FBI: Mexican soldiers used rifles to chase off U.S. Border Patrol


www.foxnews.com

Pointing their rifles, Mexican security forces chased away U.S. authorities investigating the shooting of a 15-year-old Mexican by a U.S. Border Patrol agent on the banks of the Rio Grande, the FBI and witnesses told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
Shortly after the boy was shot, Mexican soldiers arrived at the scene and pointed their guns at the Border Patrol agents across the riverbank while bystanders screamed insults and hurled rocks and firecrackers, FBI spokeswoman Andrea Simmons said.

I guess now Mexico doesn't like America, either. The only neighbor left is Canada.. yeah, they're next.

I guess this would all setup an invasion of Mexico.. I know, you're thinking "right, right, uh huh", but what else could be after Afghanistan, Iraq, and Iran?? Yeah, there's North Korea, but they've really got nukes, and America is scared of a real deal battle like that. Iran is a real deal battle too, but they don't have nukes for religious reasons..

Who needs Mexico when so much of it is already present on our land?

I say fence them off.

Yeah, I am not really concerned that a bunch of government officials even more corrupt and on the take than our own are pissed at us.

Life is not a popularity contest, and if you do care about what others think of you, consider their character first. Some people arent worth impressing.

I have said it before and I will say it again.

Anyone Entering the United States Illegally is a potental Terrorist.



With that point made I will comment.

It is tragic that a child was shot and killed by the US Border patrol, However I am sure there was a reason.

This will cause me some greif and I am sure it will add to foes to my list, but if we as a nation were really concerned about terrorism:

The Border would be closed and anyone not going through a checkpoint would be shot.

That would be Homeland Security.

However we live in a world where we as a population have been kept in a state of fear ever since 1860. ( the rebels or the yanks, the Germans, The Japs, The Russians and now the Terrorist. )

Wake up America.

There will always be some "Boogie man" out there that Goverment claims will get us if we don't trade some Liberty for Security.

That somehow makes a tremendous amount of sense to me. What's wrong with using checkpoints? Just imagine what this would do to gangs and cartels.

After 19 hijackers, 1 shoe bomber, 1 underwear bomber, and numerous cells that have been arrested, Anyone entering the country LEGALLY should also be a potential terrorist.

You say border (singular) when it should be borders (plural) if one is really concerned about terrorism.

I feel from the sources I have read so far, the BP agent was within his rights. Of course, IMO, the whole story is not out yet. Tragic indeed.

In the meantime, cooler heads should prevail from both sides.

The whole world is perceiving the weakness in the American police force to give legitimacy to the dictators, corrupt governments and drug lords. The Mexican system is run by the cartels and then there is debate about who is running the cartel now.

As the world economy shrinks into stagflation of sorts, due to restricted technology and the limit on the so called infinite growth model of economics. The big question is what is going to fuel these small fiefdoms when the drug money dries up and the good days are gone? Hows does one fuel the armies and governments when all economies are in free fall, especially when your export is illegal drugs that aren't being bought. Wonder what the market drop has been since the 90's or even the first half of this decade?

The point is that these tin pot dictators of central and south America are straw that can be blown with the wind. They see blood in the water and I think we are going to be seeing much more of the machete than we care to.

As for Mexico directly I could care less, the problem lies within and the Whitehouse that doesn't care what everyone else does or says about this great country. They are here illegally and if we start choosing the laws we enforce I can think of a few things that I would care not to enforce anymore. THESE PEOPLE ARE CRIMINALS!

The U.S. Border Patrols have reported being forced to withdraw before in light of Mexican Army participation in drug running escorts that go across and into the sovereign borders of the U.S.

The Mexicans can do nothing but lose points by brandishing fire arms at F.B.I. and Border Patrol agents. The eventual result will be the beefing up of state National Guard troops who will begin returning the favor.

If there is one thing the Mexican army and/or law enforcement does not want to do is start trading blows with the U.S.

What they need to do is fix their own damn country to the point where the mass exodus of parasitic illegals will stop.

Choosing which laws to be enforced has always been par for the course. Take adultery, a law that is seldom prosecuted. Yet just yesterday somebody posted a thread where a woman was charged.

As far as criminals, do you consider all people who break misdemeanor laws criminals? After all, the crime you speak of is a misdemeanor.

Elsewhere on the fox site it mentions that the boy was on a most wanted list for smuggling. A shame to see someone so young have to lose their life because of the bad choices they make.

The confrontation occurred Monday night over the body of Sergio Adrian Hernandez Huereka, who died of his wounds beside the column of a railroad bridge connecting Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, and El Paso, Texas.


This is a direct quote from the article.
It was on the Mexico/Texas border.

A 15 yr old isn't a little kid and they are quite capable of throwing a rock hard enough to maim or kill.

Thankfully there is video to give proof of the lies coming out of Mexico about the incident.

There is a lot more cooperation going on between the US and Mexico then most want to believe. Of course, you have to research deep because it is hard to find on your average MSM.


In a politically sensitive operation at the Arizona-Mexico border, U.S. Border Patrol agents and Mexican federal police officers are training together, sharing intelligence and coordinating patrols for the first time.

The goal of the historic partnership: a systematic joint attack on northbound flows of drugs and migrants, and southbound shipments of guns and cash. It is part of a major, unannounced crackdown started in recent months that involves hundreds of U.S. and Mexican officers in the border’s busiest smuggling corridor.


www.propublica.org...


Another advantage to the program, according to Boatright, since the agency's Mexican counterparts began their patrols six weeks ago, violence against U.S. Border Patrol agents has dropped from an average of nine per week to three.


www.abc15.com...


Now, in an unprecedented effort, the U.S. is training Mexican federal police to fight.

Training

Nine men in black fatigues walk steadily forward, holding M4 rifles. Each time they're told there's danger in front of them, they fire.

The threat is a target on the wall of a warehouse in Nogales, Ariz. The rifles are modified to shoot cartridges similar to paintballs. The students are Mexican federal police officers; the teachers are U.S. border patrol agents.

This tactical urban training is new and necessary for the Mexican officers. Some fire rifles as though they are hunting deer.

The threat from drug cartels is so serious, the U.S. instructors, their translators and the Mexican trainees asked us not to use their names. One of the trainees — a 14-year veteran — says he's having trouble keeping up with the enemy.

Well if the border agents are harassed this way, why on earth is the local swat team not called to provide them cover? Shoot a few of them and they will stop pointing their little guns over our border. If they keep it up then post a bunch of Army snipers on the border, they will get the hint then. When their hommie gets ripped in half by a 50 cal they will run home to hug their mommositas.

Friend got busted with personal drugs the other day.....Thats a misdemeanor that carries jail time, these drug mules aren't even getting jail time. CRIMINALS!

Hell, the federal government is putting up signs warning the American public of the drug smugglers and their territory. The argument that these are people coming for jobs doesn't hold up with the new unemployment numbers, there are no jobs. If anything they are coming for security because Mexico is a corrupt third-world hell hole AND GETTING WORSE. Even the federal government is afraid of the drug gangs and warning the public they can't do anything about it.

“If someone in your line gets hit with an IED, 360 rotational fire. You kill every mother#er on the street." Myself and Josh and a lot of other soldiers were just sitting there looking at each other like, “Are you kidding me? You want us to kill women and children on the street?”


Ethan McCord

No, they are not kidding, as you know, Ethan. Everybody shouts "Kill, kill, kill!"
