We are better to Liberia in only one thing: Our failed country still is able to build industrial facilities in countries such as Germany...



... however, we still trial behind the stabilization and development reached Liberia, as could be appreciated...

We missed the oportunity - because this is an old thread - to know about your country of origin. A country which very probably have very Little to do with Mexico.

I think that Canada is a developed and democratic country.
México is the SECOND economy of North America, in some measures two places above Canada in world ranking.

Mexico is the 11th Economy in the world, and Afghanistan is 104th or so.
And if Canada is as wonderful as you say... Why more Americans want and do live in Mexico than Canada?
Canada do have a Little more trade with the USA, I think that is something in which it beats Mexico, I agree.

I am not being offensive with Canada, but to say that México is "like Afghanistan", I think is a bit too much.~~

wikipedia as a reference? That's laughable.

The sites I visited rate Mexico at 21 and Canada at 11.

Canada is 5 times the size of Mexico and has a third of the population? Why is that?

Is it because Canadians are more socially responsible and generally only have children they can afford?

Is it because Mexicans have no social responsibility at all?

Is it because Mexican breed like rabbits?

Or, is it all of the above?

man this thread is old.

yes mexico is a failed stated,it all started along time ago with their full support for crime. anything that has made them cash has been ok. the cops and gov just look the other way for a few bucks as they all have for ever just about. not showing any morals or values of anything other than money.

go to borderlandbeat to see what they have and it is coming here do to failure who want open borders and refused to close our borders. finally the drug cartel guys have taken over the mexican gov has no control over anything.

those folks are here as well and starting to show themselves more. those who keep pushing for open borders and illegal aliens are welcoming the same crap mexico has. most will not know until the start fining bodies stacked up or hanging off bridges,even then our gov will refuse to solve it.

The group that annually reports on the failed state index do has its own definition for which country is and which isn't a failed state. There is also this politically incorrect article posted every year called "Postcards from Hell" where they list the countries with the worst scores and why they think deserve to be listed as a failed state.

You are free to look for Mexico in the current (2013) or any previous edition, but you aren't going to find it, you are far more likely to find many of the countries that USA allegedly "fixed".

when we see things like this happening in a country it is only do to being a failed state.

http://stream.aljazeera.com/story/20131002012...

these folks are having to do for themselves what the mexican police and government refuse or cannot do do all to corruption on all levels.

the body could have been said to stay at 50,000 yet has not moved up yet daily murders and kidnappings. the news can only be aired what is allowed by the cartels there or the reporters get killed.

this is not being shown on our news do to it is so close and the agenda for open borders wants it hidden from the American people. they sure don't want the general population knowing all thats happening right next door having open borders and all.

maybe when this happens here the medai and our government will stop trying to hide it.

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/mexi...

sure would hurt tourism if this was on our news showing what is right next door. and those coming here need to be seen as most likely part of what is doing this.

funny our local news will show things happening on the other side of the world yet neglect this.

For my is amazing that some Americans push this thread up when, if things go wrong, the USA could be days from defaulting its debt.

And if it do not default now, many trends are unsustainable in the medium and long term.

But keep pushing the thread up. We all learn something.

Without these beaners stealing American money Mexico wouldn't have one of the largest economies in the world. Mexico is just like another Somalia or Pakistan if the illegals were to be deported back and stop stealing our economy.

Honestly, Mexico is not one of the largest economies of the World. It is number 11 by PPP, and it has been more or less so since the 70s... even when it traded and had much less contact with the USA in any sense.

In reality not much has changed for Mexico... it has, so to say it, a long term way of being.
