    It's a huge issue that is starting to spill over the border into places like San Diego and Phoenix. In the areas of Mexico south of California, drug gangs have recruited gang members out of San Diego and LA to work as enforcers on both sides of the border. They are heavily armed and have been killing cops and political leaders for YEARS now. The Arellano Felix cartel operates in that area and has been tied to dozens of political murders. They have infiltrated and begun to control law enforcement, the court system, and even the Mexican army. They are heavily armed, have almost unlimited funds to bribe and extort cooperation, and they kill anyone who tries to stand up to them.

    Americans are typically clueless and don't think they have anything to worry about. Too busy watching American Idol.

    No.

    Too busy worried about fifty guys in a cave in Pakistan.

    Bring the troops home and put them on the Mexican border.

    I am not kidding.

    The inevitable consequence of attempting to initiate "wars" on drugs and immigration.

    I disagree. The inevitable consequence of failing to conduct these wars as if they are wars.
