Start one.  Then make the other players vie to get into YOUR band.  I'm not kidding.

You shouldn't have a problem. Drummers are way less common than guitarists...

Place an ad in Craigslist.

Isn't Craigslist an American thing?

No, I don't think so.

When I look at the right column in my local US craigslist, there's a whole list of other countries...

Correction: GOOD drummers are really hard to find. 

In addition to the ads: Find opportunities to jam with folks so they've heard you and know you're out there looking. If you know someone who's running a studio, you could try auditioning as a standby/session musician; that's another way to get to know other performers.

Check the classifieds in your local newspaper or independent paper. People are always posting "Guitarist seeks drummer/bassist " ads or similar, usually with a description of the kind of music they want to play.
