Mexican cartels are recruiting hit men from the U.S. military, offering big money to highly-trained soldiers to carry out contract killings and potentially share their skills with gangsters south of the border, according to law enforcement experts.
The involvement of three American soldiers in separate incidents, including a 2009 murder that led to last weeks life sentence for a former Army private, underscore a problem the U.S. military has fought hard to address.
"We have seen examples over the past few years where American servicemen are becoming involved in this type of activity," said Fred Burton, vice president for STRATFOR Global Intelligence.

We’re turning into Mexico, drip by drip.
One drug cartel — Los Zetas — was founded by Mexican special forces who were trained by the U.S. military. The drug cartels are most under-reported story IMO.
Any wonder why they want to grant citizenship to Mexicans who want to be Americans by serving in the armed forces?
And Los Zetas is certainly regarded as one of the most utterly ruthless of the cartels - and that’s saying something!
Hey they can apparently hire Congressman, Senators, and Presidents whats the big deal about a private?
when the alternative is eight bucks an hour at Walmart...

Sadly, this is where we are, folks.
Active duty Mexican military regularly moonlight with the cartels. With the way things are going, it’s hardly a surprise that we’re seeing it happen here, too.
Bill Clinton got his 5% from the cartels, and I presume that Obama is probably getting paid too.

(cough) Gays! (cough)
I suddenly find myself wondering about the claims that our military people will “do the right thing” when push comes to shove re obeying obviously unconstitutional orders for mass gun seizures, unlawful martial law, etc.
We import PHALANXES of Mexicans into the USA, and then when they behave like Mexicans, THIS IS SURPRISING...?
Only *fools* would be surprised by that...!
