    Ex-Mexico prez suggests truce with drug cartels - Yahoo! News

    MEXICO CITY (AP) — Former President Vicente Fox suggested Friday that Mexican authorities consider calling on drug cartels for a truce and offering them amnesty, speaking out a day after an apparent cartel attack on a casino killed 52 people.
    Fox, who served from 2000 to 2006, has since advocated legalizing drugs as a way to reduce violence. At least 35,000 and as many as 40,000 people have died since President Felipe Calderon launched an offensive against the cartels in late 2006.

    So why would the drug cartels want a truce or except amnesty?

    After all they are winning the war and are in control of the country.

    Exactly.

    The worst thing the US could ever do is become bogged down in this Mexican problem.

    Let them kill each other. Build a big fence on the border and keep the trouble in Mexico.

    Why a truce between Mexico and the drug cartels makes no sense
    September 2, 2011 - After the latest massacre of Mexican citizens, former President Fox said authorities should seek a truce with the gangs – a suggestion that isn't feasible, says guest blogger Patrick Corcoran.

    Bleh... they already do. The MX govt is paid very well to turn a blind eye to the drug cartel.

    The drug cartel are already in the US. How do you think so many drugs get across the border? We have corrupt border patrol, too. Plenty of them.

    That is just one of many many links.

    Former cops: The drug cartels are winning
    Friday, September 16th, 2011 -- "[Look] at Phoenix, Arizona," Neill Franklin, a former undercover police officer in Maryland, told Raw Story recently. "That is the number two kidnapping capital in the world. A couple years back they were averaging one drug-related kidnapping every day. We do already have these [cartels] in the United States, but you just don't hear about them very often. And when we do, it's not the 'undocumented workers' as people are often led to believe, it's the result of our drug policies."
