Don't Go To Mexico

Read about the horrible attack on Canadian tourist Jeff Toews while on vacation in Mexico. Remember that many Americans have suffered the same fate. Remember that Mexico is hardly a good neighbor when it comes to solving or reporting these crimes. Let's join our Canadian cousins in their embargo on travel to Mexico.

And don't forget that whole Dog the Bounty Hunter thing. We're bending over like biyotches to get rid of him, and yet we don't require Mexico to keep their treaties.

We should have taken over the whole darn thing back in the 1840's... and Central America too.

Mexico has ridden in the 'cat-bird seat' for way too long as our under-achieving neighbor. From the 1840's (as you so clearly cited, Kevin), to Pancho Villa's attack on a US town (Back then we sent "Black Jack" Pershing), to the Zimmerman Telegram, the Soviet Embassy outlet, to the slaying of US law enforcement officials to the present day denial of extradition.
If you think about it, they hold us hostage to our own values.
Your reference to "Dawg" is a bit of a 'tickle'. Maybe he should try to get sancuary in a Mexican church.
Interesting, isn't it. The Canadian forum can discuss this with outrage, whereas we'd witness street demonstrations (made up of "Unohoo" if we cited the violation of a US Citizen.
The US Government would most likely make our victimized citizen the culprit.
Wouldn't it be something if Canada wanted transit papers to cross the United States for their military to take punitive action against a criminal state. We'd most likely strengthen our northern borders.
