Would you like to change your avatar and signature then? Your signature is particularly SICK.


It is? Well the both my avy and my sig are both from video games. Which are both fictional.

"BOOM! Headshot." Came from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

And my avatar is the from the Hitman series.

Again both fictional and are video games and things I thought looked cool. Has nothing to do with real life issues of any sort. Looking too deep into it. That is your opinion though.

Sorry if they offend you.

ETA: Sorry off topic.

Rather than taking away military grade firearms from cartels, an impossibility on the face of it, why not equip the Mexican people with military grade firearms en-masse?

This would tip the balance of force massively in favor of the non-criminal element.

Good question. Problem I see with this is the problem in general, greed. People can be corrupted by greed and things they want, for example money.

Not only that, I am sure the Mexican people are terrified of these cartels. Fear is their best weapon.

Well said.

Sometimes I think the U.S shouldn't be in the mid east it should be right here at home taking the fight to these monsters...

I have read many of Tom Clansy's books more than one take place in Mexico city with the American army kicking butt and taking names.

Tom/ Mexico city


All fiction, sadly


PS; love that avatar, he reminds me of someone...

mexico has always been this bad. I am not sure why people are surprised. I used to frequent it when i was a teen living in el paso texas.. you could just walk over to juarez mexico.

the border there was riddled with female deaths that were ignored by both united states and mexican law enforcement because the women would be dumped right at the border.

I really do not know why this is so outrageous. they have executed presidential candidates on live tv.
this guy
Luis Donaldo Colosio Murrieta (February 10, 1950 – March 23, 1994) was a Mexican politician, and PRI presidential candidate, who was assassinated at a campaign rally in Tijuana during the Mexican Presidential campaign of 1994.

I watched it happen.. it was unreal. ever since then i know how bad that country is.

the year i moved to indiana they found a bunch of graves cartel related at a ranch not too far where i lived. I went up to it a few times when i go out exploring the desert around my neighborhood.

Mexico has never been a nice place.. now it is just hell. Back in the 90s you were able to go over there "safely"... today all the places i used to visit are abandoned. Movie type mafia stuff happens there. My uncle owned bars in mexico and lived there too. as things got bod they began to extort him for money for protection.. yeah when he told us that i thought he was joking b ecause it sounded like an italian mafia movie.. well he was serious about it. he moved back to texas and eventually sold the bars because they threatened to put a hit on him since he moved out of the country to avoid paying up. he did sell the bars at a discount.


I really see no hope for mexico. the people are too uneducated and the ones who are educated are too few to do anything about it. All aspects of government are corrupt. It was not uncommon for police chiefs to use inmates to commit crimes for them. It is such a sad state.

My opinion: The US should declare a true war on drugs, send in a whole freaking army in mexico, kill the drug lords or anything that has the prefix 'drug', clean the whole of mexico and thats that.

I bet it wouldn't take more than 2-3 days to kill all of those bastards. If they're in a jungle somewhere just send F-16 and carpet bomb them, or they have fortified homes or encampments, carpet bomb the whole freaking area.

In my opinion thats what those sub-humans deserve.

Great now my pulse is going through the roof ... Hate those bastards.

That's right solve the problem by force, Worked in Iraq and Afghanistan didn't it.
How many more innocents will die if you invade another country?
If you did this you would just create more people who want the US destroyed.
Like I said you can solve the problem but I can't talk about it.

I didn't mean like Iraq and Afganistan, those are obviously occupations. Use the CIA and FBI get the names of the drug lords and their labs and hideouts, shoot and bomb the hell out of them. The strategic way not the invading way, no need to bomb cities.

Thing is you kill one and another will pop up in his/her place.
You gotta go to the root of the problem to find a solution.

Well, i've had short interactions with the mafia types in my town. I've seen some in some bars, some wanted to do bad stuff to me (theft or kill or beat up) and these guys are nothing compared to the guys in mexico, these are little puppies and you just can't change them its in their blood, its how they were rased the only solution is killing them without thinking about it twice.

As i called them in my first post sub-humans, thats what they are and they only deserve death for their actions. Its logical because they would do the same thing.

How is Mexico going to deal with these cartels if the bravest and best of their country keep getting murdered?


It's not about drugs, but about money. The cartels see officials like this as an obstacle to their riches. If people stopped worshiping money then the cartels would have no power. The worship of the golden calf has caused nothing but suffering and pain in this world.

Did you know there are 5 times more vacant houses in the US than homeless people? Why not give them all a house that nobody is using? Golden calf that's why. The golden calf, money, commands the rich to deny the poor. The golden calf commands the cartels to kill those who stand between them and the golden calf. The golden calf commands the poor to steal and the rich to pillage.

Don't like it when cartels kill people? Well you could stop worshiping their god, the golden calf.

Hmmm.

You have all got me thinking


This is what I love about ATS, we can take a tragic, tragic thing and turn it into a debate on the worth of continuing along this path or not.

Keep up the thoughtful replies and stay away from the Drugs!

I remember a while back seeing a interview with her, I have searched and can't find it anywhere. She was very passionate about her fight and this is truly sad.

No, you do not try and kill them all. What are you thinking? For every one you would take out, another would step in their place. The ONLY method of controlling this situation is to remove the demand for the drugs, or destroy the drugs, or their ability to obtain them.

Saying that, a great opportunity for some technology that can seek out and destroy sizable caches of certain drugs. If we can send spacecraft to Mars, then we could certainly do this if we really put our pencil heads of the world on the problem.

It is not being done, because either no one is in charge, or those in charge are as corrupt as the people with the guns. That later group would also seem to be a great target, but they would be readily replaced as well.

I would go with a high tech solution, and it must be done from the outside.

shut the border down, that will stop it.

allow NO one from mexico into the u.s. for 6 months
put automatic machine guns with heat seeking abilities
that lock on a heat source by them self, and then shoot..
warn everyone to stay away from the border.

this will stop the flow of drugs into the u.s. (or seriously slow it
down) therefor drying up the money generated from the u.s.

no one to sell to, the cartel's will slowly fade away.
before long, they will go broke and not be able to operate.

seems the u.s. is the main ones to take the illegal drugs to
for sale, so if you cut off the ability to sell the drugs, you
close down the cartel's..

im sure a few would survive, but after 6 months they would
be manageable for the mexican govt to handle.

She's the mayor that lives in gang territory...did it ever cross your mind to hire escorts? Especially after they already tried to kill you. Not trying to talk bad about her but that was stupid idea to go it alone and now you paid the price.
