Over 30,000 Dead in Mexico

Updated on December 21, 2010

It started in 2006. The deadly war zones in the Mexican States near America's border between the Zeta, Gulf, and La Familia drug cartels for control of areas to smuggle drugs into the USA. With nowhere in sight ending, as 2010 ends, over 30,000 have been the object to the cartel's bullets, hangings, beheadings. Men, women, kids, and some Americans.

The word is among many Latinos is "don't go" to Mexico. Send money to loved ones but avoid driving there where incognito and official looking Federal troops stop cars with US plates or nice looking vehicles. They demand a hefty ransom to continue travelling, no pay? Bang, you are dead. See ya. Take a plane if you must go there, avoid driving there.

Since January, 2010. over 12,000 have lost their lives. President Calderon has sent the Mexican Army to battle (as in real war) the drug cartels mostly in the northern and western states.  Warfare has been bloody in Tamaulipas and Nuevo Leon ending will real shootouts in Mexico's third largest city, Monterrey, where many American firms have production sites. Monterrey is trying hard to avoid the bloodshed but it is spilling into its streets. Other cartels, like the Juarez and Sinaloa, battle for Ciudad Juarez resulting in producing Mexico's deadliest city to live in. Many of the inhabitants have left leaving it in "ghostly" fashion near the US border.

Even a Mexican Congressman. Julio Godoy of the Democratic Revolution Party, was taped speaking with members of the La Familia cartel, proving suspected ties even reach within the Mexican government.

Mexico is a country to avoid.

      I think it is serious now and Obama won't allow states to protect themselves, why isn't more fuss being made over this? Everything is so crazy and it keeps getting deeper and deeper, no one needs tell me Obama is not somehow personally profiting from this and apparently all the ones not screaming at him to protect our borders! Look at all the billions our government has put into drug control...get real...I think Hilary was responsible for the last fistful wasn't she? I'd like to send her butt to one of the borders. But then again that might scare off a few....

      All of you are correct-esta bien! The US is helping Mexico but until the cartels actually start killing more Americans there or when it spills into the US, will the US seriously deal with it.

      What I don't understand is why Mexican citizen, Carls Slim, who is the wealthiest person in the world, help out his country? Mexico needs a better Constitution and anti-monopoly laws, because Carlos owns all the tele communications, cell phone networks there. If the Mexican government wants to stop the "drug war", it needs to offer some opportunities to the indigenous people there.

      The U.S. Government has to change seriously its policy towards Mexico. Of all countries, Mexico is one of the most important for America. Our goal should be to bring prosperity and order to Mexico, since their own government has been impotent to do so. This will resolve the never-ending immigration issue as well as drug wars.
