BROWNSVILLE, Texas The defense department says it is investigating reports of a Mexican military helicopter seen flying in Texas.

Our gov’t will not do anything until something horrible happens that kills thousands in some Texas border town. Considering who is in the WH currently, they may not do much then....well, except arrest the surviving Americans, possibly...sigh...
Wassa-matter? Can’t they see the river from their helicopter? LOL ...
Chasing or assisting their drug dealers?
Just wondering... do not citizens have a right and an obligation to resist invasion by foreign military forces?
If a Texas rancher sees a Mexican Air Force helicopter above his land, doesn’t he have the right and responsibility to shoot it?
Only if it full of white, right wing, tea party militia men who don’t support national health care.../s
What...Either they did, or they didn’t...This is not that hard to figure out...Regional ATC has the radar data, If anyone on the ground these days was smart they’d have camera’s taking pics of the thing...
Just a whole lot of things working for us...
But then again a good confirmation would be wreakage...
They sure are violating the airspace more often these days...You’d think we’d scramble some air defense assets to force them to be a little better on thier navigation, at the very least, of course...
I think they are covering their drug running with these encursions, and no one is saying this publically...
But then again, what else is new...We don’t have a southern border anymore...
These headlines need a date of the incident, otherwise its just news of the same incident over and over.
Or if this is another incursion.
In situations like that you have to ask “What would Ernie Holmes do?”
If he likes to spend years in jail then YES.
Otherwise i would not recommend it ;-)
wondering if pot shots arent allowed - curious how the ole 45/70 might make the spinny thing react
Well, sure.....it’s Texas airspace NOW. Give it a few more Obama months.
You forgot Christian.
I don’t want the DHS coming after me...
Probably assisting.. Mexico's government ARE/is DRUG DEALERS..
it just depends on which cabal is in power at the time..
But then democracy is now and always has been Mob Rule.. by mobsters..
Are you kidding? Let me clue you folks in on something. You’ll be hard pressed to find many white folks anywhere southwest of I-10 or I-37. Anywhere south of a line between Corpus, San Antonio and Del Rio you’ll be lucky if they speak English.
There are towns down there where the only thing that looks like they are part of the United States is the post office.
That country is under siege. White ranchers are like the white farmers of Zimbabwe and the other “citizens” just don’t want to be sucked into the maelstrom that is Mexico.
The last time I flew into Laredo, there were six Mexican helos and one fixed-wing (737?) Mexican aircraft on the tarmac. I figured they were there for some sort of training with the DEA and/or border patrol.
Anyway, the next day the Laredo newspaper posted reports of “unconfirmed sightings” of Mexican aircraft at the airport. Really?
How hard would it have been to drive over to the airport and check it out. You could see the aircraft from the highway.
Anyway, probably a lot to do about nothing.
“Cuban helicopter spotted in Texas airspace” ??
They won't do anything then, either. It is in the interest of this regime to promte the disintegration of our borders.
“Our govt will not do anything until something horrible happens that kills thousands in some Texas border town. Considering who is in the WH currently, they may not do much then....”
Thousands died on 9/11 and Bush refused to effectively secure the border...in fact, later, he insulted us all by sending in the National Guard, unarmed. There is a BI-PARTISAN PROGRESSIVE effort by the Open Borders Lobby and the New World Order elites to destroy our sovereignty, our economy, and anything else necessary to usher in a EU style of government.
I agree. No one knows if they have not been invited.
But ok as long as some “patriots” don´t start to attack
the Holloman Air force base in new mexico for example (Becuase this base is “occupied” by the german air force
since years) to get rid of all those evil foreign military invaders no harm is taken. ;-)
Yea, that’s what I was thinking. How would a rotor shaft handle a 30-06 armor round. Bitch wouldn’t even know what hit him.
That main rotor mast is an awfully small target.
Much likelier hit: aim for the tail rotor, especially if the helicopter is at a hover or in slow flight, like when he’s looking for something or someone.
Loss of tail rotor effectiveness below translational lift airspeed will cause the aircraft to spin madly. The pilot has no choice but to dump main rotor thrust and a controlled crash is the best he can hope for.
However, be darn sure of your target.
Accidental border crossings by organized forces happen all the time, in most every region that has rugged and poorly regulated borders. This is absolutely non-news.
If this was AZ or NM I would agree - the border area on eithe rside looks pretty much the same there. But in this case, the Rio Grande is a pretty large and obvious terrain feature, there are no other rivers out there to get confused with it. I was assuming this is a daylight incident - a night incident would be a different matter (but then how could they claim its a Mexican helo in the first place?)
True but who says that it was even an “Accidental border crossings”? Possible but its allso possible that they have been “invited” because no one knows for shure what final destination they had. Again for example in new mexico you
will be able to see german tornados (sometimes armed) flying around.
Hey, you guys got it all wrong. The American government is negotiating to do something about it. They have approached the Dallas Cowboys with a proposal to get the game officials to throw an honorary five-yard penalty against the Mexicans in the very first game.
True enough. But there are also things like training flights for novice pilots, cross-border drug enforcement operations, etc.
In any case, I don’t think the Republic of Mexico is invading the United States of America. I’m inclined to think it was an accident and/or a cooperative issue.
