It sounds like the drug war has finally made the cartels rich enough to be politicians.

The War on Drugs is just another right-wing Republican failure.

And further advanced by Nixon to keep support for War in Vietnam. Protestor Activists and drug users were seen as one in the same.

Finally!!! I am just saddened that innocent people had to die because of this stupid "drug war."
The drug business (be it growing, trading or transporting) has been a source of income for almost two generations of people in Mexico. Add to that NAFTA and the disaster it caused to their farming industry. What do you expect people to survive on? They made a meager living through the drug trade and here come the capitalists to take it away. 'I cannot make money from this, neither will you. You G-D Mexican peasant!' Let the poor people make a little money. Why does it bother the elite of Mexico if a few people actually make a living?
'Oh but the cartels are spilling over into the US, look its boiling over, just look they are IN THE US!!!' Are they? There really is no proof that the cartels are responsible for any more deaths and violence than the good old domestic meth industry. If cartel violence in the US does rise then blame the US Government (at least 50%) for pushing Mexico into a drug war that we cannot even win.

Prohibition was the single worst piece of legislation in US history, and the only Constitutional Amendment that was repealed. (We can thank the Christian Temperance Union for that debacle.)

It took us 13 years to repeal it and another 70 years to bring Prohibition-facilitated organized crime back to pre-Prohibition levels.

We are now 40 years into Nixon's "War on Drugs" and 30 years into Reagan's appointment of a Drug Czar (the first "Czar" in US history). I guess we were a lot smarter 70 years ago.

You can thank the Moral Majority for the current drug war. Too bad many of their adherents offspring are strung out on meth in your finer trailer parks across the South and Appalachia.

"Growing and transporting drugs to the U.S." Mexico doesn't grow drugs. The transporters are Cartels....criminals in both Mexico and the USA.

Sounds like Nieto and his Party...want to put their own country's Safety and Welfare first. What is wrong with that? I wish that the US Government would do the same for us.

PRI looking for Mexico's safety? I hope you're kidding, during PRI rule there were constant disappearances, kidnappings were rampant, and the murder rate was even higher than it is now. I'm not supporting PAN's strategy either, but one has to call things as they are. Peña Nieto governed Mexico State for 6 years, it has the highest femicide rate in the country, even higher than Juárez, 18 of the 160 most violent municipalities in Mexico, five cartels operating in its territory...you could say it's a regional thing, except his state is far away from the border, and is in vicinity with Mexico City and Puebla, which happen to be way safer.

Is there someone you do support?

Any actions you think could be effective?

My heart breaks for Mexico.

Oh that's just brillant...Stop fighting back against the narco armies, that'll bring peace and security to civilians. Who gave you that bright idea - Romney?

Legalize and the bootleggers have their legs swept out from under them. We almost learned our lesson with alcohol but somehow managed to give ourselves amnesia......again

The drug lords are fighting among themselves for control over various territories.

The cartels rarely if ever hurt civilians. There's nothing to be gained by it.

Some of the cartels even have support in the civilian population.

I know...don't do what the imperialist Americans tell you to do. Do what's right. Don't hold a drug war. Good for you Mexico. Even more incentive to legalize MJ in the US.

Thanks to huge demand in the USA and our deep pockets ,the drug problem for Mexico will never end.Its supply and demand economics.

They could make a tidy profit if they legalize. It could make their economy skyrocket!

Yeah, they really should. But when half the government, half the police, and half the military are corrupt, it gets difficult. Money talks.

This was yesterday's demonstration against the "front runner" Enrique Peña Nieto from the PRI. There were about 90,000 people and it was echoed in 13 other states. Most of the people then stayed in the Zocalo to watch the presidential debate on giant screens. No one wants the corrupt PRI back except, perhaps the media who continues to push his as "popular and charismatic". http://www.jornada.unam.mx/2012/06/11/ There have been demonstrations against him since last month.
