    30,000 since 2006.

    Already close to US combat deaths in Korea.

    At present rate - will surpass in a couple of years the 58,000 US deaths in Nam - which took a full decade to reach.

    All due to US consumer demand for illegal drugs.

    It is terrifying, ginscpy.

    What do you think should be done?

    Wholesale boycott of trade and tourism with Mexico. Embargo baby. Construct a physicall wall along the entire US-Mexican border. Send 50,000 US military to the border.

    They don't have anything we need. Treat them like Cuba when they became communist.

    NOT wholesale legalization of drugs.

    Humm, I think I'd go a different way here.

    But hey -- at least we agree something needs to be done.

    I'm not sure, ginscpy. Mexico has a terrible law and order problem. I can't claim I understand its culture or politics well enough to have much of an answer.

    I'd like there to be a dialogue though, and I applaud you for starting this thread.

    problem starts with US demand for drugs

    can you say one thing good about drugs????

    "snitches" -there should be more of them

    what the sub-humans want is for good people to remain silent

    Drugs are clearly a part of the problem. So is poverty and hopelessness. And now, an atmosphere of entrenched lawlessness.

    Whatever the solutions may be, I doubt anything will work quickly.
