MEXICO CITY — Mexico said Monday it will increase tariffs on about 90 U.S. products in retaliation for last week's decision to end a pilot program that allowed some Mexican trucks to transport goods in the United States.
Economy Secretary Gerardo Ruiz Mateos said the U.S. decision violates a provision of the North American Free Trade Agreement that was supposed to have opened cross-border trucking by January 2000.
So wait a second...not even we have to take their illegal immigrants, not only do we have to give them millions of dollard to fight a drugwar, and we all know where all that money is going to end. Not only they have brought crime,gangs, and almost bankrupted border states coffins, but now they have the audacity to slap tariffs on our products! I think we should be done with Mexico, put all our troops in the border and let the people finaly overthrow those crooks that sit on that governement. I hate to say this but that country is in long need of a Hugo Chavez.
Ruiz Mateos said Mexico remains open to resolving the dispute and is "confident that we will find a satisfactory solution on this issue." The trucking program is one of the last and largest disputes between the U.S. and Mexico over the 1994 NAFTA accords. In 2001, Mexico brought the case before a dispute-resolution panel, which recommended that the United States comply with the program and allow Mexican trucks within its borders.

Instead of continuing the Bush/Cheney policies in foreign policy as the Obama has decided to do , perhaps he should redirect that entire war mentality by invading Mexico and all of Central America and give all those countries a shot at being Commonwealths of the United States.
