The Violence On Our Boarders Is Out Of Control. Get Ready For Car Bombs.
July 17, 2008 3:02am CST
Mexican drug traffickers have built makeshift car bombs to attack police, troops and rival smugglers as the country's drugs war turns increasingly violent, police said. Soldiers found two car bombs in a safe house in the city of Culiacan in western Mexico on Monday. One car was packed with cans of gasoline and another stuffed with canisters of gas, police said. Both devices were wired to be detonated by cell phones, said a police official in Culiacan, capital of Sinaloa state, which is home to one of Mexico's biggest trafficking cartels. Any use of car bombs would be an escalation of Mexico's brutal drug war that has killed more than 4,200 people since late 2006, when President Felipe Calderon launched a military-backed assault on drug cartels. In my opinion, this is unacceptable on our boarders. We haven't been able to stop drug smuggling and human smuggling, so the possiblity of cars laced with bombs coming into America is great. Why can't the Mexican government get it's act together? Americans have seen so many good paying jobs go to Mexico and it's not enough. Billions of dollars are transferred from America to Mexico every year. Mexico has vast natural resources and is a tourist haven. America has accomodated over 14 million Mexican nations, legal and illegal. So why can't the Mexican government get it's act together? Are you ready for Car Bombs in America? What's your opinion on this issue? Lloyd

The Mexican government is too dependent on dollars coming from the United States. They need to step up and become a country that can stand on its own. They need to ask themselves why so many of its citizens are fleeing the country or turning to illegal activities to earn income. They have no one to blame but themselves. They have vast natural resources and many tourist attractions. Lloyd
