexican Cartel and ISIS have in common, you probably think; blood, death, terror, and war. It is well known that the drug trade in Mexico represents one of the biggest industries in that country, accounting for as much as $991 million dollars per year. If- as some have estimated (Chabat as cited by Ánderson 2007) - drug trafficking is one of the ten most important industries of the country, a serious analysis should be undertaken before dismembering it. “Sinaloa is and has always been a state where the money comes from drug traffic. Where else can it come from? The fishing and agricultural industries are broken. We cannot even get money from the mineral industry because people do not want to work there anymore. Drug smugglers pay miners ten times more just to take care of drugs (...).What are we going to do if there is no other place to get money?” says the writer of an article, Viridiana Rios, from Harvard university. Both groups are menacing, but the ISIS group is far more dangerous, because they are way more violent, and have a direct goal to meet. The Islamic terrorist group ISIS has more difference than they do similarities. The Mexican Cartel assassinates people for their money, and drugs. ISIS assassinates people, just because they do not get what they want, as in, they do not get people to believe in what they do, and they do not get the power that they want. These drug armies have spread their dastardly trade throughout Mexico and into many other countries in Latin America (Mexican Cartel). Isis, on the other hand, still keeps on spreading across Iraq and Syria. This terrorist group lead by a former Bin Laden confidant, said to be working with Yemeni bomb-makers to target U.S. aviation. The Mexican Cartel, however, is led by Hector Beltran Leyva, the leader of the Arturo Beltran Leyva drug cartel. ISIS started off back in 2013, out of a garage of a college dropout known as, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. The group ISIS wants to restore caliphate. Caliphate is an Islamic state under the rule of a community of religious scholars guided by a supreme leader, the caliph or khalifah, which is generally taken to mean the successor to the Prophet Muhammad. ISIS wants; territory, money, power, followers, and revenge toward the United States, because ISIS came about from the aftermath of the U.S. going over to Iraq and their leader, himself was a U.S. captive and was imprisoned for several years. What may come to mind, when you think of the two groups are; assassinations of innocent people and children, hostages, and the torture that these people might be going through, without them knowing what is really going on. This world really cannot stand having either one of these groups. Fifty-seven countries have already united to stop this terrorist group called ISIS. The states included are; Russia, Iraq, and the United States. CNN reporters say,” the United Stated is doing what it must take to ”take the fight to terrorists,”” leading a coalition of Arab nations in a series of airstrikes against the so-called Islamic State of terror group in Syria, U.S. President Barak Obama said Tuesday. The United States really does not want...

MexicanCartels and their Abuse of Young Girls
Violence has become such a problem in Mexico as it is related to drug cartels. The Mexican government announced that they would nearly double the size of its federal police force, to reduce the military involvement (“Mexican Government Softness Drug War”). That takes care of the movement of drug cartels. The drug violence has escalated to the point that young kids and young girls cannot be out in their neighborhoods playing or hanging out with friends due to the intimidation and fear. It is simply not safe anymore. Mexicancartels are kidnapping young teen girls to get money by making them smuggle in drugs and work out in the streets and then sadly, get killed after they have been used.
In Mexico there are several and very powerful cartels that are dedicated to do these illegal operations. Cartels have modified their operations to include kidnapping girls, assassination, extortion, and intimidation to establish them and fight against the Mexican government. But these cartels have no love for anyone, only for themselves and their money. They are treating young teenage girls with no respect and no sort of compassion what so ever. They are being used, abused, beaten and killed.
The Mexican drug cartels have...
...Mexican Drug Cartels; Can They Ever Be Stopped
“The drug cartels are lucrative, they are violent, and they are operated with stunning planning and precision.” -Attorney General Eric Holder
The Mexicancartels have been able to slide under the radar for quite some time now and are finally beginning to get the attention they deserve. But is this too late? Have they already done too much damage to their country and their people where emerging out of this horrific phase is even possible? This could be the case if no immediate action is taken. In order for this two happen two things must occur. The first is an immediate solution to the reoccurring violence and corruption within and outside of the Mexican borders. The second is a long-term solution must be made therefore preventing any sort of international dominance like this to happen again. Some solutions that need to be made in the immediate future are an increase in border security and heightened sense of awareness for smugglers not only from Mexico but into it as well, a stricter regulation on the selling of United States firearms, and. In terms of for the long run, there must be a greater relationship between the United States and Mexico not only toward the security issues but also toward the political ones. The Mexican government must implement reform in places like education, training of officers, and...
...War on Drugs: MexicanCartels
As Americans in the United States face the war on drugs, we struggle to get a grip on the killer of a nation. It seems as if illegal narcotics are killing and destroying families at an alarming rate. Since the early eighties, children have dropped out of school to make a profit from this dream killer. Many parents were either addicted to these illegal drugs, or in denial of their corruption. In many legal cases you hear the convicted say, “We don’t have poppy fields in North America,” which leads our government to do critical speculation. Where do these drugs come from? How are they entering our states and destroying families? These are the questions that many have. Upon research, it has become clear that the MexicanCartels are the main and biggest contributors to the narcotic empire. Pushing illegal drugs from Mexico through the border of Lerado, Mexico and Lerado, Texas has been the success of these cartels in distributing drugs into the United States. Government officials face the horror of senseless deaths as the fight for War on Drugs begins.
Mexico has been known for its outrageous reputations within the Drug Cartels that is rapidly distributing illegal narcotics into the United States. Drug wars have been at an all- time high in 2011 since it started in 2007. The two most infamous cartels are the Zetas...
...A widely propagated myth would have us believe that Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman Loera and his Sinaloa Federation are less violent than many of their competitors. Statements from journalists and analysts allege that Sinaloa is more businesslike than Los Zetas, whose reputation for brutality is well-documented, and that this business savvy somehow renders the group relatively benign. In turn, this has led many to believe that the Mexican government could broker a deal with the leader of one of Mexico's largest criminal organizations.
However, a close examination of Sinaloa's evolution demonstrates the group is hardly the hallmark of civility. In fact, the history of Mexico's cartel wars over the past decade reveals that Guzman, his Sinaloa Federation and the various cartels with which they partner have been more territorially aggressive than any other Mexicancartel.
Expansion and Escalation
Sinaloa incursions upset the balance of power that Miguel Angel “El Padrino” Felix Gallardo established in the late 1980s when he appropriated criminal territories to Guzman and his other lieutenants. Tens of thousands of people have died from the wars that arose from this imbalance.
This is because Guzman's expansion efforts necessarily entailed encroaching on a rival's turf. In the early 1990s, he sent forces from Sinaloa state into Tijuana, Baja California state -- controlled at the...
...at high risk of getting kidnapped or murdered by any cartel affiliated member. Of course, the violence between and within the various cartel organizations receives much of the spotlight and therefore frightens the public. Truth is, the majority of the Mexicancartels are not out hunting to harm tourists or even the locals; their primary focus is the economics and well-being of their drug business. Even though Mexicancartels are depicted as being violent and prone to crimes, their cartel behavior indicates the “business-like” purposes behind what they do. However, people generalize all cartels according to the Zetas ruthless acts of violence, one of the most dangerous cartels in Mexico. Unlike the Zetas, the Sinaloa Federation which consists of the loosely-knotted alliance between the Sinaloa Cartel and Juarez Cartel, is business-orientated and has become the most powerful cartel group Mexico has ever seen.
For many decades now, Mexico has been suffering from an on-going drug war that continues to plague the country. The “majority of drug production comes from the western states of Sinaloa, Durango and Chihuahua” which allows the Sinaloa Federation to reign over this territory and dominate the drug trafficking business. The Federation is a group of individual cartels that work together in...
...Mexican Drug Cartels
Mexico was once sought a place to go and visit just south of the border. Many American Citizens would go to see the nice beaches, eat some delicious seafood that was surprisingly better priced than it was here in the U.S and just have a mini vacation that was only about a 2 hour drive. However those days are long gone. Ongoing violence has broken out, even Mexican citizens fear for their safety in their own home. That cause of all this you ask; Mexican Drug Cartels. Mexican Drug Cartels have hit the news and have become more than just a group of people dealing drugs, they reached the highest level of crime there is too reach, and they are an Organized Crime organization. Let’s take it back to see how this once tourist filled country became the home to some of the most violent and heartless organizations the world has seen to date.
Crime in Mexico has existed for years now, but it became more noticeable during the time of Pablo Escobar. At one point in history he was the main transporter for Cocaine coming directly from Colombia. As enforcement agencies kicked up their efforts to stop this drug trade, especially in Florida, Escobar formed a partnership with Mexico-based traffickers to transport their drugs through Mexico and into the United States. Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo is known as “The Godfather” of the Cartels seeing how he...
The Islamic State, previously calling itself the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant or the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, and also known by the Arabic acronym Daʿesh''', is an unrecognized state and a Sunni jihadist group active in Iraq and Syria in the Middle East. In its self-proclaimed status as a caliphate, it claims religious authority over all Muslims across the world and aspires to bring most of the Muslim-inhabited regions of the world under its political control beginning with territory in the Levant region which includes Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Cyprus and part of southern Turkey.
The group has been described by the United Nations and Western and Middle Eastern media as a terrorist group and has been designated a foreign terrorist organization by the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Indonesia and Saudi Arabia. The United Nations and Amnesty International have accused the group of grave human rights abuses.
The Islamic State, also widely known as ISIS, ISIL and Daʿesh, originated as Jama'at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad in 1999. This group was the forerunner of Tanzim Qaidat al-Jihad fi Bilad al-Rafidayn—commonly known as al-Qaeda in Iraq —a group
formed by Abu Musab Al Zarqawi in 2004 which took part in the Iraqi insurgency against American-led forces and their Iraqi allies following the 2003 invasion of Iraq. During the 2003–2011 Iraq War, it joined other Sunni insurgent groups to form the...
