Texas Gov. Rick Perry says he'd send U.S. troops to Mexico
No response yet by Mexican officials, but president Felipe Calderon is on record as saying that it's unnecessary and would be inappropriate for U.S. military personnel to participate directly in the five year old drug war here. Some experts say that to date, that war has cost over 40,000 Mexican lives.
Perry's proposal is sure to generate controversy in the months ahead, on both sides of the border. Mexico, too, will have a presidential election in 2012.
