"... little is known about the exact network of pirates who are believed to have been born out of local fisherman circles. Even corrupt government workers themselves have aided some of the piracy, experts have asserted."

tourists also targeted

considering how much $ Mexico gets from oil and tourism this stuff must hurt them.
really a corrupt mess down there

If these things are not opposed aggressively and decisively they will probably grow, and I don't see the corrupt Mexican government or our own PC government doing that.

What they do on water they do on land too. And this is what's flooding into our country across our southern border.

And think about this: the same government that feigns impotence at stopping this is anything but impotent at disarming the good guys so they can't protect themselves. You won't catch me anywhere close to Mexico. It's just too bad Mexico is moving up here, and our PC government isn't stopping it.

You couldn't pay me to go to Mexico.

My Dad bought tickets, 10 years ago, to a family reunion cruise for everyone. They did a pretty good job (cruise ship) with the wheelchair. At any rate the rest of the family was very upset they didn't get the day in Mexico, but they had closed the port due to swine flu. I was so happy about it but feigned a sullen attitude.

I did several mission trips to border towns in my teens and it was a miserable hellhole, I doubt it has improved.

Possibly the Drug Mafia expanding their power and taking over the oil rigs? They already are deep into the military, government, transportation, food service and even churches!

Smartest thing we ever did was give them their country back after the Mexican-American War.

The cartels have a LOT of money. The government doesn't. Their cops are not paid well so it's easy to dangle some money in front of them and the threat of the cartels killing off their entire family in a very vicious way makes many of them afraid enough to take the money and turn a blind eye. Same with many politicians.

Loosely translated "plata o bala" is allegedly a common phrase south of the border. Not a Spanish speaking person, so that may be a rather poor translation of the phrase or it may be slang. I don't know for sure but have seen it mentioned many times.

Take Silver or Lead (pay or Bullet), that's the choice they give down there, most take the money some don't and pay the price. Families have been killed/beaten if the husband (Cop) doesn't comply, most people comply especially when you start seeing people hanging from overpasses disemboweled.
