Ultimate NIMBY

The Mayor of Juarez, Mexico, has given up on thinking that there is a solution to the problem of violent drug cartels shooting up his town. His goal is now to simply get the fighting to move elsewhere. While on the one hand, this is classic NIMBY, the Mayor's attitude seems to be more one of resigned desperation than the self-serving obstructionism that American NIMBYs are often accused of.
