    oh... soon we'll get that war in mexico. and if we ever do, it better end the whole problem. do it once completely rather than do it and then have to go back and do it again.

    lets not make the same mistake we did in somalia and in the middle east

    From what I hear, there's already almost an all-out civil war in Mexico that's not covered by the media at all.

    Yes and no. There is already an all-out war, yes, but it is not a civil war, that's a really different thing.

    Right now (or at least up to february, that was when I moved out) if you are not a drug dealer nor a member of some law enforcement agency, you have almost nothing to fear, but a lost bullet on some cities in México.

    And about the media coverage, I don't know what about the states, but in México every time something happens, it makes it to the evening news and to the news papers.

    I totally agree. For every "Kingpin" captured someone else will step in to feed the demand. Nothing will change until the massive demand for illegal drugs abates.

    Wow. This is pretty amazing news.

    It's the real-life equivalent of catching Kaiser Söze.

    still arresting a guy responsible for thousands of violent deaths can't be too bad.
