Mexico may collapse on it's own

AP Story: "Police enraged by the kidnapping of six officers club unarmed detainees. A bloody battle between steelworkers and police leaves two miners dead. Drug lords post the heads of decapitated police on a fence to show who's in charge.

Less than two months before Mexicans elect their next president, many fear the country is teetering on the edge of chaos - a perception that could hurt the ruling National Action Party's chances of keeping the presidency and benefit Mexico's once-powerful Institutional Revolutionary Party, whose candidate has been trailing badly.

Some blame President Vicente Fox for a weak government. Others say rivals are instigating the violence to create that impression, hoping to hurt National Action candidate Felipe Calderon, who has a slight lead in recent polls.

A poll published Friday in Excelsior newspaper found 50 percent of respondents feared the government was on the brink of losing control."

No wonder they're coming over the border illegally. The government has no control, the police have no respect for the laws, and if they do, the drugs lords make sure they don't last long. The labor unions take to the streets, and go to war with whoever is standing against them, much like the illegals in LA and Dallas, minus the crowbars and copbeating.
Anyways, Mexico appears to be nearing anarchy, which I'm not sure if thats a good or bad thing.
At least if there wasn't a government, they couldn't sue us.
