than fix the obvious problems of poverty and corruption which is what is driving them out. id like 5 minutes with vinny fox to give him a piece of my
mind. why mexicans are so loyal to that government ill never understand. as feisty as they are here in the US i would think by now they would have
revolted against the nobles in their own country and taken it back for themselves.
That's quite a symplistic opinnion. First of all, i'm a Mexican and i'm glad the Navy modernizes, just in case you don't know, every single day
Cuban Mig's violates the Mexican Air space between Cuba and Yucatán, a few months ago, they seized a Mexican fishing vessel supported with patrol
boats and charged the crew of human smuggling even when they had nobody on board and were sailing in Mexican waters. In the last couple years Cuba and
Venezuela has been harassment any statement of our govt, acusing it of being following US policies.
A patrol of this planes would drive this guys out of the border.
It never has been a problem with US planes crossing the border, there are indeed programs of cooperation in the interception of jet smugglers that
can't be reached by the F-5's due to their range.
On the other hand, we have jobs here in México, but as goods and services, they follow the Law of offer and demand, if you have better salaries, then
many people will decide to leave. And the one and single reason because of Mexicans go to your country, is because they GET HIRED. I don't
understand why some of you are so paranoic about an invasion, a future attack or whatever, let me tell you something, the first people in defend your
soil in an emergency will be the Mexican Americans. we have a proverb: "no le des patadas al pesebre", wich means: don't kick the feeder recipient
(don't know the word for pesebre). Ask that to 50K Mex-Am foot soldiers in Irak.
