1st of all, I did not answer the heart of your question before.

YES, an American company could pay real wages in Mexico, and succeed. Of Course, the company would have to wait a long time, before OTHER companies began to pay the same wages. It takes a while to grow a middle class IMO.

On the Middle East:

Personally, I can see both sides of it. I think each side has a legit beef. No matter WHAT side one is for, I agree about bombing in public places, and civilians. That is ludicrous. Frankly, I think those are done NOT by people with an agenda, but lunatics who just want an excuse to kill. Alot of these folks are taught at birth, that they will go to heaven for killing the enemy. Lets say, Palestine GOT 100% of what they want, do you think for one minute the violence will stop? NO, it only takes one lunatic, and they are breeding tons of them. The age 14-24 male bracket, is going to grow at record levels in years to come in that region.

Frankly, Im sick of it. Im sick of both the sides. Im sick of us being dragged into it. There 2 idiots have fought since the beginning of time, and NO ONE will stop it.

This sounds cruel and heartless, and does not reflect my view of the general public in either country, but rather to the gov't of each side. I feel NO sadness if they go to war. I jope it is a long drawn out war, with heavy military casualties. Frankly, I think it would be good for the world. Just like the Iran-Iraq war, ask yourself the hard question, when BOTH those armies suffered casualties, DID the world gain, or loose?....We lost millions of lunatics. So be it.

I never believed in things like "Armageddon" before. I always scoffed at it. But now, when I see waht is happening in the Middle East, and I see how the world is reacting, I feel they are going 100% by the script.
