    Mexican cartels now using ‘tanks’
    By William Booth , Published: June 7

    For the drug cartel boss who has everything, the latest piece of military hardware is the “narco tank.”
    Today’s competitive crime mafias in Mexico are no longer satisfied with bazookas, rocket-propelled grenades or land mines. The Mexican military has discovered that gangsters south of Texas are building armored assault vehicles, with gun turrets, inch-thick armor plates, firing ports and bulletproof glass.

    The Mexican cartels are running Mexico so they have always had access to things like Tanks, they just have not used them until now.

    They are turning a blind eye to what is going on here, so it is no suprise they turn a blind eye to what is happening in Mexico. Actually there is no border between US and Mexico. Just an imaginary border. We do nothing but token enforcement in order not to OFFEND Mexico. The fence offend them, deporting criminals offend them. Not financially taking care of illegal aliens offend them. Hell we may as well just give the hell up and open the border completely and get the hell our of the good old USA.:confused:
    If I were young, I would leave and stop fighting.

    Maybe if Americans stopped getting addicted to drugs this wouldn't be an issue.

    AZ Sheriff: Why More Troops at Korean Border Than U.S. Border?
    Monday, June 20, 2011 – Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu said the Obama administration’s decision to extend the deployment of 1,200 U.S. National Guard troops along the U.S. border with Mexico until Sept. 30 is “pandering” and that those numbers “fall far short” of what military power is needed to keep the country safe.

    Never fear. The FBI, the CIA, the U.S. military is in Mexico trying to help them out. And still not to fear - the USA will give Calderon ALL the credit for the accomplishments.
