It’s WAY past time to acknowledge what U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told us (before she “clarified” her remark): Mexican drug cartels are a fully-fledged terrorist insurgency. To wit this from laht.com: “Police in Texas urged U.S. citizens not to cross into Nuevo Laredo, a border city in the northeastern Mexican state of Tamaulipas, this weekend, citing reports that a drug cartel planned to attack Americans. Los Zetas, considered Mexico’s most violent drug cartel, plans to attack Americans who cross the border during the Fourth of July weekend, the Texas Department of Public Safety, or DPS, and the Webb County Sheriff’s Office said . . .
“According to the information we have received, the Zetas are planning a possible surge in criminal activity, such as robberies, extortions, car-jackings and vehicle theft, specifically against U.S. citizens,” DPS director Steven C. McCraw said in a statement released on Saturday.
“We urge U.S. citizens to avoid travel to Nuevo Laredo this weekend if it can be avoided,” McCraw said.
As we’ve pointed out before, Los Zetas are the enemy of our “friends” (the Mexican government). That would make them our enemies as well, in case you didn’t figure that out.
So how long before cartel-related violence spills over into the U.S.? Hello? We’re already there. How many examples do you need? How about a beheading in Phoenix? Bottom line America’s War On Drugs must stop before we’re engulfed by it.
