Armed to the hilt, they came from land and air, determined to restore order to Mexico's most violent city. Nearly 2,000 Mexican soldiers and armed federal police poured into the border town of Ciudad Juarez last weekend.

AK-47s are built where?
Earth to idiot Mexicans!......We wanted a wall ya’all!!!
Problem is US demand for drugs and unlimited cash supply it creates for drug cartels
How about Earth to idiot DC?
dunno about the full auto ones, but semi-auto ones are
made here, as well as Yugo, Egypt, Bulgaria, Romania,
They are not coming from America, but from other countries. The statement that they are coming from our country is simply laying the blame on others to defelct criticism of the current Calderon governement.
The tough question is:
-Are the Mexican authorities willing to do what is necessary?
They must know who the drug cartels employ. Would they be willing to eradicate these people? Or are they simply making a show of force on behalf of an impotent government?
Hey if the Mexican troops are successful, maybe we could invite them to storm Washington D.C, to put down the local dangerous criminal gang.
You know, the criminals headed by Obama and Pelosi.
Still not buying it.
Weapons entering mexico are more likely entering on container ships through cartel controlled ports in mexico. However that doesn’t do much for the gun control argument here.
I saw (a few weeks ago) some ‘mafia’ backed demonstration against the police, imagine how bad it is.
“They are not coming from America, but from other countries. The statement that they are coming from our country is simply laying the blame on others to defelct criticism of the current Calderon governement.”
Right. The Mexican government refuses to provide our government the serial numbers of any guns they claim have come from the U.S. ... because they did not come from the U.S.
It is propaganda, and our own governement is going to try and use it to take away another of our freedoms.
There are also connections between the drug gangs and the increasing number of leftist drug-producing countries in Latin America. Mexico is the end of the chain before stuff gets across the border, which is where the money is. (Actually, at the rate we’re going, maybe that won’t be a problem much longer!)
“The statement that they are coming from our country is simply laying the blame on others to defelct criticism of the current Calderon governement.”
And to disarm us for La Raza and Aztlan Nation. “The Drug War” is a prybar.
Oh, of course some guns and ammo come from the states, but I have a very hard time believing that most are. Especially since the cartels are using full auto weapons, hand grenades, etc.
There are lots of easy ways for drug cartels to get weapons. I would venture to guess that the easiest way is through corrupt military and police.
Call to Arms boys!!!!
“Nearly 2,000 Mexican soldiers and armed federal police poured into the border town of Ciudad Juarez last weekend.”
2,000? LOL....to fight millions on the side of the cartels. And half of them are working with the cartels.
They’re getting their grenades from Korea per a report last week. And don’t forget, Iran and Mexico have great trade relations.
Smoke and mirrors until more U.S. funding arrives.
