My friend and neighbor, Mario Becerril, takes offense at the US Pentagon’s accusations putting Mexico in the same boat with Pakistan. See previous blog entry: More Unsettling Press for Mexico
For another, and perhaps more rational and informed point of view, Mario recommends the following link:
As I did note in my original post, I don’t know what the truth is. I certainly can believe that the US Pentagon is capable of great errors in assessing other countries. I do not take their comments as the gospel truth. Where I live in Baja California Sur, there is no imminent sign or public fear of national collapse. Life is very very good here even if business and tourism are slowing down and the peso is losing value vs. the US dollar.
One thing I do know for certain – I am very glad not to live on the US – Mexican border.
