I'd caught this earlier

But now I've found a blog that has the transcript - Mexican President Caleron blames America for Mexico's drug cartels.

"The origin of our violence problem begins with the fact that Mexico is located next to the country that has the highest levels of drug consumption in the world," Calderón wrote. "It is as if our neighbor were the biggest drug addict in the world."

Right.  The reason that corrupt, third-world shithole of a country has violent drug cartels in control of the upper half of it's territory is because of America.  Gotcha.  It has nothing to do with the corruption that is legendary.  It has nothing to do with weak leadership.  It has nothing to do with decades upon decades of economic failure.  It's all someone else's fault.

Right now, my only response is "Fuck Mexico".  At this point, I say we invade, annex the shit out of them, and turn them into step one of Pax Americana.  I'm actually serious at this point.  They all want to come up here anyways, let's just accelerate the process.  And send in a few BCTs as point, with ROE to kill any coked up cartel boogyman on the way to Mexico City.  Suddenly, all those Mexicans are now Americans, and the drug cartels have a serious shortage of gunmen.  It's a Win-Win!
