Nassa, people here in US can't go out either because of Mexican drugs and Mexican gangs here.

Ahime, we do not respect Mexicans selling drugs to our kids either. Gunshots go through school buildings, teens and cops killed throughout US.
We are tired of it all.

Fernando, if you saw if for years, what did you do? Our tourism is down too and no jobs except for those selling Mexican drugs!

Ian, we won't send our kids there ot be kidnapped , raped, tortured and killed. Also, regarding arms, are you checking all the weapons internationally smuggled into Mexico from Israel, Spain, etc along Mexico's coast? Grenades, lauchers, etc. You might want to sit along the water's edge where all the big guns are getting through to the cartels.

Sorry for your pains chaps but we've got our own problems up here.
