Re "Buchanan Edges Dole in N.H., Reshaping Republican Race," Feb. 21: The establishment doesn't understand why Pat Buchanan is breaking out of the pack. Very simple. He is telling them the truth: the truth about jobs, the economy, the not-so-free NAFTA trade scams, transnational companies, illegal immigrants, the United Nations, Mexico City-Wall Street bailout, the many things affecting Main Street Americans and the future of our country. The establishment can be expected to counterattack.

The first U.N. conference to curb the $1 billion-a-year illegal trafficking in small arms ended Saturday with 189 nations agreeing on a watered-down plan Washington wanted--with calls to limit weapon sales and restrict civilian gun ownership expunged. But the resolution left many Africans, Europeans and human rights groups angry, protesting that it will neither block governments from arming rebels nor control gun ownership anywhere.

AN OLD JOKE IN MEXICO held that the United Nations ranked Mexico the fifth-most corrupt nation on Earth only because the Mexican government had paid a bribe not to top the list. Corruption is an insidious societal cancer that saps development and spreads poverty. It's also a bit like bad driving, in that everybody thinks the worst offenders are their own countrymen. Actually, there is a way of quantifying such things.

The conflict surfaced again over the weekend when Elliot Abrams, assistant secretary of state for inter-American affairs, criticized Mexico's position in the Contadora Group's efforts to design a peace treaty for Central America.

The Mexican government Wednesday protested as interventionist slander the charges of a U.S. official who accused Mexican politicians of drug-related corruption. The Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying that testimony Tuesday by Customs Commissioner William von Raab before a U.S. Senate subcommittee was "clearly defamatory in nature." A formal note of protest is expected to be delivered to the State Department.

Relatives of people who died or disappeared during the 1971 Corpus Christi massacre are hoping that the Mexican Supreme Court reverses a judge's decision refusing to sign an arrest warrant for former President Luis Echeverria. Such a reversal will depend on the high court agreeing that genocide is a legitimate charge against Echeverria. Lower court Judge Julio Cesar Flores on Saturday rejected the arrest request for Echeverria and 11 others linked to the June 10, 1971, massacre.

Ending a weeklong diplomatic stalemate, Mexican government officials reversed themselves Wednesday and agreed to accept and repatriate 658 Chinese immigrants being held at sea by the U.S. Coast Guard off the Baja California coast. The decision to allow three smuggling vessels to dock is a humanitarian gesture in response to grave conditions aboard the crowded, dirty ships, a top Mexican diplomat said at a midday news conference in Mexico City.

Can a billion Chinese be wooed? Like their counterparts around the world, Mexican hoteliers, resort owners and restaurateurs are salivating over the numbers of newly affluent Chinese expected to travel abroad in coming years. As disposable incomes rise with a fast-expanding economy, Chinese tourists will be spreading billions of dollars across the globe as they venture beyond their once-insular country.

Devising a kinder, gentler brand of globalization tops the agenda for a weeklong U.N. forum on development opening today in the northeastern city of Monterrey, where more than 50 world leaders will try to promote a "fully inclusive and equitable global economic system." The meeting's host, Mexican President Vicente Fox, and President Bush will hold their own summit Friday at which Fox plans to press for immigration reform, border aid and other concessions.
