    From Fox News – the Bill O’Reilly show Monday evening, January 24th:

    With Mexico’s bloody drug wars escalating, The Factor explored the situation with George Friedman of the international strategy firm Stratfor. “AFTER THE MIDDLE EAST,” Friedman said, “THIS IS THE BIGGEST NATIONAL SECURITY PROBLEM WE FACE. IF THIS VIOLENCE COMES ACROSS THE BORDER, THE KIND OF CIVIL WAR WE’RE SEEING JUST SOUTH OF THE BORDER WILL BE HERE.” Friedman theorized that Mexican leaders are NOT FULLY committed to ending the drug wars. “My view is that Mexicans want to APPEAR to do everything possible and fail; I don’t think the government sees this as a negative.” The Factor complained that U.S. politicians have also been too lax for too long: “THE DAMAGE THAT ILLEGAL NARCOTICS DO TO THE UNITED STATES DRIVES ABOUT 70% OF OUR CRIME, but none of our presidents have really taken it as seriously as they must.”

    Throwing $500 million at Mexico to solve this problem is like throwing peanuts to an elephant and declaring that as his meal. What in insult!!
