| "Narco-state" |
The phrase "Narco-state" is an exonym used to promote fear.
The term is used by Western commercially-controlled media, possibly to suggest national governments which will be targeted for "regime change". Recipients of this term include Peru, Guinea Bissau and Mozambique.
The Guardian in 2018 reported that "The Netherlands is starting to resemble a narco-state with the police unable to combat the emergence of a parallel criminal economy, a report from the Dutch police association has warned".
