Good job to the Feds! Ive noticed they have begun to pay more attention to the crime problem in Puerto Rico - of course there is much more for them to do but it's a start.

Several people have made that connection. Not only did the crime and drug smuggling increase but tens of thousands of people lost their jobs.

I personally think that the Navy should have kept Roosevelt Roads open and closed the Vieques gunnery/bombing range. The base was vital to ensuring our national security ... and now we are all paying the price, we have more drugs nationwide and Puerto Ricans are dying in senseless crimes.

If you ask me, once we are in our path to statehood, the Navy will return (and with a vengeance)....

But, then again, you'll have to ask me...LOL

Oh I think it's entirely possible the Navy could eventually return, especially if the local government keeps dragging it's feet over what to do with the former base land.

....and the "dragging" proves, exactly, my point.
