More Americans abducted along Mexico border than in Iraq
LAREDO, Texas This border area is one of the least publicized international crisis zones. More Americans have been kidnapped just in this area than in all of Iraq by Islamic terrorists.
Twenty-six Americans are now officially listed as missing in the Laredo-Nuevo Laredo region of the U.S.-Mexico borderin addition to the more than 400 Mexicans reported to be suffering a similar fate.
The number of American civilians missing or kidnapped in Iraq since the beginning of the war is 23 as of last September, the latest figure released by the State Department.
And then there are the executions.
Unlike Muslim jihadists, enforcers from the feuding Gulf and Sinaloa Mexican drug cartels favor off-camera basement executions and oil-drum burials.
Ive seen these barrels with bodies stuffed into them, said a U.S. law enforcement official, who, like most here, spoke on condition of anonymity. Its horrible, but it is really happening.
First acid is poured in to break up flesh and bone. Then the drum is filled with diesel fuel.
A matchthats all it takes to turn a life into a heap of ashes.
How many of those unaccounted for have already been processed this way? Nobody here knowsor is eager to find out.
The Mexican government has lost control along the border, fumes Rick Flores, the youthful Webb County sheriff.
They had 176 murders in Nuevo Laredo last year, and none of them have been solved. In the first less than six weeks of this year, there were another 27 murders. Again, none solved. At the rate they are going, the death toll will be over 300 by years end.

Law enforcement officials dont believe the gunmen were the much-publicized Los Zetas, members of a U.S.-trained Mexican special forces unit, who deserted in the 1990s to become enforcers for the Gulf Cartel.
We're still fighting in Iraq.
We surrendered to Mexico.
The Fereral government and big business has surrendered. Not the People.
More from article:
And there have been other new arrivals that officials say worry them even more.
Mexico has long had a thriving Middle Eastern community, but there is word it might now be getting new, possibly less benevolent members.
Weve had source intelligence that there are possible terrorist cells making their way into Mexico, who want to learn the language and culture and camouflage themselves as Mexicans, said another law enforcement official, who requested anonymity.
There have been new arrivals of that kind in Nuevo Laredo as well, and we dont know yet whether their business is legitimate.
Did you mispell feral government? ;)
Hey, they won't stand up to Mexico, but they're getting ready for us. They just rehabilitated Jackboot John Magaw and put him in Homeland Insecurity.
Now, who do you suppose they expect him to burn alive in their homes?
ping, for lack of clean words at this time
My gosh!! When are Americans going to get their heads out of their [bleeps] and realize with a demoncratic president these border problems will disappear faster than you can say "Presto-Chango!"
A puzzling incursion, local officials said, was witnessed in the middle of the night 20 miles south of Laredo about a year ago.
About 20 physically well-trained men, all dressed in black with automatic rifles slung over their shoulders, crossed the Rio Grande and headed into the U.S., carrying oversized duffel bags.
They were intercepted by the Border Patrol further down. But to this day, we dont know what was in these bags, one of the officials said. Whatever the cargo, these men appeared to be ready to pick up a major fight to protect it. And thats very unusual for a drug smuggling operation.
A request for information left with the Border Patrol still remains unanswered.
Does "intercepted" equal "arrested"? Does any gov't agency possess the bags?
Build the wall, dot the landscape south of it with Land mines, use drones, Border patrol personnel & the national guard to patrol it and shoot to kill anything that tries to come across it. NOW!!!!
They also left out that......more Americans have been murdered, raped, etc., IN the U.S. by illegal aliens than in all of Iraq also.
That's about all they'd have to do a few times, including some night time ones, and word would spread like wildfire.
You are in serious need of increasing the dosage of your medication.
LOL! Then YOU will be increasing the dosage of YOUR medication. :-)
I imagine that those along the Iraqi border, are probably in groups and much better armed, than those on the Mexican border.
Los dos Laredos Ping!
Please FReepmail me if you want on or off this South Texas/Mexico ping list.
President Bush has been great on most things except for our border.
He has been great on the war on terrorists.
But on the border he is a gross failure.
He acted fast and correct on the 3,000+ people murdered at the world trade center.
He ignores the many rapes, murders and robberies which might be larger than the murders and money loss at the world trade center.
More people are abducted on the border of Mexico than in Iraq!
Start building the fence.
It should be made a felony for Criminals who overstay their visas and Invaders.
I believe we should give amnesty to these poor CRIMINALS or INVADERS.
This should be a 2 week amnesty to get the heck out of our Country.
The ones who ignore this amnesty should be buried in a tent city jail and fined $10,000 or buried elsewhere.
All aiders and abettors of these CRIMINALS or INVADERS should get 1 year in a tent city jail and a $10,000 fine for each CRIMINAL aided.
Those in government should be the first ones charged.
May these girls rest in peace. Worse, these are Texas Mexican Americans that most likely don't speak a word of spanish. Spanglish is the best they can do, if that.

The one US agent that does this can "prolly" write a book about it after he gets in trouble with Pres. Bush. He can "prolly" come out on the O'Reilly Factor.
It's getting pretty bad here just south of Houston, too. Day workers at freeway intersections drinking beer at 10:00 am and urinating in the esplinades. Lots of illegals milling about on the streets at all times of day or night. It creeps me out. I keep my doors locked and the gun beside me loaded.
This is no longer the city I grew up in.
I live in California. This is no longer the COUNTRY we grew up in.
You are so right.
I can remember a time during the Reagan administration when we saw Border enforcement teams round up bus loads of illegals off of construction job sites and send them back.
We are no longer safe in our own neighborhoods because of illegal immigration. It's time to build the wall, put an armed military on the wall to defend it and shoot to kill anyone or anything trying to cross the border.
Apparently not. Musn't start an international incident.
We should bomb the Mexican terrorist hide outs for any murder of Americans.
It does appear to be a different Texas. Their music is played on FM radio, must mean that 40 Million have invaded the entire USA.
funny... we play hard ball when we do play.
Pure machismo/bravado - they KNOW we can't/won't do anything, so they taunt. I'd love to read that our side said, "Sure, maricones!" and opened up with the .50 cals. Won't happen till something worse happens on the border.
Ahhh, the ignorance of youth.
Dude, its happening every day. Two agents were seriously wounded on the river by sniper fire about two months ago. An agent was ambushed last night in Nogales but managed to escape.
This is a war thats been going on for 90 years. The press is just reporting on it now because they think it hurts the administration. It does.
They have a bounty on cayotes where I live..Perhaps a $2.00 per would eliminate the problem on the border.
Welcome to the North American Community.
All part of the plan.
2010 with either party.
Read it and weep.
"This is a war thats been going on for 90 years. The press is just reporting on it now because they think it hurts the administration. It does."
Notice that you couldn't tell me of 5 or 10 US border agents that were murdered, as it happens in Israel.
You couldn't tell me of 20 border agent that were ambushed --- 10 killed/10 taken captive across the border.
Neither could you tell me of angry and ouraged US border agents that have taken action into their own hands and killed 10 legitimate/semi-legitimate Mexican Federal-ies / Mexican Soldiers.
That is war, my friend.
Until that day comes we won't have MSM attention.
When that day comes the wives, The Widows, of these murdered Border Agents will be on the O'Reilly Factor and Greta Van Susteren will forget about Aruba and Halloway.
The Mountain Lion in LA was bleeding after they tranquilized it.
ONE agent saw 20 heavily armed men in black.
Down the road TWO agents on border patrol in a jeep, saw 20 heavily armed men in black.
"hey, you first. Yell "HANDS UP. YOU'RE UNDER ARREST""
"forget you, crazy coyote."
Thanks, Mr. Bush.
My sister lives south of Victoria and she no longer goes out at night by herself for anything
U.S. Forest Service fire fighters are battling a fire on the border in Cochise County, AZ right now. They are pulled off the line at night and sit at a Rally Point from which they can battle hot spots if necessary. Why, you ask?
According to a USFS spokeswoman, it's because the border is too dangerous to leave small parties of unarmed firefighters along it, unprotected.
Remember the list, Jinx...
What is a cayote?
Intercepted means the load did not get through, at least at that time. In this article since they act like the contents of the duffle bags is a mystery, I would say the smugglers escaped back into Mexico with contraband.
What usually happens later on after (hours or days later) these incidents, likely during a CBP shift change is the load did go through after the officers left the area. Scary thought, but likely the case.
Some loads are caught, ie the contraband is seized. They may or may not be able to arrest smugglers, smugglers may flee back across the border without contraband.
Sometimes they get both smugglers (arrested) and contraband (seized) but these operations can have many outcomes.
This is just wonderful. How much worse does it have to get before our government is forced to do something?
This is sick!
Governors you have the right to call the national guard:
"We have laws in place, thanks to changes we made in the 108th Congress. Title 32, Section 9, U.S. Code now allows our governors to call out their National Guard for homeland security missions such as this at 100 percent Federal expense."
Then built the wall!
More Americans (that's US Citizens, of course) live along the border of Mexico than live in Iraq (at least as of now.)
What's the per-capita rate?
Support our Minutemen Patriots!
Be Ever Vigilant!
It's not only the ones your refering to, I believe they send their mentally ill and drug addicted as well. I live in central Texas and see them all the time.
Damn gillman, they're trying to turn us into Europe.
I read here somewhere that Bush,Fox and Harper meet again the latter part of March in Cancun to disscuss the FTAA and other "issues".
