(Newser) – Mexican authorities have discovered 19 bodies—some old, some new—near the US border. Eleven of the bodies were found in mass graves, where they appear to have rested for two years, officials say. Those bodies were buried amid intense fighting between drug cartels in the area, near Ciudad Juarez, at the time, the AP reports. Meanwhile, eight recently dead bodies were discovered along a road in northern Mexico. Authorities believe the men were kidnapped Friday before being tortured and shot.

Until the American government gets out of the drug smuggling business, nothing is going to change. This is why they are against the legalization of Marijuana. If Marijuana was legal what would the DEA do, twiddle their thumbs.With out Marijuana there would be no need for drug budget of billions of dollars. Why is it we hear there is more high grade herion and cocaine that is priced cheap on the streets and we never hear of large herion bust. Would it be we would not bust ourselfes. Why is it our government has never been honest with we the people. Where do you thing H.W. Bush and Oliver North got the money for the Iran-Contra scandal. What was the real reason we went after the president of Panamal. Manuel Noreiga wanted more of the cocaine profits for himself.

Mexico = the old Columbia. Do what they did in Columbia; anyone leading, in or associated with a cartel is hunted down and either captured or killed. Anyone HELPING a cartel member or associate is hunted down and captured or killed. Very soon, even the big money from the drug trade pales in comparsion to being constantly hunted down and you never know who will drop the dime on you!
