What's Spanish for "Chutzpah"?

Jose Luis Santiago Vasconcelos assumes the role of AlGore and blames it all on the USA:

Mexico's top organized crime prosecutor has called on U.S. officials to do more to halt illegal weapons trafficking to help Mexico stem a wave of bloody, drug-fueled violence.

"We know that there is a large amount of arms traffic ... in the United States, that they have to bring under control," Santiago Vasconcelos said. "There's this incredibly big black market that has to be controlled."

"The last time we spoke with (U.S. officials), we told them ... 'If these types of weapons weren't flowing through, they'd have to use stones to attack each other,' " he said.

He said Mexico also is troubled by increasing amounts of cocaine as well as small-scale heroin shipments arriving from Venezuelan airports.

See, it's the US' fault that Mexican "hit men" shoot people, because the "hit men" get their guns in the USA.

And all that corruption in Mexico?? Vasconcelos will get around to THAT chapter of Fairy Tales next week, I suppose.
