Obama Administration Allowing Mexican Police To Operate On US Soil; Wants To Apply Lessons
Big Peace ^ | 8/26/11 | Niccolo Machiavelli

Posted on 08/26/2011 6:56:59 PM PDT by Nachum

“Mexican commandos have discreetly traveled to the United States, assembled at designated areasand dispatched helicopter missions back across the border aimed at suspected drug traffickers,” reports the New York Times. This is all part of what the Obama Administration is calling “boomerang operations” which are designed to get at Mexican drug traffickers through the back door. ”The cartels don’t expect Mexican police coming from the U.S.,” one senior military official told the Times. Clearly things are not going well in Mexico.

”The cartels don’t expect Mexican police coming from the U.S.,”

I got news for this administration. WE don’t expect it either. How dare he?

There was a recent story about a Mexican helo landing by mistake in the US. Maybe is related.

Borders do not have significance to socialists.

Their basic tenant “what is yours is theirs” means that they have no respect for the concept of personal property or ownership and do not acknowledge limits, boundaries or borders.

They are guided by appetite and desire, not a sense of right and wrong.

Obama’s attitude toward illegals has already shown his attitude about the sanctity of our borders - there isn’t any as far as he is concerned.

This action is just a natural extension of that lack of respect for America’s sovereignty.

Yup.

I’m waiting to find out whether our guys end up looking down the barrel of one of those .50 cals.

You know, there’s so much arid, nook and cranny territory down there that a person(s) could end up never being found. Isn’t that AMAZING?

Yes, see my post #15. If I recall correctly it was a Mexican military helicopter that was supposedly lost. Not like they couldn’t look out the window and see it was Laredo not Mexico. Any other country would have shot it down.

When the government is setting precedent that the border does not need to be respected, it is giving the Mexican government ammunition in the event it becomes necessary for the government to try and defend the border before a court of law.

What are the Vegas odds that the Mexican Police or Military are not corrupt and actually running contraband themselves?

Here are 3 cops near the Casino Tragedy that did nothing..

Then we would just have to give them another helicopter. While our agents are flying in the oldest Blackhawks in existence, we are buying R models for the Mexicans.

I think you have it about right. Mexico is a failed Narco state and will soon resemble Colombia in the 80’s. The Mexican govt is losing the drug war to the cartels. I believe that within 2-3 years we will probably be putting troops in Mexico. We will end up having to clean out the cartels for the Mexicans.

We'll have to go to war with Mexico before we can clean out the cartels. They are bought and paid for by different segments of the Mexican government. Each cartel has a piece of the military, law enforcement, judiciary and civil government, and vice versa. There's no way to fight one without fighting them all.

The Mexicans are still angry that we invaded over 100 years ago, and they resist having any military advisors in the country at all, aside from a tiny handful at the Embassy in Mexico City. They absolutely will not accept our help willingly.

Do you think that there's any stomach at all for a U.S. military invasion of Mexico?

When American law enforcement shoot somebody crossing the border illegally sometimes they are brought up on charges or are sued for violation of US civil rights. When the Mexican troops shoot someone on American Soil what happens?

Well there is not much stomach for Afghanistan and Libya either. But you are right we will probably have to just go in there at some point. It appears that the border situation is just deteriorating geometrically. I think the corruption of the Mexican govt cannot ever be overcome from within. Its too endemic.

The picture is bullshit. The soldier is a US Army Special Forces NCO and the choppers are MH-47s. That picture was taken in Afghanistan a few years ago and has been misused by any number of web persons. It is even used on sidebar ads on Facebook trying to entice people into taking some school’s DEA, ATF, etc. training.

Bush was AWOL on the Mex. border.. <<- in case you missed it..
**************************************

You can say that again! If 9/11 hadn’t happened— Bush would have given it to us without any lubricant.

Bush was planting kisses all over Vicente Fox’s butt prior to 9/11—he and Obama aren’t far apart on this issue.

The only difference I see is party, because the party who gets that bow on the gift first—they win ‘most popular’ and get that Mexican vote.

The whole mess just makes me think about Aesop’s fable— The Greedy Dog. That’s all those politicians are... they are greedy dogs.

They will drop the bone they have to bark and try to collect another bone, from the dog that’s only a reflection.

They drop their patriotism, their promises to American citizens/constituents chasing MORE — the only way they aren’t dogs—is that at least dogs are loyal, not these turds!

UGH! They make me so frustrated and angry over this issue!

That's a pretty good metaphor for RINOs trying to trade favors for Hispanic votes. But there are some polls suggesting that such pandering doesn't work for Obama either. His approval among US Hispanics was 49%. Then he issued his "amnesty by fiat" and it went down to 44% according to 2 Gallup polls.

What is more ironic is Mexico’s immigration laws that offer severe penalties if you cross their border illegally. Like throwing you in a hell hole prison for a year or two or three or four awaiting the authorities deciding whether to bring you to trial or just let you rot.

I say close the border completely for six months to a year with a full blown military presence letting nothing crossing over until Mexico’s government gets it act together. Then we’ll talk...
