THINGS ARE HEATING UP IN OAXACA, and it doesn’t look pretty.

UPDATE: Drew Kelley emails:

If Iraq is a “civil war”, and it is a multi-party dispute over who is going to run things; what in the hell is Mexico, where you actually have a second “government” (I think we could have a real good debate as to whether or not Mexico has a first “government”) proclaimed as the legitimate voice of the people, and there is various degrees of anarchy in the streets of major cities throughout the country? Just who does run Laredo? Juarez? Chiapas? What constitutes a civil war in Mexico?

Mexico isn’t like Iraq, but it’s in worse shape than most Americans realize.
