I can't help but think what a weak excuse this administration uses to justify the implementation of this "Fast and Furious" farce, and that makes me
I haven't even started reading the comments here yet because I have things to do and need to get my thoughts out quickly, so I'll apologise ahead of
time if I'm repeating the thoughts of others.
Think about it...the claim is that the ATF surreptitiously shipped thousands of guns to Mexican drug cartels in the hopes of tracking them? Are you
kidding me? Maybe it's just me, but this explanation makes no sense whatsoever for so many reasons:
1. Any brain-dead idiot would have known that thousands of guns will ultimately cause thousands of deaths in the hands of ruthless criminals like
these, so the ATF surely knew that they would be directly responsible for the loss of innocent lives. So what genius is thought this would be a good
idea, and who would have approved it?
2. As everyone knows, cartel violence has spilled over into the US, so it just stands to reason that innocent Americans would be killed with these
weapons, and most probably, law enforcement agents, there really were no surprises there, other than the fact that the truth somehow got out.
3. The ATF has no jurisdiction in Mexico, and there is nothing in the news about cooperation from the Mexican government AFAIK, so what were they
going to do once they figured out where the guns were going? Legally, they could only tell the Mexican authorities, and hope that they miraculously
swooped in and wiped out the cartels, and we all know the chances of that are absolutely non-existent, so obviously the ATF also knew that.
4. Even if they were able to trace the guns, and even if the ATF went in and illegally tried to fight the much better armed cartels (in part thanks to
the ATF), they wouldn't have put a dent in the cartels' numbers or firepower, and the thousands of weapons would still be out there killing innocent
people. Did they not think of this?
I could go on, but I want to get to the point.
Remember when Hillary and Obama was screaming about how 95% of the guns obtained by the cartels came from the US? Remember how it got some people
talking about stricter guns laws? Well only those who chose to dig deeper into what ultimately turned out to be an enormous lie know that the US was
only allowed to trace specific serial numbers on specific weapons, thus skewing the numbers. 95% was nowhere near the truth. The truth was more like
18%, which caused a lot of embarrassment for the Obama administration, which caused the story to die.
My contention is this: The Obama administration wanted to flood Mexico with weapons from the US so that US law enforcement would eventually find that
indeed 95% originated from the US, thus creating the "necessity" for stricter gun laws, including gun registration. And who better to blame for the
death of innocent Americans than "gun-friendly" Arizona?
Imagine how easy it would be to disarm the American public if we suddenly were required to register all weapons or face a long jail sentence. Call me
paranoid, but I have no doubt that this was the real motivation, and if true, everyone involved has committed a heinous act of treason and should be
tried and executed.
