    Mexico doesn't seem like a tourist friendly place now.

    CIUDAD JUÁREZ, Mexico — A U.S. university student was killed in a shooting attack on a car, becoming the fifth American slain in this violent border city in six days, Mexican and U.S. authorities said Wednesday.

    Eder Diaz, a student at the University of Texas at El Paso, was killed Tuesday evening along with a classmate, the U.S. Consulate in Ciudad Juárez said in a statement.

    An investigator from the state of Chihuahua, where Juárez is located, identified the second victim as Manuel Acosta and said he was from Chihuahua's capital of the same name.

    Diaz, 23, was a business major while Acosta, 25, was a computer information-systems major, university spokesman Steve Lazarin said.

    Diaz was the fifth U.S. citizen to be killed in Juárez since Friday. All of the victims were from El Paso, which is across the border from Juárez.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Mostly just the border towns. I think it's safer if you go a bit farther south.

    I can't. This is important.

    Michoacanos

    Hrrm. Whats that one mean?

    Also, did they have relations to those who killed them?
    Did they get themselves involved in something?

    Or is it anti-americanism gone wild.
