The Sinaloa and Gulf Cartels need to be taken seriously, and any threats against U.S. citizens and especially, U.S. law enforcement must be considered as serious as any domestic terrorism threat.

I doubt there is a single real American on the list. Even if there is, as long as they're on the list because their participation with the Mexican criminal groups -- good riddance to them.

Keep in mind, many Mexican criminals involved with car theft, drug trafficking and so on have been relocating to the USA for years. They've destroyed Mexico and now wish to avoid what they brought about. USA citizenship is nothing more to them than a convenient piece of paper that they believe entitles them to all kinds of USA taxpayer dollars and taxpayer provided police protection.

I hope the Cartels continue to play with fire and instigating trouble in the US. Because what they will soon find out is that the US does not play once its felt threatened. If we can take over two countries and kill and detain the bad guys we can definately take out wimsy Cartels. Ask about 90% of Al Quieda who are dead or in jail. Cartels are no Al Quieda.

And with this Country being so soft on illegal immigration it will be easy enough for these criminals to enter the country to carry out whatever dastardly deeds they wish.

About USA citizenship papers - don't loose any sleep over that one - they're here illegally and have no intention on taking the proper steps to become US Citizens.

DO NOT GO TO MEXICO FOR VACATIONS. DON'T GO TO MEXICAN SCUMBAG RESTAURANTS. DON'T BUY MEXICAN PRODUCTS. THERE IS A TERRORIST ORGAINIZATION CALLED MEXICAN ILLEGAL ALIENS. AND THEIR NOW THREATING THE UNITES STATES. WE SHOULD DECLARE A WAR TODAY AGAINST ALL ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. ESPECIALLY MEXICAN,CENTRAL AMERICAN. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.DON'T HIRE ILLEGAL GARDENERS.LABOURS,CONSTRUCTION WORKERS. ETC. CALL 911 WHEN YOU SEE THEM AROUND THE MALL OR WHERE EVER THEY BREED. EXTERMINATE THEM ALL.

But as shown if you make the US feel truly threatened we have a long track record of ending your life in a destructive violent way, The Mexican Cartel is coming up for its turn pretty soon,

These hit lists usually include judges, lawmakers and members of the police force.

Let's see... a suggested hit on Bush, McCain, Obama, and Clinton... a declaration of war on Latin immigrants... an Auschwitz-like wall along the entire southern U.S. border... WHEW! Thank God we're not as violently psychotic as those lousy foreigners.

The furits of drug prohibion are ripe. Thirty years of the WAR ON DRUGS. This is what we have, corrupt governments, drug cartels that are richer than the countries they operate in. Violent gangs in our inner cities that only exist because they make money off illegal drugs. The WAR ON DRUGS is already lost.It has ruined our country and much of the world. It may already be too late to fix the problems this war has created.

They need to hit some of the s--t we have in DC.
All of the self serving politicians and the extreame liberals that call themselves Americans and have never wore a uniform. They need to be deported along with the illegal immigrants at a minimum.

That's a tough call. While what you say is true, I believe it could actually be worse if drugs were legalized. I'd hate to think of a school bus driver starting their morning off with a few hits of the crack pipe. Also, as it stands now, the violent gangs are, for the most part, killing each other for the profits from illegal drugs. These gangs aren't going away if drugs are legalized, they'll just find other ways to compensate. For example, more carjackings, home-invasions, identity thefts, etc. This means that instead of killing each other, they'll be killing us. Remember, Prohibition may have lit a spark for organized crime, but when it was repealled the criminals continued to thrive.
