Is there any practical way for either the Americans or the Mexicans to actually make progress wrt this out of control violence. Maybe I am wrong, but I just hear deafening silence from both Capitals. Now, that could be because it is getting cold up here, but I would genuinely like to know. One suggestion on this thread is to decriminalize drugs, don't think that will happen, at least near term. What else? This whole situation seems so tragic for the beautiful country of Mexico.
