Here's a few of Obama's plans for Mexico.
� Increase technology and real-time intelligence-sharing to allow U.S. and Mexican authorities to track and dismantle drug-trafficking cartels.
� Invest in anti-drug education on both sides of the border to reduce demand for illicit narcotics.
� Make a concerted effort to disrupt arms smuggling and money laundering from the United States that supplies Mexican drug cartels with weapons and
� Partner with Mexico to enhance the professionalism of its law enforcement and judiciary officials.
Thanks, Barack, for more vague and inspiring comments. First off, increase technology and real-time intelligence-sharing with Mexico? That would
take quite a close relationship to develop co-policing of two less-than peaceful nations. Mexico (and come on, the US too) certainly has no history
of corrupt law enforcement, either.
Second, drug trafficking legislation is a joke, as we all know the CIA works hand-in-hand with the drug lords of both Mexico and Central America. If
the taxpayer-funded education decreases demand, they'll find another way to keep it high. Strike two.
Third, make a concerted effort to disrupt arms smuggling and money laundering from the United States that supplies Mexican drug cartels with weapons
and funds. Whatever, just people pleasing rhetoric. What politician wouldn't claim this?
Finally, Partner with Mexico to enhance the professionalism of its law enforcement and judiciary officials. Partner? PARTNER WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT
AND JUDICIARY OFFICIALS?!

So, Barack says let's have a partnership (alliance, organization, cartel, union) with the executive and judiciary branches of the Mexican government.
Two NORTH AMERICAN
countries in perfect UNION
. Strike three.
