Posted on 01/25/2006 7:28:47 AM PST by Boston Blackie
A day after as many as 20 armed men in military fatigues crossed the Rio Grande into Texas before being chased back by U.S. authorities, the Mexican government ordered its troops not to come within 2 kilometers of the border.
While the Mexican Foreign Affairs Ministry and Defense Ministry denied their military had a role in providing protection for Monday's marijuana smuggling operation into Hudspeth County, the government said its military wouldn't be permitted in the border zone without authorization.

Thanks Dumpster Diver for pinging me to this thread...and this FRICKIN POST!!!
Nice Catch Boston Blackie!
Yes and what makes me angry is the problems have been there all along and President Bush chose to ignore them and now it is a problem only because the media is choosing to report this incident.
I supported President Bush, voted for him twice and though I am still so greatful that we didn't have a Gore or Kerry presidency- I am very angry with this administration over the border issues.
The Cops in Mexico ARE the drug dealers! No lie, I have heard it at the source.
Yes, it IS a contest, since we have a president who has said "these good folks just come here to work" and that "family values do not stop at the Rio Grande."
As long as Bush is president, it is a contest.
Unfortunately, yes...this IS a regular occurrence...use this link HERE to bring yourself up to speed as to just how badly America has been sold out!
When Homeland Security head Jerkoff Chertoff downplays Armed Incursion/Invasion of America by Mexico's Military in direct operational support for Drug Smugglers and/or Illegal Infiltrator smuggling, and a week later we have this incident...and STILL La Hacienda Blanco will NOT defend America's Borders...
We are in serious Doo-Doo here!
the Mexican government ordered its troops not to come within 2 kilometers of the border.
Patience. Hell. I wanna see some serious action NOW!
It is time for our President to do his job!

1. The act of invading; the act of encroaching upon the rights or possessions of another; encroachment; trespass.
When the Mexican drug cartels took over from the Colombians the first thing they did was use their vast monetary resources and utterly ruthless tactics to compromise almost all civilian, police and military officials all across Northern Mexico (and a good many just on the other side). That money and aggression also allowed them to purchase state-of-the-art communications, vehicles, weaponry and their pick of the best/worst of the Mexican Army's soldiers.
Those former soldiers are called Zetas, often led by men who were trained at our own School of the Americas in high military skills and tactics back in much friendlier times. Now those skills and that superior gear is used against our inadequate border patrol on a regular basis in order to get drugs and humans smuggled into the US interior.
Their scouts learn the Border Patrol's patterns and use commo to coordinate movement - usually so successfully that the BP had no idea they went through until seeing the tracks long after the incursion. Political pressure from the upper leadership has made it plain to the BP on the ground that they don't want to hear about it or see them cited as press report sources.
The US civilians who happen to live in the path of the incursions are either in on it through money or intimidation or powerless while their pleas for help go unanswered by the state and Federal governments that are charged to protect them. Their plight motivated private individuals to form organized groups that patrolled public and private lands (with the owners' permission), reporting the incursions of illegal aliens and the cartels' missions to the Border Patrol. These volunteer groups eventually gave rise to the Minuteman Movement our President likened to vigilantes.
The US House of Representatives passed a very strong package of measures to finally address these ongoing problems. OUR problem is that the Senate, the Administration and the Chamber of Commerce is striving to reduce the enforcement parts of it while adding a guest worker (amnesty) clause before it comes up for final vote next month.
According to Perry, fences serve no purpose, so I have to wonder if a mob of people pulling down the fence that surrounds the Governor's mansion would be labeled a 'silly idea'.
Some creative FReeper made 'Bush Bucks', a simulated monetary bill that had a picture of Bush in a sombrero.
He/she sent it in every RNC donation return envelope received.
Can any helpful FReepers out there post it?

Why was the Mexican military concerned with this particular operation? Did any of our people have a radiation detector? Sounds bigger than MJ to me - sounds like WMD!
