Well, DUHHH, Ive been saying this for a long time. Its time to put spy drones over Cd Juarez, and use those lazer guided missles to take the drug king pins OUT! That would do us all a big favor.

Great idea! What a genius! And after Mexico collapses, there will be nothing and nobody to keep people from launching weapons over this really tall electrified fence. How tall will this fence be? Will it rise to the elevation of Jack's bean stalk so that nothing earthly may pass over it?

Judging from the number of Mexicans who would die to live in the USA and how many have already come, Mexico already collapsed some time back.

Just legalize all drugs in Mexico, let the junkies move to Mexico. It would be an improvement of that nation.

So you are saying becaus a fence will not be a complete solution that we shouldn't bother building it? Boots or electronics or diplomacy or law enforcement are all not complete answers either...are you saying we shouldn't bother with those either?
you are retarded.

Get rid of the junkies and cartels will go out of business.
Oh I forgot Mexico doesn't have any drug addicts. Don't try and make my country the fall guy on that one. Human's love drugs and that's the realiity of humanity. Legalize pot and collect the taxes, case solved!

You come to conclusions that extend beyond the scope of what was said. I spoke of a fence that was electrified and how utterly useless that would be with a Mexico completely devoid of ALL ORDER. I did not bring up aything else you put in my mouth. Now, do not read into what I said about ALL ORDER. I did not say anything about them having great order or whatever else you would like to imagine I am thinking.

I just don't feel sorry for the country of Mexico. Its government has a history of not taking care of its citizens for years and corruption in all levels of government....but they sure are good a dramaticas!
There are ppl who claim to live here and are given free food from the various Food Banks and take it back home or sell it on the spot for whatever their reasons. They're not hurting.

Simplistic proposals for complicated realities. The junkies live in all sections of the Americas particularly in the USA. We tolerated the druggies after our soldiers began returning from Viet Nam addicted to hash and weeds only to escalate to harder drugs. People stand on corners asking for handouts unable or unwilling to hold a job because of addictions to drugs and alcohol.
The cost to society mounts in the millions or billions: broken families, homelessness, suicides, crimes, healthcare costs, etc.
When we start doing our jobs as parents and get involve in our children's lives they will have a better chance of rejecting drugs and marijuana.

Its a redundant story. Legalizing drugs is not the answer. It denies personal responsibility.

Sir do not get upset.The Mexicans will always blame this great country for their own internal problems. They have always argue that there are more drug addicts in this great country; yet, they have always are asking for hand outs from this great nation.Third world countries will always depend on us the CHINGONES ON THE BLOCK.

I hope doesn't happen. I HOPE Mexico can pull it together. However, I think Mexico has a civil revolt coming... it might be the only way to solve the problems. People blame the narcos, but I think it all stems from a general problem of just complete and utter corruption and lack of checks and balances throughout the country.
