9781432786694: The Drug Invasion of West Africa

"THE DRUG INVASION OF WEST AFRICA" is a gripping account of what happens when drug cartels, corrupt governments and Western ideals collide on the shores of West Africa. It is a brilliant exploration of the role of global institutions and the motives of leaders in addressing global challenges. When Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, a Harvard-educated scion of a Mexican drug cartel takes over from his father in the midst of the government crack-down on the Mexican cartels, he decides to refocus the organization's operations on Europe with West Africa as the transit point. With the survival of his cartel in mind and the Slave Trade as his guide, he moves to recruit local collaborators. Amongst others, he recruits the colourful Chief of Seguria's police force, Kolo Buntey Wawaa, through a former mistress. With their help, he sets up a subsidiary of his cartel under the guise of shipping business. Unknown to him, prompted by the two most decorated intelligence agents in the West, the CIA's Col. Wiecker and the MI5's Sir Boyd, America and Britain are about to launch a GLOBAL WAR ON DRUGS, focused on West Africa. British Prime Minister John Jenkins, looking for his place in history persuades his friend, US President Gordon Clay, who is facing a difficult re-election, to join in launching a Global War on Drugs. To prosecute their war, however, the Anglo-American alliance needs to secure backing from the UN Security Council. At the same time, President Quanda of Seguria, a West African state, who was accused of drug abuse during his campaign, is urging West Africa, to tackle the drug problem. While this stance earns him admiration from Britain and elsewhere, he finds that Africa is divided on the wisdom and benefits of fighting drugs. Some wonder whether fighting drugs should be an African priority at all. As events in cities from Matamoras to Canton move to their dual climaxes in The Hague and Addis Ababa, many lives are caug
