Perhaps we should declare war on Mexico. It's a stretch, but how else are we going to quell the ongoing violence stemming from a nation teetering on the brink of a brutal, bloody civil war? Its tentacles are creeping slowly into the United States each and everyday... It IS an invasion.

Phoenix, Arizona is the number two kidnapping capitol of the world. Hard drugs flow through our kids' schools like chocolate milk. Rising murder rates are widely attributed to illegal aliens/those from Latin America involved in the drug trade. Gang numbers are skyrocketing thanks to the drug war,(over half the gang members in Los Angeles, for instance, are illegal aliens with ties to cartels.)

And there is no end in sight. Each year in Mexico, the numbers resulting from the drug wars rise, despite so-called "efforts" from President Calderon. Like it or not, our crime rates reflect this, and it will only get worse. Sure, we can put the military on the border, but they'll only act as human cameras... Without a declaration of war, they're unable to do anything more than point at an illegal alien crossing the desert.

People seem to forget the ever-growing chaos and violent disarray that's occurring just south of us.

We have a dizzying war zone just miles away from us that grows and threatens our nation each and everyday. Something needs to be done. It's all too close for comfort.

There's little incentive for Mexican law enforcement. They're killed en masse and compensated significantly less than their drug cartel counterparts... This leads to an escalation in violence, corruption, and desertion.

Victims from the drug war are getting younger. Crimes are getting gorier. Car-to-car gun battles are becoming a part of the scenery. How soon before this becomes the norm in our own nation?

What a pathetic racist statement from a real POS. Actually, we should "declare war" on the likes of you.

Declare war??? Damn we need to cut military spending drastically in addition to activating selective service. Time to end "war" as the means of solving problems. Has it worked in Iraq and Afghanistan? How much, how many dead/wounded and how many years has it taken and still ...

While Phoenix has problems what about El Paso? Its crime levels are below the norm of most American cities.

Actually, nothing racist about it if you're not a Mexican, dbp.

After the Texas War of Independence, Mexico refused to acknowledge the Rio Grande as the boundary between us, raiding into Texas, stealing cattle, killing people, leading eventually to the Mexican-American War. After we took Mexico City, the Mexicans decided we meant business and signed over half their nation to us.

Now, they're doing the same thing. It's been a while since they've been kicked in the teeth. If we sent troops into Mexico, the Federales would quickly decide it was in their own interest to control their own citizens screwing up our country.

Get over it, dbp. Your ancestors signed the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo and turned over all of present-day California, Nevada and Utah as well as most of Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado. Don't say we didn't compensate them:$15mil.

It is apparent that YOU are the one who brought up race and are therefore the racist. Nothing said about race until you opened it up. Get over your hatreds, join the real world and get a life.

No need to declare war, simply return ALL ILLEGALS and seal the border EFFECTIVELY and the problem will take care of itself. Nothing else required on the part of US taxpayers.

Are you kidding? We're already bankrupt with the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. Besides, no one would loan us the money to go to war with Mexico and rebuild their infrastructure afterwards.

Which is worse, the Mexican scandals with drugs and corruption, or the Americans who allow it within OUR borders? Who is the real enemy here, us???

Let's not go to war with mexico. I watched the documentary "The Mouse That Roared" and it shows that a war with mexico would actually cost us a lot of money. Bad idea.

We don't need a war with them to resolve the problems we face w/ Mexico, we simply need the cojones to address the problem(s) and the government refuses to.

More than just the govt. Those that hire them don't want any part of being involved in fixing the problem. It takes internal solutions to address the issue. 25% of illegals fly/drive in legally and never leave. The problem is beyond the borders of Mexico and Canada.

Or maybe we could cut down on the U.S. appetite for those drugs? Maybe take a little responsibility for this problem that we have had a small part in?

Agreed, there are many ways to curtail ILLEGALS.

Although I agree with you<GASP!!!>, either our programs for rehab are woefully ineffective(for the most part) or many really don't want to quit. However I must admit too that recidivism in this case *MAY* be due to the easy access to drugs so doing them again is not hard to accomplish.

No war need be declared. Annex Mexico, make it the 51st state. They would then be official citizens. Every single one of them.

We would then have authority to declare martial law, have our Nation Guard and since they are now citizens, have the IRS deal with them.

Solution in a neat and relative tidy manner.

After all Mexico already has their southern boarder covered.

The quickest way to stop the hordes of illegals from continuing to cross our border is to threaten war with Mexico. The U.S.A is considered to be one of the greatest countries in the history of the world. Yet we all have to suffer the embarrassment of living next to one of the worst countries in the history of the world. I say tell the Mexican government to get their act together as a country, or they will lose their rights as a sovereign country, and we will determine their future for them. The whole situation has become pathetic.
