The best way for the U.S. to fight Mexico's drug problem is SECURE THE BORDERS WITH TROOPS.

This situation is basically a US problem with the United States being the market for these illegal drugs and the supplier of high grade weapons to the drug cartels. So the remedy is to secure the border with troops? I would think that working together in reducing the market and the exportation of arms would be a better solution. Don't you think? Or, rather, do you think?

Este problema no solo es de los Estados Unidos; la pobreza en México alenta a muchos a unirse a las organizaciones de narcos por la cantidad de ganacias que ofrece, aunque la mayoría de los consumidores del "producto" estén en los Estados Unidos.¿Ha escuchado usted de los narco-corridos?

And there you have it, rational debate degraded to hate and racism. Well done, you started well but sadly could only revert to hate.

Well, let's use vocabulary you understand. American rodents, moron, are creating the demand....the war on drugs is a complete failure, shared by I think 5 administrations now. Prohibition is a failed policy approach and it only creates crime around it. Sealing the border is a no brainer, in two directions to ensure we are supporting people who are suffering our drug habit.

Of course Mexico has issues and of course there is lots of corruption and crap that needs to be addressed, just like in our country only we hide it better, however, providing a 40 billion dollar industry for cartels and American interests (don't kid yourself, lots of profit being made at home on this) to kill over hardly gives a country much opportunity to try and reform anything. E

End prohibition, control the borders, let Mexico clean up the mess and I think we have our roles and responsibilities right.

And please....try and make a debate without resorting to racism. We as Americans are better than that.

Border-jumpers ARE nothing but animals that feel they are above the law.
Wanting to end it does not make one a bigot.
Better hope "our people" don't fall. Who will

Illegals have nothing to do with race you idiot.
In addition your post was pretty hateful itself? Pot calling the kettle, etc?

Tienes mucha razon. La pobresa en Mexico se presta a que sea un "oficio" bastante atractivo hasta que te llegue una bala. No he escuchado los narco-corridos aunque se de ellos. Solo me da coraje leer las opiniones de personas de cerebro de tamaño de un cacahuate y tengo que responder. No he escuchado los narco-corridos aunque se de ellos. Me da demasiada tristesa ver a una generacion de nuestra gente degenerarse a ese nivel. Gracias por tus comentarios

Better than you obviously. We've already tried reducing the market. Ever hear of the "war on drugs"
FYI moron, do you really think the government would stop the sale of any arms, ever? Our government works for big business in case you're too stupid to pick up on that.
The war on drugs has been an abismal failure. Until we begin treating drug dependency as a medical problem and not a criminal problem it will continue to be an abismal failure. As for the government working for big business, of course I know that that is partially true. However, there comes a time in which the government, no matter how self serving and how self centered must, due to public opinion, do the right thing.

Thank you for your sound and logical writing. I, too, am living in Mexico (Ensenada, BC) and find the discource to be innane and simplistic in its views. It's refreshing to read a logical and well thought writing such as yours. PS I love Monterrey. It saddens me to see the violence take over there lately

I reread American in Monterrey's comment and found nothing in there that was hateful. Can you write something without resorting to name calling? And, "border control" as you and those like minded people with you have everything to do with racism. If you will read those comments (including yours) you will see that you lump all Mexicans and Mexican Americans into one big pot which truly is black

There will be no hope in Mexico as long as there corruption in all aspects of their government.

They need another revolution, but the government and the cartels have all the fire power, just as they want it.

We have a right to bear arms and they don't. They have tens of thousands of murders we don't. You do the math.

Absolutely,and I think I was pretty clear that I was going to sink to your level so you might understand, however I can hardly stand up to your hate filled rants. My hate is of bigots and fools. If you think you can hide behind illegals as a word, but in the context of both the group topic and the rest of your comments expect anyone to believe you are not racist, then you are as big a fool as you present yourself. Go back and read your history, here and everywhere...,you fool no one.

I guess if you can deal it you should be ready to take it.

Mexico has issues no doubt, but before you post do your homework.

http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/cri_mur-cri...

USA wins in the annual murder count versus Mexico, granted on a bigger population but I think that is a sad post rationalization. Remove cartel executions and Mexico is club med compared to home.

Gov't corruption .... whole other debate. At a minimum I would say they are just not as good as hiding it as we are....we call them lobby groups and we sell our souls for the campaign money they bring.

I love my home more regardless....simply would love to see people do a bit of research before they jump to wrong conclusions. Mexico is bad but it is not as the media portrays it.

The white american will stand by themselves, you scum have isolated yourselves, you have only each other, and that is not much. I will enjoy shoveling your bodies into shallow graves, when the day comes.
