  2. México is not at war. Criminal groups are involved in tit-for-tat nonsense, but it's not a war.

    Many countries, including Honduras, Venezuela, and even Ecuador have murder rates far above México's. I was surprised that Ecuador's murder rate is so high, because I've driven all over the country in a jeep, and I felt much safer than in the highlands of Colombia or Perú.

    This is not a good start to the new year, but hopefully things will cool off.

  3. its only gonna get worst as long as the American economy is bad, people will want to get high and when its get better, people will still want to get high, by the end of this year it will be zetas VS Sinaloa, Sinaloa cartel stands no chance without help from the us because the zeta will take any criminal wanna be gang banger, anyone in their organization they have have numbers an unlimited numbers

  4. The end of the World for Mexico

  5. @9:36 PM no one expects anything different for 2012. Nothing is different, you are still visually impaired and use all caps. We can hope things go better for Mexico but they probably won't cause of the nature of the struggle.

  7. I am chocked to read all this. We are quiet happy to decided to move to Panama, which is certainly one of the safest places in latin america and middle america. Come to Panama and find out yourself. We run a small B&B in Boquete, where you can even walk on your own at night, even as a woman and no one will touch you.
