Legalize the godamn stuff and get rid of the Drug Cartel's power. That is a drastic measure and will get rid of them once and for all. If their product is worth nothing then they will have nothing to fight for!!!

These assassins have no soul. They did their dirty deed in front of the man's daughter. In God's eyes she has seen the worst any human can do to another. These assassins hide like cowards in drug paid homes and political protection. People of Juarez may know who they are. I think it is time for a reckoning, the Juarez people must stand up to these animals and send them to HELL.

Or either go vs the consumer. Enforce annual or semi-annual blood tests and incarcerate users. That should work too. JEEEZZZ

Perhaps they also got involved in the drug deals themselves, that is the way the govt in Mex has operated for years and years.

Joe, apparently the Mexican Army isn't doing much. All of the pictures, news video you see of them, I guess explains it best. Seems they are sitting at intersections in up-armored hummers, watching the lights change. Got all these high-powered weapons and yet, they sit. You would think they would all be out on patrols in the city, trying to make AGGRESSIVE contact with some, any of the cartel gunmen. That they would be on joint patrols , to provide extra security, with the local cops. Shouldn'the local cops know the areas of the city better?? So then why is it that only cops get killed?? Any Soldiers getting killed in this "operation"??. When is the first or last time anybody heard about an army patrol confronting any of these gunmen?? Should be total combat, but that apparently ain't gona happen. Its' really too bad that another journalist, reporter had to die in this blood bath. Print a story, name, whatever that some one doesn't like and your dead. So much for "freedom of the press". "Know the truth and the truth shall get you murdered".

People are to scared to say anything and/or fight against the. As you say, there the worst humans can be, so who will fight against them? Who has enough guts or fighting power to face them one on one? Money talks and thats why they rule.

If anything, they are just cowards. Oh well.

There soliders make $500 a month for Mexico and there weapons are a joke. So you think there going to risk there lives or fight against the cartel? A cold day in hell. Funny, you got all these so called "mexican" pride, my country/raza, but are to scared to back it up.

I SAW ON NATIONAL NEWS THAT PHOENIX HAS HAD 300 KIDNAPPINGS DUE TO THE CARTEL. NOGALES, PALOMAS, AND JUAREZ ON IN A DRUG WAR. ITS TIME OUR MILITARY GETS INVOLVED IF WE HAVE HAD 300 KIDNAPPINGS THIS YEAR. BUILD THE WALL AND LET THE MILITARY MAN IT AND IF ANY FUTURE DEATHS OR KIDNAPPINGS ARISE FROM THE CARTEL, TELL MEXICO WE ARE GOING IN. WHY DONT WE ASK OUR PRESIDENT ELECT WHAT TO DO. HE WONT GIVE A STRAIGHT ANSWER I BET.

I agree, if we can send the military to Iraq, why not just across the border where it is closer to home. The hell with what is happenening in Iraq, Juarez is our back yard.

With as many Mexicans inside the USA? I don't think going to war with Mexico is a very wise idea. We'd be putting American civilians at serious risk if we were to do something like that.

Why not just close the borders? Open borders are what makes the cartels so rich, that's how they get their money, their weapons. If you want to hurt the cartels, cut off their money source which is the wide open border.

Keep in mind when we went to war with Iraq, we didn't have 30 to 40 million Iraqis inside the USA, some who might be on our side, many who would not be on our side.

We don't share a 2000 mile open border with Iraq.

Mexican corruption and incompetence is what this is all about. They let this problem get out of hand by ignoring it for years while their "officials" got paid off, now the mess is out of hand and they can't deall with it. They made their bed now let them lie in it. Mexican idiots will never take responsiblity for or blame for anything, we received little to no cooperation from these corrupt pendejos for years and now they blame us and seek our help? FCK'EM.

As long as we have this mentality, as long as we keep the blinders on and don't come to terms with the FACT that the blame for this situation is shared on both sides of the border, the problem, the violence will not stop.

Dear Mexico: Enjoy your bribe money. Dear U.S.: Enjoy that joint, snort another line. Both or your consciences are guilty free, your hands bloodless. Right?
