    Mexicans, except the drug lords aren't trying to kill us precisely because we aren't killing them. We haven't set up a free kill zone inside Mexico. We don't control their diet. We don't bomb them weekly. As for Cuba, we limit US trade with them so the Canadians sell more. We blockaded them for less than a month when they had nukes aimed at us and we had nukes in Turkey aimed at the Russians. The whole world, including Israel can trade with Cuba, just not US companies and individuals. Cuba even shares oil resources with the US. We and they have common offshore territories. They chose to extract oil. Florida chose not to. So Cuba has oil revenues. Florida does not. The US hasn't killed any Cubans in Cuba for Decades, since the 60s. And Cuba doesn't shoot rockets at us. We did have a dust-up in Grenada during the Reagan administration while we and Israel were selling arms to Iran.
