The following’s a brief message from the man who feeds me links on the ATF’s Operation Fast and Furious (F&F) and other issues relating to U.S. Border Security and the illicit drug trade destroying the rule of law south of the border.

“I think we and all us covering this need to keep pointing out that one of the primary reasons the drug cartels and gangs run rampant is that the Mexican people have been disarmed. They lost their remaining RKBA [Right to Keep and Bear Arms] in the late 60’s and early 70’s, under the extremely corrupt PRI governments . . .

To obtain a firearm and ammo legally is almost impossible for the Mexican people. Numerous instances of drug gangs over running towns and villages throughout Mexico. But then if the Mexican people were able to fight back against the drug gangs, what if they decided to take on corruption next?

On the F&F links, more needs to be brought out on the hundreds or possible more Mexican citizens killed. Press the Mexican government for more details on that.

Also, over the last couple years since F&F surfaced, the Mexican government has suppressed details on firearms recovered.  Typical reports before then would include make, model and serial number.

Strings on U.S. aid money? Any future “strings” on U.S. aid money should include restoration of Human Rights and RKBA to the people of Mexico.”

  1. The Mexican government encourages the young men of Mexico to illegally cross the border into the USA for several reasons. One of them, of course, is the amount of money sent back to the families of the illegal migrants – it represents the 2nd or 3rd largest amount of money entering Mexico from across the border (below illegal drug money and oil exports to the US).

    But another reason equally important to the Mexican power structure is that the young, unemployed males have historically been Mexico’s “revolutionary class”. By sending them to the US, Mexico decreases the chances of another revolution. With the US recession during the last three years, this group of young males is returning to Mexico – out of work, unhappy, and possibly revolutionary. No wonder the Mexican oligarchy wants to keep guns out of their hands.

  2. As with many things,there are several angles to this problem and why the bloody status quo serves the powers that be.
    One,gangs taking over towns may be a problem for the inhabitants but not for the corrupt Mexican local governor who takes a cut of the gang’s payout.
    Two,drug smuggling is big business.If America went to legalization,no more yachts,mistresses and limos for the cartel heads.The Mexican government would lose money too;no more U.S. Federal aid for narcotics teams or Federal police forces.And for the sprinkles on the cake,every Mexican who emigrates illegally to the USA represents a near certain vote to any politican who talks a good game one “amnesty for illegals”.Ill let the reader figure out which politican benefits from that…..but the answer is Barrak Obama.

  3. It’s no accident that Mexico’s constitution is one of the few besides that US that acknowledges the right to keep and bear arms. But the corrupt sons of bitches, disarmed the populace in the late 60’s because they were facing a youth revolution that wanted a democracy. Since there was only one single party and no real elections, the people of Mexico had absolutely no say in it.

  4. That might be one of the reasons. But it’s not one of the primary reasons. the primary reasons are that the cartels employ experienced killers with superior weaponry who have made it clear, through experience, that if you oppose them, they will capture, torture or merely kill your family. The cartels effectively use domestic terrorism to intimidate people from opposing them. Any mexican who wants an illegal gun can get one, as easy or easier than an american can. If mexican citizens were serious about resisting cartels, they would arm up. But they don’t. It’s much easier to try to live your life under the cartel radar, which most do successfully. After all, why wasn’t there a popular armed uprising against the american mafia in the 40s, 50s, and 60s?

      I give up — why?

  5. During the period of WWII, 1941-1945, the Mob or organized crime ran the water fronts, on both sides of the country, with the blessing of the government. The unions were to scared to fight the powers that were in charge. In the 50’s the government was to concerned about the “…red scare…” to worry about the mob on any higher level than what they considered neccessary. In the 60’s the mob was running Las Vegas, which during that time was virtually crime free.
    The govt. was running a little known war called vietnam. Again their direction was aimed at the red scare, and the trouble makers in the equal rights movement. At what point did you want the govt. to go after the bad guys? They were far to busy watching the citizens to make any in roads into organized crime.
    Now we are saddled with a govt. that is itself selling guns, drugs, and money laundering. We have an Attorney General that supports a commie muslim, with one idea in mind. That is to destroy this nation! Keep your friends close, keep your guns closer!

  6. Drug Control, Gun Control, and a corrupt Government fuels the chaos in Mexico. Drug Control and a corrupt Government in the USA fuels chaos in Mexico.
