    The Truth Hurts ( Mr. Webb)

    R.I.P. ++ Mr. Webb ++ the cross you had to carry for telling the truth was heavy. As it is for any who wishs to and then actually does share it. All in a world that loves lies more than the truth and darkness rather than the light. This book was very well and exhaustivley researched. Few in Middle America know that there was a direct corelation between this and the progression of youth violence that we see today. We know all to well though in California the wars this Coke sparked among youthful factions which started the prolification of guns as a new norm in America that we see today, everywhere. 'A threat to justice anywhere is is a threat to justice everywhere.' ++MLK++ (I wonder if Oliver North and the gang new this and what it would result in.) Well, based upon the King families victory in their wrongful death suit of these same agancies I would say, probably not. You can read about the fall out of all this Coke and guns on our youth in these books below in detail. They explain the who, what, when and where about the progession of youth violence in America starting in trend seting California.

    There will be no real war on drugs until we have a war on the Politicians!

    I just finshed this book, and nothing that I read surprises me. I recently heard a former Customs Agent on a radio show talking about similar issues regarding what a joke the war on drugs is. I read her book also, and find it very disturbing the relationship between our unsecure borders and the drug industry. After reading these two books, I'm sure the Terrorist will have no problems infiltrating our country via our insecure borders. Our politicians had better wake up and smell the explosion!

    Great Story!

    This is a great book. Scary, but good! I always knew that the CIA was intertwined in the illegal narcotics industry. This doesn't surprise me at all.
