  1. This is sort of off subject from the article but.... People say the drug war is in part because of Calderon's pressure on the cartels and war on drugs, however now it seems it does not matter who becomes president or what thier stance on the drug war is because there is so much inter catel quarels that regardless of military police pressure the cartels will continue to battle right?

    1. Violence, fear, blood shed, & terror will always exist as long as drugs and money are involed. It really doesn't matter if they fight amongst themselves or fight other cartels. Also, it's doubtful that legalization of controlled substances will do anything to end the violence in Mexico.

    2. America needs to fix itself if it wants to lessen the violence in Mexico and abroad. A grass roots campaign is needed to enforce the dangers of using illegal narcotics. Parents who use will inevitably have kids who use; this in turn fuels the demand for illegal narcotics & subsequent violence. Offering tax based incentives as motivation to keep the public off of illegal drugs is one approach. Enforcing stricter anti-drug policies at places of employment is another. You fix the foundation, and the home becomes structurally sound.

  4. it's becoming a little bit boring:
    10 people killed here,
    12 people killed there,
    20 beheadings here,
    30 rapes there,
    ............
    yawn

    let's wait for something spectacular
    like for example, "members of cartel XY
    beheaded themselves and then raped their
    mamitas"

  6. I'm surprised that they don't leave car bombs timed to go off after the authorities are on the scene investigating the dead bodies in the car used to attract them.

    That's right, their feuds began before Calderon's move to put army on streets and it haven't slowed down their war between cartels.
