What took them so long. Didn't they have enough proof before now, to enlist the help of our military capability. No one law enforcement department can protect the US without help from our military. Thank God they are finally helping BP. And when BP cannot control human smuggling and drug smuggling that's been going on for years, you would have thought reserve troops should have been called up long before now.Sophisticated military helicopter with infarred capabilty should have been deployed long ago. Hope it helps. Closing our Border for a while would also help get a handle. Every 18 wheeler needs to be checked as well.

They will send "ONE"...

You guys DO know that we have hundreds of thousands of US troups protecting South Korea's border from North Korea?!!! Please make this make sense. Yes, we do need the helicoper, but we need some boots on the ground as well. Did ya read the one about the football length "sophisticated" tunnel they just found outside Nogales? I understand they have foundt at least 70 overall...

and look what we have on our southern border. this should be reason enough not to try and control our guns unless someone wants these folks to not face armed citizens if they try anything stupid.

something is wrong with the economy the way it is jobless rate high and terrorists right next door then we are not fully secure.

mexico has not changed when it comes to letting folks in who pay them. by the looks of things hezbollah could be where the cartels have been getting their tactics from.

kind of shines a light on our gov knowing these folks are there yet not securing our borders enough to keep them out. we are at war and the war on terror and we have a known terrorist group a few miles from us,what does our leaders do,look the other way.

You forgot the part about having news black outs so that the public isn't aware of this! America is the most lied to nation in the "civilized" world!!!!

I remember a few years back when a certain strain of flu came from mexico. Unlike other flu's where we name the strain after the country it came from, the news NEVER referred to it as the mexican flu. Do you remember that...about 3 yrs ago?

Not unless they actually let them do their job. We don't need anymore American patriots put in prison, like they did Ramos and Compean.

Maybe it will come to all out war. If terrorist's are aligning with Mexihell, I hope intel will bring it to the forefront of our War on Terror. A war with Mexihell has always been in my mind, a possibility. I do no consider them our ally whatsoever. I know a lot of Military and ex Military that would like to bomb them into Hell. But terrorism at our border might bring it to a head. Cartels are as dangerous as any middle eastern terrorist. Why the Gov. doesn't see it worries me.
