    With the various reports from the past year of the incresing violence in Mexico, personally I thought it was a stalemate between the drug cartels and the government.
    Today I have surmized it is no longer a stalemate between the two, the balance has tipped in favor of the cartels and the government is no longer able to hold it’s own in this war. At this present rate of decline it may be a matter of time before the cartels rule the country and the Mexican government is deposed.

    With the many accounts of depravity in Mexico, can anyone say it isn’t the # 1 terrorist country in the world? This corruption from the top on down, is ignored by our govermment to the extent of calling them our “friends!” Do we say we’re friends and trading partners with Iran? No. So why should we tolerate the misery Mexico has inflicted on the US? We need to stop all contact with Mexico, seal our borders and let them finish themselves off. We guard the borders of the rest of the world to the tune of billions of dollars, but we can’t seem to find the money to build a secure fence to keep illegals frm Mexico and the rest of Central and South America out.
