On Wednesday, January 11, 2012 Felipe Calderˇn’s failed government released the updated death tolls from Mexico’s ongoing drug war. The Mexican “government” reported that 47,515 people have been killed in drug-related violence between late 2006 and September 2011, with 12,903 killings having occurred in the first 9 nine months of 2011 – an 11% increase over the same 9 month period in 2010.
Those 12,903 killings equate to approximately one drug killing every 30 minutes of every day for the first 9 months of last year.
Most of Mexico’s drug war killings haven place in just eight of Mexico’s 31 states, five of those ones that share a border with the United States. Yet, as long as those deaths are Mexicans and the happen south of the border, Americans won’t care and America will fear to do anything about the chaos and hell raging across the failed state to our south.
Nothing to see here. Move along! We wouldn’t want to upset anyone or force them from their comfort zone.
