So Mexico will support one drug cartel over another – seems like that is making a deal with the devil(s).

This town needs an angel of death to take out the drug cartels … of course that creates a vacuum that the devil loves to fill and the incoming may be worse than the outgoing.

I think disarming the people of Mexico was a bad idea. I think an armed militia with everyone in the country and city is the only way to check this blight. The police departments and the attorneys don’t keep the peace in the United States. The people do. I think Mexico is closer to revolution than many know. I think the people will rise up and throught out the drug gangs and the current corrupt government.

The only reason there are cartels is that the drugs are illegal. Want to see Mexico flourish. Legalize all the drugs, open the borders-IN (you can check out anytime you want but you can never leave). That makes just as much sense as making peace with the cartels-or the taliban.

And of course there is this…which is why I mentioned the taliban above.

“The ties linking Mexico to Islamic terrorism were underscored earlier this year when an alleged Iranian operative plotted to assassinate a Saudi diplomat in Washington using a hired gun on loan from a Mexican drug cartel. Rep. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.) says the mounting evidence of a Hezbollah presence in Mexico is being ignored by the Department of Homeland Security”.

My beloved city. It’s a horror to see what is going on there. A city that as a boy I could walk down the street at night time without a worry in the world, now more violent than Ciudad Juarez. Agreed that a revolution needs to take place. One where the citizens sick and tired will stand up and revolt against all this and do whatever is necessary to take back our city and the country. Please keep the victims of this senseless violence in your prayers.
