Mexican cartels now use tanks

There are 10 comments on the www.washingtonpost.com story from Jun 7, 2011, titled Mexican cartels now use tanks. In it, www.washingtonpost.com reports that:

U.S. and Mexican border agents have found ramps, tunnels and even a catapult that was used to launch dope over the border fence between Mexico and Arizona.

The appearance of “narco tanks” might seem funny, in a way, but it disguises a serious and deadly arms race among cartels.

"...The Mexican military has discovered that gangsters south of Texas are building armored assault vehicles, with gun turrets, inch-thick armor plates, firing ports and bulletproof glass."

well sounds like they are getting ready for war even if were not.

"....The monsters look like a cross between a handmade assault vehicle used by a Somali warlord and something out of a post-apocalyptic “Mad Max” movie. Complete with battering rams."

“....The popular and lurid “narco blog” Web site said the armored truck could do 60 mph and dump — James Bond style — tire-popping nails or oil slicks to slow down its pursuers
....These behemoths indicate the ingenuity of the cartels in configuring weapons that are extremely effective in urban warfare,” said George Grayson, a professor at the College of William and Mary and a specialist in Mexico’s drug war."

60 mph tank that dam good, but i wonder if it only gets 5 miles per gallon

Meanwhile No. 2

We run taxpayer PAID 'airport security' searching for terrorist agenda among our children, old men, old ladies, constant travelers, MILLIONS OF TAXPAYER AMERICAN CITIZENS,

but leaver our borders UNSECURED for ANY AND ALL TERRORISTS.

We are ruled by neo-MARXISTS in DC!

When, O When, will we have our Americans awake from their slumber of hypnotized retardation? WHEN???

geez you're quick. THAT'S MY POINT. Why would terrorists chose airports when our BORDERS ARE UNDEFENDED?

They're not stupid. We allow MILLIONS of terrorists to enter the country every year!
