The Border


Some thoughts on the US- Mexico border!

There is a scene in the film, where they reach a village and notice a road direction board. Honduras was on the left. Guatemala, on the right and they are free to drive into any of the territories. While clarifying Dulquer’s doubts on the absence of border check posts, John Vijay says “Why should there be a checking point? What will they check when there is enough poverty on either side”. 

The entire area is plagued by drug trafficking, giving rise to extreme violence and corruption, that impedes the progress in these parts of the world. May be if Trump takes more responsibility in fighting the drug cartels, he wouldn’t have to spend sleepless nights in his ambitious plan to construct walls all through the 2000- miles long US- Mexico border. But will he do it? Anyone who knows a bit of world history knows that the US certainly won’t. They are too scared about a Vietnam-like situation in Latin America and the prosperity of these nations would shake the US’s powers a bit.

Viva Revolution!
