They should smoke more of their product.

Then they might forget what they were supposed to be fighting about.

Guns , goons, gold and drugs abound. Pres Calderon is meeting Obama tomorrow. Maybe they have something in mind to solve this problem.

The Mexican government and military is corrupt from top to bottom. Yes, including Calderon. The cartels are in control of much of the country. It's going to go one-way only, and not for the better.

This.

As long as there is a demand, there will be a supplier.

If Colombia can do it, any nation can.

They had insurgents on the left and paramilitaries on the right and drug cartels dead center. And who was the largest consumer of Colombian coca?

It wasn't until recently that the mexican cop started fighting back, what with the billions of dollars we've given them to fight this war on drugs Will things get better in Mexico? Hell no. Worse part about it is, it already is and will much more so...spill over into the United States and make our already problamatic sociopolitical landscape that much murkier and dangerous.

Now is the time for all good men to arm themselves and their families and prepare for the worse. If nothing happens, well, you end up with a nice gun and ammo collection. But if the balloon goes up...

Yes, but as I recall didn't this ultimately turn into a wolf/sheepdog paradox?

Regarding the Mexico situation;
I agree with an earlier poster, as long as there is a demand there will always be a supply.
