All citizens and American Citizens are on lockdown.

It's on Fox news right now live. I try to find it on the net as it's not on there yet.

Edit to change the title. This has not been colaborated with any other source than Fox News and Gerado at Large.

It's a lockdown, but they are not calling it Martial Law yet, but everyone is calling it Martial Law.

Yea - although I have never experienced this -
It would seem that a lockdown would constitute martial law.
All very unpleasant - to say the least.

They are just playing word games right now. It's Martial Law and that is why Fox is calling it that.

The thing is, whether you're a government or an American cable news channel, you don't want to start throwing out terms like "Martial Law" unless it's really Martial Law. It is irresponsible to do so and can actually make a bad situation horrendously worse.

It's going to turn into a bloody war now. Not that it already was not bad.
The Military is trying to stake a claim. The problem is that they number about 100 thousand troops. The drug Cartel is right at 100 thousand troops. They will come back at them hard and try to take a town or two away from the Military.
They are heavily armed and won't give up.

That's the first streaming website that actually lets me in Australia view American channels.

Most come up with a warning saying I'm overseas and won't play, but this one does.

So a huge thankyou to wiredamerican for that link.

I'm watching now. It doesn't too serious at the moment. They are talking about tunnels.

Looks like this is not the first time they have had Martial Law down there.

OK, caught this in recent post so I haven't seen the whole show. Just switched to fox.

First thoughts---"Geraldo here we go". He's not your typical Fox, right leaning anchor though. He's, however, known as a bit of a sensationalist.

The current issue on the border, is one of the most important current crises facing us. Can the Mexican gov/military restore order? What do we do if they can't.

Regardless of my first thoughts, the situation is a fluid, important, and dangerous situation.

We heard other people say Martial Law, not Gerado in interviews on both sides of the boader.

Obama, Mullen discuss violence in Mexico
updated 4 minutes ago
www.cnn.com...

(CNN) -- President Obama and Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Adm. Michael Mullen on Saturday discussed how the U.S. military can assist Mexico in addressing growing violence from drug cartels, according to a military official.

Mexican authorities discovered three headless bodies in Tijuana on Tuesday.

The conversation, which Obama initiated within hours of Mullen's return to the United States from a visit to Mexico City, underscores the growing concern with which the United States views the situation.

"The president was eager to get the chairman's observations on what he found out," the official told CNN.

The president expressed interest in military capabilities that the U.S. has that could help Mexican forces, including intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance technology, the official said.

Mexico's military and police have been embroiled in increasingly violent clashes with cartels, which are battling among themselves for control over an ever-growing market in the United States.

This week, a U.S. citizen was among the three decapitated bodies found in Tijuana, Mexican authorities said Saturday. Growing drug violence has made beheadings in Tijuana, Juarez and other Mexican towns more commonplace over the past year.
