Bloody Hands

With the deaths of an innocent mother and child in Peru, the U.S. is 
re-examining its drug interdiction policies.

Unfortunately, these are not the first innocent people to die, nor will 
they be the last as the war on drugs continues without any end in sight. 
The U.S. continues to use the same policies in this war that have been 
unsuccessful for more than 30 years. This war is supported by most of those 
in Congress. Our U.S. senators from Texas are staunch supporters of these 
war policies. We can only hope that they will tire of washing the blood of 
innocent victims from their hands and leave office or show enough courage 
to try something new.
