As drug violence escalates, Americans in Mexico warned

WASHINGTON (AP) — Mexican drug cartels are shipping more than massive quantities of drugs north of the border. Increasingly, they’re also exporting bloody mayhem.

Seeking to stem the growing influence of the Sinaloa cartel within the United States, federal agents arrested more than 50 suspects in raids Tuesday night and Wednesday morning at different ends of the country. The raids capped a 21-month operation by the Drug Enforcement Administration that rounded up 755 suspects and seized more than $59 million in criminal proceeds.

“These cartels will be destroyed,” Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday at a press conference announcing the arrests.

The overnight roundup by DEA and state and local police included arrests in California, Minnesota and the Maryland suburbs of Washington.

Holder called the cartels a threat to national security, adding, “They are lucrative, they are violent, and they are operated with stunning planning and precision.”

As drug violence escalates, Americans in Mexico warned

I applaud these officers for their time and efforts. Seriously, I do. They took some scumbags off of the street, some 755 suspects and they seized more than $59 million in criminal proceeds. Folks, this isn’t even a drop in the bucket.

The new AG, Eric Holder, is strutting like a proud peacock too, you would almost think his guys were the ones that put all of this together. According to the story, this investigation has been an ongoing effort for the last 21 months. If my math is correct, Holder has been AG for about a month, that makes him some 20 odd months OUT of the equation. But he’s really trying to make himself look relevant in this operation, like HE personally accomplished this.

The attorney general also suggested that re-instituting a U.S. ban on the sale of assault weapons would help reduce the bloodshed in Mexico, where last year 6,000 people were killed in drug-related violence.

I told my readers, several weeks ago, Eric Holder was being brought in to play the ‘heavy‘ for the Obama administration in their efforts to take as many guns out of the hands of honest Americans as possible. Obama will be able to execute HIS plans to disarm this nation and then smile as he says, ‘But I didn’t do it America, AG Holder did, and he did it to protect you and me and this nation.’, and I am telling ALL of you, right here and now, IT WILL HAPPEN!

I posted here DO NOT Confirm Eric Holder and here Senate confirms Holder as first black AG concerning Holder and his desire to become the most aggressive and successful anti-gun person this nation has ever known. Holder is using the violence in Mexico as an excuse to reinstate the *assault weapons ban*, and it’s a very lame attempt. AK-47′s are his primary target in this recent effort. Oh sure, he includes other guns in his tirades but this one is directed at AK’s it appears.

U.S. officials have a responsibility to make sure Mexican police “are not fighting substantial numbers of weapons, or fighting against AK-47s or other similar kinds of weapons that have been flowing to Mexico,” Holder said.

What Holder doesn’t realize it appears is this, the AK’s that are on our streets and on the streets of Mexico will not be affected by a renewal of the *assault weapons ban*. The AG can institute all the *bans* he wants, these bans will not lessen the number of military type weapons on our streets by so much as 1 rifle!

Eric Holder is the most STUPID individual I have ever seen. The AK’s that Mexican army troops and police are facing didn’t come from the USA, they are pouring in from overseas arms dealers, from black market dealers in Europe, Central and South America and other locations. The AK is manufactured in China, N. Korea, Russia and several former Soviet satellite - Eastern Bloc countries, and can be bought, in LARGE numbers, very cheaply, through DIRECT sources. And in a FULL AUTO configuration.

Get ready America, if the Obama administration, and their new *yard dog*, Eric Holder have their way, WE will be unarmed using the premise that Americans are supplying the guns to drug dealers and once that happens there will be an explosion of violence in this nation the likes of which we have never seen.

And there won’t be one damned thing that We, The People can do other than watch. If we let Holder disarm us that is…
