Mexican police staging raids inside Mexico from US territory

This is nice... right?

U.S. Widens Role in Mexican Fight

The Obama administration has expanded its role in Mexico’s fight against organized crime by allowing the Mexican police to stage cross-border drug raids from inside the United States, according to senior administration and military officials.

Totally legal right?

Many aspects of the campaign remain secret, because of legal and political sensitivities.

Aka it's illegal... and it were to become a big scandal that the bought off MSM couldn't ignore, Obama would get his butt kicked.

Mexican commandos have discreetly traveled to the United States, assembled at designated areas and dispatched helicopter missions back across the border aimed at suspected drug traffickers.

Officials said these so-called boomerang operations were intended to evade the surveillance — and corrupting influences — of the criminal organizations that closely monitor the movements of security forces inside Mexico.

And what you think will happen when the cartels figure this out? Ah yes, they'll send teams inside the US to monitor said people... yeah this will totally end well... NOT....

Hell they did it before... and it didn't end well... at all.

Former American law enforcement officials who were once posted in Mexico described the boomerang operations as a new take on an old strategy that was briefly used in the late 1990s, when the D.E.A. helped Mexico crack down on the Tijuana Cartel.

But, he said, it was ended in 2000 when cartel leaders struck back by kidnapping, torturing and killing a counternarcotics official in the Mexican attorney general’s office, along with two fellow drug agents.

What ya think will happen now?

American Predator and Global Hawk drones now fly deep over Mexico to capture video of drug production facilities and smuggling routes. Manned American aircraft fly over Mexican targets to eavesdrop on cellphone communications.

Another war...

And the D.E.A. has set up an intelligence outpost — staffed by Central Intelligence Agency operatives and retired American military personnel — on a Mexican military base.

DEA and CIA operatives and outposts... a nice way to give the cartels even more guns and the CIA to smuggle even more drugs in the US to fund their black budget...

They said that the operations had been carried out only a couple of times in the last 18 months, and that they had not resulted in any significant arrests.

And by a ``couple of times`` they mean ``hundreds of times``...

I bet if this continues, we'll see heads cut off in the US real soon... the open season on the US for the cartels has begun.


And seriously... what's next? Can it get crazier?

This is unbelievable. When will we stop looking at the Mexican situation as a law enforcement issue with the cartels and look at it for what it is? This is a civil war going on down there, the aggressor is just fighting for something entirely new as guerilla wars go. They're fighting 100% for drug turf and control. It doesn't change the fact that over 30,000 dead in just a matter of years is a war, not a criminal problem.

Now the Mexicans will be staging cross border raids like some two-bit guerrilla war rebel force, into THEIR OWN country. Is this still the border we "can't secure"? We'd better find a way. Things are getting VERY bad down there.

I'm actually happy we're helping the right side (for once). Perhaps Obama is feeling a little guilty now about ARMING the side these Mexican cops are being slaughtered by. Better late than never to do the right thing, I guess.
