  1. “Poor Mexico, so far from God and so near the United States”.

    I find it odd that most who comment on the Violence in Mexico don’t mention the role the good old USA
    Our Drug Laws have done nothing to reduce the abuse of drugs, however they have spawned a number of industries, the prison industrial complex here and the the Cartels south of the border are BIG business.
    The USA originally trained and armed Los Zeta’s as an elite anti narcotics strike force…
    Happily the whole “Gunwalker” operation didn’t restrict it’s sales to just one Cartel.
    I could go on…
    Given the current political reality both here in the USA and in the Republic of Mexico it’s just going to get worse.

    • the entire land has been a failed state full of corruption over its entire history. trying to pick one of two reasons is like trying to empty the ocean with a spoon
