“Hundreds” of Mexican police and army engaged in a running gun battle with members of what they to believe to be the Arellano Felix drug cartel.
People wonder why I’m concerned about the BATFE giving the Mexican authorities access to E-Trace data? Their crime is out of control, they blame the US for automatic weapons being imported over their border (which is just a flat lie), and it appears that they’re teetering on the brink of a small shooting war between the cartels, smugglers, and the erstwhile authorities.
The issue is that an open shooting war between the Mexican authorities and the cartels would most certainly spill over into violence on our side of the border; hell in many places there’s been an open state of hostilities for years anyway.
I saw a bit about this in the Dallas Morning News. We’re giving 1.4 billion to Mexico in an aid package for “anti-drug operations” training and support. And they blame it on legal purchases of weapons along the Southern US border. It’s enough to make you want to buy your own island and establish a Randian utopia.
