    Chavez openly despises us and our allies. Mexico is one of our biggest allies in Latin America. A civil war in Mexico would give Chavez the perfect chance to spread his "Bolivarian Revolution" and eliminate a US ally.

    Ha!!! I am actually learning to love Los Angeles...74 degrees today and sunny. Has been all week.

    Sure as hell beats the weather in Alaska right now. Where I used to live the high is -10.

    Chavez doesn't have the means to do to that IMO. Plus the Cartels wouldn't side with Chavez and those would be the people in charge of Mexico if a Civil war broke out.

    Currently, Mexico, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic, Panama, Colombia, Perú and Chile are the only latin american governments that are allied with the U.S. The problem is that Chavez is creating bolivarian parties and organizations in all of this countries. That is impossible to reach in Colombia, because Chavez is seen as an evil dictator even by the most leftists of the country. He is related to FARC, and FARC is considered evil by the 98% of the population, incluiding communists and former helpers of the guerrilla. In this December, I saw something strange, I live in Medellin, a city far from the frontier with Venezuela, however in the street I am watching at least one car from Venezuela everyday, maybe some Venezuelans are migrating to Colombia just like Cubans in the U.S.

    Mexico's state was very weak, so strong drugdealers have found a kind of refugee there. Currently the situation of Mexico is just like the situation of Colombia in the 80s with the terrorist cartels of drug. Also, Mexico is nearer to the U.S and is easier to traffic drugs from that country.

    That is why Mexico is interested in making better relations with Uribe, Colombia has a lot of experience in the subject, just like the colombian soldiers that the EU decided to send to Afganisthaan to help solve the landmines problem there.
    Obama is a fail...
