Well you don't get RPG's, grenades and mortars at your local gun store. I saw on story about the U.S. being the source of the guns and for the B roll they were showing an M-60.Then, what does Mr. Sharkey append at the end of this? He sends a link for me to read:
I would really like to see a break down on the serial numbers of the arms taken there. I know during the El Salvador civil war the insurgents had a bunch of M-16's and people were shouting, "See they are getting arms from the U.S." Turns out once the serial numbers were checked, these were weapons we had abandoned in arms lockers at Tan Sanut Air Base when the NVA took Saigon. Yep, there were U.S. weapons in South America- via North Vietnam.
Guns, Cocaine: One Market Out of ControlA bit further into the article, the author, Samuel Logan states:
(International Relations and Security Network, 28/02/2006)
Gone are the days when the black market for cocaine required a few strong men, limited bribes, and involved the purchase of a few revolvers. The cocaine trade has expanded well beyond the Andean mountain corridor and the control of local actors there.
The market for small arms and light weapons has completely overlapped the cocaine market. Purchases for arms are no longer made with cash but with cocaine, and the same routes used to smuggle cocaine out of South America are used to smuggle guns in. Actors far and wide rush to meet the weapons demand created by continued conflict in Colombia.
What used to be two separate cash-for-product markets has blended into one nearly perfect market.
Due to the conflict in Colombia, perfect elasticity of demand exists for anyone who can smuggle guns into Colombia. And the market there will absorb any and all weapons at the going rate, which in this case is measured not in cash but kilos of pure cocaine for one functioning rifle.
Honduran police seized 218 weapons and over 50,000 rounds of ammunition in April last year, uncovering a slick guns-for-cocaine operation while adding evidence to the pile that puts Honduras at the center of Central American black market operations. Police seized 161 M-16 assault rifles, 26 Soviet-era AK-47 rifles, 11 US M-60 machine guns, nine grenade launchers for attachment to the M-16 rifle, and five portable grenade launchers, among other things. These weapons were to be exchanged for one to two metric tons of pure cocaine.Then near the end of his article he writes:
This twin market extends as far north as border towns between the US and Mexico. Nuevo Laredo, just across the border from Laredo, Texas, has recently been the focal point of violence between rival gangs there and local police. Mexican involvement in the region's black market creates a soft underbelly along a 2,000-mile boundary across which anything of any size can be smuggled.Make it illegal, create a black market, start trampling rights and undercutting nations and peoples. And then, when you think the populace is just about right, start pushing victim disarmament- denigrating those that speak for freedom and liberty and praise that poor, misunderstood victim, the criminal. Turn everything on it's head and declare black is white- NOPE, don't think so you Lying Rat Bastards!
Tens of thousands of illicit actors propagate a market that proves to be highly lucrative, flexible, and networked. There is no center, no head, no leader to kill.
Counting all the countries involved just in the Americas, there are over 11 governments independently working to improve national security. Plan Colombia, the region's high-profile arrangement between the US and Colombia to reduce cocaine supply and diminish the FARC's presence, is a failure. The plan has stimulated markets for guns and cocaine rather than reduce demand in the US or the military capability of the FARC in Colombia.
And so the assault on the 2nd Amendment begins...AND
Eric Holder, under the smokescreen of a presser about the bust of the Sinaloan drug cartel and seizure of property, announced that the Obama Administration intends to re-institute the Clinton Gun Bans.
This isn't really news, as this had been a part of the Democratic Party Platform (page 48, if you care to look it up). and was also listed on the White House website. What is news is that it was stated openly by a member of the Obama team in a news conference.
Follow up point: How is it logical that the United States Attorney General is able to use the Mexican Government's inability to control crime in their country as justification for infringing on the rights of Americans?Then, we have that FAILED STATES AG trying to tell Texas and These united States how to deploy our military:
I fail to see the connection...
Perhaps instead we should ARM every Mexican and let them settle their own dispute in whatever way seems best to them and Leave Americans the Hell Alone!
Mexico attorney general: We don't need U.S. troops to intervene in drug warYes FAILED STATE we have plans, troops will be deployed and WE DO remember the years 1836, 1847, and so many others. If you think this will get you El Norte, you got another thing coming and have only this to say, get your shit together, or we will- this is TEXAS you sonsofbitches and you know how we fight.

WASHINGTON — Mexico's attorney general said Tuesday he sees no need for U.S. troops to intervene in his country's war on drug cartels, nor to gear up for a spillover of violence across the border.
"I don’t see that," Attorney General Eduardo Medina-Mora said in an interview with The Dallas Morning News. "I don't see the U.S. military playing an active role. The size of the problem on the U.S. side is not calling for that, and certainly Mexico has enough institutional capabilities to deal with this."
U.S. officials view the violence as a potential national security threat, and last month the Bush administration's homeland security chief, Michael Chertoff, said Washington has drawn up contingency plans for a "surge" of both civilian law enforcement and military assets along the border.
Texas also has developed a contingency plan to cope with spillover violence. On Tuesday, Gov. Rick Perry demanded a tighter security net from Washington, saying he’s asked the Obama administration for more aircraft and “a thousand more troops” to the border.
"I don’t care whether they're military troops, or they're National Guard troops or whether they're customs agents," he said during a visit to El Paso with retired Gen. Barry McCaffrey, the former U.S. drug czar who warned two months ago that Mexico could soon become a "narco state."
"Sources at Xxxxxxxxx Xxxxxxxxx Xxxxxxxxx state that the Mexican Army is poised to move troops to the Reynosa/Matamoros area with roughly 1500-2000 troops being sent to Matamoros. The goal is to create a pincer movement to put the squeeze on the cartels. The troop movement will occur after the Troops in the Southern part of Mexico finish up with the crop burning detail they are currently engaged in.Now, Stratfor just released a new article entitled, Mexico: The Third War, and states:
Look for a push against the cartels in the next few weeks.
On the US side, we are on high alert and have deployed rapid response teams, very much like SWAT from all over the country. They are manning the bridges 24/7 and can be seen wearing full tactical gear and carrying M4’s- of course, all personnel are wearing body armor."
By Fred Burton and Scott StewartAND
Mexico has pretty much always been a rough-and-tumble place. In recent years, however, the security environment has deteriorated rapidly, and parts of the country have become incredibly violent. It is now common to see military weaponry such as fragmentation grenades and assault rifles used almost daily in attacks.
Make no mistake, considering the military weapons now being used in Mexico and the number of deaths involved, the country is in the middle of a war. In fact, there are actually three concurrent wars being waged in Mexico involving the Mexican drug cartels. The first is the battle being waged among the various Mexican drug cartels seeking control over lucrative smuggling corridors, called plazas. One such battleground is Ciudad Juarez, which provides access to the Interstate 10, Interstate 20 and Interstate 25 corridors inside the United States. The second battle is being fought between the various cartels and the Mexican government forces who are seeking to interrupt smuggling operations, curb violence and bring the cartel members to justice.We also have the following warning:
Travel AlertI did read that 40 pounds of cocaine were seized at the border:
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE
Bureau of Consular Affairs
This information is current as of today, Thu Feb 26 2009 00:35:07 GMT-0600 (Central Standard Time).
February 20, 2009
This Travel Alert updates security information for U.S. citizens traveling and living in Mexico. It supersedes the Travel Alert for Mexico dated October 15, 2008, and expires on August 20, 2009.
While millions of U.S. citizens safely visit Mexico each year (including thousands who cross the land border every day for study, tourism or business), violence in the country has increased recently. It is imperative that travelers understand the risks of travel to Mexico, how best to avoid dangerous situations, and whom to contact if one becomes a crime victim. Common-sense precautions such as visiting only legitimate business and tourist areas during daylight hours, and avoiding areas where prostitution and drug dealing might occur, can help ensure that travel to Mexico is safe and enjoyable.
Crime and Violence Throughout Mexico
The greatest increase in violence has occurred near the U.S. border. However, U.S. citizens traveling throughout Mexico should exercise caution in unfamiliar areas and be aware of their surroundings at all times. Mexican and foreign bystanders have been injured or killed in violent attacks in cities across the country, demonstrating the heightened risk of violence in public places. In recent years, dozens of U.S. citizens have been kidnapped across Mexico. Many of these cases remain unresolved. U.S. citizens who believe they are being targeted for kidnapping or other crimes should notify Mexican officials and the nearest American consulate or the Embassy as soon as possible, and should consider returning to the United States.
February 23, 2009 - 7:24 PMThen Sunday, the San Juan, Texas police nabbed an 18-wheeler with $3.5 million in cocaine:
PHARR | DRUGS SEIZURE
About 40 pounds of cocaine were seized Friday in two separate border inspections.
Customs and Border Protection officers found a cocaine package hidden in the oil pan of a Jeep Cherokee on the Hidalgo-Reynosa International Bridge, a CBP news release says. Anita DePlanty, 30, of Houston, was arrested on federal drug charges.
Two hours later, officers working at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge found 11 packages of cocaine hidden in the wheel well of a Ford EcoSport. Two Reynosa residents, Ernesto Hernandez Aguilar, 28, and Blas Zuniga Torres, 24, were arrested on drug charges.
The street value for both seizures is $1.3 million.
SAN JUAN — Police pulled over a tractor-trailer Sunday that was carrying a load of cucumbers - and about $3.5 million worth of cocaine.You should read the comments by the locals for a better understanding of that lane change, and I must also point out that last Friday, Border Patrol seized more than two tons of marijuana near Escobares, Texas:
The traffic stop occurred about 4:23 p.m. on the 1400 block of the eastbound Expressway 83 frontage road, said Investigator Rolando Garcia, a San Juan police spokesman.
A San Juan patrol sergeant saw the driver of the semitrailer fail to use his turn signal during a lane change on the frontage road, so the officer pulled over the rig, according to a police statement.
February 20, 2009 - 10:45 PMHowever, all of this pales in comparison with the knowledge that the Mayor of Ciudad Juarez is alive and well- in El Paso Texas:
FOR THE RECORD
ESCOBARES | DRUG SEIZURE
U.S. Border Patrol agents seized more than 2 tons of marijuana Thursday after spotting several men loading a GMC cargo van with the narcotics.
Agents from the Rio Grande City station seized the 166 bundles of marijuana while conducting surveillance along the Rio Grande, according to a news release from U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The men fled toward Mexico when the agents approached the van and identified themselves.
No one was arrested.
The 4,159 pounds of marijuana seized by the agents has an estimated street value of more than $3 million.
After threats, Juárez mayor in El PasoSorry to read of the death of his bodyguard, and my condolences go out to his family, but I must confess, the stupidest thing about all of this is the Department of Homeland Security:
By Diana Washington Valdez / El Paso Times
Posted: 02/24/2009 12:00:00 AM MST
EL PASO -- Police are investigating threats against Juárez Mayor Jose Reyes Ferriz, who moved his family to El Paso for safety, El Paso police Detective Carlos Carrillo said Monday.
"We received information that the Juárez mayor lives in El Paso, and that possibly they were going to come to El Paso to get him," Carrillo said. "He has not asked us for our help, but it's our duty to protect any resident of our city who may be under threat."
Juárez police said written threats against Reyes Ferriz and his family were left in different parts of Juárez after the police chief, Roberto Orduña Cruz, resigned Friday. The threats were written on the kind of banners and posters that the Juárez drug cartel has used to send messages to police and others.
Meanwhile, Mexican authorities were unraveling a shooting Sunday in Chihuahua City that killed one of Chihuahua Gov. Jose Reyes Baeza Terraza's bodyguards.
Alejandro Chaparro Coronel died while defending another state agent in a convoy. He was a commander who served on the Chihuahua state police force for 11 years.
The assailants wounded two other bodyguards, both also members of the state police.
Mexican officials said police returned fire and wounded one suspect, Eduardo Hernandez Valdez, 36. He served in the Mexican army from 2001 to 2003.
Homeland Security official affirms Mexican drug cartel violence has spilled over into TexasNo Shit Sherlock!
By Brandi Grissom / Austin Bureau
Posted: 02/24/2009 12:00:00 AM MST
AUSTIN -- Violence from Mexican drug cartels has spilled over into Texas, state Homeland Security Director Steve McCraw said Monday.
"Yes, absolutely it has occurred; there's no question about it," McCraw said after a hearing before the House Committee on Border and International Affairs.
HEADQUARTERS, FORT OF THE ALAMO: Sir; On the 23rd of Feb., the enemy in large force entered the city of Bexar, which could not be prevented, as I had not sufficient force to occupy both positions. Col. Bartes, the Adjutant-Major of the President-General Santa Anna, demanded a surrender at discretion, calling us foreign rebels. I answered them with a cannon shot, upon which the enemy commenced a bombardment with a five inch howitzer, which together with a heavy cannonade, has been kept up incessantly ever since. I instantly sent express to Col. Fannin, at Goliad, and to the people of Gonzales and San Felipe. Today at 10 o'clock a.m. some two or three hundred Mexicans crossed the river below and came up under cover of the houses until they arrived within virtual point blank shot, when we opened a heavy discharge of grape and canister on them, together with a well directed fire from small arms which forced them to halt and take shelter in the houses about 90 or 100 yards from our batteries. The action continued to rage about two hours, when the enemy retreated in confusion, dragging many of their dead and wounded.
During the action, the enemy kept up a constant bombardment and discharge of balls, grape, and canister. We know from actual observation that many of the enemy were wounded -- while we, on our part, have not lost a man. Two or three of our men have been slightly scratched by pieces of rock, but have not been disabled. I take great pleasure in stating that both officers and men conducted themselves with firmness and bravery. Lieutenant Simmons of cavalry acting as infantry, and Captains Carey, Dickinson and Blair of the artillery, rendered essential service, and Charles Despallier and Robert Brown gallantly sallied out and set fire to houses which afforded the enemy shelter, in the face of enemy fire. Indeed, the whole of the men who were brought into action conducted themselves with such heroism that it would be injustice to discriminate. The Hon. David Crockett was seen at all points, animating the men to do their duty. Our numbers are few and the enemy still continues to approximate his works to ours. I have every reason to apprehend an attack from his whole force very soon; but I shall hold out to the last extremity, hoping to secure reinforcements in a day or two. Do hasten on aid to me as rapidly as possible, as from the superior number of the enemy, it will be impossible for us to keep them out much longer. If they overpower us, we fall a sacrifice at the shrine of our country, and we hope prosperity and our country will do our memory justice. Give me help, oh my country! Victory or Death!
W. Barret Travis
Lt. Col. Com
Fellow citizens & compatriots --
I am beseiged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna -- I have sustained a continual Bombardment & cannonade for 24 hours & have not lost a man -- The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken -- I have answered the demand with a cannon shot, & our flag still waves proudly from the walls -- I shall never surrender or retreat. Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism, & every thing dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch -- The enemy is receiving reinforcements daily & will no doubt increase to three or four thousand in four or five days. If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible & die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country --
VICTORY OR DEATH
William Barret Travis
Lt. Col. Comdt.
P.S. The Lord is on our side -- When the enemy appeared in sight we had not three bushels of corn -- We have since found in deserted houses 80 or 90 bushels & got into the walls 20 or 30 head of Beeves -- Travis
COMMANDANCY OF BEXAR, 3 o'clock p.m.: The enemy in large force are in sight. We want men and provisions. Send them to us. We have 150 men and are determined to defend the Alamo to the last. Give us assistance.
P.S. Send an express to San Felipe with news night and day.
COMMANDANCY OF BEXAR: We have removed all the men to the Alamo where we make such resistance as is due our honor, and that of a country, until we can get assistance from you, which we expect you to forward immediately. In this extremity, we hope you will send us all the men you can spare promptly. We have one hundred and forty six men, who are determined never to retreat. We have but little provisions, but enough to serve us till you and your men arrive. We deem it unnecessary to repeat to a brave officer, who knows his duty, that we call on him for assistance.
"The enemy in large force is in sight. We want men and provisions. Send them to us. We have 150 men and are determined to defend the garrison to the last."
(02-20) 11:29 PST OAKLAND -- A 23-year-old visitor from the East Coast had just gotten money from an ATM when he told his friend on a cell phone that he had a bad feeling about two men approaching him at the Fruitvale BART Station in Oakland.Well Javier, that someone is you! You raised that once and future Socialist- go look in a mirror and see who is to blame beyond your dead budding Socialist progeny. YOU, as no MAN worth the title would ever make such a statement AFTER their son DIED committing ARMED ROBBERY.
His worst fears were realized when one suspect, Victor Veliz, 18, held a folding knife with a 5-inch blade to his neck and the other, Christopher Gonzalez, 18, threatened to shoot him Thursday night, authorities said.
In a blind panic, he lashed out at his attackers, grabbing the knife from one of them and punching the other as his friend listened in horror on the phone.
Without realizing it, authorities say, the man stabbed Gonzalez in the chest. Gonzalez stumbled to his family's home around the corner, collapsed into his father's arms and died.
Veliz, who is affiliated with a gang, was arrested at Gonzalez's home after police allegedly found him with the East Coast visitor's cell phone. He will be charged with murder in the death of his accomplice, along with a robbery count, prosecutors said.
Our immigration policy should be based on what is just, humane, and beneficial for the United States, not a policy formulated or influenced by Mexican immigration policies, however illogical they may be.Well worth reading.
Folks, the U.S.A. entered WWII on Dec. 8, 1941 and the surrender of Japan was signed on August 15, 1945. We fought, won and ended a WORLD WAR in just short of 3 years and 9 months. I demand to know WHY in the hell we can’t wage war, win and sign a peace treaty in Iraq and Afghanistan after 7 1/2 years of total fighting time! I want someone in command, like the guy at the very top of the chain to tell me, make me understand what is wrong!Damn fine read.
By Arthur BriceNow, watch and listen again to the CNN video and then the next two via YouTube. Hear that? Full auto consistently and then remember that Mexico says that this is bought at American Gun Shows and the US Government works this angle via the ATF to disarm American Citizens.
(CNN) -- A shootout in a border city that leaves five alleged drug traffickers sprawled dead on the street and seven police wounded. A police chief and his bodyguards gunned down outside his house in another border city. Four bridges into the United States shut down by protesters who want the military out of their towns and who officials say are backed by narcotraffickers.
That was Mexico on Tuesday.
What is most remarkable is that it was not much different from Monday or Sunday or any day in the past few years.
Grenade tossed into ‘Booty' bar fails to explodeThen, it was announced that the grenade was linked to recent attacks on a TV Station and consulate:
February 2, 2009 - 5:06 PM
PHARR - Tragedy was avoided after a grenade thrown into a tavern outside the city failed to explode.
Deputies do not know who tossed the explosive inside El Booty Lounge, 3701 N. "I" Road late Saturday night, said Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Treviño.
Authorities evacuated the bar after they received a call about the explosive, which was apparently tossed into the bar. No injuries were reported and bomb did not detonate because both pins were not removed, Treviño said.
Booty Lounge grenade linked to consulate, TV station attacksTwo days later, the attack was then said to be between to rival gangs:
February 10, 2009 - 5:43 PM
A live grenade tossed into a Pharr bar last month came from the same cache of weapons used in recent attacks on a Monterrey television station and that city's U.S. Consulate, law enforcement officials said.
Investigators have traced the explosives used in each incident to a lot manufactured in South Korea and later discovered in a stash house believed to be run by the Zetas, the heavily armed paramilitary wing of the Tamaulipas-based Gulf Cartel.
Pharr trio handed drug charges after raid fails to yield explosivesAnd yesterday, bridges along that section of the Texas/Mexico border were closed for a period of time due to violence:
February 12, 2009 - 4:36 PM
PHARR — Three men are behind bars after authorities raided their home Wednesday in a failed search for explosives linked to a grenade attack last month at a nearby bar.
Aldo Avendano, 27, Adrian Loredo, 20, and David Sanchez, 28, were all given felony drug charges Thursday afternoon in Pharr Municipal Court.
Several area law enforcement agencies raided the trio's Pharr residence at 1023 E. Bell St. on Wednesday, looking for explosives connected to a failed grenade attack Jan. 31 at El Booty Lounge on the 3700 block of North "I" Road.
The attack stemmed from a dispute between rival gangs the Tri-City Bombers and the Texas Chicano Brotherhood, authorities said.
Police could not confirm Thursday whether the three men arrested Wednesday were members of either gang, said Lt. Guadalupe Salinas, a Pharr police spokesman.
The grenade tossed into the Booty Lounge did not detonate.
Authorities did not find any explosives at the residence Wednesday. But they did seize about 24 pounds of marijuana, 3.8 grams of cocaine, and drug paraphernalia, as well as two shotguns and ammunition.
Bloody Reynosa: At least five killed in street battleHowever, he did say that the local paper was not reporting fully in his opinion, more than likely due to wanting to keep this as quiet as possible as the economy along the border depends upon the Mexicans coming across to purchase goods. He said the San Antonio paper reported much more detail as did the Mexican News Papers and other media:
Officials say violence and protests were not connected
February 18, 2009 - 12:15 AM
Sean Gaffney, Ana Ley and Jeremy Roebuck
REYNOSA — A violent street battle between suspected gangsters and Mexican soldiers killed at least five people Tuesday morning as separate protests against the military presence shut down parts of the city for several hours.
U.S. officials believe Hector Sauceda Gamboa, the suspected regional leader of the Gulf Cartel, was among the five gunmen Mexican authorities said were killed in the violence on the city's southwest side.
Mexican media accounts put the death toll as high as 20, with dozens more injured.
Sauceda, known as "El Karis," was shot during a fight with soldiers at his home in an affluent neighborhood behind the Plaza Real shopping center on Boulevard Hidalgo — one of the city's busiest streets, a U.S. federal official said.
Mexican officials would neither confirm nor deny he was killed, though the Mexican secretariat of public safety reported seven people had been detained. Authorities recovered a variety of weapons, including grenades, a 60 mm mortar and assorted small-arms ammunition.
The secretariat also reported seven federal police officers were injured — one of them seriously — during the fighting with gangsters armed with grenades and automatic rifles.
"We heard a lot of gunshots," screamed one child as he fled the Felipe Carrillo Puerto Primary School, holding his father's hand after the fighting had ended.
By Lynn Brezosky and Dudley Althaus - Hearst NewspapersThe protests, as many commented were more than likely paid by the Drug Dealers, and even if it were gangs fighting over turf in the grenade attack it is about money (of which the pool is shrinking) and it does not negate what occurred, across the Rio Grande or on sovereign Texas soil- war.
REYNOSA, Mexico — Running gunbattles between federal security officials and drug gang members left about a dozen people dead here Tuesday.
A statement from the Mexican government said seven security officers and five gunmen had been killed. However, witnesses said a pair of middle school students attempting to flee the violence also were killed.
One estimate said 15 people — all civilians caught in the crossfire — were wounded.
Neither the federal police nor the Defense Ministry immediately released information about what was behind the shootouts, but they largely were blamed on gangsters taking aim at federal security forces.
The gunfights came as northern Mexican protesters — angry about job losses, diesel fuel prices and military presence in their towns — caused the shutdown of international bridges along the border from Brownsville to Laredo for the third time in three weeks.
"Even the drug dealers are having a hard time as the strippers are commenting on it too."Look alive My Fellow Paranoids- it is coming closer every day.

The New Hampshire state legislature took an unbelievably bold step Monday by introducing a resolution to declare certain actions by the federal government to completely totally void and warning that certain future acts will be viewed as a “breach of peace” with the states themselves that risks “nullifying the Constitution.”Texas needs to be next.
This act by New Hampshire is a clear warning to the federal government that they could face being stripped of their power by the States (presumably through civil war!
The remarkable document outlines with perfect clarity, some basics long forgotten. For instance, it reminds Congress “That the Constitution of the United States, having delegated to Congress a power to punish treason, counterfeiting the securities and current coin of the United States, piracies, and felonies committed on the high seas, and offences against the law of nations, slavery, and no other crimes whatsoever;. . . . . therefore all acts of Congress which assume to create, define, or punish crimes, other than those so enumerated in the Constitution are altogether void, and of no force;”
Federal gun crime laws? Void. Federal drug crime laws? Void. The gazzillion other federal criminal laws that deal with anything other than the specific enumerated crimes? ALL VOID.
"Our forecast indicates a stock market Obama Bounce when TARP II is news as traders and investors figure out what happens next in Washington.
