Hey Mexico,keep your kids on your side and tell them to quit throwing rocks.

Sneaking into someone elses country is not nice.

Raise your children right.

Thank you,

Ok, let's have an agreement, they stop illegal immigration of their nationals, smuggling(both human and drug), and incursions by their military onto U.S. territories, then we'll stop using tear gas.

Saying the use of tear gas was unacceptable under any circumstances, the ministry sent a letter to the U.S. Embassy requesting the investigation and said it was also setting up talks with U.S. officials through its consular network.

wow maybe 50 caliber lock and load would stop the attacks Mexican government cannot seem to stop? They should be glad it is only tear gas and not h.e. coming from those 80 mm grenade launchers...

If you attack my border guards across that border, expect to receive something incoming.. I would not use tear gas myself. The absolute arrogance what do they demand impunity to attack?

sample reply

To the president of Mexico

If your citizens or thier guests ( invited or not) launch any attack across our border we will respond by replying with the full force of our military to take positive control of that border.

You have been warned.. the next response will be o your head for not policing your own population at this border.

ps as tyo your pettey complaints stuff it!

With sincere reguards as a powerful neighbor wh is tired of your irresponsible governance of your own country,
George......

I agree! They don't expect consequences for their actions. Typical.

I as a US citizen, do 100% agree. We have seen tear gas is not effective. Time to go BIGGER!
105's should do nicely.

The kids who are throwing rocks and fire bombs are probably being paid by the smugglers.

yes TOC they do seem to be playing "the bandit" attracting attention so that someone else can use the diverted attention and resourses.. the border patrol is well aware of and takes steps to secure anyway. Meanwhile they have a right to respond to attacks across the border and as a citizen I demand that they continue to respond!

Guess our surrender is all they think is reasonable:

"MEXICO CITY (Reuters)- Mexico is demanding that U.S. Border Patrol agents stop using tear gas to protect themselves against increased attacks as they try to keep illegal immigrants from entering the United States"
close

I have tried to comment on this for five minutes and keep deleting my post. It is simply put an Outrage! "We have every right and Obligation to protect our borders... that 15 year old was assaulting our Border Officers and obstructing the enforcement of a sovereign nations borders. Our nation should Demand the Immediate arrest of the deliquent!

oh I wish it was possible to get the link to the video of the damage rocks did to our border agents. It really would add perspective to this dialog.

This is just another attempt by the corrupt moronic mexican government to deflect us away from the true intentions that they have. They think that if they whine and snivel that we won't be able to see that they have declared war on this country. They have done so, several times in the past.

Lets give them what they want - let these morons in for a bigger response - stop using tear gas - use live ammo. They asked for it !!

How kind of you to say. Seems I was the target of two little twits who managed to have me banned from Topix although I am not really sure how they did that because my language hardly measures up to that of the Rose. I also believe strongly in the freedom of speech and it never occured to me that I should ban WIR for voicing her opinions. I guess you could say I changed my mind and use that flag button generously.

Yes, I have email and a few topix friends that I talk to from time to time. Should you be in one of their communication circles, feel free to request my address.

Glad you are feeling better.
