Mexican presidente Calderon is the buzz today secondary to his speaking out at an anti narcotics forum. At said forum (Thursday) he lashed out against the USA for its lax drug enforcement and for being big time drug consumers. He also continued his false rage against US guns and gun dealers/manufacturers.
The BBC report (link=video feed)shows Calderon working the forum.His points, although not unworthy of sympathy given Mexico’s woes,seem a little misplaced.This is a country that is actively engaged in criminal enterprise.
This is the same guy who wants the USA to aggressively enforce the border so guns don’t get into his country. He is against such enforcement when it comes to keeping his coyotes and nationals out.
I feel for the average Mexican who has never had a government that cared about them. I feel for the low paid cops who want to stay honest but face cartel money and threats daily. I also feel Calderon needs to stop looking northward when he wants to lament about his country’s problems.
