Well, you are probably reading to much into it and getting emotional.
The connection to the war on terror is that some members of Al Qaeda have been meeting with MS13 gangs in Mexico and further south. The implication is that Al Qaeda might be trying to use the groups smuggling connections to move terrorists, weapons, or explosives into the United States.
Of course, this is the imperialistic way that the US has been taking since at least WW2 (if not before), so no one has to be surprised... but still I think everyone of you should stop for a minute and ask themselves that question: What rights do WE have as a nation to get into another countrie's business to directly reshape it's security/economic policies and to even intervene in some ways into their politics??? Who are WE to do such things? What gives Americans (or canadians, or britons, and so on) the JUSTICE to tell others how to deal with their public issues... to even do the job for the others, and this without even asking?
