Mexico to send more troops to besieged city


www.reuters.com

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (Reuters) - Mexico is sending up to 5,000 new troops and federal police to the country's most violent city, where law and order is on the brink of collapse in a war between gangs supplying drugs to the United States.

The army said on Thursday the deployment could take the number of soldiers and federal police to over 7,000 in Ciudad Juarez, which is across the U.S. border from El Paso, Texas.

Sheesh....What a mess.

And now with this "war" supposedly spilling over into our territory, I wonder how long until OUR troops are summoned? I wonder how many members the cartels have, as opposed to the troops being sent in?

Will this be the "test" that insiders were saying the new admin would be put through?

Something to think about I suppose...

I think it would be good training for the marines. Send them in.
There is no reason why the military can't protect the border.

Our policy makers the last 40 years or so didn't take the issue of illegal immigration seriously... now we're paying the price for it. I think there needs to be some security measures. Something.
