LIes, LIes and LIes

No Country that has America in its Affairs can Survive

With such sadness I write this post. I found this article, below, on the news section when I opened my yahoo mail. As I am sure those all over the world do. Today in Yahoos five brief headlines, that instantly form opinions without even opening them, is one entitled “Mexican Collapse? Drug Wars Worry Some Americans” How dare this crimminal and evil nation of America step by step create and carry out a plan that will give them the needed excuse, or lie, to try to once again invade and take over Mexico. The American government and its people have been working until this point, where Americans fears run high enough, to accept their neighbor as a terrorist. And they are using their media to shape the worlds image of Mexico, as well as their own citizens.

America was lax about so called illegal activity at the their southern border, drugs flowed freely. Then 911 and the story about terrorist. They asked Mexico to stop the drug trade, but did nothing to stop the demand for it from their own country. Then they escalated it into a war. They ask Mexico to turn their military against their police with the excuse of stopping the drug dealers. Sheer havoc. They legally and illegaly arm them all. And then tell the world how violent Mexico is from what they themselves have purposefully caused, and now feel they need to make a bigger war out of, to make another battlefield of death and destruction so they can claim it theirs and that they have scored another point for freedom and democracy.

And all this is on top of all the other wrong and crimminal things America has done to Mexico. And all they have done in the past to give Mexico an undeserved bad name. So now their government says to the American people, when you think of Mexico, think of Iraq and Pakistan, and think of terrorism, think of all those scary unamerican things out there. And everyone knows what they must do to terrorists to make the world safe for themselves.
Once again, I reread this viscious lying undermining article written by a nation that it the worst threat to mankind and our earth yet. This is not true, they are building this reality ahead of them, shaping what is not so and does not need to be. And while the world is contaminated by this American propaganda and pays little heed what is happening here, that evil nation sinks its rotting teeth right into what could be a great and progressive country. I say to the world, pay attention to Mexico too, do not let it fall like so many countries have fallen because of our common enemy, America.

Mexican Collapse?
Drug Wars worry some Americans

Press Writer Traci Carl, Associated Press Writer –
Mexican soldiers stand on guard at a house where marijuana plants being grown were found in Tijuana. Indiscriminate kidnappings. Nearly daily beheadings. Gangs that mock and kill government agents.

This isn't Iraq or Pakistan. It's Mexico, which the U.S. government and a growing number of experts say is becoming one of the world's biggest security risks.

The prospect that America's southern neighbor could melt into lawlessness provides an unexpected challenge to Barack Obama's new government. In its latest report anticipating possible global security risks, the U.S. Joint Forces Command lumps Mexico and Pakistan together as being at risk of a "rapid and sudden collapse."

"The Mexican possibility may seem less likely, but the government, its politicians, police and judicial infrastructure are all under sustained assault and pressure by criminal gangs and drug cartels," the command said in the report published Nov. 25.

"How that internal conflict turns out over the next several years will have a major impact on the stability of the Mexican state."

Retiring CIA chief Michael Hayden told reporters on Friday that that Mexico could rank alongside Iran as a challenge for Obama — perhaps a greater problem than Iraq.

The U.S. Justice Department said last month that Mexican gangs are the "biggest organized crime threat to the United States." National security adviser Stephen Hadley said last week that the worsening violence threatens Mexico's very democracy.

Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff recently told The New York Times he ordered additional border security plans to be drawn up this summer as kidnappings and killings spilled into the U.S.

The alarm is spreading to the private sector as well. Mexico, Latin America's second biggest economy and the United States' third biggest oil supplier, is one of the top 10 global risks for 2009 identified by the Eurasia Group, a New York-based consulting firm.

Mexico is brushing aside the U.S. concerns, with Interior Secretary Fernando Gomez-Mont saying Wednesday: "It seems inappropriate to me that you would call Mexico a security risk. There are problems in Mexico that are being dealt with, that we can continue to deal with, and that's what we are doing."

Still, Obama faces a dramatic turnaround compared with the last time a new U.S. president moved into the White House. When George W. Bush was elected in 2000, the nation of 110 million had just chosen Vicente Fox as president in its fairest election ever, had ended 71 years of one-party rule and was looking forward to a stable, democratic future.

Fox signaled readiness to take on the drug cartels, but plunged them into a power vacuum by arresting their leaders, and gangs have been battling each other for territory ever since.

Felipe Calderon, who succeeded Fox in 2006, immediately sent troops across the country to try to regain control. But soldiers and police are outgunned and outnumbered, and cartels have responded with unprecedented violence.

Mob murders doubled from 2007, taking more than 5,300 lives last year. The border cities of Juarez and Tijuana wake up each morning to find streets littered with mutilated, often headless bodies. Some victims are dumped outside schools. Most are just wrapped in a cheap blanket and tossed into an empty lot.

Many bodies go unclaimed because relatives are too afraid to come forward. Most killings go unsolved.

Warring cartels still control vast sections of Mexico, despite Calderon's two-year crackdown, and have spawned an all-pervasive culture of violence. No one is immune.

Businesses have closed because they can't afford to pay monthly extortion fees to local thugs. The rich have fled to the U.S. to avoid one of the world's highest kidnapping rates. Many won't leave their homes at night.

The government has launched an intensive housecleaning effort after high-level security officials were accused of being on the take from the Sinaloa cartel. And several soldiers fighting the gangs were kidnapped, beheaded and dumped in southern Mexico last month with the warning: "For every one of mine that you kill, I will kill 10."

But the U.S. government is extremely supportive of the Mexican president, recently handing over $400 million in anti-drug aid. Obama met briefly with Calderon in Washington last week and promised to fight the illegal flow south of U.S. weapons that arm the Mexican cartels.

While fewer Americans are willing to drive across the border for margaritas and handicrafts, visitors are still flocking to other parts of Mexico. And the economy seems harder hit by the global crisis than by the growing violence.

The grim assessments from north of the border got wide play in the Mexican media but came as no surprise to people here. Many said the solution lies in getting the U.S. to give more help and let in more migrant workers who might otherwise turn to the drug trade to make a living.

Otherwise the drug wars will spill ever more heavily into America, said Manuel Infante, an architect. "There is a wave of barbarity that is heading toward the U.S.," he said. "We are an uncomfortable neighbor."
