Mexico is the land to the south of the United States. Of course, many years ago states like California or New Mexico or Utah or Texas once were part of Mexico. It is a land in which criminal drug gangs run rampant, defying any police, any military unit, and simply decide who to kill and when to kill. Two years ago about fifty college students were taken off a bus and murdered. Their bodies burned, and still no one knows who or why this outrage occurred. During the past three weeks three priests were murdered. Father Alfredo Lopez Guile was taken from a church and five bullets pounded into his body. Most probably he gave the wrong sermon about standing up to drug lords.
We Americans are a main cause of the drug horror that consumes Mexico. WE have created this crime monstrosity in which 97% of crimes are not solved. The first step to begin the road to peace in Mexico is to legalize drugs in the United States and end the concept of drug lords. Of course, most probably the drug lords will switch to prostitution of gambling or something else.
