I think the biggest problem is that our own governmentwill not help.
Could you imagin how this would be 50 years ago? I have family in Texas. I know for a fact that 50 years ago it wouldn't have been "wheres the government to help?", it would be" boys grab your rifles, it's time to protect our own."
Where has that mentality gone? Where are the proud Americans to take it upon themselves to do what is right? Does nobody have any honor any more? Does nobody no how to stand up for their own country? Are Americans so far gone that his is a null issue with you all????
This is outrageous.

In October, Mexican prosecutors reported that the attorney general's office had been infiltrated by informants for the Beltran Leyva drug cartel and that those people might have spies within the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
The violence is spilling over America's doorstep. Criminals are crossing from Ciudad Juarez into neighboring El Paso, Texas, kidnapping people and taking them back to Mexico. Of the 5,600 people who were murdered in Mexico in 2008, 1,600 were killed in Juarez.
if the US offials stop getting involved with the drug lords then maybe there won't be a problem....who knows
Most people in Mexico don't even hear about the drug cartel things unless they live in a big or border city. Media propaganda.

Although I wouldn't put much past the wreckless abandon of the Government, especially George Bush, I doubt if the National Guard was removed from State Command.
That wouldn't fly.
What I think actually happened was that Bush got the consent of the various Governors to deploy said troops overseas.
