Travel Alert!!! U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE


travel.state.gov

April 14, 2008


This Travel Alert updates information for U.S. citizens on security situations in Mexico that may affect their activities while in that country. This supersedes the Travel Alert for Mexico dated October 24, 2007, and expires on October 15, 2008.

Violence Along The U.S.-Mexico Border

Violent criminal activity fueled by a war between criminal organizations struggling for control of the lucrative narcotics trade continues along the U.S.-Mexico border. Attacks are aimed primarily at members of drug trafficking organizations, Mexican police forces, criminal justice officials, and journalists. However, foreign visitors and residents, including Americans, have been among the victims of homicides and kidnappings in the border region. In its effort to combat violence, the government of Mexico has deployed military troops in various parts of the country. U.S. citizens are urged to cooperate with official checkpoints when traveling on Mexican highways.

Gotta love this logical information......


U.S. citizens are urged to cooperate with official checkpoints when traveling on Mexican highways.


Followed by this.....


Criminals are armed with a wide array of sophisticated weapons. In some cases, assailants have worn full or partial police or military uniforms and have used vehicles that resemble police vehicles.


Hmmm? Yeah.....okay, use common sense folks! Stay home and start to build a fortress.

Logic? Common sense? If the idiots would just relegalize drugs there would be no gigantic criminal gangs fighting over trafficking turf. Common sense is dead.

Dozens of Americans have been kidnapped, killed, or end up missing due to the ongoing war between the Cartels and the Mexican Army. This has been going on for over a year and finally the US govenment is going to warn us? CNN had a story on Lou Dobb's show two years ago, Two Freaking years ago that at least 40 Americans had been kidnapped or killed. Not a peep from the State Department or the rest of the News Media.

You would think 40 Americans being kidnapped or killed would be a big deal.

Relegalize? Drugs have been illegal in the US for a long long time. Granted that crack-coc aine is now the same as regular coke!
I agree with you that common sense is dead, too bad, now we all physically have to catch up in the next few years! Think of it as an adventure in survival!

Depends on which ones you're talking about. The most popular has been prohibited for less than 100 years. Another gaining popularity was scheduled just a couple years ago, depending on the state. And of course alcohol is still legal.

This warring in Mexico is a consequence of the War on Drugs. Make something illegal to sell and only criminals will be trading in it. Up the punishment for selling and only the most ruthless violent thugs will be in the business. And that's where we're at today. The hands of our government are soaked with the blood of every American that has died in this war.

While I am sure many would want the 'drug' in qustion to be cannabis, this is not a money drug. We KNOW what drug this is about.

It is also about us taking off our shoes at the airport (whenever the planes are flying) but we got small armies popping in and out of our country from the south.

The next step is to have the DEA and Justice department 'contract' security to the local mercs, Blackwater must be drooling all over themselve right about now.

Yeah, and pulled troops from hundreds of miles of borderland months before the BP was able to take up position.

Not to mention the ones who have set up semi-permanent camps in our national parks. They don't even have to smuggle the bud across the border anymore. They grow it right here in our most sacred soil.

Of course, there is more than one product that contributes to the border wars.
