Is it Time to Declare War on Mexico?

Is it Time to Declare War on Mexico?


Posted 1 hour ago by Giacomo Filed under Crime, Immigration, Military, Politics, Scandals, War

 

In March of this year, Javier Jose Rodriguez was visiting family in Sasabe, Arizona, about 30 miles west northwest of Nogales, along the Mexican border. Rodriguez had been drinking some beers early Saturday morning and was driving around the town when members of the Mexican army opened fire on him. He was shot in the arm and side, resulting in a three week stay in the University of Arizona Medical Center in Tucson.

In yet another incident from earlier this year, members of the Mexican army crossed into the US and drew their rifles on US Border Patrol agents. Sylvia Longmire, a border security analyst recently published a book titled Border Insecurity, reported that members of the Mexican army claimed they were following drug traffickers and got lost, adding:

 
"However, I believe there was some confusion as to whether that's what the Mexican Army was doing because there was no evidence found by the Border Patrol of any drug smugglers in the area."

"From what I understand, this has happened hundreds of times before."

In 2006, a Mexican army helicopter landed about 300 yards inside the US. There was no prior notice or request from them to enter the US to accomplish whatever their mission was. Ronal Ayers, a resident of Arivaca, Arizona described the incident with the helicopter:


"A helicopter flew very low. Flew around behind the barn, landed and then several men got out all clad in black with masks over their face and body armor, carrying what looked to be full automatic weapons."

Information obtained through the Freedom of Information Act reveals that Mexican army troops have crossed into the US over 300 times in the past 18 years. It’s not just happening in Arizona, but in all of the border states.

While the Mexican army is regularly invading the US and pulling their weapons on our Border Patrol agents and shooting America citizens, it seem that they are doing virtually nothing to keep hundreds of thousands of people from illegally crossing their border into the US. They pose an economic and health threat to the United States and the American people.

The Mexican drug cartels seem to have free rein over areas along the border in spite of the Mexican Army, sending tons of illegal drugs into our country to destroy the lives of hundreds of thousands of Americans.

Now the Mexican government has imprisoned a US Marine reservist for getting lost and making a wrong turn.
 

After serving two tours of duty in Afghanistan, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. He moved from Weston, Florida to San Diego so he could receive the proper treatment for his PTSD.

On March 31, Tahmooressi was driving to meet some friends in the San Diego area. Not knowing the area, he made a wrong turn and ended up across the border in Mexico. Mexican authorities stopped him and when they found all of his possessions including three legally purchased guns in his vehicle, he was arrested and taken to the La Mesa prison in Tijuana. From his jail cell, Tahmooressi told San Diego media:


“I was going to call them after I drove off the exit, but I never got off the exit, I blew right past it. I wasn’t paying attention, thinking I had way farther to go. I ended up in Mexico with no way to turn around.”

Tahmooressi has been charged with three firearms crimes. According to his attorney, Tahmooressi could receive 21 years in prison if found guilty of the charges. To date, the charges against him have not been dismissed and Tahmooressi remains in prison. Mexico expects the US to allow hundreds of thousands of illegal Mexicans to roam free in our country after violating our federal immigration laws, yet they continue to keep one American Marine in prison for getting lost and making a wrong turn.

Support from all over the US has been pouring such as the motorcycle rally that just took place in San Diego.

One of the bikers present, Paul Hawker told the local media:


"We need people to be aware of what's going on. We have a no soldier left behind. He's being left behind in Mexico."
 
 Why hasn’t Barack Obama or Secretary of State John Kerry done anything to help secure Tahmooressi’s release? After all, Obama illegally traded 5 high ranking Taliban leaders for an Army deserter, why won’t he do anything to help a true American military man? Is it because Mexico has no interest in Taliban leaders? Or is it because Bergdahl had denounced the United States and sided with the Muslim radicals and Tahmooressi is still a loyal American?

How is it possible to cross an international border without any warning whatsoever?  Not even a sign saying Bienvenidos a Mexico?

The plight of the US serviceman would get more attention, if it wasn't buried eleven paragraphs into an unfocused rant in an obscure fringe media source.

ok, but how did he manage to cross an international border unawares?  I'm not saying he isn't worthy of interest, I'm just curious.

As far as I am aware, he missed the freeway exit he needed (last one before the border) and was not permitted to turn around at the border. You'd think there would be a turn around gap in the median at the border for precisely this circumstance. It's bound to happen from time to time - someone driving and not really paying attention to the signs.

The area was under construction and there was no sign at the time. My understanding, mostly from Greta, is that there is a sign there now.
 
I do not know what is going on with this in any way. I do not understand why Mexico is keeping him as a hostage, he is obviously not a criminal, nor do I understand why Obama continues to publically and openly snub him, in a real kind of 'screw you' way.
 
There has to be more to this on both sides than we know. All I see is total insanity. It may very well be that Obama and the Mexicans are 'saving' him for some extra dramatic 'release' during the elections.
 
With Obama and his crew nothing is about being a decent human being, everything is about politics and everyone is expendable.

Greta Van Susteren took a vehicle and made the trip, showing how easy it would be to miss the make-shift signs.  Then once you got in the lane to Mexico, there was no way to turn around because of the concrete barrier.

It looked like it would be easy to do what he did.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

There has been endless coverage on exactly how he made this turn, and there are a number of videos out there that explain this very clearly.  In any case, this guy is rotting in a Mexican jail, and the Administration is depending on exactly the kind of lack of informed opinion like yours to give them cover and avoid having to take any real but embarrassing actions.

And in the meantime, Sgt. Abu Bob Bowe al Ameriki is getting three hots and a cot and plenty of liberty at the expense of the American taxpayer.

you must be singing soprano with your undies in that much of a twist.  I asked a simple, albeit lazy, question and - as I was at pains to make clear - was not, and am not, stating or implying that this gent deserves his fate.  If you don't feel like indulging my laziness, that's fine, just stop reading into it things that aren't there (and untwist your undies some, too).

If we declare war on Mexico (again), we defeat them (again), and we take their land (again), will Cliven Bundy lay claim to grazing rights in Sonora?
