Well here goes....hopefully a few in here who care about facts over reasons to hate Mexicans will read this.What's the point in driving a Chevy Suburban with U.S. diplomatic plates? There's nothing undercover about that.
It would make more sense to use rental cars--even armored ones--than this. Who's going after the moles in ICE?
The loss of servicemen is a travesty but those who serve do so understanding the risk. Sadly we have one more hero today. A few obvious comments.
They were in an armored car with diplomatic plates and no guns (because of course guns are useless here against cartels with the full arsenal of fully automatic weapons). They had the weapons they needed....a blindado that would stop all of those bullets and the american flag on their car. These thugs were so low level it is ridiculous. The real cartels would never never never have gone near them. My guess is that they are already dead at the hands of their cartel leaders for their stupidity.
So if you think that no one in the service of your country is smart enough to have considered the fact they were completely visible.....you really could not have thought far. You are safer here being visible rather than undercover. That same truck, with no plates and two guys of that age in it would be MUCH MUCH MUCH more dangerous because they would look like a cartel car.
O Janet, of course the US has to be careful with statements, their statements are not for your benefit they have to consider the protection of their interests abroad, namely our men and women who work in the best interest of the US in this country, in any and all agencies that are working in Mexico and in fact most of the countries in the world. Kid yourself not, retaliation will come and come quietly but a public word war could endanger the lives of millions of Americans who live here.
What I struggle with is that if no one was here you would complain we need people here, when there are people here you complain we shouldn't be involved.
I am glad you are concerned for your country and that some are concerned for the safety of those who represent your interests abroad. This agent was killed by violent gangs of ruthless criminals .... not by Mexicans.
Bombing Mexico is ridiculous, leaving Mexico is inadvisable. Working to find a solution here is the answer. Supporting Mexican interests is supporting our own interests...plain and simple. If you ostrich you will be shot in the ass in no time. And those wounds can be fatal too.
If you want to have a good rage on a topic try this one. I am a republican and I support my rights to arm myself. I can almost guarantee you that the murder weapon was initially bought in the USA. Americans who sell guns, like AK47's and AR15's to people they KNOW (don't kid a kidder) will resell it to people who will likely take it out of the US, threaten all our rights and liberties and have the blood of innocent people...innocent Americans on their hands. they are traitors to our country and should be prosecuted under federal law and if found guilty executed for treason.
Time for the NRA to shut up, I for one am tired at looking back at weapons traitors in my country have sold our enemies.
