MEXICO CITY - President Felipe Calderon yesterday charged that the US government, along with American drug consumers and gun dealers, was partly responsible for the deaths of 52 people killed in an arson attack at a casino in Monterrey.
The economic power and firepower of the criminal organizations operating in Mexico and Latin America come from this endless demand for drugs in the United States, Calderon said. We are neighbors, we are allies, we are friends, but also, you are responsible. That is my message.

What a POS - “You yanques are responsible for what happens in my country - I have no control over it!”
Very well then, Mexico should close the it’s border with us.
It’s obviously the smart thing to do. /s
Here is my message. You are invading my country, you are robbimg, raping and murdering my people. You are sucking our treasury dry. In short, you, your people and your country are my enemies.
...partly responsible for the deaths of 52 people killed in an arson attack at a casino in Monterrey. "The economic power and firepower of the criminal organizations operating in Mexico and Latin America come from this endless demand for drugs in the United States," Calderon said.I agree -- and our response should be to build the border wall. Oh, and to pay some of those Fast and Furious clients to gun down Calderon. It's only neighborly. And it's not as if he's not already a lame duck.
VaRepublican, hope you're not in Irene's way.
No, we are good in Chesterfield. We will get wind and rain but I worry about some friends in Norfolk and Va Beach. sorry for the Jees comment but I’m just so worn out about how this is our fault. The innocents getting killed by ruthless non caring bastards is not OUR fault. There is an attitude that is specifically Mexican to this carnage.
Getting his talking points from Obama? He left out Bush.
Not necessary. I said a lot worse when I read the story.
Mexico must be destroyed
Mexico would be a paradise, like the rest of Latin America, if not for the United States.
It’s too late. They’ve sent their drug customers here as well to maintain the demand.
Somewhere Bambi and Holder are smiling, Hopefully Mr Issa can take those smug grins off there face.
The Obama strategy: Everybody’s fault but mine.
I hearby surrender POTUS to Calderon. Rahter than a long drawn out trial we could cut to the chase and put him up againset the wall! Ready, Aim, golf balls at the alert!
Anyby seriously want to argue this point is not accurate? If there were no demand for illegal drugs there would be no drug cartels. QEV
you are responsible.
Somewhat more debatable. However, if demand for an illegal product in Canada that was produced or transhipped through the USA was causing equivalent level of violence here I doubt anybody would hesitate to say Canada was responsible.
I got an idea ...
How about YOU kill YOUR criminals before they get here.
That way, y'know, like ... we'd turn to Columbia, or Turkey or ... who knows ? Maybe we might not even BE the problem you THINK we are ... kind'a like guneunner ... y'know, Phil baby ?
There is a floor cleaning product that describes this man. Part of the name, anyway.
