Posted on 08/09/2008 2:53:27 PM PDT by T.L.Sink
Mexican army soldiers invaded U.S. territory and held a member of the U.S. Border Patrol at gunpoint. "Unfortunately, this sort of behavior by Mexican military personnel has been going on for years," a statement from Local 2544 of the National Border Patrol Council said. The Tucson Sector Border Patrol agent was held at gunpoint near Ajo, Ariz. Mexican military personnel crossed over the border and pointed rifles at him. Judicial Watch documented 29 confirmed incidents along the U.S.-Mexican border involving Mexican military and/or law enforcement personnel in 2007. The Border Patrol union said, "A few years ago the Mexican military went a step further and put a 50 caliber rifle through the rear window of a Border Patrol agent's patrol vehicle south of Ajo. Nothing was ever done. Nobody was ever held accountable. Particularly galling is the fact that the Mexican military often pulls these stunts in Humvees donated to them by American taxpayers." Law enforcement authorities have long said Mexican soldiers have been hired to protect drug and migrant smugglers. On the Washington Times forum page, a participant said, "I'm surprised the Bush administration doesn't arrest and convict the border agents involved like they did Ramos and Compean. Don't worry, we won't have borders anyway. We'll be the North American Union and will be nothing more than a Third World oligarchy just like good old Mexico."

Most likely, concerning the border, the war is over, either way we ain’t going to like it.
After McCain-Kennedy, you have to have blinders on to believe McCain. After all, he hired Juan Hernandez.
I would imagine the Mexicans have been emboldened by Bush, seeing how he's made American sovereignty and citizenship all but pointless.
Nah. I think they're just drinking too much vodka.
Isn’t that how other countries do it?
“Mexico is a peaceful religion.”
We fought the Mexican War (1846-48) under President Polk and many of the U.S. officers were very prominent in American history. The future presidents Grant and Franklin Pierce participated. So, too, did Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis. The war was very unpopular, not because the U.S. didn’t have legitimate grievances against Mexico, but because the North felt it would result in an extension of slave territory. U.S. Grant, in his memoirs, said he hated the war for that reason but that Mexico was nevertheless guilty of very serious crimes against American sovereignty. In other words, the whole matter of justification for the war was obscured by the escalating and extremely controversial American domestic issue of slavery. This has, to the present day, also obscured the Mexican crimes against American national sovereignty. By the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo America paid Mexico $15 million for the ceded territory (what, about a billion or more dollars in today’s currency?). But to put this in context, the land that today seems so priceless beyond imagination, was at that time virtually worthless per acre, unsettled, undeveloped, and largely occupied by hostile Indian tribes. Given today’s PC historical revisionism this part of American history is falsely described as American “imperialism” and exploitation. The facts tell another story.
It was near Ajo. May be near Why, What, Where or When, but still about 40 miles from the Mexican border.
I drove past Ajo a few times, and we commented on the pronunciation...must be A-Ho right? Why people have called me the name of a city before, I don't know...
You’re right again. But I put the blinders on again because I’m afraid to face the “change” that that empty suit Obama will bring. In horse-race terms, Obama is a sure winner for ruin while McCain is a long shot (say 25-1) for victory. How would you bet? It’s a sad day to be at the track!
Well, it’s like picking two horses and you don’t win with either one.
Bad day at the track! LOL
No, what is emboldening them is a US administration, and two candidates who both love illegals....
They might be emboldened by drinking Georgian vodka. By the way, is that the controversial map that Absolut printed showing the future map of the Reconquista? Don’t laugh, follow the money!
I gotta proof better. Yes it is Ajo, pronounced Ah-ho. Another is Gila Bend, pronounced Hila Bend. And Globe, pronounced ...Globe!
Why is about 10 miles closer to the border but who ever heard of Why, 8^,
My SIL’s folks live in Why. Why, I don’t know.
“Bush is more an agent of Mexico & then a patriotic American!”
Bush-I named his oil company Zapata Oil, and Bush II named his exploration company Arbusto. There’s a definite love of all things Mexican with the Bush’s.
I didn't know there was a Why not associated with What, and When.
I know where Who is.
Who is on first.
There is a niece town up by the lake named and spelled Nice. Like the French one.
“I see him there,
Bringing a stone grasped firmly by the top
In each hand, like an old-stone savage armed.
He moves in darkness as it seems to me,
Not of woods only and the shade of trees.
He will not go behind his father’s saying,
And he likes having thought of it so well
He says again, ‘Good fences make good neighbors.’”
You forgot Bush trying to move gang member Jose Medellin’s execution to life in prison, courtesy of the US taxpayers...
He sided with Mexico, again.
The very same.
I read and saw several detailed accounts and descriptions of what happened to those two young girls who took a shortcut home and were attacked, tortured, raped and murdered by Medillin and his gang of illegal aliens. It was an act of savagery and barbarism that defies description. That Bush can use the pretext that if we don’t accept a foreign convention (Vienna), then the same things might happen to Americans abroad is so outrageous and absurd that I’m at a loss for words. Where has common sense and sanity gone? A late conservative justice of the Supreme Court said in his final days that he found it harder and harder each day to recognize the country he loved and served.
