They were out of bullets, so technically they weren't armed.

They will let them go on that technicality.

In the old days something this provocative would be considered an act of war.

Mexico's Ambassador would have gotten a serious a$#chewing, and the perps would have been thrown in prison.

Mexicans are sure brazen these in these days of embarrassing American weakness. It wasn’t long ago that incidents like this happened only south of the border.

I’m sure Joe Arpaio has taken notice. ...and is prepared.

Gee. I wonder what the White House will have to say about this?

Maybe we can arrange a prisoner exchange. Trade these invaders to the Mexican authorities if they'll let us release our two border agents from the federal penetentiary.

(If that doesn't make any sense to you, it's not supposed to. Those two shouldn't have been sent to jail they should have received a citation!)

No, it isn't an act of war.

It is a criminal act.

If these criminals were official representatives of the Mexican government, it would be an act of war.

What it does mean is that US government should inform Mexico that if they are unable to prevent their cartels from attacking US law enforcement personnel, then the US military will have to take a more proactive role.

Here’s the best defense for shooting a SWAT (Phoenix Police Tactical Team) Officer that one could ever imagine. If their gear is being stolen and illegals are wearing it you can be damn sure that they won’t be getting the respect they are used to. Scream POLICE at the top of your lungs and the homeowner is going to say that he heard a Hispanic tone to the word, thought that illegals were breaking in and shot at them.

What’s a jury supposed to think?

Just three free-booting Mexican soldiers sent to murder American law enforcement officers.

Should Italy declare war against the USA for a CIA kidnapping on Italian soil?

McCain goes ballistic when asked about amnesty or related topics. Something is mentally off with McCain in addition to him being creepy. Let’s not forget he voted against the Cronyn amendment - one of only ten GOP Senators who opposed barring terrorists and criminals from US.

The CIA kidnapped a Muslim cleric, an Egyptian national, on Italian soil. These apparently rogue Mexican army officers shot up the home of an Arizona law enforcement official and murdered him. When you attack the law enforcement personnel of another country, it’s an attack against that country’s government.

Nowhere in this article nor in any of the previouse threads or articles has this been stated. The home was NOT that of a LEO. ONLY in this blogger's headline does that allegation exist.

Yeah. I think you may be right.

Then we'll have to ask the Mexican government to allow us to let THOSE Americans to not serve terms in OUR prisons.

Here is an update from the Arizona Republic:

“None of the men accused in a deadly west Phoenix home invasion this week is an active member of the Mexican military, according to Phoenix police.

Daniel Garcia-Saenz, 24; Manual Garcia-Trejom, 25; and Rodolfo Madrigal Lopez, 19, were arrested Sunday night in connection with the slaying of Andrew Williams, 30, who was gunned down in his home in the 8300 block of West Cypress Avenue.

The assailants wore body armor, had assault-style rifles and used more than 100 rounds of ammunition.

After the arrests, one of the men - whom police have not identified - told a police officer that he had received some military training, said Sgt. Joel Tranter, a police spokesman.

That statement launched speculation that members of the Mexican army invaded the home.”

You are correct. The victim is not identified as a LEO.

And the perps are not “active” members of the Mexican army.

I jumped the gun on this. I've gotten in the habit of assuming the worst.

No problem.

It took the AZR three days to do this story. I’m suspicious of the denial of military involvement. These invaders were wearing TAC gear and had PhPD POLICE shirts. 1-3 others are still out there...can’t get a right count.

I’m sure the Mexican soldiers were working their second job (for the drug cartels) and that the President and Congress will see this as a good reason to send more money to Mexico.

Personally, I see this as an excellent reason to build Korean DMZ type defenses along the border with Mexico - minefields, stacks of concertina wire, bunkers, military patrols and rapid-response gunships.
