At least 20 bodies found in western Mexico

Authorities found more than 20 bodies inside three abandoned vehicles in Guadalajara, Mexico, Thursday, state media reported.

The vehicles were discovered near a monument on one of the city's main avenues, the state-run Notimex news agency said, citing police sources.

Officials did not release the exact number of bodies found Thursday morning.

Jalisco state Attorney General Tomas Coronado Olmos told CNN affiliate TV Azteca that a message was found with the bodies, but he did not disclose what it said.

    Sometime today they nuked the duplicate post, I see. Along with the thread about trying to convince Canada and Mexico to take over the continent. Maybe they thought I was serious.

    James K. Polk once said the MEXICAN is incapable of living or forming a democratic nation, and that's why we attacked them and won the U.S.- Mexican War. I think Polk was right.

    So all of your efforts with the shopping carts and the propane tanks were for naught?

    @bigstu, I think any impoverished nation will have difficulty with democracy. As the Mexican economy improves, so will its government. They just need to keep the framework in place.

    @banasy, well we can always invent some sort of race or something.

    Did they do a head count this time? If we could cross the boarder with our military for 1 yr we could end the drug war . But to many people would protest that one to. Its the cartels that run everything across the boarder. But we have our own terrorism here in the u.s. Its called politics, and financial fraud.

    If you support Prohibition you support murder and mayhem!

    Colombia, Peru, Mexico or Afghanistan with their coca leaves, marijuana buds or poppy sap are not igniting temptation in the minds of our weak, innocent citizens. These countries are duly responding to the enormous demand that comes from within our own borders. Invading or destroying these countries thus creating more hate, violence, instability, injustice and corruption, will not fix our problem. We need to collectively admit that we are sick. - Prohibition is neither a sane nor a safe approach; left unabated, its puritanical flames will surely engulf every last one of us!

    The illegal drug trade is now estimated to be somewhere in the region of $400 billion a year ( equal to the defense budget ). Our "former land of the free" arrests 1.5 million citizens a year for drug law violations, half for marijuana alone, The majority of the 2.2 million inmates in the USA are incarcerated because of this insane drug war (Prohibition 2) at a staggering cost to all taxpayers and trauma to their families.

    Maybe you're a police officer, a prison guard or a local politician. Possibly you're scared of losing employment, overtime-pay, the many kick-backs and those regular fat bribes. But what good will any of that do you once our society has followed Mexico over the dystopian abyss of dismembered bodies, vats of acid and marauding thugs carrying gold-plated AK-47s with leopard-skinned gunstocks?

    Kindly allow us to forgo the next level of your sycophantic prohibition-engendered mayhem.

    What about all the areas of our country where the standard of living is govt aid, where the american society has been utterly destroyed and unrecognizable. We once had the greatest nation on earth, now in so many places all we have is "the streets" depressed mehican varios or barrios as they are so proud to say. My once quiet street is now a mexexpressway . The clovis were here long before any mehicans or indians ever existed and they were WHITE. I say deport them all every single one of them, if theyve married americans send them along. Its time to go home and fix their rathole country and stop sucking us dry and preying on innocent americans!
