Mexican drug cartels expand to Africa
The Mexican drug cartels have established themselves in western Africa to send drugs to Europe and Russia. The lieutenants cohabitate with terrorists in bars and brothels and have changed the use of the dollar to the euro, obtaining greater income, making them more powerful and turning them into a threat to those countries and the U.S.
High-ranking representatives from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and their European counterparts spoke of the expansion of the Mexican and Colombian cartels in Africa and the risk of their increasing relations with Islamist groups. There are Mexican and Colombian narco cartels establishing their presence in western Africa because they need logistical support from African organized crime to send tons of Mexican and Colombian cocaine to Europe, Russia and other places.
The reason for the increase in narco traffic of cocaine from Mexico and Latin America to western Africa is the increase in demand in many parts of Europe. It is projected that the Mexican and Latin American cartels will ship between 400 and 500 tons of cocaine to Europe this year.
