The Occupy Wall Street was a great social movement. People have to change interest in political and economic aspects in their country.

The Occupy Wall Street was a demonstration that succeeded in uniting million Americans and other groups from different countries.

I think that social movements in recent years have gained power, because people have lost their fear to express what he really feels.

People have shown interest in political and economic issues of the country in order to help improve aspects that political leaders are driving the wrong way is often by corruption. The media and social networks are part of social movements.

Today social networks are the most used by people, providing people with information about what is happening in the world. It’s unfortunate that most of the occasions the media only show people little information.

Some political leaders and empersas people simply because important information is information that could cause problems.

I think USA does influence decisions to Mexico primarily by history between the two countries.

USA manages to influence political, economic security and migration.

United States of America has many people of Mexico, this country can promote the rights of these people.

Mexico U.S. influence in the economy by the dependence of the Mexican government to the United States.

And the issue of security is important, the serious crisis of violence that exists in Mexico.

The Obama administration has proposed, for example is the operation Fast and Furious.

I think it’s important for people to become involved in political and social issues in his country. It is important that people stay informed in order to obtain better results in their country.

I’m actually interested to hear about your class’ opinions regarding the Fast & Furious scandal. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives lost track of weapons that they were trying to track in hopes that they would catch Mexican cartel members that were buying them. However, they lost control of where the weapons went, and evidence now connects the US weapons with terrible violence and brutal deaths that have happened in Mexico (including the Juarez birthday party massacre, which was in American newspapers for days).

What are your opinions regarding the United States’ attempts to stop cartel violence, especially since one of our botched operations contributed to many Mexican deaths?

First of all I want to apologize because I feel like I go out a bit of the issue that had been raised to argue, but I found it interesting the comment made and I would like to know the opinion that you have regarding the problems generated because of the war on drugs.
As for the efficiency in the case of the war on drugs, from my perspective, I think the two governments have failed in generating concrete results, but there is no doubt that Mexico has been most affected by these failures, which has generated a short time until now, the idea that there is not an appropriate strategy, since the current has generated only violence, so the question arises of whether it was a mistake to turn what should be a health problem into a safety issue.
All this makes us rethink what were the objectives that have been searched, which in most cases are ambiguous by the simplicity with which they are handled, we have to take a look back at the drug war from their beginning during the Nixon administration, and asks ourselves if these were the expected results.
Personally I have a doubt whether the United States has taken this issue seriously or has served only as a discourse in pursuit of other political objectives, if planted real strategies to reduce consumption, or if the federal government raised seek a different strategy, and if so, as seems to be the case in Colorado and Washington which would be the strategy to address the different consequences of this new strategy involves, and how this can drastically change the landscape in the broker understood from Colombia to the United States.
