Post it I shall, my friend! :D

Quid Hilaria DIxerit

Mexicopolis--Cum eodem die secretaria rei publicae C.F.A. Hilaria Clinton in Mexico erat, tertius praefectus mexicanus eodem mense ab sicariis interfectus est.Dixit Clinton Mexicum ob violentiam magnam simile Colombiae abhinc 20 annos esse. Indicat usum ab syndicatis Mexicanis pyrobolorum ad autocineta delenda uti index rebellionis possibilis.

Cum res Mexicana hanc necem celere condemnaret, quae in oppido nomine "El Naranjo" facta est, reiecit tamen comparationem cum Colombia. Aiunt syndicatum (anglice Cartel) Colombianum nomine "Medellin" bellum palam contra rem Colombiae gessisse. Ut consilium possibile, suasit Clinton milites Americanos in terra Mexici ponere ut violentiam conpesceret.

Responderunt celere Mexicani: eis, qui passi sunt saltem tres invasiones Americanae, ponere milites Americanos alienosque in patria non patiendum est.

Gratias vobis ago, amice amicae!

I'd change the first paragraph around a little:

Eodem die cum secretaria rei publicae C. F. A. Hilaria Clinton in Mexico erat, tertius praefectus Mexicanus uno mense ab sicariis interfectus est. Dixit Clinton Mexicum ob violentiam magnam sic esse quomodo Colombia abhinc annos XX fuisset.

I'm too confused by the neologisms to comment on the rest. Do you have the original article, by any chance?
Ex mala malo
bono malo uesci
quam ex bona malo

Thanks for the input, Imber!

I read the article on Yahoo, but I didn't save the link. Went back and couldn't find it. :(
