Ciudad Juarez,Fastest Growing War Cities In The World

Ciudad Juárez is one of the fastest growing cities in the world, in spite of the fact that it is “the most violent zone in the world outside of declared war zones.6,600 people were killed last year in this city, and this year started even more badly with already 555 killed. The numbers are getting higher, last year by March there was 490 killed and this year s even bigger rate of killings. The question is: is somebody doing something? This drug war is taking the lives of the innocent people too. The city is a site of widespread poverty and violence, including an infamous series of unsolved murders of female factory workers. It seams like somebody is making some serious money out there, and that everything can be tolerated with the right price. With this numbers you see, and with the numbers getting higher does it seam strange to you that the population is increasing? It makes me wonder who would willingly go there to live. Well, it’s not like you have to be a rocket scientist and put two and two together. When it comes up to money this is the fastest way to earn some and also the fastest way to get killed. This opens up another subject, the poverty in which these people are living. Living on the border (for those who don’t know, this city is located on the Mexican border with US) is never the easiest one, specially on the border with one of economically richest countries in the world. This is not the excuse, of course, but when your neighbor is exploiting you, well, it is even harder. I don’t say that now America should just go there and give those people money, but if you are already having your factories there, than give those people decent wages, or even better keep your companies in your country and help to your unemployed people…give them salaries and a chance to earn!
