Obama should send US Troops to all Major US Cities to Arrest the American Drug Dealers. They will also be shooting soldiers as well as policemen in the streets just like in Juarez. But this will never happen the U.S. will just let the US Drug Problem get Bigger and Bigger until it is really out of Control and Under the Mexican Drug Cartels Rule.

You know that sounds like a great idea but law enforcement already knows that when you take a drug dealer off the street 5 more try to take over and battle for the territory leading to more murder, crime, and who know what else.

The drug war is a catastrophic failure.

But 1200 troops at the border is a good start. Maybe Illegals and drug smugglers will realize that their borrowed time is expiring.

The presence of armed US Soldiers on the rural border is a welcomed event.

The Ft Hancock -Tornillo gap in the fence needs reinforcement,
never you mind the unwelcomed handcuffing remarks made by el paso mayor cook; he's informed.

Who's writting this bull? Pancho Villa was a Rebel to the mexican Army, not part of it! He raided Columbus because of a Guns purchase that went bad. He was using the guns to fight the mexican army. He was the first terrorist to kill americans. He had an army of Bandidos that were paid by what they stole. Pershing went after him with our first mobilized military,driving trucks and motorcycles and they all broke down. the real mexican army surounded Pershing's army because they had nobody to repair the vehicals. Yes the white flag went up ( surrender !!) and 30 Texas Rangers went into mexico ,Guns Blazing and rescued the whole damn American Army. Pershing was a fool,trying to show off his new motorized army with untrained troops. Shortly after ,the USA joined in WW1,The US Gov. never gave credit to the Texas Rangers for saveing them because it was such an embarassment, so please stop trying to change history. It happened and Pancho Villa was a terrorist and a General of his own army of Bandidos. Mexico did not invade and murder the people in Columbus. The US was selling him guns for the Revolution, they took his money and didn't give him the guns and thats why He invaded Columbus and massacred the town where he paid for the guns. Tell the truth and don't change what really happened. We should all be embarrased for the underhanded dealings and lies our US Gov has done in the past and present.

This timeline failed to mention that the young man shot at the Marines first before they fired back in self defense.

Unfortunately it happened but if you shoot at Marines, they shoot back.

Drug Czar Kerlikowske is a Liar

At the same time that President Obama's drug czar, Gil Kerlikowske, was telling the Irish drug czar and officials: "We’ve talked about a ‘war on drugs’ for 40 years, since President Nixon. I ended the war..."

The Obama White House was actually announcing the escalation and militarization of the Mexican border: "President Obama will deploy 1,200 National Guard troops and request an extra $500 million to secure the Mexican border..."

Military troops at the border?
<!--StartFragment--> The history of Mexican U.S. conflicts is deep rooted in distrust although we are both American and Mexican native-born Chicanos.
It is with great concern that this action can and will be seen as “Aggressive” by many on both side of the Border.
Is This Militarization of Border for Security and if so for whom? Is it to stop the flow of illegal Drugs, or to stop the sale of military assault firearms to Mexicans from U.S. citizens?
Is it to put ALL Chicanos / Mexicans on notice that our civil right will be ignored on an Apartheid Style?
Many Chicanos believe it may well be the beginning of the so-called “RACE WAR” against ALL people of color!
So as it Arizona goes…. will the rest of the 49 States Go Too?
Taking the lead from the “Great-Racist-State of Arizona?
Has Arizona become the DMZ The War Front?
Yes we all agree that the issue must be addressed no one else than native born Chicanos want to deal with this issue more we have witness our brother/sisters being victimized and the economic victimization of the indigenous community the Mexican American, Chicanos community.
However we don’t support the discrimination and oppression against hard working people, family’s and native born. As we know the “Gringo” Community has all ways seen us, as “all the same” they can’t tell the difference.“We all look alike”. Never the less it is not ok for this hate in a land of laws and a country that claims a higher state of humanity.
It is a Political “Smoke Screen” to take attention off the BP Oil disaster? Politics as usual?
This is the wrong move - too little too late.
Many Chicanos, Mexicans, Latinos and people of color are seeing this Militarization move as the beginning of the so-called race WAR that the Right-Wing Republicans, Nazi’s, Klan, have been plotting to incite for decades. Arizona s the “war front”.
If one good thing has now been established is that The Republication Party has lost any hope for future support of the Chicano, Latino Voters. But maybe this is a “blow-off” or challenge to us. My Grama would it’s ok Mijo – if they don’t like us…Were particular too”
So is the making of the Race War has it begun?
As the Obama administration sends troops to the border. IT WILL REFLECT A SENCE OF DESPERATION to the rest of the world.
It will be seen as an aggressive political move designed by Republicans fascists.
If indeed they arrest and target criminals, drug dealers – and then they should also arrest and rehab all the consumers who buy the drugs.
Here is our list of people the military should detain, card, and arrest:
1. Employers 2. Drug Dealers, 3. Drug consumers 4. Banks whom “clean” monies.
Arizonans who murder innocent migrants who come only to work.
If it is not administered implemented with clear intent.
I hope our president will rethink this over. Obama needs to be more defined, clear on his next move (The World Is Watching), and so is our Voting Mexican American Latinos. We are no longer a “swing vote”.
So lets see, is this to protect the US from Mexico/Mexicans or Chicano Mexicans from Arizona? Will we see military alerts levels such as:“Mexi-Con 1, 2, 3”
To militarize our border is to perhaps stop the Arizona Minute-Men, Police and right wing Neo Nazis from killing more innocent immigrants.
“Seal The Border?”
What about trade and what about the regular people who cross back and fourth every day” legally? This makes no sense.
We People of Peace need to hold our political servants accountable to a higher standard (THE US CONSTATUTION).
Papers Please?
