    Jesus H. Christ. When you are ahead of several countires that are engaged in open war you know things are violent. This is why I stick to the comparatively safe Baja region nowadays. Mexico has somehow managed to beat Afghanistan and all of Africa.

    Honestly Mexico does not feel any more dangerous than when I was in a teen in the 90s spending time down there but that could be because at 16 I'd go down there looking for trouble and now I go looking for marlin


    @Rod1 want to defend your homeland?

    Why are racist threads like this allowed?

    We better be discussing how white people caused this.

    It really depends on where you are. Although when I go far past TJ I suggest carrying.

    Great, another reason to hold off on deporting DACA folks. They are here illegally but sending them back to a warzone is not so nice. Lol

    Game isnt fair, we never had a large slave population that we treated like animals and then packed in slums in order to boost our crime stats.

    Insatiable drug habit? nah.

    More like American Puritanism hypocrisy + sunk cost fallacy.

    People like to get high + making drug smuggling a more serious crime than smuggling weapons = shitshow.

    You can't be suggesting the descendants of African slaves are predisposed to crime are you Rod1?

    Not going to defend the country, but most of the murders are directly associated with the drug trade so regular people may not feel it in large swaths of the the country.

    Mexico is a weird country.

    As I've said on here before, the city that I live in is statistically way more dangerous than Mexico as a country.

    So, have at visiting Rod1.

    I reality I like poking fun at Mexico but at least where I go it is perfectly safe. And I really have no reason to go to Central Mexico.

    Yeah, thats why i said its a weird country.

    Mexico is still one of the top 10 tourism countries.

    So its simply a matter of not doing dumb shit like backpacking into a drug growing region or something like that.

    There you go, blaming everyone but your own Afghanistan wannabe country.
    A lot of us would like to build better borders and improve border control to keep that shit out.

    I read one article that said there is basically a gentleman's agreement between the Cartels and the Mexican government. As long as the drugs-related violence stays at an acceptable level, the government won't crack down too hard. But if the Cartels start killing tourists, the Army etc will bring the pain. Tourism is just too financially important to Mexico.

    American demand for drugs certainly has a role in the Mexican violence, wouldn't you agree?

    I think it is more what region the violence is concentrated. Guerro is basically Mexico';s Chicago. You go there it is a true war zone.
