Of particular interest to me out off all of the readings regarding Operation Cocair III was the comments from the former military leader of the United States regarding how the EU did not listen to him 10 years ago when he told them that this problem would arise. It seems a little obvious that with globalization of all things of course drug use sub-cultures and the source of the illicit drugs would spread too. Cocaine use is undoubtedly not new to Europe, however, in order for the prevention of its increase and prevention of the drug’s increased trade route creation to be effective it needs to be early and often. It is incredibly upsetting and unfortunate that the weaker government nations in Africa are used and it would take a huge effort with little evidence to prevent the ingraining of underhand dealings in the countries, however, if a repeat of this issue is to be avoided international organizations need to spend more time listening to those who have experienced the problem and less ignoring them. The issue of drug trafficking is of course not a simple one and in fact is one of the most complex issues surrounding globalization and political and economic players that exists. The end of this trafficking is not going to stem solely from a couple arrests and seizures of product, but rather an additional effort of identifying and taking down those officials higher up who are corrupted and allow for it to continue. Still it is not going to be easy or cheap to take this route and break the bonds between cartels and their European market.
