War with Mexico, its time Washington wake up.
You really have to wonder what it will take for the Obama administration to defend the borders of our country. We are basically at war with Mexico but for petty self serving reasons the politicans in Washington won’t admit it. No other country on the planet would tolerate the crap we put up wit from Mexico. We have spend hundreds of billions of dollars a year to fight Al-Qaeda overseas while pennies on the dollars are used to combat Mexican terrorism. The entire country of Mexico is corrupt from to to bottom, and now its corruption pouring into our country. The violent war being waged in Mexico for drug routes into the U.S. is entirely there governments fault. For decades the ruling elites participated or failed to address the growing power of the drug lords. From top to bottom parties like the PRI where complicit in the drug trafficking. The local and federal police in Mexico along with the Mexican military from top to bottom participate in the drug trade. Along our entire southern border Americans our being terrorized by violent heavily armed narco terrorists, while our governments looks the other way.
Every year more Americans are being murdered, raped, beaten and robbed by these animals. The city of Phoenix, Arizona has become the kidnapping capital of America, with more incidents than any other city in the world outside of Mexico City and over 370 cases last year alone. Violent Mexican street gangs are spreading throughout the U.S. with direct ties to the drug lords in Mexico. These gang members should be hunted by U.S. military forces and put down using the same tactics we use overseas. These gang members and cartel terrorist are no different then the insurgents we fight in Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia and the dozen or more other countries we have troops now actively engaged. In fact Americans are likely to be killed by a cartel terrorist, gang member or illegal alien then a card carrying member of Al-Qaeda. The National Parks along the southern border have signs warning Americans to stay out due to safety concerns. Ranchers and land owners along the SE borders have to barricade themselves inside there homes after dark for fear of stumbling upon dozens of AK-47 touting Mexican smugglers. Even in state parks in Northern California hikers have been murdered after stumbling upon Mexican gang members protecting there U.S. based marijuana grows.
There are statistics showing up to fifteen thousand gang related deaths every year in America, most of which are tied to the drugs coming from Mexico A confidential California Department of Justice study reported in 1995 that 60 percent of the twenty thousand members of the 18th Street Gang in California are illegal aliens. If you saw a news story about a country who’s neighbor was conducting armed raids on its citizens killing and kidnapping them, violating there border thousands of times every day. Using aircraft and submarines to deliver harmfull substances that kill its citizens, deploying violent heavily armed thugs in cities throughout the country to terrorize and control the streets. Taking large sums of currency and shipping it back across the border while depleting resources. We have gone to war for a lot less, I think most folks would see this and say damn they should stand up for themselves and fight back. It’s time our government stand up and put the country ahead of petty self serving politcal BS.
DOJ: Sinaloa Cartel’s Influence Extends Well Beyond Border Into ‘Much’ of the U.S.

(CNSNews.com) – The Sinaloa criminal cartel uses its control of drug corridors on both sides of the Arizona-Mexico border to extend its influence well beyond the border area into “much of the United States,” according to the Department of Justice.
U.S. prosecutors have described Sinaloa as “one of the largest narcotics trafficking organizations in the world.”
A member of the cartel, who is facing federal charges in Chicago, claims that he was allowed to traffic tons of drugs into the United States under an immunity deal granted by the U.S. government in exchange for information on rival cartels – a deal allegedly linked to the aborted law enforcement operation known as “Fast and Furious.”
In its Drug Market Analysis 2011 for Arizona, the DOJ’s National Drug Intelligence Center reports that the cartel “dominates drug trafficking routes in Sonora, Mexico, and also controls the drug trafficking corridors in Arizona adjacent to Sonora.”
“The numerous Mexican organizations that constitute the Sinaloa Cartel, such as the Guzmán-Loera and Zambada-Garcia DTOs [drug trafficking organizations] control most drug corridors that cross the international border between Mexico and Arizona, including the Tohono O’odham Nation Indian Reservation and the Nogales POE [U.S. port of entry],” it says.
“The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) estimates that the Sinaloa Cartel-affiliated DTOs control approximately 90 percent of the drugs that cross the border into Arizona. The cartel also controls much of the illicit money and weapons trafficking along the Arizona–Mexico border and within most areas of the Arizona HIDTA [High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area] region.
“The Sinaloa Cartel’s wholesale distribution of heroin and marijuana extends beyond Arizona HIDTA counties to much of the United States,” the analysis adds.
“Local law enforcement agencies within the HIDTA region report that most of the marijuana and heroin that transits the Mexico–Arizona border area is destined for other domestic markets, including those in East Coast states such as New York, Georgia, and Florida, and Midwestern states such as Missouri and Iowa,” the report continues.
“Additionally, the Sinaloa Cartel smuggles large quantities of drugs into the United States through California that members use to supply the Arizona HIDTA region as well as other domestic markets.”
According to the White House, the HIDTA is a federally funded program created by Congress through the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988.
It brings together federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies in task forces that conduct investigations into traffickers in areas identified as “critical drug-trafficking regions of the United States.” HIDTA-designated regions are located across the continental U.S. including the nation’s capital, as well as in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The DOJ’s 2011 analysis focuses on HIDTA regions in Arizona.
“The Arizona HIDTA region is a major entry point for illicit drugs, particularly marijuana and heroin, transported from Mexico to the United States,” it states. “Approximately half of the marijuana smuggled from Mexico typically transits Arizona HIDTA counties. Seizure statistics indicate that Mexican traffickers are increasing marijuana and heroin smuggling from Mexico into the region.
“The Sinaloa Cartel represents the greatest organized criminal drug threat in the Arizona HIDTA counties through its continued dominance over drug trafficking into and through the region.”
