More Mexican War/Craziness News

Mexico is at war, and the drug violence this month alone has flared all across the country.

More people were killed in Mexico's drug war in 2008 than all the U.S. service members killed in the entire Iraq war. This year, the death rate has more than doubled, and experts say there's no end in sight.

In Cancun, a former army general was abducted, tortured and killed less than a day after becoming the region's top anti-drug officer. And last weekend on the Pacific coast, men hurled grenades at a police station near Acapulco. - NPR

Don't spring break in Cancun.
