John Farnham writes [via ammoland.com]:
Mexico is currently, via TV ads, desperately, almost hopelessly, trying to lure skeptical American tourists. Understandable, since the entire tourist industry south of the border, due to relentless, dramatic, and widespread violence, has all but dried up. Follow that with the U.S. State Department’s Travel Warning and tourism is way down.
Competing drug-gangs are using high-profile, ghastly, tortuous murders as a kind of “terrorism theater” in order to gain status and intimidate rival gangs, along with citizens , and even police.The government’s “fight” against them is mostly in vain.
Mexico’s highways are bearing a close resemblance to those depicted in Mad Max And, Mexico’s immemorial corruption and incompetence, at all levels of government, insures nothing will improve any time soon.
Even well-known tourist areas are blatantly unsafe. Border towns, which used to be regularly frequented by hordes of American tourists, are now virtual ghost-towns. Formally trendy hotels and restaurants are boarded-up and rotting away.
Residents of CA, AZ, TX, and NM who live near our “border” with Mexico had better be preparing for drug-gang violence overflowing into the CONUS (Continental United States). Drug cartels do not recognize international borders.
Why should they?
