Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
Ten decapited bodies were found recently in Texas-all from Mexi-drug runners. Mexico is bleeding in to our borders states in every bad way known. Their scum is here because the money is greater. They are now responsible for the majority of weed and meth in the USA with no end in sight. Thanks Billy Bob Clinton and Georgie Boy Bush you are two real smart mother f***ers.
Think if Trump get elected how much resistance he will face with in all phases of our country from people to military to politicians. He must not win.
That has NOTHING to do with the reality that Mexico is in the midst of an extremely brutal turf war between the drug cartels, and both the US and Mexico would be better off if we jointly ended the war on drugs. Denial does not make problems go away.

I can't. This is important.

I'm very concerned about the Mexican governments ability to retain control over it's military and local police because of the influence of the drug cartels. The level of corruption is very deep. The cartels are actively recruiting soldiers in the areas they've been sent to patrol offering very generous pay rates.
Add to that the fact that the cartels are actually engaging the Mexican army in what amounts to small unit combat and you can begin to see a very precarious situation on our wide open and unprotected border. I can very easily accept that Chavez would see this an opportunity to "assist the Mexican people in their struggle."
If your goal was to undermine U.S. interventionism your best bet would be to force us to bring our troops home to deal with regional crises. Turning Mexico into a 1970/80's Guatemala would do just that. It's not as far from reality as we would like to think.
The real question is, if Mexico collapses would we take it? I mean, it's probably big enough that we can get 4 states out of it, that gives us a full column. But the water is terrible, so I don't know if we'd want to take it. I'd rather have Canada, at least then Alaska wouldn't be so lonely.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Is the on going mafia war in Naples, a prelude to the collapse of Italy and the EU and a massive European civil war?
So yes it is fear mongering by the right xenophobic minority that seem to have very large lungs, when we hear things like "Mexico possibly near civil war" or similar, and especially considering how the same people seem to want to have "enemies" and "issues" under every rock.. may it be so called liberals, commies, Muslims or illegal immigrants.
