According to Obama, violence in Mexico is not their fault. It is the fault of the United States. It takes some nerve for a US President to go behind our backs and talk negatively of us!
Even worse is that he tries to blame gun smuggling. Fast and Furious ring a bell to you?
Drug-fueled violence in Mexico is not entirely the fault of the Mexican people, he [Obama] said. Instead, the United States shares the blame because much of the violence is centered around the Americans’ demand for illegal drugs and the fact that guns are smuggled into Mexico from the United States.
