    Throughout the history of the world nations have conquered other nations in order to protect vital resources and to obtain resources otherwise unavailable. It's high time we consider conquering Mexico, not just conquer but take total control.

    It's just business, (gun manufacturers need to make money - keeps Americans employed) here's a quote from the article:

    In fact, many of these weapons are getting to Mexico via the U.S. government. Tens of thousands of firearms and explosives are sold legally through the U.S. State Department to the Mexican government. These weapons are then funneled to the traffickers and cartels by corrupt officials within the Mexico Ministry of Defense and local and state police departments.
    According to State Department documents, in 2009 Mexico bought nearly $177 million worth of American-made weapons, exceeding sales to Iraq and Afghanistan. That number includes $20 million in semi- and fully automatic weapons.
    "Most of the M16s were sold legally to the Mexican government and disappeared," Kartchner added.
    State Department cables obtained by WikiLeaks confirm that fear. One cable from November 2009 reads, "U.S. law enforcement has fair reason to worry a number of weapons simply disappear... "
    Another from June 2009 says, "Rogue elements of the Guatemalan military are selling weapons to narcos."
    “These are weapons that have been stockpiled either through U.S. aid programs or currently being shipped there under the guise of military support," said a confidential informant in Arizona who has worked for federal agencies such as the FBI, ATF and DEA.
    "The governments and military in those countries realize that the economy is such that they are far better off to push these weapons north and sell them than they are to keep them in their own arsenals and reserves," he said.

    You mean you are still upset about this even after Hillary apologized to the Mexican President for all the guns coming out of the US and going to the dopers? What is the world coming to?

    ABOUT TIME SOMEONE IN THIS COUNTRY WOKE THE HELL UP AND STARTED GOING AFTER THESE GOVERNMENTS THAT ARE COMPLICIT BY THEIR LACK OF ACTION IN THE NARCO ATTACK AND ILLEGAL MIGRATION PROBLEMS FACING THE UNITED STATES.
