In 2005, Mexican drug cartels, comprised of former Mexican military personnel trained in terror tactics at Ft. Benning, Georgia took back seized drugs from US Border Patrol - at gun point. This took place in Sanderson, Texas near Big Bend. The State Dept. issued notices to all Texas law enforcement. In a separate press release, the State Dept. admitted to the State Dept's knowledge of where the cartel members had been trained.
This was the real urgency behind building the border fence. So, now that we're in a full-scale war along our southern border, how is some stupid fence going to solve it?

In 2005, Mexican drug cartels, at gun point took back seized drugs from US Border Patrol in Sanderson, Texas. The State Dept. issued an e-mail to Texas law enforcement regarding this incident. In a separate message to law enforcement the State Dept. admitted that the cartels began employing former Mexican military who had been trained in terror tactics at SOA/WHINSEC at Fort Benning, Georgia. This was the real urgency behind building the border fence.
So, now that we have a full-scale war on our southern border, how is some stupid fence going to solve the problem?

and seeing this:
"And the situation across Mexico is deteriorating so fast that retired five-star Gen. Barry McCaffrey warned in a new assessment of a refugee catastrophe that could devastate border cities."
I see a big error. The Army's five star generals were General George C. Marshall, General Douglas MacArthur, General Dwight D. Eisenhower, and General Omar N. Bradley.
McCaffrey is a four star.

Arm the peons.
The people of Mexico have no defense against armed crooks and an armed corrupt government. They have never stood a chance.
We can't change their government, only their people can.
