The premise of this work of fiction is that major Mexican drug traffickers can operate with impunity in Mexico enjoying the protection of the Mexican Government as they flood the United States with heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana. The heroes of this work of fiction have likened the Mexican Government protection of drug traffickers to the protection the North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong received from the governments of Cambodia and Laos during the Vietnamese War. As veterans of that war my heroes witnessed how these governments provided safe zones for the North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong from the American Military and as Veteran DEA Special Agents can see how the same thing is happening in Mexico with major drug traffickers who have the financial means to buy off any government official. Using a Special Operations Team, originally assigned to Bolivia, to sneak into Mexico and do unilateral enforcement operations in Mexico my heroes not only hope to wreck havoc with the major traffickers but also hope to send a signal to those in the Mexican government who choose to protect these traffickers that they can not offer the traffickers a Safe Zone.
