What a shame. These drug cartels are ruining Mexican tourism for all and don't realize that while they may be making the bucks through their violent and terroristic acts their country will suffer a great econonic loss as a whole. Not only does it affect their economy but it's a loss to their history. People are afraid to go see and learn about the wonderfully beautiful historical places Mexico has. Oh well, what do murderous drug dealers care that they are ruining their country as long as they can buy obnoxious houses and cars? All the money in the world wouldn't matter to me if I had to live in fear the whole time.

The cartel can feel the pressure of Mexican trade accountability. The drug lords will destroy the tourist market if only to hold onto the illegal cash stream a day longer.
Baja development is squeezing them out.
Is that so

Baja is squeezing them out into the U.S.

The drug cartels and the highest Mexican officials are in bed together and have been for years. Until the entire Mexican government is FORCED (preferably by the U.S.) to wipe out the cartels, this violent culture will thrive.

The Mexican government and the drug cartels have a symbiotic relationship.

Wake up the Los Angeles auditors, what is this bleeding border costing the U.S.
We will take the amount in refined crude.
Gitmo may find new life.

I just canceled my reservations in Merida. As a woman traveling alone, it doesn't feel safe. I probably would be fine, but who can relax with the after effects of headless bodies? What a pity. I don't understand the why and how of their crime, all I know is that as a tourist it is a huge loss for everyone.

Good idea. You'll be safer and you won't be contributing to a corrupt nation by choosing NOT to spend your hard earned dollar in Mexico.

Don't leave out the symbiotic relationship they both have with our open borders politicians. Our officials are also corrupt and bought off. They are doing all they can to keep the borders open for the criminals to exploit them.

'Our officials' are caught between Congressional apathy and the drug runner's weapon.
Baja will soon be China's port to the Americas.

Don't blame all Mexicans for crimes which take place there. How can an individual and ordinary citizen in a society which suffers under many issues fight against all kinds of lawbreakers. The weak structure of the state must be strengthen and that doesn't happen in one day or a year..Mexico requires more time.The US went through simillar -even worse- times in their past. Just remember the Wild-West and the 1930's ?!

Leadership. What Mexico needs are some heroes. How was slavery ended? How were Civil Rights won? Not through cowardice.
