Yes I do.

And you may want to drop the crack pipe for a sec to get some clarity. Also: Care to comment on the topic? Oh yes, you dont do that, you just spread hate...

Where do you get off telling anyone else that they are spreading hate. I have seen many of your anti-Islam, anti-Iran, anti-anything other than the US plenty of times on here spewing your own brand of hate filled rhetoric.

As far as this post is concerned, this is a big issue. I am sure that the aid offered is much appreciated, but to many people the idea of an armed detachment from a foreign military running around without escort on American soil is cause for alarm. This government has failed its citizens several times now. They failed us on 9-11, they failed us when they drug us into Iraq under false pretences, they failed us when they all but gave up on the hunt for osama (aka US gov tool), and they most certainly failed us in regards to hurricane Katrina. Now there are combat ready troops from another country on our soil. I realize that they are not here for combat. Let me ask you this. What do you think will happen when an American is shot by one of these foreign troops?

Your concerns and fears are well put. My point is that this is NOT the fault of the Mexican government. This is a problem that the US government has either not thought out well or has though out and deems safe. Why blame people who are helping? Why bring in illegal immigration problems when it is not those same people? I understand there are fears and concerns but that should not lead people to be irrational and xenophobic.

its pretty sad seen what kind of person are you. you should read news and see tv so you have the reality of why mexican army is on your country. they dont carry any guns and they wont be a tread for you guys.
those mexican 200 troops in "american soil" are enginers , doctors and nurses, that had been already in such problems ( disasters ) before, they are there just to try to help becouse they do really know how to deal in this situation, but hell why i am wasting my time trying to explain to people like you , so far i see you prefer to see more of your connationals death than to see a foreing troop helping them.
SHAME ON YOU... Tell me that are you doing to help ???
Nothing !!! besides been seating writting bs on your pc , get you fat ass moving and save american , that really are suffering becouse FEMA doesn't know how to deal whit this awfull situation.:dn

Uh, did you actually READ the email???

LAREDO, Texas -- A Mexican army convoy of nearly 200 people crossed the border into the United States on Thursday to bring aid to victims of Hurricane Katrina, becoming the first Mexican military unit to operate on U.S. soil since 1846.

Maybe you were worried about other things and just haven't started noticing, but a LOT of countries (including Canada) sent military units here to help out in Louisiana.

And really, what are they going to do with 200 men... take over Harrah's Casino?

The Mexican government already was planning another 12-vehicle aid convoy for this week. It has sent a Mexican navy ship toward the Mississippi coast with rescue vehicles and helicopters.

It's anybody's guess whether the shakeup in FEMA means this time helicopters and ships will be accepted. I've read reports where FEMA refused US helicopters and ships as well as units from other countries.

But Alex Jones is reporting from several sources the troops in Texas are armed! From :
Two separate credible sources known to Alex Jones have reported that armed combat ready Mexican troops have entered Texas.

Forgive me, but I've seen prisonplanet's news before, and they put a very heavy spin on it to be THE EVIL NWO IS TAKING OVER EVERYTHING!!! Somehow their dire predictions and scare-news never pan out (for most cases) but that doesn't keep them from shrieking ALIENS INVADE FROM MEXICO when a contingent of troops arrives to help.

We send military troops to help countries when they've been devastated with a natural disaster. Other countries do, too. It isn't strange to find Aussies, Brits, Americans, Mexicans, Spaniards, and French troops (among others) at an earthquake disaster or other world problem.

So it's okay for us to send troops to help dying people elsewhere but it's not okay for us to accept troops to help OUR dying people?

Nonsense, I say!!

The vehicles were not being escorted by the US army or any other government vehicles and the vehicles were festooned with insignia reading 'Mexico MP's' and the Mexican flag.

This should have raised HUGE red flags and screamed FAKE!!!!! for you.

You see, the Mexican Army speaks Spanish. They wouldn't be driving anything with "Mexico MP" on it.

Their brassards say "PM" (not "MP") and are pretty distinctive:

And it's "Republic of Mexico" on their vehicles -- not Mexico. But liars wouldn't know that.

The following Louisiana authorities must be alerted about the threat of armed foreign troops brought into the country by the Bush Administration.


That's right. All the people you suggested calling and shrieking to are welcoming those troops along with other foreign troops to help the unpleasant tasks of recovery. Screaming that 200 armed men have invaded our country is only going to make you look VERY silly.

They were INVITED to come to bring aid to hurricane victims. They are there to HELP your people. They are military units of coarse they're armed, get over it! They're not going to launch some kind of take over. Be thankful that they are helping you in a time of need. People can be helped and saved by the aid they are bringing so I think it's worth it.

I agree with Ponderosa
Heck with the way some of the people where acting in that area It would be stupid not to have some type of defensive weapons.

As for anyone worried about Mexico trying anything
Theres about as much chance of that as Canada invading the US.

It is truely sad to see Americans outraged over foreign military units in their nation helping during your time of need. I guess for many Americans it's all about having a "US first" mentality with little value on international friendship and cooperation.

Are you as outraged when American military units are deployed to help inside other nations during disasters? Do you view that as an affront to that nation when your armed troops show up to try to help them in their time of need? If not, why the double standard?

You will only see a few like this.

I think I speak for FAR more Americans when I say "thank you" to the MANY countries that have sent aide to us.

It is wonderful to see even countries we are at odds with sending help.

There may be hope for this planet after all.

OK point taken .but if they are letting mexico 's army in with guns who's next? what if Iran offers to send help? How can you use guns to clean up?

Self protection. I doubt that one convoys of people made up MOSTLY of Doctors, Nurses and Engineers is a speakhead to retake the Alamo :shk:

And Iran and Cuba and North korea all offered aid

And actually one country booted US ships out to the international limit during the tsunami disaster.

But I would direct you this thread:

I agree with many of the posters here. They are armed to protect their people for whom their government is sending. They are giving us aide in time of crisis. I dont think they want thier people subject to the kind of wildlife which is known to run the streets in many American citys. I do not blame them for this. Their concerns are justified as evidenced in some of the things known to have happened in New Orleans.
We as Americans often enter other Nations to bring aid and sustinance.. bringing our weapons also. Now it is out turn. Suck it up people.
I dont worry so much about a foreign nation overtaking us as I do our Lawmakers giving our nation away or even taking our guns away.
For a foreign nation to overtake this Country by force of like way beyond stupid. Even Abe Lincoln knew this way back before the civil war.
The concerns of the Mexican Government for thier people and the aid they are sending are well justified.
