U.S. generals cite Dominican Republic as ‘drugs beyond control’

DominicanToday.com - The heads of the United States Southern Command and of the U.S. Coast Guard yesterday painted a gloomy picture in the war on drug trafficking in Latin America, citing a lack of resources, American’s unabated demand, the cartels improved logistics and even the bust of a cocaine-processing lab in Dominican Republic.

In a hearing of the U.S. Congress, Gen. John Kelly, chief of U.S. Southern Command, which operates in Latin America, and Coast Guard Commander, Adm. Robert Papp, admitted a worsening situation and that the hundreds of tons of drugs are beyond their control and reach U.S. streets.

According to Kelly, all points along the drugs through the Caribbean corridor will continue to increase, and gave as an example new processing labs found earlier this year in southern San Cristobal province.


Medina also afraid of the Generals and promote more and more of them!!

Dominican Republic leader resumes mass production of generals

 

Domingo.- With a decree announced Thursday Dominican Republic president Danilo Medina resumes the mass production of military generals, promoting 16 colonels to the rank of brigadier.

The number of promotions comes as a surprise given Medina’s campaign pledge to cut the staggering number of generals -nearly 300 as recent as two years ago- which made the country a laughing stock.

Ramón Enríque Jiménez, Rafael Antonio Carrasco, Sugar Puttzi Frugis, Pedro Pablo Hurtado, Rubén Darío Contreras, Julio Cesar Solano, Luis Alberto Coronado and Vicente Mota Medina are the new Army generals.

The Navy’s new admirals are Edmundo Néstor Martín Félix, Franklin Jacob Diaz, Emilio Recio Segura and Félix Ernesto Cedeño, while the Air Force has Elvis Marcelino Feliz and Richard Vásquez Jiménez, Nelson Miguel Moquete and Oscar Ceballos Hidalgo.

Medina’s decree promotes a total of 2,911 members of Dominican Republic’ military branches.
