    Obrador’s dealings are not unknown. His connections to the drug cartels are not completely secret. His is a danger to Mexico, and the other day his statements about Presidente Maduro of Venezuela, were shocking. Obrador claims that Maduro, his ally, is NOT a dictator. partly true, but Venezuela is being run like a dictatoship, with people starving in the streets, and being controlled. like a dictatorship, and living in fear, like a dictatorship. Mexicans are, and should be worried. The military fears an uprising and possibly an assassination.

      The “drug dealing” claim, as far as I can tell, is based on some remarks questioning the Calderón Administration’s “war on drugs” … and specifically, AMLO’s reluctance to simply blame Chapo Guzman for problems in the state of Sinaloa, as presented by “”… a site rated as a “scam” by several monitoring systems. As far as anyone can tell, the site uses a proxy server in Arizona, claims to be Belgian, but probably is written somewhere in the Middle East.

      Not interfering in the internal politics of other nations was SOP for Mexican diplomacy for most of the last 150 years, so I didn’t find anything “outrageous” about what appears to be a flawed, but only relatively flawed by Latin American standards, election in Venezuela.

      I am not aware of any military dissatisfaction with AMLO, other than grumblings about possible investigations of human rights violations. If anything, the rank and file, and junior officers have always tended towards the political left.
