    Mexico in death spiral

    Tom Roberson

    Americans fearful of the direction our country is taking need only look south of the border to see the results of a country descending into chaos.

    Narcoterrorism has claimed the lives of over 31,000 and plunged Mexico into a death spiral as the government struggles to reestablish law and order. In an indication of just how bad the violence has become, Marisela Escobedo Ortiz was recently gunned down in front of the governor's office in Chihuahua as she protested the government's inability to apprehend her daughter's murderer. ... +in+mexico Mothers are sacrosanct in Mexico, and this unprecedented killing has prompted outrage from a populace weary of violence. ... e-for-teen

    The violence is also taking an economic toll as companies shun Mexico in favor of expansion in the US. Cheap labor no longer compensates for the uncertainty drug cartel violence has created. ... n+violence This violence is also affecting American imports of fruits and vegetables as inspectors are pulled out of Mexico for their safety.

    Mexican President Felipe Calderon has vowed to crush the drug cartels and is slowly making progress with actions such as the appointment of General Jesus Villa as police chief of Torreon, key to a major drug route being contested by rival drug gangs. ... SecondNews General Villa's first act was to fire most of the Torreon police force as they were actually working for the drug cartels.

    While America has yet to sink to the depths of chaos Mexico is experiencing, it does share a border with Mexico and the Mexican drug cartels are exporting their products, along with their violence, across our border. Criticism of American drug demand enabling and exacerbating the problem rings hollow as America is also criticized for supplying the weapons drug cartels demand. You can't have it both ways.

    The fact is that Mexican corruption begat a culture where drug cartels could thrive and they did. Now, the problem is too big to ignore or pass off.. Corruption is pervasive as a recent pipeline explosion in Mexico City was the result of thieves illegally tapping the pipeline to steal fuel. ... 19252.html

    And that's the way it is south of the border.

    "And that's the way it is south of the border"?
    Uh, I live in AZ and if If don't sleep with it. It belongs to Mexico.
    Yet I still control my domain, my possessions. And the only long guns I
    posses are my arms.
    Governments first priority is the security of its people.
    The irresponsibility and corruption of government is pitifully and shameful.
    All it takes is a few honest good men and woman. Problem Solved.
    Leaders cry whine and blame anything but their lack of honesty and
    leadership. Arrogant, Corrupt SO-B's!
