This Must Be A Sick Joke

After the murder of a U.S. agent in Mexico the message is the following:

Federal, state and local authorities across the country, including the Rio Grande Valley, are sending an unequivocal message to Mexican drug cartel members in the U.S. and Latin America: If you kill a U.S. agent, there will be repercussions.

I guess that proves that there has not been any repercussions in the U.S. in terms of fighting the more than 40 billion dollars  a year in drugs that enter the country.  According to the video of the "first" take down in Houston, neighbors say that finally after two years of nightly gunfights in their neighborhood something is being done.  Now what does that message say?  Nobody is doing anything to fight the bad guys on the U.S. side.  

Who is paying who?  Who is turning a blind eye?  This really sucks. To think we have suffered so much here in Mexico and in the U.S. they are now saying the above.  Does that mean they will only take measures against the bad guys if another U.S. agent is killed on Mexican turf?   

Some ally, some neighbor, some friend.  


  1. Yep, we had the same thoughts. Aren't they supposed to be doing this stuff everyday?? Why would they only take offensive measures when one of their agents is killed? A total joke...

  2. Right on Chris. With modern equipment, the flow of guns and cash into MX can be stopped as could the flow of drugs the other way. The problem is, they don't want it stopped!
