I did not include Mexico, which has about triple the U.S. rate due in large part to the ongoing drug war.

are you really that daft? Do you not understand the correlation between their position as our illegal transit corridor and the violence there? Its artificially skewed by the public policy of another country.

But what about here, does the gang wars in Chicago not skew things? How is that any different than excluding Mexico, which admittedly has it's drug wars on a much higher scale than our gang wars.

Retard gangwars exist in US, I would guess that at least 50% of all homicides are gangrelated

even putting in Mexico, U.S. still looks bad as one of the few modern developed countries there..

and even with Mexico there.. I think anyone here who is an adult or with some intelligence will not give a worth to Mexico.. drug cartels, crime, poverty, etc.
