VICE founder Suroosh Alvi travels to Mexico to see the effects of cartel oil theft firsthand.

Mexico’s notoriously violent drug cartels are diversifying. Besides trafficking narcotics, extorting businesses, and brutally murdering their rivals, cartels are now at work exploiting their country’s precious number one export: oil.

Every day as many as 10,000 barrels of crude oil are stolen from Mexico’s state-run oil company, Pemex, through precarious illegal taps, which are prone to deadly accidents. Pemex estimates that it loses $5 billion annually in stolen oil, some of which ends up being sold over the border in U.S. gas stations. As police fight the thieves and the cartels fight each other, the number of victims caught in the battle for the pipelines continues to climb.

The elite which suppress other energy technologies make it so gas/oil driven tech is the only option,so then countries like these ones only have one option for income which is this but....if those other technologies were available that didn't require gas/oil it would be self sustained.....

The Government of Mexico and its ruling families are the main problem. They take everything and leave the people to scratch a living off rocks. The cartels are a natural result of this. If you have strong institutions, little corruption, a middle class and a strong judiciary, the problem will solve itself.

When I was working in Oil there were only four refineries in the US that could process Mexican crude because it is very crude. The US has not built a new major oil refinery since the 1970s thanks to the EPA being "weaponized". We build on to technologies from the 60's. This more than anything else keeps the US from energy independence. Although thorium reactors or any true nuclear program would help. Support Donald Trump because the only reason to have an open border is drug, oil and human trafficking.
