My regular source of news down Mexico way send me links to Spanish language crime reports, with his introductory comments. As he’s heavily involved in border control issues—in ways that might not be considered politically, perhaps legally correct—I can’t reveal his ID. Suffice it to say, he’s on the sharp end. And those of us who aren’t really need to be paying attention here . . .
This story [from animalpolitico.com] is getting extensive play in Mexico. Javier Sicilia is correct: Mexico is now embroiled in a civil war between the government and narco-terrorists. It will be settled by violence. Surrender to the drug cartels will result in another narco state like Afghanistan, war lords and all. Grenades, Stinger missles, 50-caliber rifles—the Drug Lords’ weapons would only be limited by finances. Although that doesn’t seem to be much of a issue given lavish financing by U.S. dopers . . .
Sicilia is also correct about the pervasive corruption in Mexico, which has led to oppressive gun control. That’s what’s missing from his five-point plan: restoring the Mexican citizens’ right to keep and bear arms. Removing that right has left the people defenseless against lawlessness and brutality. How ironic is it that America sent jets over Libya to prevent exactly the kind of slaughter that happens every day south of its own border.
Mexico is a poster child for the old bumper sticker “If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.” Mexican troops and police and powerless against the forces of evil; they are too easily corrupted. Only the people can stop this criminal insurgency, which is already spilling over our borders and infecting our cities with lawless and wanton killing.
The ATF got it right (by mistake). The Drug Lords have plenty of guns from “official” channels. I wonder how many of the guns that went south were headed to Mexican citizens trying to defend themselves and their families. America must not stop the flow of guns south. We must increase it—to the right people.
News flash: channel6newsonline.com reports that the Mexican authorities have unearthed twenty more bodies in a mass grave in Durango, Mexico.
