Notorious Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman is being extradited to the US, the Mexican government confirmed on Thursday.
Mexican media reported he was at Ciudad Juarez airport

Mr Guzman is wanted in the US on charges of smuggling vast amounts of drugs into the country.

A Mexican government source told Reuters he was being taken to New York.

1. He's headed to NY?

I wonder how much a condo in Trump Tower along with a full pardon will cost him?

3. No can do. Too many cronies are making waaay too much money off it.

Plus, how else can a state of siege be kept up for 25+ years without being officially declared as such.

4. I know, a pipe dream, especially the next four years.

I really wish Obama would have done better in that regard.

6. Well, we'll get there someday.

In 70 years maybe, and only after the mountains of hypocrisy behind things like the war on drugs and terror become common knowledge. Everything takes time.

And welcome to DU, Justburnitall. Always good to have people who don't mince too many words.

May the muses be with you (especially after tomorrow!).

8. Well, he's wanting on murder charges,

kidnapping, ect. So it's not all the war on drugs. This is just a bad guy with no qualms about hurting or killing people, and he deserves to spend the rest of his life in a cage.

7. He'll have to change his name though - plus ditch the moustache and bleach his hair a little.

Trump does have standards, you know.
