    Sad that the Government of Mexico( un-official 52nd state, Puerto Rico being the 51st) got involved in what should have been a very proud yet sad moment in the families lives. Bravo the the Marines for holding in their feelings and doing the best they could.
    Me has to wonder what the Mexican Officers would have done If the Marines HAD been armed with fully operational/loaded weapons? IMHO the Mexicans took advantage of the situation because THEY KNEW the arms were not operational!

    This is truly pathetic on Mexico's part!!! If it wasn't for the U.S and those Marines with their guns,half the people in Mexico probably wouldn't even eat. How dare they interupt the funeral of a Marine that served! If they weren't sitting right next to us geographically,they would probably be toast.

    You know, things like this make my wonder if people ( like these mexicans) ever get jumped after they do stupid things like that? Do you think that maybe those Marines went and beat them up after the day was done? Im almost certain they thought about it.

    I'm sure they were thinking about kicking some ass the instant they were interupted, let alone later.

    The thing is, we don't treat people like that here in America, but these arrogant bastards sure like to treat Americans like shit anywhere outside our country. Unless your licking their ass trashing America all while your in their country... like mickey moore, or the dixie sluts, or hanoi jane, etc., etc., etc..

    1. This was the ASSOCIATED PRESS.

    -Totally biased liberal media.

    2. This was in MEXICO.

    They aren't the US.

    Everyone knows that Mexico has cops who are -for the MOST part- on SOMEONES payroll other than government.

    Why is everyone so surprised and upset?

    If a funeral was to be expected to remain intact, only an idiot would have it anywhere other than the US.

    Yeah but he was origionally from Mexico. I would want to be buried in my home country (in my case, America). Theres no reason why a bunch of Mexicans need to harrass a funeral.

    On other terms, I think they made their country look bad. Their government sends in soldiers to disrupt a funeral. So who wants to go to Mexico, now? Be careful, you may get shot at if your shoes are untied.
