    This whole business makes me sick. Veracruz is included in the latest State Department warning. Would Hillary and Barack ever consider just coming here as ordinary people to see what it is really like in various places? They make me sick at heart.

    The problems with Mexico have increasingly become more emtional. Get the facts from reliable sources. I live in Merida AND have met and spoken with Mexican people who recently left both Veracruz and Monterrey citing considerable violence. They described shootings and neighborhood murders of elderly women held for ransom. Crime occurs everywhere, but it is increasing in Mexico. Refer to Strafor intelligence reports and other sources.

      Stratfor isn’t quite a reliable source, seeing they can’t protect their own source files from hacking, and have gone off the deep end on more than one occasion (the Falcon Lake disappearance for starters). And, I live in Sinaloa, and do have very good intelligence sources. Not that the so-called “drug war” is all that interesting, nor historically important, to a writer on cultural history.

    Stratfor is run by an idiot who predicted – in 1992 – that the USA would soon be at war with Japan. Ummmm…. yeah. Not a reassuring history aside from being wayyyyy off base.

    So, besides writing scary things for government contracts, which end up justifying more armaments, ammunition and aggression, they’re basically just scaredy cats. Their “knowledge” would be scapegoating and stereotyping in most arenas outside “security.”
