Residents not returning to town hit by Mexico drug war

Residents not returning to town hit by Mexico drug war

CIUDAD MIER, Mexico — Shell casings carpet the road outside a bullet-riddled subdivision on the outskirts of this colonial town on the Rio Grande Valley, abandoned by most of the 6,000 inhabitants following a nine-month battle by warring drug cartels.

Nobody lives in the 65 one-story white houses across the border from Roma, Texas, except the abandoned pets that roam the streets of the Casas Geo development. Like 90 percent of those who once lived in Mier, they have fled to a shelter in the nearby city of Miguel Aleman, Mexico’s first such haven for people displaced by drug violence.

While Mexicans increasingly have fled border towns up and down the Rio Grande Valley, Ciudad Mier is the most dramatic example so far of the increasing ferocity of war between rival drug cartels, and the government’s failure to fight back.

The state and federal governments say it’s safe to go back and that people are returning. One official even invited tourists to return. The scenes witnessed by The Associated Press say something else.

Residents flee town hit by Mexico drug war

Take a very close look at this story America. This is on the U.S. and Mexican border. Not hundreds of miles into interior Mexico. It’s right on OUR border. For those not familiar with Texas, Roma is 52 miles N.W. of McAllen, Texas. McAllen being a major city along the Rio Grande.

WAR rages along our border. Do you think the U.S. government gives a DAMN? Do you believe that Barack Hussein Obama gives a DAMN? Do you believe that Texas governor Rick Perry gives a DAMN?

If you do believe it, you would be wrong.

The U.S. government is doing all it can to ignore this WAR that is taking place mere YARDS from American cities and towns, and American citizens.

Barack Hussein Obama doesn’t give a DAMN. He is more concerned with the downfall of America and the TSA’s grab and grope program, and the ramifications it will have on his plans for re-election.

Rick Perry? He’s a lot of talk. That’s it. Perry makes it sound real good, ‘We need troops on the border, and I confronted Obama with it…’

That is a damned LIE. Perry handed some papers to an Obama aide, Perry himself had less than a minute to speak to Obama. He didn’t ‘confront’ Obama about anything.

Let me put it this way, IF Perry wanted to put Texas National Guard troops on the border, all he has to do is give the order. Perry is, after all, the commander of the Texas National Guard. Here’s the real story; Perry can do it, but he won’t, because he doesn’t want the state of Texas to have to pay for it. He wants the troops placed under FEDERAL orders, that way, their cost is picked up by the Department of Defense.

With Perry, it’s all about the money, and…the votes.

Perry doesn’t want to anger the Hispanic voters of Texas. He needs and wants their votes and support. Perry, regardless of his hollow words, is exploring a run for the White House, making waves is not a part of his game plan.

There are some that say I am an evil racist and a bigot because of my beliefs regarding American security and the way I believe it needs to be brought about. Frankly, I don’t care what those people think about me. If I did, I would stop posting my opinions over and over.

I truly feel sorry for the working people of Mexico. I mean that sincerely. But the maladies that they and their nation suffer are not brought on by anything that we have any control over.

Mexico is a scab on the ass of humanity. It is a nation long past it’s prime. It is a nation in the firm control of cartels. If it were Afghanistan or Iraq their tyrants would be called war lords.

The United States can’t police the world, we shouldn’t even try.

What is happening in Mexico is the problem of no one but the Mexican people. Some believe that America needs to go in and fix Mexico. Governor Perry supports sending troops to Mexico and this, The Coming War Between The United States And Mexico.

It’s a rare occasion when I disagree with my wonderful friend Longstreet. He is a wise man, but his idea about war with Mexico, the reason for that war, if it were to come about, and it’s method of conduct, are a bit different from mine.

Stem the flow of ILLEGALS into this nation. On that we agree. Round up and deport every last ILLEGAL in the USA. On that we agree.

Seal the border. On that we also agree.

Longstreet then believes that we will be forced to invade Mexico to restore order in that nation. He believes that is the only way for rule of law to ever be instituted in that worthless dung heap.

That is where we differ in opinion.

I don’t care if the Zetas and Gulf cartel kill each other until they are wiped from the face of the earth. I don’t care how much collateral damage they inflict in the process, as long as that damage is on the Mexican side of the border.

If we feel the need to get involved in the pacification of Mexico, turn it into a sheet of glass, it will be a nice quiet neighborhood for the next few years.

Sadly, we’ll never seal the border, nor will we round up the ILLEGALS and deport them, not with the likes of Obama as POTUS. And lets be perfectly honest, Bush, either one, nor Clinton would do anything even remotely resembling total border security or deportment of ILLEGAL aliens.

Nuke Mexico? Never gonna happen. Nukes are so not politically correct.

And invade Mexico? Seriously? You’ve got to have BALLS to go to war. Obama hasn’t got any! You have to have a love of country to go to war to protect your nation, your people and your way of life. The American way of life is NOT the way of Barack Hussein Obama.

Invade Mexico? Yeah, right…maybe if some of the Texas Militia guys hit the lottery. :?

    No invasion necessary. Just shoot every illegal alien that crosses over the “DIE” line.
    Simple. Oh the horror you say? That is how all wars are controlled and eliminated.
    Nothing new here for the faint-hearted.

    mrchuck — That’s what WARRIORS would do… That’s what real Americans would do… We would remove the threats to our nation by ANY means…

    Regrettably, there are those in this nation that not only claim the name *American*, they claim to be born again Conservatives.

    They are of course, full of goose crap, but that is their claim, and they actually have a few loyal readers that buy into their claims of conservatism, even though these faux conservatives denigrate our military and men like us that are not afraid to say what we believe, and our willingness to back those words with force if necessary.

    Ever since Woodrow Wilson and his egotistical stuff about making the world safe for democracy (as if a world populated mostly by thugs cared about democracy and fair play), too many Americans have felt mistakenly that we have to make the world a better place. Not so. Can’t be done.

    It’s simply up to the world to have their constitutional convention if they so choose, like we did, go thru ratification slowly, like we did, and then become a nation that respects property rights and the rule of law. Until then, and don’t hold your breath, we have the right to protect ourselves and adopt the policy mrchuck advocates.

    In my experience, the more freebies people get (and amnesty is a freebie), the more badly they behave when something makes the freebies late.

    Well Longstreet is a very smart MOFO but invading Mexico isn’t something I’d be for. There needs to be a credible reason and no alternative to an invasion. While Mexico is responsible for a lot problems here it’s not just them, it’s us that have allowed it. OUR leadership from Reagan till now has been nutless in dealing with the cancer that is illegal immigrants. My solution:

    1st, We take 1 mile of Mexico land from Pacific to the gulf, and turn it into a “No Country” kill zone.

    2nd, Build a security fence on the Mexico side of the “No Country Kill Zone” and on the American side. Then Mine the kill zone between the Fences.

    3rd. Shoot any POS that makes it to the second fence.

    4th, Let every illegal in our nation know that if they don’t “SELF deport” they will have to walk that mile between the fences when we catch them.

    Problem solved.. that’s how I roll.

    Robert’s right in that we allowed it. If we had secured our border, there wouldn’t be the routes for drug and human trafficking, meaning there would be no cartels at the border fighting for these routes. I wonder if our government realizes that they’re battling for illegal trade routes into the United States? We don’t need to send any troops into Mexico. They need to be stationed on our side of the border with AWACS and attack helicopters patrolling the border.

    I like Robert’s idea…..a lot.

    Have you seen THIS? Brief excerpt:

    One big story that hasn’t yet made it across the Spanish-English divide is the epic of Don Alejo Garza, an elderly farmer who fought a one-man stand against a drug gang. When they gave him a deadline to leave his property or else, Garza sent his ranch hands home and armed himself. There he waited. When the gang came in the dead of the night he met them with a fusilade and killed four and wounded two before the numerically superior drug enforcers finally took him out with gunfire and hand-grenades. The Mexican Marines arrived on the scene to find bodies all over and an old man at the center of it all….

    Let’s see, 25% of their GDP. That must come to what… a buck and a half?

    Keep your powder dry

    These craven American political bastards.

    Doing it all for the VOTE or the FREE WORK.

    On BOTH sides of the aisle.

    My words are so bad, my thoughts are so bad, I won’t write them here.
