    As independence celebrations begin, Mexico's historical enemy and trading partner is militarising the border region.

    As Mexicans celebrate the 200th anniversary of their independence from Spain, evoking a history of resistance against colonialism, a disturbing development unfolds on the country’s northern border: a fleet of US Predator B drones has been deployed on constant patrol.

    Fireworks will blast and flags will soar south of the Rio Grande in the most expensive festivities Mexico has ever seen, however the bicentennial may be over-shadowed by growing tensions with the country's biggest trading partner and fiercest historical adversary.

    "There is a feeling of increased militarisation on the border," says Juanita Darling, a professor of international relations at San Francisco State University.

    Fears of Latino migrants and spiraling drug violence in Mexico, have led the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to deploy drones to monitor the entire border since September 1, along with a further deployment of 1,200 troops and other measures, as part of a $600m package for "enhanced security".

    Drones are not enough to stop the invasion of the United States. We need "skull cracking" police to stop their invasion rallies and a military build up on the border that is ready to start "immigrating" deep into Mexico.

    There are millions of Americans who never touched illegal drugs. Mexico pushes their drugs onto innocent American children.

    we are usually close on things but , we diverge here. Mexico has had a problem with law and order going back century's ....comparatively so did we, we created the rule of law from the ground up in places just as rough as Mexico, here in the US.

    Whats occurring now is the final act.

    Colombia had a problem that dwarfed Mexico's 20 years ago, that turned around. One of the reasons was there was at least bedrock of law and order to start with/from, an atmosphere of trust to build with, in Mexico, any Mexican will tell you, the 'law' as in officers to courtrooms, is not as mean or deadly, but just as corrupt as the narcos are criminal....very sad, but true.
