    Too right and it's getting worse. Sooner or later this will pop!

    Is Mexico City safe from drug cartel war — or the next target?

    I really do want to go to Mexico City. One of those Bucket List things.
    But this is scary.

    If you can't even leave your hotel, what is the point of going to Mexico? there are plenty of places to go in the US anyways, like Vegas, Atlantic City, Florida etc etc

    Phoenix is the kidnapping capital of the US!

    Last year a couple I know went to a resort in Acapulco. The whole resort was ringed by armed guards. That's why resort grounds are considered safe.

    Sometimes the most unlikely places make good vacation spots, I went to visit a friend of mine in Houston last year and had the time of my life, they had awesome night clubs, sexy women and fantastic places to eat, and all of this is very cheap.

    I don't go on vacation. I don't like it. I don't like to travel. A few days off staying home is the best I can do. I move. I moved from California, to Nevada, back to California. I may be forced to move to London, but not if I can get out of it.

    Yes, but Mexico is at least fighting it! The reason kidnapping has increased is because the cartels are losing a ton of their revenue that had flowing from the drug trade. Believe it or not they have come a LONG way in this battle. I hope the Mexican people have the courage to get fighting. Calderon is one of the good guys. WE MUST SUPPORT HIM!

    The Mexican economy is growing and doing great. If they could keep clipping away further at the cartels power, then they could be in their way to becoming a semi-1st world nation like Chile!

    Mexican economy growing more than expected: survey - MarketWatch
