So, you're telling these engineers weren't kidnapped? They are working somewhere to be well paid. I would say everything is possible! schengen travel insurance

Having lived there for 5+ years, naively believing all that was missing was a shot at a practical education.... I just 'went out to get a paper', and walked away from everything... My 'willing students' we're blood related to the Sinola chief. They we're using my condo on the water as a safe house...

Legalizing would definitely take most of the profit out of these operations and should help stem the violence. this is assuming no corruption in the government. And,instead of playing around with these people, they need to execute the leaders, and not let them live 15 years in prison going through the process.

Can these bright people emit a signal to make it easy for the bright engineers working for the US government to track their kidnappers?

We might also want to legalize and regulate enslaving engineers.

There's a point. Legalize and regulate drugs, so that everything is under control, and the drug cartels lose their business. But with their resources already, the cartels would easily become like domestic terrorists, would they not? How strong and corruption-free is the government?

Yikes! That's a scary trend. My question is: "What would Gus do?" ("Breaking Bad" fans please weigh in)...

I agree, legalize drugs, require perscriptions, and use tax revenue to treat addicts...just like we do with oxycotin. BUT street heroin is now cheaper than oxycotin. So some underground drug traffic will always exist for economic reasons. But it would be a start.
