Death South Of The Border (Cont.)

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently observed that the spiraling violence in Mexico was similar to the situation in Colombia 20 years ago, when drug cartels controlled parts of the country, and said that drug cartels are looking more and more like insurgencies.  A Mexican official rejected the comparison — but the fact remains that car bombings, the killing of mayors and other government officials, and similar tactics of insurgencies are increasingly frequent occurrences in Mexico.

It is encouraging to hear Administration officials publicly recognize the rampant problems in Mexico.  Having identified the seriousness of the problem, perhaps the federal government will now take more vigorous steps to address the dangers posed to our country by the escalating Mexican violence and our porous southern border.
