Charles Bowden tells it like it is

Remember NAFTA?

Bill Clinton told us it would create a paradise in the US and in Mexico.

Instead it created as predicted by Ross Perot "a giant sucking sound."

Part of that sound was the flight of manufacturing jobs to Mexico.

Now that those jobs have moved to China, drugs are permeating Mexican society to fill the void.

All this mayhem is taking place right on our borders. We created it and we'll almost certainly pay for it eventually.
