U.S. Consulate in Northern Mexico attacked with guns and grenade

The motive for last week’s attack on the U.S. consulate in Mexico is being investigated but there is still no clear cut reason for the unprovoked attack.

The attack had more in common with what we have come to expect in Iraq than from just below the Southern States of the U.S. News of the attack is making me think more about the article I read in one of the Gulf papers here in the Middle East a couple of days ago.

The article read; “Mexican workers leave the U.S. disllusioned with the American Dream”. The story, like so many others these days, focused on the worsening U.S. economy. That made me think; could a returning mexican worker have launched the attack on the embassy due to his frustration at not being able to do as well as he had expected North of the border?

I hope for Mexcio’s sake this is not the case. Mexico’s dangerous crime rate is already a concern for many people deciding where to go to spend their holiday dollars.

In this current economic climate, visitors need to be encouraged and given a reason to spend their hard earned money in your country, not made to feel like targets.
