Like most people, I've bee watching a lot of news lately. I tend to watch lots of different stations, even news stations that I don't agree with (no naming names!), but lately I've been shocked at what is going on....why does it take a war in Mexico for us to realize how important it is to understand Latin America? Hey, I know that North Korea probably has nukes. I also realize that there is a war going on in Iraq and Afghanistan. And of course, we are fighting for our lives in the stock market.


BUT, Mexico is right next door, and yet things have gotten so bad there that it is spilling over into our neighborhood. It's been happening for awhile, but it's gotten REALLY out of control lately. So why have we been treating our neighbors like stepchildren we'd like to ignore while we fry bigger fish. I hope it's not too late to act. I hope that we can make some change in policy and some change in attitude when it comes to keeping America safe. Because these people are not just after their own-they are after us too! As Latin America suffers economically (worse than us, I'm afraid) where are they going to go? Up, up and to the USA, of course. We may not be the promised land we once were in some people's views, but we are still an attractive place for people who have nothing to lose. That includes some wonderful, honest people fleeing a bad situation, but also the worst of the worst criminals.


It's time to take a look, a real, honest look at how to stop this...how to reduce the demand for drugs...how to cut drug dealers' income source at the quick....how to secure ourselves from the crazies....and how to develop better relationships with our neighbors so that we can all be protected and yet, maintain our sovereignty. It's going to take some work. But we have to do it. And we have to do it now.
