Well said, Mr. Calderon

"I think the main thing we have in common with Colombia is that both of our countries suffer from U.S. drug consumption," Calderon said in response to Hillary Clinton's comments comparing Mexico to Colombia 20 years ago. "We are both victims of the enormous American consumption of drugs, and now the sales of weapons."

  1. Totally agree with Calderon. U.S. consumption of drugs, its hypocritical war on drugs and even worse (and more hypocritical), its sale of weapons to the people killing the poor cops trying enforce unenforceable laws, all argue for legalization of all/all drugs. It didn't work with prohibiition and it sure as hell isn't working with drugs...

  2. Completely true, unfortunately in the us is really easy to get anything, from pot, pills, meth, etc, etc, etc. Anybody knows somebody that will be able to deliver whatever the customer is looking for within a couple of miles, so its endemic sadly everybody looks the other way

  3. Para nuestra desfortuna cabe pensar que la guerra contra el narco de Felipe Calderon no esta ayudando a Mexico solo esta ayudando a EUA en evitar que los hechos de violencia se queden al sur de la frontera, los EUA deberian repensar bien las estrategias de pelea contra el narco puesto que como yo existen muchos otros mexicanos que queremos un Mexico libre y en paz y si para lograr esto debemos permitir el libre transito de drogas por el pais entonces los EUA se van a convertir en un pais de drogadictos o en un pais en guerra dentro de su territorio, por favor es necesario que cambien la idea de que el problemas de las drogas es solo un problema de salud en su pais ya que estan a un pelo de que se convierta en un problema de seguridad nacional

  4. Well said Mr. Calderon? I've heard interviews in which Calderon blames EVERYTHING on the USA, according to Calderon just about every other problem in Mexico is responsibility of the US, and he claims unless the USA doesn't support him Mexico is doomed! what type of a leader is he? excuse me but that guy deserves no respect from millions! he does not seem to have what it takes to lead a country...I would suggest he takes some responsibility for his own mistakes and makes courageous decisions not
