Insiders accuse the U.S. government of promoting the problem.

A drug report by the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime reveals the United States has a major meth problem. Part of it could be the product of an alleged unholy alliance between the U.S. government and the Sinaloa Cartel.

A record $207 million seized in 2007, the world's largest drug cash seizure in history. The seizure was part of an anti-meth operation. It's also a very tiny fraction of the multi-billion dollar industry --enough to make the innocent think governments are doing something to fight, rather than aid the problem.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Worldwide seizures of methamphetamine grew by 73 percent. From 51 tons in 2010 to 88 tons in 2011. All of the seizures were reported by the U.S. and Mexico according to the report.

The report also states:

The highest methamphetamine seizures were reported by Mexico, where seizures more than doubled, from 13 tons to 31 tons [i.e. the most in the world], and surpassed for the first time those of the United States which seized 23 tons in 2011, up from 15 tons in 2010.

Most methamphetamine laboratories continue to be reported by the United States, where their numbers quadrupled from 2,754 in 2010 to 11,116 in 2011.

This shouldn't be a surprise. In 2007, Mexican authorities made the largest-ever drug cash seizure in history. At the home of a cartel supplier of meth-precursor chemicals, they seized $207 million in cash.

Meth is cheap and easy to produce, and Americans love it. It provides a long-lasting high giving users more bang for their buck than most other drugs. It also erodes teeth and gums, speeds aging, promotes excessive weight loss, and within as little as one use, causes addiction and alters cognitive ability.

Meth addicts have lead a spike in crime in the United States, many burglarizing homes to obtain the cash to buy more of the cheap, addictive drug.

The drug is addictive, dangerous, and deadly, and it remains cheap as the Mexican cartels pump industrial quantities into the United States, made to about 90 percent purity in massive chemical laboratories along the Pacific coast.

It's a $5 billion per year industry.

Much of these deadly imports are delivered by the Sinaloa cartel, which allegedly has ties with the U.S. government.

The city of Chicago is especially wracked by the Sinaloa cartel, where its kingpin, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman has allegedly employed over 100,000 gang members to push meth across the city. Guzman is one of the world's wealthiest men.

According to court documents, at least one high-ranking Sinaloa officer held by the U.S. says Guzman is a key informant to the government. Another source within the Mexican government corroborated this claim, telling the U.S. security firm, Stratfor, that Guzman is working with the U.S. authorities to ship drugs into the states.

The relationship, is ostensibly intended to help limit destabilizing drug cartel violence in Mexico. In reality, the cartel is providing information to the U.S. which is being used by U.S. and Mexican authorities to squelch rival cartels.

Operation Fast and Furious was part of this operation, and was intended to help arm the cartel.

The problem we face is that the United States government is allegedly complicit in some of the most violent and serious criminal behavior that goes on in both Mexico and the United States. In another time, under leadership loyal to the country itself, individuals associated with such activity would be tried for treason.

Unfortunately, the there are no more patriots left in the United States government where each officer is loyal to himself and to perpetuating his tenure.
