Discouraging Point of View about Mexico as a "Failing State"
But I think he makes a lot of sense.

Here's comment that was published on this article, made by me: "There's no doubt that Mexico has a lot of problems, but before using a phrase like 'failed state', look closer to home. Mexico isn't running up trillion-dollar deficits, and it isn't neglecting infrastructure."

Mexico has challenges, many of them the result of colonization and continuing economic disparities.
But Mexico also carries a heavy, unavoidable burden. “Mexico, so far from God, so close to the United States” as described long ago by then President Porfirio Diaz.
The guns and ammunition used in these terrible Mormon killings were all imported illegally from the USA.
“Failing states” involve more than only Mexico.

I read this column a couple of days ago, and I think it makes some good points. But the author loses me when he says we should "blame a combination of managerial incompetence and ideological inanity from Donald Trump and his Mexican counterpart, Andrés Manuel López Obrador." That's ridiculous. I am no fan of either president -- in my view you could call them Dumb (AMLO) and Dumber (Trump) -- but blaming them alone for Mexico's problems is absurd. They've arguably made things worse, but this shit started a long time ago.

To clarify, I don't care much who calls who what, but if anything the thought of someone from the US calling Mexico a failed state is quite the laughable matter. At least the Mexicans who choose to murder have the decency to do so for the money. In the US they simply do it for fun.
