...oh, shyttt I forgot. They don't teach our kids American greatness anymore in schools. Plus, Mexican Army vs. Mexican Navy is simply 'Battle of the Bribes'. (check your TeleMundo listings for airing times)

Instead of sending almost two billion dollars to Mexico to fight the narco's. Why not hire more elite people into the Mexican Navy and pay them enough that they will be less likely to be bought off.

With the help of US intelligence and the Navy they could get rid of many of the army sell outs and actually accomplish more.

Every time US intelligence finds a big fish, he disappears within minutes of his capture. Obviously warned by the sell outs in the police and military, and higher ups in Government. A group of 300 highly trusted Navy type Mexican seals working under and with US intelligence could do some serious damage. But they would only answer and give information to the President and to the top guy in the special unit prior to a raid.

Pay these guys well for what they do, and for their skills and working under dangerous situations. No one except the President would know who they are.

Costs are less and results would be better.

The Navy as I have read in the papers in Mexico are truly the best in Mexico, bar none.
