I think this needs to be repeated: PENTAGON USING DRUG WARS AS EXCUSE TO BUILD BASES IN LATIN AMERICA.

This is how imperialism works, and has been working for the past hundred years. Peg a group as deficient and inherently corrup/unable to help themselves (with a problem we fund/aid/make worse/invest in) and use that as a reason to intervene and reap resources/secure global hegemony.
