Well, maybe if the funding that the USA sent them to fight the battle was funneled where it was meant to go, instead of in the polticians' pockets, the battle might have had more positive results!
yes, Teddy however Fox & all these Mexican top officials WILL NEVER ADMIT TO THIS GOING ON! instead they ask for more aid & money. Calderon himself has had the guts to say what we're giving them IS NOT ENOUGH & MONEY IS WHAT THEY NEED....why the money? when we have air aid in the way of helicopters, unmanned drones, cameras and BP men. Never mind all this they want money, why and for who? to bribe who? for their own pockets? cartels? we have a right to know WHERE THE MONEY IS GOING!

Darned right we do! As far as I am concerned, we need to stop all aid to foreign countries and only dispense it on an as-needed basis. We have given all these darned countries too much money as it is, and nothing has ever gotten any better because of it, because it was never spent on the things of which it was intended. Frankly, it's infuriating. We give them aid, they get money to fight the "drug war" and the illegals send them billions in untaxed remittances, and still Mexico whines for more.
