Mexican 'hit team' murders US worker
AFP ^ | March 15, 2010

Posted on 03/14/2010 12:02:52 PM PDT by george76

SUSPECTED drug cartel "hit teams" have murdered an American consular employee and her husband in a Mexican border city and killed the husband of another consular official in two separate attacks.

The victims came under fire in separate locations while driving in the northern border city of Ciudad Juarez on Saturday...

"The attacks resulted in three fatalities - two American citizens and one Mexican citizen,"

After the slayings, the State Department announced that US diplomats working in consulates along Mexico's northern border had been authorised to send family members home because of security concerns.

The drug related violence pandemic that has been occurring in Mexico for the last two years is criminally under-reported. The number of people killed in drug-related violence is around 18,000, dwarfing the number killed in Iraq and Afghanistan combined the last several years.

Los Zetas en mexico has been killing in Arizona and Texas for the number of years. Phoenix is the murder capital of the US, beating out wonderlands as DC, Detriot and chitown.

Time to bring back the Ranger Special Forces (as in Texas Rangers)

Wow. The big Zero seems to have gotten his game plan from his predecessor.

I think at some point each state will have to secede from the Union and protect itself from third world savages. Neither political party nor the govt seems interested in it.

...AND news media and Federal Government are SIILENT. This was published — in the AUSTRALIAN?! Our nation should give this ultimatum to Mexico: (1) Capture and turn over the perps and planners of these assassinations within one week (2) secure your NORTHERN border from all drug traffickers, or your government will be held responsible for ANY actions they take (3) failure to do these things in a timely manner will be considered an invitation for the United States military to launch an expeditionary force into northern Mexico to SECURE the borders. Of course, this would not BE an issue if our own Government did their Constitutional duty to secure our borders in the first place.

I'm afraid that this is the Bush legacy although I don't expect Obama to do anything to improve the situation.

I don't know if there is even a savior on the horizon in our political future.

“I’m really getting sick of having to read about American news events in the foreign press.”

It seems that’s what we’re up against. NAFBPO searches and translates all the news from south of the border daily.
It is a REAL eye opener!

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF FORMER BORDER PATROL OFFICERS
Visit our website: http://www.nafbpo.org
M3 Foreign news report. (Some on FR under keyword: NAFBPO)

This is the latest one:

Friday, 3/12/10

El Universal (Mexico City) 3/11/10

A multi-national plan

The government of Mexico and representatives from Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama and the Dominican Republic signed an accord and set up a work group to combat the traffic in chemical precursors in the area, as well as to share information about the traffic routes of drugs, weapons and persons, with the object of confronting trans-national criminal organizations.

U.S. Ambassador, again

The U.S. Ambassador to Mexico, Carlos Pascual, met with “parliament leaders of the (Mexican) Senate, and spoke about the Merida Initiative, immigration, weapons traffic and border security and violence.”

Senator Ricardo Monreal said that Ambassador Pascual informed them that “the presentation of a possible migratory reform in the U.S. is postponed at least until 2012 because this year there are elections in that country and it is an issue which generates much controversy, for which reason it will remain pending.”

[However, “Excelsior,” (another Mexico City paper,) reported on the same issue but said that Pascual told the Senators that the White House is analyzing a new initiative that would be made public after the elections.]

El Tiempo, Secretaria de Prensa, (Bogota, Colombia) 3/11/10

An explosive find

Colombian military and personnel from the country’s equivalent to our Dep’t. of Justice detected and destroyed a ton and a half of R1, an explosive used to manufacture anti-personnel mines. (The event took place in a rural zone near Argelia, in the department (state) of Antioquia (some 35 mi. S.E. of Medellin).)

This amount would have been sufficient for 10,000 such mines. In the last three months, in Colombia, 7,077 kilos of explosives have been seized from “illegal armed groups.”

———————-

El Financiero (Mexico City) 3/11/10

Mexican officials are readying a project that could bring up to 500 Haitians to Mexico on a humanitarian visa program to reunite Mexican citizens with their Haitian relatives. The program would allow the Haitians a renewable 1 year stay in Mexico, during which time they would be able to study, work and travel.

———————–

El Diario (Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua) 3/11/10

Juarez doesn’t rest

(In the eighth place among the secondary listing of “more news” of the local section)

“Those assassinated yesterday add up to 7”

A more prominent item reported that, as of early afternoon, another four men had become victims of homicide today (Thurs.) And a later report stated that a man was shot and killed outside the Justo Sierra elementary school, just at the time that the children from the morning session were leaving and others were arriving for a later session of classes. “The deceased was identified only as Jose Filiberto, who had a handicap that prevented him from walking.” (photo relates)

————————

Norte (Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua) 3/11/10

Death threat to Juarez mayor

A pig’s head was found on a street in Ciudad Juarez yesterday morning. Beside it, there was also a note addressed to the city’s mayor, Jose Reyes Ferriz. It read: “Jose Reyes Ferriz, you are a pig, you have two weeks of life left ha ha ha.” (The photo in the newspaper accompanying that article shows what appears to be a dead and eviscerated dog, which agrees with other reports about this event.) “Norte” also added that there have been 76 homicides this month in Ciudad Juarez.

- end or report -

Not sure we have the forces with the two wars currently being prosecuted. But there is a significant danger here in continuing to ignore this problem. The MS-13 gangs, the border town skirmishes, etc all need to be dealt with severely. Many of the youth here in San Antonio are getting involved in gangs and until something severe is done, they will continue to scare the cops and law-abiding people. Somewhere you have to draw the line. I don’t care how well funded these narcos are - they are nowhere near as equipped and trained as well as the US Military.

” I don’t care how well funded these narcos are - they are nowhere near as equipped and trained as well as the US Military.”

They appear to be well-funded enough to own the people who give the orders to that military, though.

“They’re just committing murders that Americans won’t commit.”

The NAFBPO news report often tells of threats border patrol, law enforcement gets from the cartels. They’re just keeping their promise. This is just the beginning.

THIS REPORTED 3/15 by the Australian: drug cartel hit teams murdered an American consular employee and her husband in a Mexican border city and killed the husband of another consular official in two separate attacks. The victims came under fire while driving in the northern border city of Ciudad Juarez on Saturday...

AND THIS REPORTED 3/12 by the San Antonio Express-News: A Mexican military helicopter flew over the border from the state of Tamaulipas into Texas "amid ongoing fighting between the Gulf Cartel and its former enforcers, Los Zetas" ........one of the more jarring incidents of the fourth week of border tensions sparked by drug killings, and rumors of such killings, in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas.

No question we are being invaded-----and are now occupied-----by savage Mexicans intent on taking over the US. We have every reason to be wary of all those hamburger flippers and lawn mowers who violated our borders "for a better life." All these savages are colluding to build an army in the US.

=======================================

Oct 25, 2009 American Patrol Report: Savage Zetas, descendants of the Aztecs, known for beheading and dismembering their enemies, are integrating their primitive savagery into the US.

In his groundbreaking book, Wakeup Call from Mexico, Wilson Beck describes how the dark side of Mexico stretches back to the days of the Aztecs when hundreds of thousands of people were sacrificed and eaten each year. He says today many young men in Mexico are enamored with the idea of being descendants of the Aztecs.

Now, according to the Houston Chronicle, the brutal savage Zetas, known for beheading and dismembering their enemies, are tightening their grip on an area bordering Southern Texas.

==============================================

Critics say our CIA and State Department are well aware of the dark side of Mexico and regularly brief U.S. presidents on the reality south of the border. “It is unfortunate that Mexico got off to such a bad start,” said Glenn Spencer of the American Patrol Report,” but it is wrong to sacrifice the United States of America to correct problems south of the border.”

Spencer said while Mexicans are being besieged, which is nothing new for them, Americans are being betrayed by a government that refuses to protect them.

Despite this, President Bush and now President Obama have been secretly working to integrate the US and Mexico into a common political and economic unit.
