I like Mexico and feel very badly for the people who are being badly abused by the narco's. There have been large problems in Mexican society for many years. 85% of the wealth is held by 15% of the population.

Building up a stable middle class and having justice on the streets is the way to eradicate the trafficking. You can't impose a system from the top unless you are willing to be more ruthless than the narco's themselves.
