So Juarez has become the modern day killing fields of Mexico, how sad but if the situation is that bad then people should exercise common sense and stay away from Juarez.

Default Do You think the U.S will get involved to stop the violence in Juarez?

Not to any large extent.

No I do not think we will-we have been able to stop it for a long time and have done nothing.

I always tell my wife, that eventually the U.S, is going to end up sending troops to help curb the violence in Juarez. I know alot of you GUN HO Americans will say, "screw that, let them kill all the mexicans they want over there", which is fine & dandy, thats your opinion, but alot of innocent "people" are also losing their lives. Do you think the US, should sent troops to Juarez to stop the violence, before it spills over to El Paso? Like i mentioned before, this isnt a mexican bash fest, so be nice, and reasonable.


heres the link
Juarez, Mexico: It Ain't Kansas - Newspaper Tree El Paso
Wouldn't this have to be at the request of the Mexican Gov't? Are you suggesting the US send troops without the Mexican Government's consent?

This is one of the things that has always impressed me with El Paso; one of the lowest crime rates in the US, especially for such a big city.

Yep....saw that article in yesterday's paper (Alamogordo Daily News is published 6 days a week, so we get the EPT on Mondays).

I was shocked at the estimate of 900 homicides in Juarez.

I do not want the US involved at all, but I suppose it will be if the violence spills over into EP.

I do not think it necessary, you see in Nuevo Laredo Tamaulipas violence reach even higher levels of the Juarez and federal police and army virtually besieged the city, and now they're in a better position.

Fix the mess takes time, do not expect immediate results, tranquillity will return to Ciudad Juarez. Violence only be explained by criminals are losing the battle.

Besides Mexican citizens will never allow the U.S. military invade us again. Never! That can be assured.

Regards!

I agree with antgar. I think we've been too involved with Mexico as it is, it has not benefitted much by the "interaction" over the past 20 years and neither have we.

The instability brought on by open borders and hundreds of thousands of people packing up and heading out, the broken families and villages. The illusion that a "better life" requires leaving children behind to be raised by whoever was left to leave them and money can be sent back by parents, children need parents in the home, not 3000-4000 miles away.

Lowering of wages, the bringing down of the USA economy for the cheap labor goods, very addicting drugs being brought in by the tons to poison American children and youth.

“Poor Mexico, to be so far away from God
And so close to the United States of America.”
Octavio Paz

AND vice versa.

Isn't it USA's fault that Juarez and Mexico is in such a bad shape?
If we caused it, why should we interfere?
