    ..REYNOSA, Mexico - A car explodes outside a police station, another outside a television station. A gang is suspected of massacring 72 migrants. A prosecutor investigating those deaths suddenly disappears.

    Mexico's drug cartels seem to be adopting the tactics of war zones half a world away.

    The violence appears to have contributed to fewer migrants crossing the border into the U.S., officials say, as they have to traverse some of Mexico's most dangerous territory to get to Texas. Mexican officials, meanwhile, warn that there likely will be more in the coming months.

    "Violence will persist and even intensify," President Felipe Calderón said at a forum on security where he vowed he would not back down.

    If authorities confirm the explosions were car bombs, it would mean a total of four such explosives have been used this year in Mexico - a new and frightening tactic that officials say the cartels are using in the escalating drug war.

    No drug gangs claimed responsibility for Friday's violence in the northern state of Tamaulipas. A survivor of the massacre, however, said the killers identified themselves as Zetas, a group of former Mexican army special-forces soldiers who are now a lethal drug gang that has taken to extorting migrants.

    Kidnappings and attacks on government security patrols are rampant in the highways surrounding San Fernando, where the bodies of the 72 Central and South American migrants were discovered on a ranch Tuesday, bound, blindfolded and slumped against a wall.

    'Violence will intensify,' Calderón warns

    In other words - Mexico is doomed and the cartels will now govern.

    Legalize marijuana.

    Decriminalize all drugs.

    Prohibition is and has always been a failure.

    Sure thing. If we can not stop it we should give in to it.

    You are aware that home burglery can not be stopped, millions of break ins a year, why not just legalize that as well? We could sell licenses and permits for each act. Think of the crime it would stop.

    We can not stop contract killers or well other murders either, perhaps we should just sell a license for that as well?

    People in Mexico are not dying because of Marijuana.

    And the argument that hard drugs are not a threat if we legalize them is bullshit. Cocaine kills as does heroin and other hard drugs. You think we have a problem because of robbery and burglary because drugs are illegal? Legalize them and your problem will double in crimes to gain money to buy said drugs not to mention our society will disintegrate.

    That's right!

    Promote the use of drugs to American children by legalizing it.

    Manufacture the legal drug in America with the appropriate taxes that will drive the cost sky high (like cigarettes).

    So, business as usual for drug cartels selling the cheap alternative.

    Yeah!! That really solved the problem!

    IMHO, They already have. With the Cartels attacking political figures now you'd think Calderon would be a primary target with his "war" on the Cartels... But there hasn't even been an attempt.
