Therein lies the "crime". We cannot let fear rule our lives. We just have to be a little more careful and cautious. Chuck...
"The US State Department reassured on Friday that despite previous warnings of Mexico's spiraling murder rates, much of the country remains unscathed by running battles between security forces and rival drug cartels.
In February, the State Department warned travelers of the risk posed by increased violence particularly along the US-Mexico border. But Friday spokesman Gordon Duguid said violent activities are relatively confined.
"We notice that many of the violent activities are localized in several different places. They are not general across the north of Mexico, let alone through ... the entire country," he said.
Violence is "not systematic throughout the country," Duguid added.
so go and HAVE FUN!!!
Think this is the site Tom was talking about....
Interesting to note that on both warnings, Mexico is warned against. Australia has similar advise http://www.smartraveller.gov.au/zw-cgi/ ... ice/Mexico http://www.smartraveller.gov.au/zw-cgi/ ... of_America.
This is a scarry world. Chuck...
Now, considering New Orleans is so dangerous (at a Juarez level), why don't we hear about that in the news too? Why does ALL of Mexico get stigmatized based on what happens on US-Mexico border towns? Could it be best to scare people into staying at home, spending their $'s at home, specially in a recession? Just a thought.
I think Mogens has a point, perhaps the US wants the vacation money spent in their own country. Scare the tourist into staying home. There is violence everywhere, why isn't it reported in New Orleans? well because if people stopped visiting there the city would fold. Same as LA, New York, Atlanta ect ect. The media in this country is a joke, they worry more about what an over paid celebrity is wearing, when they should be concerned about the 500,000 people losing their jobs every month.
