The Next Panama Canal.

Ronald Reagan used opposition to the Panama Canal treaty as a rallying cry in his 1976 presidential primary campaign against President Gerald Ford. Texas Governor Rick Perry seems to think that calling for US Special Forces operations against the Mexican drug cartels will likewise light a fuse under his 2012 presidential campaign. He might be right.

There's no denying that what is happening in Mexico represents a significant national security risk to the United States.
