legalize drugs and allow only the US govt. to sell and regulate it, therein reaping all the funds, and put the lowlifes out of business.
Anyone else know how to put them out of business cause the current method ain't going to do it.

Lima,
What about the hard core drugs ?, like meth, crack and Oppie, and illegal Arms ?,
I agree with legalizing pot, but these cartels deal with a lot more than pot.

Let's see allow ONLY the U.S. Government to sell and regulate it. Well I guess that won't create a market for bad guys to creep in on. If it is legalized do you think the criminals will move on to honest paying jobs or do you think they will move on to other criminal activity? You didn't put much thought into this before you posted that is obvious!

Marijuana is a critical start though. It will hit them hugely as it is the main drug. Besides it should just be legal by now.

Well how about this, since I get to think of it all day everyday here. Legalizing it....which is long overdue regardless....will cut cash flow (you can google the amount)....without cash you can't pay your nini;s and buy the police and politicians.....if you can't buy the police they will start to arrest people again....if you don't have money of course you will turn to other crimes but you will be much easier to catch.
Sadly life is not that simple but the fact is, marijuana fuels this thing and is all but legalized anyway in popular culture in the USA. Prohibition only benefits gangsters....that is the history of the world, how many times will we go this way before we learn......alcohol, gambling......used to be mob territory now gov[ts use it to close deficits

Doesn't matter, one less Zeta is better for the world. I just wish they would quit surrendering. These guys are the evil of the evil and coming to a town near you soon (if not already there) so cheer on everyone removed from the street. Time for the Gov't to align with the big cartels and take out these dogs. 90 cartel killings in Monterrey this year so far.....all the New Federation Cartel killing Zetas.....how can it be that a cartel can be 10 times more effective than the police??? Who cares, the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

The next in-line more then likely turned his ass in so nothing has really changed.
Mexico is just a lawless country and I don't see this Government being capable of turning the tide. The group Familia has been trying to create it's self a new country giving it's areas peoples protection from other gangs. And but of course the locals don't mind that at all.
The Zetas now cover huge areas including into Guatemala.
Mexico may be a lost country and things will get worse in all areas as there is no way to stop this growing beast.

They cannot turn the tide and the we refuse to address the issue from the North. This gov't will save it's political ass and negotiate within 4 months with the mainstream cartels. Calderon won his personal vendetta against La Familia, now he has his facesaver. If he doesn't negotiate soon, the PAN as a party is destroyed next year because everyone knows the PRI will do it when elected. He will start his negotiations soon if not already, he is no political idiot...just an idiot when it comes to waging war without a plan...only a promise from Bush. Vincente is already calling him out on it. The real enemy right now is the Zetas, as you say correctly, here, Guatamala, and my friend, they are already in the US as reported by multiple agencies. Let's hope Calderon doesn't hold onto the war on drugs as long as my country has. This one doesn't have the infrastructure to stand it.

Where do you make a stand? Speeding, rape, robbery, murder all continue to happen and we can not completely stop them so do we legalize them also? Criminals will not be without money. Criminals will break the law no matter what and buy the Police and nini;s (whatever that is). How are other crimes much easier to catch but the crime of marijuana is so difficult? Marijuana is not completely legalized anywhere in the WORLD! Did you happen to see over 100 mobsters get arrested back east today? If you smoke marijuana you have blood on your hands!

"Obama Motors" were it not for the gov stepping there would not be a GM left. They in their arrogance built the wrong cars for too many years. They have had foreign assembly for decades. To call this Obama Motors really shows how misinformed you are. Try reading or listening to something other than Fox, and Rush.

My friend there is a very big difference between crimes of violence or crimes against the person or the state and using marijuana. You only have blood on your hands because we make it illegal. Most people are so desensitized to the issue that they don't even know the problems it makes here and elsewhere. We glorify actors on TV for their habits. It has become a socially acceptable substance so it's time to legalize it, like we did alcohol, like we did gambling. Gangsters will always make money, we shouldn't make it so easy for them. As for the world, while not legalized it is mostly decriminalized and definitely normalized. We are supposed to lead the world not follow it. When one state falls with their laws, the war in Mexico will end or at least move on to something new.....with alot less margin in it.

You do have a point, if capturing this one guy stops one Mexican from being murdered, raped, or forced into slave labor is stopped, it is well worth it.
