You reap what you sow......
At some point and soon I fear the SHTF will take place.
In Mexico the drug cartels have so much money and power that the police and government workers work for them in fear of their life and that of their families.
This is spilling into Texas and other boarder states where drug routes are established.Even the news papers are afraid to print the news for fear of reprisals.
These cartels are well trained in military tactics and have the weapons to support such tactics.
US boarder patrol has been warning our government for years what was going to happen and have begged for more funds to fight this war but when it comes time to cut spending this is one of the 1st places that see's a cut
We are fighting a war in the middle east to protect oil reserves needed by Great Britten and the US (Study the history of this part of the world after WW2 and you will see oil is why we are there)
My point is we have our neighbors to the south with weak and corrupt governments that can not or will not do anything about these cartels.
Since the media is afraid to print much on this subject for fear of reprisal our government acts like "No News is Good News" and allows American citizens to be killed and held hostage in these boarder towns.
IMO we are fighting the wrong war.
Our government is more worried about protecting big business interest in the middle east and less concerned for it citizens here at home.
live by the sword......
die by the sword.......
another thug will move in and take his place,
business as usual
The same goes with a gun.
If you play the game long enough eventually you gonna loose. The thing with the cartels that MadMo is ranting about is true I rant about it every chance I get to who ever I can get to listen. There are times however that the media needs to be kept in the dark or forcibly made to not report on something. Are the cartels as bad as people say they are. YES! They were trained by the members of our special forces to fight the same way our boys fight. The way I understand it is that MS 13 was started by some of these people that we trained And now they are guns for hire to the different cartels. I think if I were in the same seat B-Rock is in now, my first unofficial official action would be to start sending SEALs and DELTA in to take care of the cartels on a quiet need to know basis. And if that don't work I'd tell whatever corrupt bastard that they call "president" at the time that he has 2 months to get the cartels under control or we (the us military) are going to do it for you. By "do it for you" I mean we are going to give the boys and girls in uniform what they need overseas and the rest is going to our border to "help" Mexico with the cartels. I'm going to stop ranting now before I really get off topic.
These things happen everyday in the US too. Mostly by gang bangers who don't know how to be discreet, but none-the-less it is the same principle.
I believe it is actually the Zeta's that we trained. I saw an episode of Gangland on them last night...nevertheless.
Agreed. You get involved in the mafia and you know what can happen to you at any time. That's the risk. Too bad, so sad....
I think the US should stop training Mexican forces since they cant or wont figure out whos a good guy or a bad guy. Mexico can hire our private contractors to handle up on cartels and the like.
But allot of the guys in the private contract field would be swayed by the money as well. Not all of them I'm certainly not trying to imply anything. But the money is what breeds crooked cops on both sides of the border, I think the best way to handle the cartels is to send in men from another area completely have them hit a targeted site and then split for the hills. If you start moving officers down to the border region then that is where their families will be and the week spot of most fighting men and women I would think would be their families. Because they can't protect everything all at the same time. I'm just throwing my opinions out here tho.
