    Mexican Cartel violence: 22 dead in shoot-out near Texas border area

    Mexico City — A Mexican border governor said Monday the death toll from a weekend battle between drug cartel members and security forces has risen to 22. Coahuila Governor Miguel Riquelme said two additional gunmen died overnight. He did not say whether they had died of injuries from Saturday's gunbattle or in subsequent operations.

    Riquelme said 16 gunmen and four police officers were killed. He said two civilians also were slain by gunmen after being abducted.

    They love the smell of money so I doubt it.

    Simple economic solution, quit empowering criminal enterprise with our continued and failed 'war on drugs.'

    Nope; President Obrador of Mexico will solve the drug cartel violence with hugs, not bullets.

    But, frankly, I am not for sending any help to that ****-hole country.

    2019 - "New Government Map Shows 80% of Mexico’s 266 Districts Are Controlled By Drug Cartels
    .. as of 2018, “the Taliban controlled or contested 46 percent of the districts in Afghanistan’s civil war.” ..."

    Let's tell it as it is: Mexico is right to blame Americans for what has happened to their country.

    The cartels operate in Mexico because there seems to be a big demand in this country for certain illicit drugs.

    So these cartel murders and political corruption are going to continue to corrupt Mexico as long as there are a lot of Americans who want those drugs.

    To the best of my knowledge, there is no effective educational campaign in this country to discourage young people from becoming drug addicts.

    How would we do that, OrphanSlug? Because the Cartels seem to take over anything that makes money in Central America. They are right now in the process of taking over avocado orchards. Who knows, perhaps they will eventually take over cocoa and coffee in Central and South America.
    It’s in the small things that the rot starts. Do the wrong thing once, it’s easier to do it again. Do the individualistic thing once, it is easy to do it again.

    Why would Mexico want our help? We can't even control our own gun violence problems.

    It is not a "gun violence problem", anymore than Afghanistan's issues can be boiled down to gun or bomb violence, Superfly. Mexico suffers from rampant state capture. In certain areas, if you are a government official and you do not want to do as the cartel tells you, they will kill you and your whole family, and little can be done to stop them. You take your orders and your bribe money from the Cartels, and if you don't, you die.
