Payback's a Bitch

MEXICO CITY - Mexico's attorney general on Wednesday demanded U.S. authorities do more to stop guns and drug money from heading south and fueling the drug violence in Mexico that left more 2,000 dead last year.
"It's truly absurd that a person can get together 50 to 100 high powered arms, grenade launchers, fragmentation grenades, and can transport this cargo to our country," Medina Mora said. "It's a task that needs a much more decided and determined effort from the U.S. government, and it's one of the demands we have put on the table."
"It's unthinkable that organized crime can get these amounts of money," Medina Mora said. "These transactions are not happening within the (Mexican) financial system. They are mostly from the flow of cash from the United States to Mexico."

Gosh more demands by the Mexican government. Don't they know that these poor drug smugglers are just trying to feed their families? Just doing the jobs that Americans won't do. What is truly absurd is that the Mexican and American government don't admit that they are the complicit in this tragedy by not working together to secure the border from both sides. The most logical solution is often the simplest solution.
