Hitmen kill 25 in bloodiest day on Mexico-U.S. border



CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (Reuters) – The murders of 25 people by suspected drug hitmen on the U.S.-Mexico border on Thursday was the bloodiest day in almost three years in an area gripped by an escalating drug war, officials said on Friday.

Gunmen burst into several houses in Ciudad Juarez, across the border from El Paso, Texas, and shot people accused of working for rival drug gangs, a spokesman for the Chihuahua state attorney general's office said on Friday morning.

Four bystanders were also killed on Thursday as a convoy of hitmen shot its way out of traffic in Ciudad Juarez, local newspaper El Diario said

basis, if the Mexican Law Men are not corrupt.

people's homes in the middle of the night
and assassinating them.

Unfortunately theres enough ex-military and ex-special operations personnel on the cartels payroll for them to be trained and competant at close quarter operations.

very true
but that doesn't account for the lack of
intervention on the part of Law Enforcement.

When you have police, and they are a non-issue
then there is a serious problem.

But at least their leader can eat a steak
in the White House on my tax dollar.

Juarez has an estimated population of 1.5 million people.

en.wikipedia.org...

The police force for Juarez in 2008 was approximately 800 officers! Hard to maintain security in a city that size with only 800 officers.

Since then approximately 7500 additional security forces have been, or were expected to be sent to reinforce the police.

The Juarez Cartel is estimated to have 1000 foot soldiers. Add to this their allies, The Zetas, The Tijuana Cartel and the Beltran-Leyva Cartel, and then consider their enemies, Gulf Cartel, Sinaloa Cartel, La Familia Michoacana, and I suppose some others not mentioned on wikipedia, I imagine there's quite a formidable army to fight against law enforcement, while they fight against each other.

In the 1970's, my sister and some friends traveled to Baja for a vacation. They were accosted by some bandidos.

Now the bandidos are on steroids, as it were.

Juarez is, for all intents and purposes, a war zone. Poverty, fear, bribery and corruption, traitors, suspected traitors, it's just one big friggin mess.

Mad Max scenario on crack!

Therein is the problem. Mexico would collapse if not for three streams of dollars into the country, tourism, remittances, and drug money. If you government cracked down on all three--strong warnings to tourists would be one--we would soon have a rag-tag army of poor storming over the border. Basically, it would be war against starving people.

As long as we let the immigrants come in and send money home, the tourists to travel there with their dollars and allow the drugs to come up here to generate the money that then goes south, MexIco will stay afloat on non-government US dollars.

Your money and mine paying the illegal worker, spent on a vacation down there, and buying drugs from our buddy, etc.are the crucial keys. In thaoseways, no drastic action needs to happen by Washington. Closing the border will not come until Mexico collapses as it will do eventually because the entire system except for a few are corrupt.

So, is all the MSM coverage on the Qur'an burning just a smoke screen?

The economy heading south. Mexican drug wars. Iraq attacks. Afghanistan problems.

Oh, but we have this guy in florida going to burn his own property.

Oh well.
