    We really would have done Mexicans a favor if we had just taken over the whole country and not just California and Texas.

    • Avatar Edison Draxler says:

      How about just ending the bullshit war on drugs and stop intervening militarly in latin america

    • Avatar raveneye12 says:

      @Edison Draxler sure let’s have meth dealers selling to our kids at school. Sounds like a great plan, if that’s how you like to live just go to Mexico . You heard how they threatened the girl to sell drugs. Sounds like your kind of place.

    • Avatar Wayne says:

      Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming also.. How about Americans stop selling 200,000 guns to the cartels every year. Look up operation fast n furious if you don’t know it. It don’t go well anytime Murica invades another country.

    • Avatar Noe Cazares says:

      You can boast but just remember that a Russian Invasion is bound to happen in American future.

    • Avatar Zain Chupacabra says:

      Then there would probably only be about a fifth of all of them left, because there are very few Native Americans left today as well.

    The Mexican government is the most corrupt in the entire world, and that’s saying something, especially considering this started right as Mexico became a parliamentary democracy around 2000. At least a corrupt dictatorship has a linear structure that can be worked with and is an extension of the state. In Mexico since the fall of the “perfect dictatorship”, the new parliamentary state has basically been turned into an extension of the criminal drug cartels. In no other country in the world, even Colombia, is such a dynamic present. The cartels have completely taken over the country’s life in the last 20 years, and made the Mexican government a puppet for the cartel kingpins.

  4. Avatar John Beige says:

    The armed public is the best way to end the cartels but Mexico wonts the drugs business to grow so they can get more money

  5. Avatar John Beige says:

    Mexico needs a 2A

    Coming to America folks…..PREPARE.

    • Avatar Noe Cazares says:

  7. Avatar Licensed Drug Dealer says:

    All these cartels cloak themselves with false heroic propaganda. Nothing changes as the nature of cartel is always about making $ by ruining others lives.

    the police are scared in Mexico as they should be the cartels ambush them all the time respect to the good ones the brave ones.

  16. Avatar Victor Salgado says:

    My family lives in Morelia & trust me the cartels. Run everything even during COVID they make the lockdown rules even in rocky point at 2am theirs not one person in the street or you get picked up & killed they are in charge of Mexico

  17. Avatar gato gordo says:

    Stop buying drugs look what you fuel with your awful habit.

  18. Avatar Graeme Glen says:

    If I was a cartel boss, it would be in my best interests to keep my crew from interfering with the local people and businesses. You do your business, I’ll do mine. You stay out of my business, I won’t machine gun you in the street in front of your family. But, I guess becoming a cartel boss is not the kind of job sane, far thinking people aspire to.

  19. Avatar Brian Kiama says:

    Gun running must be a very profitable venture.Guess it’s part of the reason these scenarios occur the world over.The gangs are very similar to ISIS and co in their mode of operation.Could be coincidence but whatever it is,people are reaping from the suffering of innocent civilians

  20. Avatar CHARLIE TAYLOR says:

    But guns are illegal in Mexico does this gun control doesn’t work lmao 😂

  24. Avatar brent lund says:

    I DON”T GET IT. Where is the Mexican Army ?

  25. Avatar John D. says:

    So it’s plainly obvious why the boarder wall is necessary. Not to mention why Americans want to deport illegal immigrants!

  26. Avatar seppomuppit says:

    Who would win, the Italian Mafia or the Cartels?

  27. Avatar HunterShows says:

    Stay out of our country.

  28. Avatar Seraphim L says:

    This will never end, self defense forces will become the next cartel even after they take out the cartels. Maxico is lawless country should b wall up n isolated from the world. The cartels can only b destroy an invasion lead my intentional military.

  29. Avatar Isaac says:

    The US should invade Mexico …. and take over south America its probably the only way to fight the cartels

  30. Avatar Old ManWillyBoy says:

    Los povrecitos de Mexico! No se deservan essa vida!

  31. Avatar Mel Tyson says:

    Mexico is a complete failed state and sad to see a beautiful country with a great culture, fall in the hands of criminals

  32. Avatar James Allen says:

    Where are they getting all of the weapons and ammo from? America. Where are they getting all of their money from? America.

  33. Avatar John Tanner says:

    Can you imagine we are just a porous border away?

    • Avatar Harris S says:

      It’s scary

    • Avatar John Tanner says:

      @Harris S I live in a border state. I can see how they can buy over the neighborhood to ply their trade. I am seeing that and there is nothing I can do unless something really bad happens.

  34. Avatar Andres Manuel Lopez Pablo says:

    This is what the government corruption had done with this region of Mexico. PRIAN corrupt political party, has alway been coluded with drugs traffic, this region is call the Golden triangle, here is where the drugs laboratory are operating, and this is the main route for drug trafficing to USA.

  35. Avatar əvāsive says:

    legalize drug’s and this problem ends Narcos wont beat the U.s at making drugs, since weed is legal now they pretty much stopped smuggling it the demand aint there and our weed is better and forcing out a corrupt polician

  36. Avatar Major Cbass says:

    Such a shame, imagine how much economic growth Mexico could have without all the government corruption and cartels.

  37. Avatar Gerald Arnoult says:

    Are you an American citizen?, unless your involved in criminal activities like the Cartels, an American citizen has a better chance of being murdered in the U.S. then Mexico, how much are you paying these people for the interview?

  38. Avatar Harris S says:

    This is very sad , I hate drug and drug dealers.

  39. Avatar Joaquin González says:

    La violencia en México 🇲🇽, es causada por los narcotraficantes, que producen y trafican para el mercado estadounidense 🇱🇷, que son compradores y consumidores mundiales de drogas… Los Estados Unidos no hacen nada por arrestar a sus traficantes en suelo gringo.

      LoL… I’m still waiting for u pu55y militias with your 2nd civil war 2 BS talk… Funny your such an IDIOT!!! Under your Law and Order president, we was getting a lot closer to that kind of violence. Even attempted kidnaps of governors…

  41. Avatar Tracy Martinez says:

    Really!!!! Elections are a joke in the entire world. Specially in the US and Mexico!!!!
    What a joke and laughable!

  42. Avatar Anonymous Anonymity says:

    The cartels work with the government of the US too, secret societies split up in different regions of the world. You don’t believe in the illuminati? This is just the edge of the ice berg, down a dark narrow deeper than the abyss itself.

  43. Avatar EMILIO Rubio says:

  53. Avatar Ray Q says:

    People don’t understand that democracy and freedom only work in advanced civilized society. Countries like Mexico do not fall under that category. What really will help the Mexican people is a smart and ruthless dictator like politician who can crack down the opponents from root – including Cartels which are biggest threats to their ruling and has the wisdom and willingness to put revitalizing the economy as the first priority. Only after the drug business are replaced by the legal ones like manufacture or services can democracy and freedom rising up to replace the “strong man” dictator. Always choose the system that fits for the situation.

    But there is one big big factor that needs to be taken into consideration – US… In order for this to work, the new leader must obey the US even more than they do today to avoid being assassinated by CIA and also able to convince the US gov that it’s better for the interest of US for him to rule Mexico than the Cartels. That means the drug problem in US has to get worse to a point that it becomes first priority or the part of economy of US that depends on Mexico becomes so significant also are being jeopardized by the Cartels, so the US gov would rather have a “strong man” as ruler of Mexico who can unite the country and provide a strong economy than a divided Mexico whose sovereignty is in the hand of US. Timing is everything.

  54. Avatar David says:

    All this misery and death because of America’s insatiable appetite for drugs.

  55. Avatar Ricky Bachman says:

    I’m not sticking up for Narcos but a retired couple living in Colima that I know said they were being extorted by a cop for $40 each week when they drove to get groceries. They were quietly complaining about it at a restaurant.

    The next day at 6am, a truck turned up at their home. A tall man with a cowboy hat had a photo for her to view. It was the cop. He told her in very good English that it’s unacceptable and she’ll never have to worry about him again. She was worried, assuming they killed him. Nearly a year later they were at a police substation and to their amazement, there he was. Working a desk job. They saw each other and the cop averted his eyes to the floor. The Canadian couple said they spend nearly $22K USD in Colima. Cartels protect tourists more than they harm them. Classic story of corruption.

    Remember this is done by Christians in a Christian country – dont even come for a second and say they are different. Why aren’t The western nations making a coalition to invade Mexico and liberate the country and give them democracy? Ohhh they have no oil? Resources? Or are any political / military demographic worth tanking?

  63. Avatar The D Hive says:

    If you come from a place like this, don’t ever run to America and have the nerve to talk down to African Americans in any way, shape, or form. Clean up your own house and then come talk.

  64. Avatar Unknown _ says:

    This is what I fear of for my parents who are trying to work these foreign lands and return to their native land. I would hope they stay here and live within my future home but sadly that may not be the case as they want to go to their previous home.

  69. Avatar Octavio Lopez Sr. says:

    Big big business that started with Ronald Raegan and his “war on drugs”
    Drugs are big business fir America. They allow cartels to prosper (gun sales) then the government sizes the money. The police gets funded to “fight the war” but the solution is very simple: Legalize drugs and use funds to treat addicts instead of jail. …but, where is the money on that?
