There is an ongoing shooting war in our backyard, and very little mention of it can be found in our main-stream media. Our border with Mexico has been an armed combat zone with excursions of heavily armed uniformed Mexicans entering our country sometimes shooting their way in and out.
Who are these "soldiers"? Are they really soldiers or heavily armed thugs protecting the highly lucrative illegal smuggling trade or assisting terrorists? Why has this been hushed by our media?
April 18, 1997, two U.S. Customs inspectors were wounded in a gun battle at the Calexico border station. They did take out the Mexican shooter. On the same day, an underground tunnel was closed because of bomb threats. And just 50 miles north, an illegal smuggler carrying 25 illegals trued to run over a custom border agent. That incident was televised.
Following those incidents, over 10 more firefights in the following 10 weeks erupted at the border. Yet, no main-stream media made any mention of the incidents.
The weapons of choice used by the shooters in Mexico has been the AK-47. They are out-gunning our border patrol agents.
"There have been more firefights on the border in recent weeks than there have been in Bosnia," said an exasperated Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-El Cajon, before passage of a little-noticed bill last week authorizing President Clinton to send up to 10,000 troops to the Mexican border to help stop illegal immigration and drug trafficking.
"People are getting killed along the border," said Rep Brian Bilbray during the troop deployment debate. Most Americans, though, haven’t noticed.
We have sent soldiers to the border, but the firefights continue and have been ongoing and increasing in intensity, wounding and killing Americans.
There may be something behind the lack of real action to protect our southern boarder. In an earlier post, Beware! – North America Continental Integration via SPP:
President Bush and top officials in his administration are implementing plans to cancel U.S. sovereignty and form a new “North American Community” that will merge Canada, the U.S., and Mexico. Called the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP), the arrangement calls initially for legalization for millions of Mexican illegal immigrants, practical destruction of any remaining border security, and the transfer of huge amounts of U.S. aid to bring Mexico’s primitive economy more in line with its northern neighbors. The SPP has been jointly agreed to by Canadian Prime Minister Martin, Mexican President Fox, and Mr. Bush.
