This links list focuses on the horrors of the gulags of the U.S. prison-industrial complex at all stages of the criminal and civil justice systems. The main, though not exclusive, focus is the drug war.

See also the following compilations (in order to avoid duplicating the links here). There are many links in the web pages below that detail drug war horrors. Especially the litany of horrors instituted by Rightist-Republican-led drug war laws. Also check out the many links listed in the first 2 web pages below about the incredibly long (5 years to life) mandatory minimum drug sentences, and also the 2 and 3 strikes laws. These sentences do not allow parole until nearly all the sentence is served. The far-right Republican leadership of the NRA (National Rifle Association) lobbied hard, and pushed these laws through at the state level - for many states. Many NRA members are not aware of this yet. TELL THEM.

*Republicans lead U.S. Drug War. Democrats follow Republican evil. Huge LINKS list! U.S. Drug-war Industrial Complex. Republican fundamentalist holy war. Friendly Fascism. Drug war leaders are the rabid right, hate radio, hate television, NRA (National Rifle Association), religious right, (snortin') George Bush the hypocrite, etc.. Republican-led drug war disenfranchises (no voting rights) millions of voters (mostly Democrat-voting blacks).

*Terrorism of USA. Death Squads, Drug War. Many links worldwide. Millions killed over decades. Mostly US-run or US-aided terrorist death squads worldwide. Other death squads, too.

Terrorism and corruption at all levels of politics, police, society, media, business, unions, government, etc.. Lists in alphabetical and chronological order. Huge LINKS list.

*World Drug War Charts. Just the charts. Few notes. Compilation of many charts, tables and rates. For incarceration, race, jail, prison, cannabis, drugs, mandatory minimums, drug related crime, poverty, murder, and more. Revised. The USA has 5% of the world's population and 25% of the world's prisoners. The USA surpassed Russia in the year 2000 and again has the world's highest incarceration rate! The U.S. rate is over 3 times higher than it was in 1980 during the first presidential election of far-right arch-drug-warriors Ronald (6) Wilson (6) Reagan (6) and Nancy ("Just Say No") Reagan. It is around 5 to 20 times higher than all other Western (long democratic traditions) nations.
