Violence in Mexico

Monday, December 1, 2008  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Here’s a story on killings in Mexico near the border:

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico – New details on a deadly discovery across the border from El Paso. This morning police in Ciudad Juarez say at least 12 masked gun men opened fire inside an upscale seafood restaurant and killed at least eight people. The attack comes a day after seven men were found executed in a school soccer field in an upper class neighborhood in Juarez.

In all, 40 murders were reported over the holiday week along the border near El Paso. Police say the men were armed with AK-47 and fired off more than 100 rounds.

Mexico is wracked by this sort of violence, but it makes little impression on the American MSM. Here’s another grisly story. There are 14 murders a day attributed to the government’s assault on the drug cartels, and the Mexican economy is staggering under the exodus of tourism and related trade.

The MSM has got to figure out that while Iraq is moving towards stability, Mexico is moving away from it.
