    1. Close the embassy and require all US government personnel to return back to the US

    2. Lock down the border or only allow travel within a certain time span

    3. Let Mexico fix its own mess

    Time for some Noriega style tactics.

    It worked wonders in Panama.

    Not that it actually concerns any of my future travel plans, since I've never had a desire to go to Mexico, but the military has put all border towns of Texas and Arizona off limits to military personnel except for official business because of this incident.

    It's time find out who is responsible for the attacks and then hunt them down using the same tactics we used to get Pablo Escobar back in 1993.

    The hit squad ****bags need to be aware that attacking Americans means they and those around them die and their drug cashes are destroyed.

    All the blow up the bad guys stuff sounds good from the arm chair view but it needs to be remembered that these cartels have their own armies with personal on both sides of the borders. remember all the drug related court house bombings and assassinations in Columbia? Would not surprise me to see terrorists attacks by the cartels on American soil if the military goes in after them. These guys are underground fighters and dirty tactics are favorite tactics. Young old male female all legitimate targets to them. Like Mason said. They are not afraid of anybody and they are not just willing to kill they are eager to kill.

    You want to end the drug violene in Mexico.

    Lock up the white people for possesion for the same lenght of time that black people in the US get.

    It is a matter of supply and demand.

    Get rid of the demand and the supply will drop

    So you're claiming that the Mexican problem with drug violence can be attributed to the US's crack-powder sentencing disparity?

    Given that the DoJ is pushing for an elimination of the disparity, we can expect an end to all Mexican drug violence once that takes effect, right?

    Is that really even possible? Most likely that would take the US military.

    I am saying that demand for coke is higher in the white community then the black community (wealth and numbers).

    The strong demand by white americans for cocaine pushes the supply by Mexican drug dealers into the US

    You decrease the demand, the reward for the risks involved go down, meaning less violence. Overall not many people are being killed over magic mushrooms, or even LSD. But over coke and pot, quite a few.


    Of course if I was to make the decision I would make drugs legal, but controlled by the government and taxed heavily

    In absolute terms, yes. In relative terms, use is relatively equivalent across ethnicities. Of course, absolutely none of this has anything to do with the sentencing disparity which you're referring to.

    You decrease the demand, the reward for the risks involved go down, meaning less violence. Overall not many people are being killed over magic mushrooms, or even LSD. But over coke and pot, quite a few.
    Again, you're making the entirely unwarranted assumption that harsher penalties will lead to drastically reduced demand, and the additional assumption that said reduced demand will put an end to drug violence in Mexico. There's absolutely nothing to support either of those claims.
