Mexicans Slaughtering Mexicans Wholesale

I just read where the Mexican Police in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, say that more than 50 people have been killed in the last three days.

Everyone seems to be watching the Arab World and all that's going on there, but hey why hasn't the Liberal Media reported on what's happening in Mexico? And why hasn't President Obama gone on TV and talked about what's going on right at our own border and what we are doing to make sure it doesn't spill across into our country?

The El Paso Times reports that it was 53 victims, all murdered between Thursday and Saturday, including a Police Officer, a municipal Patrolman, and a State Police Investigator.

Supposedly a shootout on Thursday in Juarez, which is just across the border from El Paso, left a Police Officer and two bad guys dead in the streets. These firefights are common on the streets of Juarez according to people who have written me from that area.

They say it's safer in Iraq than in Mexico these days. But of course that's not saying much because Stockton California, East L.A., and even Detroit, are all considered by many not as safe as the battlefields of Iraq these days.

The interesting thing about what's going on in Mexico is the targeting of individuals. It's not just random violence and out-of-the-blue occurrences. It appears that all three were "Hits".  Murdered Police Officer Ricardo Torillo Sandoval died at the hands of two Drug Cartel "Hit Men", State Police Investigator Jesus Manuel Cruz Landin was shot and killed on his way home, and Patrolman Benjamin Nunez was shot and killed by a driver at a traffic stop.

Sounds like designated targets to me. And if that's the case, this is worse than a just crime. It is a War over control of a territory. When an enemy targets the Police Authority in that way, it is for strategic and psychological warfare reasons. It is to instill fear and intimidation into the government and specifically the law enforcement community plain and simple!

Then of course there is the torture and mutilations, which is the Drug Cartel's all too well know signature. And yes, I've seen pictures that I won't display on this sight. I don't need to because the question is what everyone along the border know, what about Mexicans slaughtering Mexicans wholesale?

Is this what the world wants? Where is the U.N. now? Is it OK to turn a blind eye to what's going on and let it go because it is not an economically important part of the world and subsequently has no importance in the eyes of some?

No oil is controlled through that area. It is only Mexican lives that are at stake. And the papers talk about the important names, when they produce their who, what, when, where, and how. But the fact is that there are hundreds, if not thousands, that are being affected by this War across the border.

The other side of the border is turning into a wasteland, another Killing Field like so many hot spots around the world. It's become a place where only the worse type of humans prevail, those who murder and push their will onto others.

Someone asked me, if the Drug Cartels are like Gangsters? I say they're worse than mere gangsters who are out for themselves while making money illegally. To me the Cartels act more like provincial Warlords with their own personal Armies armed with the latest firepower bought in bulk from countries like China and smuggled into "their" area.

The biggest difference between them and mere Gangsters is their desire to completely own and control territory. They have more in common with the Warlords of Afghanistan than the likes of the Mafia. The Mafia works underground and at least attempts to evade any notice of their activities. In contrast, the Mexican Drug Cartels don't give a damn who sees what they are doing.

They are open about their desire for Regional Control and they believe that no one can stop them. And they may be right, as long as the world looks the other way and doesn't place importance on that region going up in smoke. The local Police are under-gunned and the Mexican Army is not being deployed effectively if they are.

The problem is that Mexico looks at the violence on the border as criminal acts, instead of the War that it has become.

In the meanwhile, what are Americans to do? My advice is to form a Home Guard along the border, armed and trained, to protect Americans on this side of the border. If our Federal Government won't take up the task of protecting Americans, then we have a Government that is failing to do what the United States Constitution requires the Federal Government to do.

The local residents have the right to feel safe in their homes. Americans should not be turned into refugees running from the growing violence among them.

Many people do not realize that the Constitution of the United States of America was penned to instruct the Federal Government what it can and cannot do. It was never intended as a guideline for Americans, but instead the law that rules our form of government.

The United States Constitution requires, it mandates, it demands as a stated obligation that the Federal Government defend our borders. If they fail to do so, then it falls to the people to do it. Murder and kidnappings of Americans must stop, or at least not get worse.

In my opinion, it may take a civilian Home Guard to protect the American people while across the border Mexicans perform the wholesale slaughter of Mexicans in their towns all along the border.
