I am feeling so good about the fact that our vigilant media will cover this heinous outrage on the part of the troops...
Wait, there weren’t U.S. Marines?

A government-run human rights commission accused soldiers of rape and torture today
As long as they didn't force prisoners to wear panties on their heads, what's the big deal?

Maybe the MSM will carry this on the evening news and actually DEMONIZE Mexico for a change. That and their crappy economy that’s causing a mass exodus.

The commission said soldiers allegedly raped 14 women in a small town in the state of Coahuila. The second, in early May of this year, soldiers responding to an ambush in the western state of Michoacan allegedly entered homes without warrants, stole money and property, tied residents up and threatened them with death if they didn't provide information. The soldiers allegedly submerged at least one person in a well, sexually abused two children and raped two teenage girls. In the third case, also in early May in Michoacan, Soberanes said soldiers rounded up and tortured at least seven adults and one child in a small town that was the site of a shootout with suspected drug traffickers. Many of the victims reported having bags placed over their heads while they were beaten.
This is the way they treat their own people, in their own country! That ought to scare any one knowing awol Mexican military is all over this country in gangs and in our parks and forests growing dope!
This is also the same Mexican Military that your government is telling you is helping US fight drugs and border crime!

Calderon ordered the nationwide crackdown shortly after taking office on Dec. 1, and has said the war against drug trafficking is his top priority.
Top priority???? Calderon's pants are on fire.
Like his predecessor Fox, his main priority is shipping Mexico's poor out of Mexico ASAP for the good ol' American taxpayers to pay for. He knows the President of the United States is still rolling out the red carpet for them.
