So what do you think our metro-sexual C&C will do about this? I am betting he'll play a round of golf and drink a couple Corona with Calderon?

TAAAARGET PRACTICE!!! Come’on you critters! TAAARRRRRGET PRACTICE!!!!!!

If those helos went back with a couple of bullet holes in the fuselage I think the pilots would be a little less inclined to violate US airspace again.

This was an accidental flyover just like the ones the Soviets did over Alaska.

To be followed by an accidental fly over like the Japanese did?

Something similar happened a few months ago. As far as I know, nothing was done about it.

What the hell are you so worked up over? They were probably just giving air cover to drug runners. /s

I don't understand, do they have radars there? Why do they need to "spot" anything?

Does it mean that if AQ wants to deliver a particularly heavy "device" across the border they can simply fly it in?

So what do you think our metro-sexual C&C will do about this?

Maybe he will read the article:

[U.S. Customs and Border Protection] Air and Marine Operations spokesman Juan Muñoz-Torres told Action 4 News that the agency was informed about the incursions by the Mexican government.

Muñoz-Torres said the public should not be alarmed by the incursions.

The Air and Marine Operations spokesman said that a long-standing agreement between the United States, Mexico and Canada allows for temporary incursions for medical or law enforcement purposes.

However, read the remainder of the article. The local sheriff says he "doesn't buy it", and explains why.

This is what happens when you let them think they are free to walk across with impunity. Now they feel free to fly across. I think a violation of U.S. airspace should be met with a show of force. Escort them back, give a strong warning and shoot next time.
