Border: If there's one word we shouldn't want to add to the U.S. lexicon, it's sicario, the Spanish word for contract killer. But with lawmen warning of sicarios now in Arizona, we may soon know that word and worse.
With little to worry about in crossing the unguarded U.S. border, it was only a matter of time before cartel smugglers began fighting over the lucrative spoils themselves.
Last May 13, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) warned Arizona authorities that it had intelligence that 15 trained sicarios from Mexico's Sinaloa cartel were heading to Arizona, the Arizona Republic reported. The sicarios were sent to kill other criminals who steal their illegal cocaine and heroin "loads."
It means grisly desert massacre scenes like those in the 2007 film "No Country for Old Men" could become commonplace in the U.S.
Indeed, lawmen believe it's already happening here.
It's tempting to dismiss the sicarios here as simply criminals targeting other criminals. But it won't end there. It never does.
Young sicarios have a depraved indifference to human life and will eventually take their profession public, shooting up shopping malls, setting off car bombs, killing politicians, blowing up skyscrapers and downing airliners. It happened in Colombia when Medellin cartel kingpin Pablo Escobar recruited the first sicario armies in the 1980s. And it's repeating itself in Mexico today.

And, our government is protecting us? I don’t think so.
Border Insecurity PING!!!!
Arizona shouldn’t worry.
Arizona can just put a bounty on the sicarios.
High unemployment in the U.S. A., plenty of hunters.
Sicarios would be history in 60 days.
And Obama would not like that one bit. Obama wants historic revenge on the Sourthern States. He is a fascist, and historic justice is the calling card of every fascist since Napoleon.
Response: Every cloud has a silver lining!
Must be a mistake. President George W Bush assured us this is all about "family values." Poor humble hardworking Pedro only seeking to feed his family...
Right away I'm suspicious.
this can’t be happening because Secretary Incompitano told us our border security has simply never been better.
So, they’re always “warning” Arizona, heck let’s go to war with Mexico instead, time to get serious.
Well thank God that at least we’ll be saving the planet by pumping more ethanol into our tanks to ruin our engines...
I’m sure they can be rebuilt in Mexico.
Take our McCain, please.
