Mexico News

Steven asks…

Will the US government extradite the people involved in operation fast and furious to Mexico?

I have heard a rumor on the news that Mexico was going to make the request.
What if one of the people in question is Eric Holder Obama’s AG?

Tijuana answers:

If Mexico makes the request, the U.S. Will have to honor the extradition treaty they have with Mexico, and send them there.

Sandy asks…

What caused the explosion on the oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico?

Has anyone seen any information on the root cause of the explosion on the oil rig that sank in the Gulf of Mexico last week? I’ve not heard a lot of talk about it; only a mention that it did explode.

Tijuana answers:

Here is a part of an article on this matter. It is copied from Fox News. I would like to see a full investigation into the cause of this disaster. If this was the result of a terrorist act then we deserve to know. If it was due to a mistake made by the crew, again we deserve to know. A lot of questions need to be asked and answered, but to just say to stop all offshore drilling, is a mistake.
The copied text from Fox News now follows:

Danenberger said it appears “to be the consensus” among drilling experts that a poor cementing job probably led to the blowout — when oil and natural gas exit a well with extreme force.

“They’re going to be focusing on the root cause, how the oil and gas were able to enter the [well] that should’ve been secured,” he said. “That will be the primary focus, how the influx got in to the [well].”

Cementing operations could benefit from additional inspection standards, Danenberger said, adding that cementing incidents remain too common.

According to a 2007 study by three U.S. Minerals Management Service officials, cementing was a factor in 18 of 39 well blowouts in the Gulf during a 14-year period, making it the single largest factor, the Wall Street Journal reported. Equipment failure and pipe failure were the next leading factors.

“There has been a history of gas influxes during cementing operations, so that is an area of concern, but nothing is confirmed,” Danenberger said. “But perhaps additional standards are necessary for cementing operations.”

Daniel asks…

What are good books about the drug war in Mexico?

I see a lot of stuff on television and the news about Mexico and the drug war. I’d like to read more about it, something real and gritty.

El Narco from Ioan Grillo is very good.
