    WASHINGTON — Seeking to repair damaged relations, President Obama and Mexican President Felipe Calderon agreed Thursday to deepen their cooperation in combatting drug violence and declared a breakthrough in efforts to end a long-standing dispute over cross-border trucking.

    During a joint news conference at the White House, Obama praised Calderon for his “extraordinary courage” in fighting the violent drug cartels that have been responsible for deaths on both sides of the border. Obama pledged to speed up U.S. aid to train and equip Mexican forces to help in those efforts, but he also acknowledged that the U.S. must stem the flow of cash and guns to Mexico that have aided the cartels.

    “We are very mindful that the battle President Calderon is fighting inside of Mexico is not just his battle, it’s also ours,” Obama said. “We have to take responsibility just as he’s taken responsibility.”

    Calderon’s visit comes three weeks after U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent Jaime Zapata was shot to death in northern Mexico with a gun smuggled in from the U.S. The incident raised questions in the U.S. about Mexico’s ability to control violence and has Obama administration officials considering arming U.S. agents working across the border to ensure their safety.

    Mexican law bans foreign law enforcement agents working in the country from bearing arms, and Calderon vehemently expressed his opposition to making an exception for U.S. personnel. But he said Zapata’s death showed a need to consider alternative methods for protecting agents.
    “His death must urge us to work together to ensure a prosperous and peaceful future for our region,” Calderon said.

    Tensions between the North American allies were already heightened ahead of Zapata’s death. Secret State Department cables released last year revealed a grim assessment by U.S. officials of Mexico’s ability to fight drug cartels, saying the country has limited intelligence-gathering capacity and quoting Calderon as saying politicians could be tempted to return to a tacit policy of tolerating the gangs.

    Either legalize drugs and end the war altogether or send in the U.S. Military to start taking out the cartels. The latter is only a temporary solution, of course.

    Don't I agree with your first idea, as you said the second idea is just a temporary expensive idea where other locations could just increase what they send to the US and it wouldn't even be a temporary fix.

    So you are in favor of putting economics ahead of American lives?

    Legalizing drugs will infuriate the cartels...and likely create a war on our homeland......
    It will get very ugly.

    Mexico - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



    The economy of Mexico is the 11th largest in the world. After rapid economic, social and technological growth beginning in the 1990s, Mexico is now both one of the world's largest economies and one of the fastest growing economies in the world. With a stable growth rate of 7.6%.,[14][15] the Mexican economy is expected to nearly triple by 2020
