    for the very same reasons the wikipedia article sites. Government unable to protect citizens, illicit trade and corruption (want to put a guestimate on the billions from Mexico-US's black market?) Iceland doesn't have that--Mexico does.

      but not Tijuana. I don't go to the tourist spots, more like obscure towns. I'm told "meth has come" to my favorite place, but I don't know that's true. And BCS is probably not a good comparison to the rest of Mexico....I didn't know things had deteriorated that much.

      Anyway, I guess Haiti, as well as some other countries, would make the list...Somalia, for example...

    •  Maybe we need to invade Haiti again..and help (0+ / 0-)

      straighten em out their government one more time...Things been tooo damn quiet in Grenada tooo..

        You do realize I'm critical of a US policy which is already sending weapons to Mexico, yes?
