Jul 20, 2010 Read more: CW11 New York WPIX-TV 12

President Barack Obama's administration pledged better accounting of its billion-dollar program to help Mexico and Central America fight the drug war, chastened by a congressional report describing such slow implementation that the Mexican government has had to buy some equipment on its own while waiting for funds.

$400 million in aid to Mexico.

Barack Obama: can't protect USA's borders

Janet Napolitano: can't protect USA's borders

We need to elect and appoint people who WILL protect our borders.

OUT with democrats. A vote for a democrat is a vote to weaken our border protection.

Here's the real story with the "weakened border protection". It's a 4 minute youtube video. Very revealing...

5 Billion this month to Iraq to protect their borders and baby sit Shia vs Sunni.

Hows that's Shia Liberation going?, you right wing nuts. Did you notice we also fight Shia Militias that you demanded we liberate.

I bet you wish that 5 Billion Dollar Monthly check could be used for U.S. border protection.

What a joke. The joke is being played on the USA. The so called war on drugs is a joke. All congress has to do, is to open their eyes and see the violence on our borders. It's not working people!

So, sorry the Mexican Government had to spend some of their own money - they can buy their own crap to fight the war on drugs. Americans are sick of it. Tax payer money wasted again by our Government.

No, helicopters! Stop this insane waste of money, close the border.

The so called "War on Drugs" from it's institution during the Nixon administration, is a complete failure. We need to quit trying to change peoples behavior patterns. A certain segment of the population will do drugs no matter how you look at it. Let them do it legally. We've wasted trillions of dollars on this with no results. If anything, the situation in Mexico should be a wakeup call to all those that are in favor of the "drug war".

See the link in my post above - Bush and his administration aggressively tried to completely dissolve our border with Mexico. They will still pursue the North American Union; they will just do it in the dark.

What a joke, this problem just started when Obama was elected? Bush was to busy starting an unnecessary war in Iraq to do much to take care of this problem.
