US Navy gets more funding & more involved in 'Drug War'...
The bow of the USS Thach was slicing the Pacific waters off Colombia’s coast when the alarm suddenly blared across the US Navy frigate. It was time to hunt down a cocaine ship.

Armed sailors rushed to positions on the bridge and US Coast Guard personnel jumped on an inflatable boat to chase the drug smuggling vessel. After eight days at sea, the 240 sailors finally had a potential big catch.

The USS Thach was sailing the Pacific as part of Operation Martillo, a mission launched in January 2012 by the United States with Central American nations in an unprecedented militarization of the war on drugs.

Sometimes the smugglers try to outsmart the patrols by using fishing vessels or high-powered speed boats, but the most daring travel in makeshift semi-submersibles. Some can carry as much as a ton of drugs.

“We go on board these vessels and we try to determine whether or not they have contraband,” said Lieutenant Eric Watkins, head of the ship’s Coast Guard crew.

“We make sure we have 100 percent accountability of all the space on board and that is basically how we find drugs.”
