Perry Open to Sending US Troops to Mexico

      MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Rick
 Perry says he is open to sending American troops to Mexico to
battle drug cartels.
      Perry, the Texas governor, likens the situation to Colombia,
where the government accepted American military support in battling
the war on drugs.
      Perry says the current violence may require similar military
action.
      He often calls for more National Guard troops to help protect
the Mexican border and stem the flow of illegal immigration. But
Saturday's comments go further. They indicate he's open to
deepening America's military involvement across the border.
      Perry's comments came at a Saturday afternoon reception at the
home of New Hampshire Republican gubernatorial candidate Ovide
Lamontagne.
      A spokesman later clarified that Perry is open to all options in
cooperation with Mexico.
