    Arizona political candidates quickly turned last Saturday's murder of a Cochise County rancher into a border-security litmus test.

    Most agreed, in a flurry of statements and interviews after the killing of Robert Krentz, that U.S. troops should be sent to the Arizona-Mexico border.

    Rather than debating the need for troops, some have moved on to discussing whether they should be National Guard or active-duty military.

    U.S. Senate candidate J.D. Hayworth and incumbent John McCain attacked each other over the issue this week, as did Republican candidates and the Republican Party, who went after U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, a Democrat.

    The Drug War in Mexico is getting out of hand down there. I think it is crap that it took this guy dying for them to wake up. How many Cops have been killed along the border?

    And if they legalize marijuana, it will help stop some of the cartels from coming into the US.

    The drug war in Mexico has always been out of control since it goes hand in hand with their out of control crime. Since you have the president AND Hillary going down there putting the blame on the USA, it has gotten worse. The mentality of the cartels is ALL about dollars! They really don't care where the dollars come from but all the better if the people in power in the USA keep telling them that it's NOT the drug dealers/producers who are to blame but the drug users. And what better country to blame than the USA with its U.S. DOLLARS and those in power putting the blame squarely on the 'evil' U.S. of A.?
