Since it’s inception (a dream within a dream within a dream), TTAG has been arguing that the Mexican drug violence is a direct threat to the safety and sanctity of the United States of America. The current euphemism for the mounting drug-related violence on the Yankee side of the border: “spillover.” Make no mistake about it: the Mexican drug cartels are fully-fledged terrorist organizations. Check this from laht.com: “The hijacking of a bus in San Fernando, a city in the northeastern Mexican state of Tamaulipas, was staged to recruit gunmen for a drug gang, the Reforma newspaper reported, citing accounts from eyewitnesses.” Guess what happened to the “recruits”—and women—who didn’t join up . . .
Los Zetas, considered Mexico’s most violent drug cartel, is suspected of murdering 72 migrants last August at a ranch outside San Fernando after they refused to join the organization as hired guns.
The bodies of the 58 men and 14 women were discovered on Aug. 24 by marines after a shootout with gunmen that left a marine and three criminals dead.
The massacre victims came from Ecuador, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Brazil and India, but the majority were Hondurans.
Several mass graves containing another 72 bodies were found last week in La Joya, a rural community outside San Fernando, near where the bodies were discovered last summer.
According to the nzherald.co.nz, the U.S. consulate has warned Americans to stay the hell out of the Mexican state of Tamaulipas, where the Zetas drug cartel has effectively taken control.
You know that “war on drugs” every president since and including Richard Nixon has supposedly fought? It’s time to start that action for real.
If we need to legalize drugs, do it. Deploy the Army to our southern border? Do it. Hello? Isn’t defending our borders one of the President’s constitutional duties? You know; as opposed to committing U.S. troops to Libya without Congressional approval.
As for the ATF enabling weapons to flow to the cartels, that strikes me as the worst “plan” I’ve heard since Waco. Who’s idea was that? Get rid of anyone who had anything to do with Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast and Furious and throw some serious firepower at the drug cartels—not to them. Just sayin’.
