Obama’s Idea To Improve Border Security:

Give the corrupt Mexican government $700 million




President Obama on Tuesday vowed to invest the resources needed to address the threat posed by drug traffickers in Mexico.
“We are going to continue to monitor the situation, and if the steps we have taken do not get the job done, then we will do more,” he told reporters Tuesday night.

Off to a fast Do Nothing start, huh? We have a terrible problem there, and everyone knows it. A real threat to national security. So the Halfrican Halfwit’s first step will be to just sit around and watch. Idjit!!

He praised the efforts of Mexican President Felipe Calderon to counter drug cartels, which “have gotten completely out of hand,” but said the United States must take further steps, such as ensuring that illegal guns and cash do not flow from north of the Rio Grande to the cartels in Mexico.

“That’s what makes them so dangerous,” he said.

No, what makes them [the cartel banditos] so dangerous is that they are violent criminals in a country where you can buy anybody off for a couple of pesos.

Obama’s remarks came hours after Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced that the United States is sending hundreds of federal agents and crime-fighting equipment to the border.

Gee whiz, Crappy Nappy, Queen of the Open Borders movement, do you think hundreds of agents are going to fix a broken border that’s thousands of miles long and is penetrated at will by millions of people every year??

In an interview with CNN later Tuesday, she said, “It’s all about border safety and security and making sure that spillover violence does not erupt in our own country.”

The new federal plan, developed by the departments of Justice and Homeland Security, calls for doubling the number of border security task force teams and moving a significant number of other federal agents, equipment and resources to the border. It also involves greater intelligence sharing aimed at cracking down on the flow of money and weapons into Mexico that helps fuel the drug trade, senior administration officials said.

The plan commits $700 million to bolster Mexican law enforcement and crime prevention efforts. The funds will provide, among other things, five new helicopters to increase mobility for the Mexican army and air force as well as new surveillance aircraft for the Mexican navy.

The funds also will support enhanced communications technology for Mexican prosecutors, law enforcement and immigration officials.

The $700 million allocation, meant to assist what administration officials described as an “anti-smuggling effort,” will complement ongoing U.S. aid to Mexico under the Merida initiative: a three-year, $1.4 billion package aimed at helping Mexico fight the drug cartels with law enforcement training, military equipment and improved intelligence cooperation.

The money was allocated last year, but Tuesday’s announcement brought the first details of how some of that money will be spent.

Ah, now I begin to see the light. This is one of George Bush’s failed policies that is finally getting moving. And since old Jorge was only slightly less enthusiastic about the USA being overrun by beaners than this group (and their spineless GOP talking puppet Juan McAmnesty) ... this is another famous DC “little too little, little too late” plans that will get nothing done.

And we’re sending the money to the Mexican Police and the Mexican Army, both of which are utterly corrupt and, if not completely controlled by the cartels, at least heavily bribed and infiltrated by them. Not what I’d call a really smart idea.

To help strengthen the U.S. side of the border further, the administration also plans to triple the number of Department of Homeland Security intelligence analysts dedicated to stopping Mexican-related violence.

Because it’s all hate crimes you know. So let’s spend cash to make sure no white folks are mistreating the poor little taco benders.

It goes on more, but I can’t stomach any more of it. We’ve got millions of people unemployed in our country. We have an enormous and very porous border. We have lots of factories that can make guns, bullets, uniforms, tents, canteens, boots, binoculars, walkie-talkies, handcuffs, trucks, prison fencing, shovels, and cheap wooden coffins. I think I could find a better way to spend that $1.4 billion.
Hell, at this point, I’m just about ready to say we ought to drop a few dozen nukes on Afghanistan and Pakistan and go home. Spend that money protecting our own country for once.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
