Bombing the consulates that Americans won’t bomb.
Prayers for those within the Consulate.
These bombings and killings exceed the reasons Obama's Amnesty plans need to be put aside. Goes to show there are some in Mexico who have nothing but contempt for America. Some are no doubt already here via gangs and drug cartels; others from Somalia (and other terrorist countries) are defnitely here and have "disappeared" within.

Mexican Cartels Using IEDs
Copy of AuntB’s earlier post
Somalis with terrorist links feared headed to U.S. border
[snip]Somalis with ties to a terrorist organization are believed to be plotting to illegally enter the United States after being mistakenly released from custody in Mexico, a confidential federal law enforcement report said. SNIPPET: Included in the group is Mohamed Osman Noor, 35, of Somalia, who U.S. officials suspect has strong ties to Al-Shabaab Mujahideen, an Islamist insurgency group in the ongoing war in Somalia with ties to al Qaeda. The report was written by an intelligence official with the Laredo Sector Border Intelligence Center, a joint federal task force under the Department of Homeland Security that operates on...
Michelle Obama will be down in Mexico next week. assign her to the task of figuring this out...she could practice her just move routine..
All I can say is stay alert.
“Bomb damages US consulate in Mexico; no injuries”
© 2010 The Associated Press
April 10, 2010, 5:04PM
SNIPPET: “U.S. State Department employees in the area had not been victimized until last month. That’s when gunmen separately chased down and killed an American woman who worked at the U.S. consulate in Ciudad Juarez along with her husband in their SUV and another man married to a Mexican consulate worker in a similar vehicle. All three had been at the same party.”
Lindsey Graham, please pick up the white courtesy phone. Lindsey Graham....
I’m hoping that this news helps put the brakes on the amnesty bill.
“By all means lets give these terrorists US Citizenship!”
Graham is on it today!
Schumer and Graham set to introduce immigration reform bill in Senate (”Si se puede”)
I think we should find a congressman/woman (whatever) to introduce an annexation bill to counter the amnesty bills. I think it should state that if illegal Mexicans want to become Americans they should bring their land and resources to the table for consideration as well. It’s only fair, right?
Thanks for your efforts. :-)
See you on the gardening thread sometime?
This is so disappointing, I thought the entire world loved the USA now that Zero is our president. (sarcasm).
The US citizens from the embassy that were assassinated a couple weeks ago were targeted because the husband worked for the El Paso Jail.
The rancher was murdered because he was a US citizen land owner.
These Mexican cartels, and their supportive ‘authorities’ have declared war against US citizens.
We will lose any war we refuse to admit exists.
We need to man our borders, end of story. If Mexico doesn’t like it, tough beans. They can’t control there population, we will have to. This is getting dangerous and it’s been bad even in my mothers neighborhood with MS-13 gangs. And that’s in Montgomery County, MD. Not a border town :(
“Let’s not jump to conclusions. We need to understand that America has acted arrogantly in the past and our chickens were bound to come home to roost. I am sure that Mexicans also believe in Mexican exceptionalism so we should just view this as an exception. Oh, and Sarah Palin is a doo doo head.” - 0dumbanddumber
I take comfort in the knowledge that this cultural misunderstanding will not be used as an excuse for mean spirited anti-immigrant racist retaliation.
It was early this morning when I read here that IEDs may soon be used in Mexico as a terror weapon. Its getting to be a very unstable place.

meanwhile the head cheese is off watching his daughter’s soccer game or else playing golf
Just what is the problem? This is explainable and reasonable. Maybe the mexos were just hoping to rely on our bomb-defusing expertise. They love the “gringos” now that nobama and his minions are in power. People need to lighten up and give reasonable consideration for the historical suffering of the proud mexican peoples. (EPIC SARC)
Yep, I’m going in and out today planting this, that and more...
obama voters must be wondering why obama has failed to make ‘the world live as one’. /sarcasm
Give peace a chance?
I don’t think so.
It’s more like “Give feces a chance.”
“at 11 pm the night of April 9”
All you need to know.
Never happened. Since the traitors put obama in offie the World loves us. If they love us, why would they want to bomb our consulates?
I didn’t know they had Amish in Mexico.....
No. He is getting his story straight and taking orders from his controllers, getting language, etc., etc.
“Bombing the consulates that Americans wont bomb.”
we’ll get people coming on here saying how safe Brownsville and Laredo are etc.... how inexpensive.......I am sorry...I just don’t see it....
WELLLLL we can’t do anything back..maybe we can appease them with citizenship THEN they bomb the flippin WHITE HOUSE!!
With all I have read about the problems on th border, Nuevo Laredo just might be the most dangerous town in Mexico.
Another location might indicate terrorists of the Arab variety, like a tourist attraction or Mexico City.
Not here. These terrorists are of the narco persuasion and their powdery white bricks are literally to die for.
They go through Police Chiefs like a kid does Pez.
Boy..Obama sure has made us all safer.../sarcasm. Let’s see..we have Putin re-newing the old soviet empire today...a suspicious plane crash of the entire Polish government and military brass...Israel being surrounded by terrorist jackals with Obama’s approval..Iran making fun of Zero and building their bombs...Qatar dipomats causing bomb scares on US planes and cracking jokes about shoe bombers as he goes to visit an AQ terrorist...and the destruction of our nuclear capacity to protect ourselves. All this in just a week.
Obama’s on a roll.
It’s open season on America and our allies now that Obama has told the world he wont defend us.
Permanently close the consulate office.
Permanently recall the ambassador and office staff.
Permanently close the border.
OK, now that’s solved anything else?
Early Cinco de Mayo celebration.
This can’t be true. I keep hearing how “warm” the people are south of the border.
There is a solution to the whole “border problem.” Simply admit Mexico to the Union as the 51st through 81st states. No more border, no more citizenship issues, no more smuggling. Oh, and all 111 million Mexican citizens- now US citizens- get to pay US taxes and obey US laws. Sounds like a plan to me.
If the citizens of Mexico don’t like the idea, then the border stays exactly where it is, and stays a border.
Time to send in Geraldo Rivera.

[Over 200 posts long now with several hundred links]
Yes, I agree that in all fifty seven states, Mexico is by far the one Michelle 0bama has always been proud of. Juan McStain will pretend to seek an imaginary fence acrosss the border until after the primary. It will be constructed with wet noodles. Border patrols will be armed heavily with air whips.
