    The UN should declare war on Mexico just to be consistent.
    Corrupt to the core.
    unconcerned about it's people.
    At war with a rebel force.

    hell, that's a trifecta

    Just legalize Drugs in Mexico and legalize Marijuana here in the U.S. That would cut down on most of the smuggling & violence. Just let Mexicans produce and sell their Drugs legally. If we don't want the other Drugs in our country then it's our responsibility to keep them out. Mexicans clearly like producing and selling Drugs. It's big business for them. Legalizing them would probably create Millions of Jobs in Mexico. And the Mexican Government could Tax them and make a bundle of cash themselves. There really would be much less violence in Mexico if they just went ahead and legalized drugs. Hey that's just my opinion anyway.

    love me some Mexico. PV is a blast. Guadalajara is lovely as well. the drive from PV to Guadalajara is unlike anything in the states. Guad also is where a ton of the super old school Aztec treasure is housed, A lot like DC, really cool museum's, totally worth seeing.

    You all are concentrating on a very small area of Mexico. Same as if we just zoned in on East LA, it wont be very inviting. The rest of the country is actually chill. Time Share is also huge in Mexico, lots of overseas money in that Country, they wont let that just up and leave over night.
