Yes, los federales have been waging a civil war against drug lords in Mexico since 2006, which has cost the lives of nearly 30,000 people so far, dwarfing Iraq and Afghanistan as far as casualties.

Also, within the last week, the U.S. moved its personnel out of its embassy or consulate in Monterrey, Mexico, because we can no longer guarantee their safety there.

We're sailing to Ensenada, Mexico for New Year's Eve, but I'm trying to talk my wife out of going ashore.
