This paper reveals that American expenditures into the international drug war for the Colombian government appear imperialistic and encouraging of the drug trade in cocaine. The author points out that, although major cartels were overthrow from 1999 to 2002, a wider range of smaller to middle level cartels arose to take their places until 2004. The paper stress that, because of these actions, the drug trade appears to have taken on a far more profitable place in the Columbian, especially with some of the larger and medium sized cartels still having a great influence in the pro-American government of Colombia from 2002 to 2004.

From the Paper:

"This case study examines the information surrounding the use of the Columbian drug trade to destabilize third world countries, such as Columbia, by the United States. By deregulating the international drug market, especially with cocaine, the United States helps create inner conflict through drug lords and militia groups. Through the use of drug cartels government agencies in Columbia became corrupt by the advent of the CIA and other United States organized operations to use Columbia as an illegal market for cocaine. In this manner, American imperialism helped forge a stronger drug center in South America that supported the Colombian government and the drug cartels. This imperialistic factor in American/Columbian relations is by far the most interesting aspect of the drug trade between the yeas 1994-2004."
