    Militarized Zone

    Is there a valid argument for a joint US/Mexico Militarized Zone to defend that border and control the murderous cartel activity?

    U.S. sold weapons south of the border empowers the corruption.
    Power empowers corruption.
    DC ignorance empowers corruption.
    Who you reckon is getting rich on this side of the Rio Grande?

    We'd do a lot better fighting this than loosing the lives of our fighting forces and wasting billions in the middle east in a war we will not, cannot win.
    Remember, we supported bin Laden when Russia was attempting to invade Afghanistan years ago.
    I support our troops, have had a son-in-law and a nephew serve over there (nephew's on his second tour in Baghdad) but cannot support this action.
    BTW .. I am a vet
    Best thing to happen would be for all our troops come home now.

    Read an interesting article this evening. Interesting site, a different perspective, from their side.
    Might provide some partial insight into why things are the way they are south of the border.

    Please re word that. It sounds like you are saying that the one's who have gone over there and did not return alive to defend this country from terrorist threats and terrorists wasted their lives in defense of this country. Hopefully I am reading that wrong.

    But I agree I would rather actually defend the borders of this country.

    What ever it takes we need to keep the drug cartels from moving here and controlling towns, cities, and then states. It is one of our greatest security risks IMO.

    Iraq never had WMD, aka: nuclear weapons. Why people are still defending Bush's war is beyond me. What a waste of life and money. For further discussion, see me in the political section.

    Back on topic....Mexico has not been interested in US help with any of the problems in that area. One must conclude that the controlling entities in Mexico are either not willing to "bite" the hand that feeds them or afraid for their own lives. The cartel organizations are terrorist based by every definition...I fail to see why we don't attack them like we did the Al Qaeda camps in Afganistan. And if the protectionist Mexican gov't doesn't help....we should just replace it ....just like we did in Afganistan.

    What's wrong Washington? ....to close for comfort? or is it something entirely different?
    Does this seem to be the "perfect storm" for the justification of a "North American Union" Army?
    Is that why the US/Mexican gov'ts are letting this fester?

    We don't go after them because they don't attack American towns? Maybe, just a thought.
