You probably don’t follow the news from Mexico. But we could all do well to pay more attention to what is probably the bloodiest conflict on the planet right now. The Mexican drug war, which includes a half-dozen heavily armed paramilitary cartels and the Government’s forces, has claimed 70000 lives in the last six years.
The latest development is seven dead in a mass killing in the resort town of Cancun on Sunday. Last month saw another mass killing there, this time of six people with more wounded. This is in a quiet part of the country.
Makes you glad to live somewhere else.
