Mexican military flies over South Texas


www.mysanantonio.com

The flight is one of as many as 10 in the past 17 months in which South Texans - in broad daylight - have spotted Mexican helicopters hovering overhead. The aircraft was so close to the ground military personnel could be seen inside, Gonzalez said.

While an array of U.S. federal and state agencies declined to comment, a Mexican government official confirmed that Mexican military helicopters have permission to use Texas as a staging ground for missions into Mexico to fight drug traffickers.

Not too happy about this.

Now, I suppose you could argue that the situation is so grim that they need the staging ground and the US gets perks in Mexico, etc. But at the same time letting other countries' militaries fly around and conduct exercises on US soil? Huh-uh.

It sets a bad precident. Other countries (*cough cough creditor nations like China* cough) might start getting ideas.

And then there is the whole thing of just softening us up for the borderless NWO, chipping away at our concepts of sovereignty...ho-hum, another nation's miliary deployed in our country, no biggie, Mexico does it all the time....

Any of our Texan brothers and sisters want to weigh in on this insult to the Republic?

Oh your so right imagine allowing another military to fly in you own backyard.

You do realise that the US does this in every corner of the globe don't you?

Have you heard of the;


Twelve years after the Soviet collapse, America reportedly had 702 overseas military bases in about 130 countries and another 6,000 bases in the United States and its territories. That report failed to include a number of so-called secret bases and bases in the Middle East. "Due to government secrecy, our citizens are often ignorant of the fact that our garrisons encircle the planet.” Chalmers Johnston, military historian

We can unofficially bomb sites in Somalia, Yemen, and Pakistan. We fly drones over Iran, Mexico and any other nation we are curious about. We spy on every nation on earth with satellites. Lastly, we station troops all over the planet.

But...if you fly Mexican helicopters over Texas we go ballistic.

We are kind of psycho that way.

So when America crosses over Mexican borders it's ok? But when Mexico does the same thing it's bad?

It's 170+ countries now. Didn't you see that during the superbowl? "The NFL is broadcasting this to troops in over 170 countries."

I would rather neither of those things happen.

For that to happen, we have to mind our own business!

To mind our own business properly, we have to do a bunch of little things.

One of these little things is sealing the Southern border!

Bringing the troops home from the Middle East and having them patrol the border would be a win-win, don't you think?

I can see why you would be concerned

Mexicans are our brothers and sisters as well. Everyone on the planet is a brother or sister.

if the US is going to use the military to patrol the US/Mexican border, shouldn't they also patrol the US/Canadian border?

Joint military operations are nothing all that new.

The issue I have is the apparent lack of U.S. military and law enforcement leadership in the matter. This is our soil and we should be the primary operators on it - accepting the help of the Mexican military and offering to help them on their side of the border (with them taking the lead, there).

That's how it works in most the world-over.

I'm not quite sure how it works, here. It seems they are given far more free run than I think is appropriate. I suspect the motivations are to try and not stir up controversy through a more 'official' stand against drug trafficking at the border. In many other related operations, the government has seemed to be very remiss to admit to carrying out any kind of activity at the border. Why... I don't really know. It's our damned border - we do what we want with it.

It's not "our damned border" it's A border. It's Mexico's border just as much as it is ours. It's the US land on this side of the the border.

The US routinely hosts a number of foreign nations to conduct exercises on their test ranges. Mexico is stil assumed a "friendly nation." Do you think they flew into Texas to start trouble?
