Quote:The top three contenders for Mexico’s presidency have all promised a major shift in the country’s drug war strategy, placing a higher priority on reducing the violence in Mexico than on using arrests and seizures to block the flow of drugs to the United States.

This here war on everything has
to be winding down before too long.
It just ain't right to spend all that money
and all you get is violence fer a return.

It's going to take a whole military to stop the violence in Mexico. I remember reading an article about a police headquarters that was put up in Juarez... The cartel of that region came and blow it into bits... The police officers who weren't killed resigned and the headquarters was shut down!

The drugs will and have always flowed into the U.S.

Maybe ol Obamer should stick all his domestic drones on the border.. like they say ;)

Either way, there is no stoping problems at the border right now...

Sad truth!

Better round up some good ol cowboys to do the job.

Legalization of pot would bring the whole deal to a standstill. Back in the 30's when drugs were outlawed in the States there was 1.6% of the population that did drugs regularly. Now after all the years of war on drugs and education etc. there is 1.6% of the population still doing drugs.
It's time to throw in the towel on this expensive farce that's a total fail.

Agreed, funny how places like amsterdam have the lowest statistics of drug use..

Make it legal, it takes the fun out of it!

Plus its too mainstream, humans love their underground societies..

There's a hell of a lot more than 1.6% using drugs. Hell, there's nearly that many in prison.

A few years back the current Mexican Resident made the same promise to stop the drug flow. That pissed the more powerful cartels off. More than 50,000 people have been murdered since.

I am not your autumn moon, I am the night
