Major protests in Mexico this month highlighted mounting frustration among many Mexicans toward violence that has claimed some 36,000 lives in the country since President Felipe Calderón declared war on drug cartels five years ago.

Some are now questioning the implications such public dissatisfaction may carry for the United States, which for the past several years has pursued a policy of supporting Calderón's fight against the cartels.

This is ridiculous, for the life of me I can not figure out why we haven't just told them point blank. Take care of the Cartels yourself, or we will and that useless rag called the UN can either join in on the clean up or keep quiet and let it happen.

Mind Boggling....

For those of you who might think that they are justified in pointing fingers at the USA and the US shouldn't be messing in their play pen...

Texas officials rebuffed President Barack Obama's claim that the U.S.-Mexico border is secure and told a congressional panel Wednesday that cartel-related crimes in this country are under-reported.

Putting up a wall will never work,nukeing them will not work ( and only make things worst for USA),shooting them will not work(as they come across any thing).MAYBE NOT GIVEING ANY ONE $$$ MONEY $$$ in this world might work and maybe not.Sorry to say there is not right answer yet and closeing all the borders ( not the store I think they are closed) will not work.

JUST MY $.02

P.S. if we did nuke them could them move all the taco bells there? and the jack in the box?

Wall

Who would want to nuke them or anyone for that matter?

We very well could and need to totally close the border forcing anyone and everything to come through the Manned Crossings.

The question is how long it will be before they can stomach doing it. Why would the USA be so involved over seas to ensure there is a working government, social structure and the beginings of a workable economy or the means for them to establish as stable as can be expected environment. When we won't do the same damn thing just south or out Nation when it has a higher potential of destroying this country than anyone else?

hell, doesn't make any difference and in the end just wasted mental masturbation repeated and always coming up a beat short.
