    They caught one of the bigger fish. Golly gee, I wonder if the Federales will use *torture* on this scum El Mochomo if he doesn't spill his guts? :eusa_whistle:

    Tey must have got some new toys they want to show off. Some king pin will buy them off and the fight will be over until another 25.

    Calderon promised reform. Looks like his word is good so far.

    Wouldn't that be nice. I wish him luck but with corrupton at every level the only way to fix it is mass firings of government workers, from the top down.

    True. Corruption has been the way of life in Mexico...things will not change overnight. However, he's been making some headway against the drug cartels. The fact that he sent in the military feds is significant.

    He needs to send them into about 2/3 of the government buildings.

    I've been to Mexico once, so its not fair for me to say, but my impression was that the street cops were crooked as hell. So I can only imagine what the desk sitters are doing.

    Mexico has been slowly growing a middle class which can make money without corruption, and which therefore has no stake in continuing a corrupt system. In fact, since they are the victims of it, both directly and indirectly, they have a stake in ending it. When this class becomes large and powerful enough, the situation will begin to change.

    The Left always blames Third World problems on capitalism. But the reality is, Third World problems come from not enough capitalism. When large numbers of people are making money from the free market, they have a stake in enforcing the rules of fair play which allows that market to flourish. (Corruption involves directly, or potentially, violating the 'rules of fair play' which are what the capitalist market is based on.)

    If Mexico can become a decent, normal country -- just Canadians who speak Spanish and believe in God -- it will change everything, especially the immigration problem. We may even have to clean our own toilets and gut our own chickens.
