    How stupid it that. There is no way in hell I would cross the border for any reason.

    I under stand that in 2010 over 34,000 people were killed by the drug cartels in Mexico.

    They also love to kidnap Americans.

    So do you think it's a good idea to go there?
    If it's Cancun as opposed to Ciudad Juarez, then yes.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Yeah ahhhhh.... you keep going there. Im going fishing in Minnesota.

    I remember watching a documentary a year or so ago. The locals on the US side were quite upset and pointed across the border into Mexico. The camera pans that way. You can see billowing black smoke in the distance and hear gunfire. Cartel warfare in a Mexican town.

    Ive hear the same thing. And Im not sure we should do about it. Make that crappy area a part of the US? Before that I would legalize weed. I dont like pot but this seems to solve problems.

    I had not heard that. Could you please post your proof that Holder or Obama knew of it in advance?

    Thx, I'm looking forward to reading your information.

    As for violence being south of the border only, very wrong. The numbers of kidnappings that make Phoenix AZ 2nd in the world are perpetrated by illegal Aliens and Drug Cartels.

    Crimes in places like San Diego, L.A. take place all the time but because they are Sanctuary Cityies that refuse to enforce the Laws on the books,

    For those who think all the Violence is on the Border, guess again. The following headlines are from Aug, 14th until the 21rst, that's 8 days and I just picked a few and there are plenty more.

    Mayor Kidnapped Near Mexico City Found Dead

    Five headless bodies found in Acapulco

    9 Bodies found on a highway in western Mexico

    Attacks on Taxi Drivers, Buses in Mexican Resort City Leave 13 Dead

    Gunmen kill 5 in Mexican Pacific resort city

    11 people slain in Acapulco, Mexico

    The vast majority of people killed are innocent civilians and used to send the message that the Cartels are in charge.

    I am in America, everything that happens in its borders affects me. As for being so far north, in neighboring Washington in the agricultural mid-section there has been a lot of gang related violence and murders. Once these gangs get over the border It’s a 2 day drive to be here, world gets smaller every day.

    It appears from your posts that you would rather take the chances of becoming a victim.

    I'd rather live my life than stay bunkered down in my panic room. I don't take unnecessary risks. I'd rather visit Cancun over Gary, IN.
