Hildabeast:

Mexican Drug Wars Are OUR Fault
AND
US to blame for all the guns in Mexico



Gosh, anotherdefeatist, America-hating leftist at the top of government in DC. Who’da thunk it?

Hillary Clinton admits US blame for Mexico drug violence
America’s “insatiable demand” for illegal drugs is to blame for much of the violence engulfing Mexico, Hillary Clinton has said.

The US secretary of state also acknowledged America’s “inability” to stop weapons being smuggled across the border from the US and being used by the drug cartels in a bloody turf war.

Mrs Clinton made her candid remarks as she flew to Mexico City for a two-day visit where she will discuss US plans to ramp up border security with President Felipe Calderon.

“Our insatiable demand for illegal drugs fuels the drug trade. Our inability to prevent weapons from being illegally smuggled across the border to arm these criminals causes the death of police officers, soldiers and civilians,” she said during her flight to Mexico City.

“I feel very strongly we have a co-responsibility.”

She said US efforts to ban drugs such as cocaine and heroine had clearly not worked and it was unfair to blame Mexico for its drug cartel problem.

Although Barack Obama has pledged to devote an additional 360 federal agents to border security, the US Congress this month trimmed the amount of drug aid money it will set aside this fiscal year to $300 million from $400 million last year. Mrs Clinton later pledged $80m for helicopters to help the fight against drugs.

By contrast, President Felipe Calderon has spent more than $6.4 billion, assigning 45,000 troops and federal police, on fighting the cartels he tookd office in December 2006.

Mexico has repeatedly said it cannot contain the increasingly brutal cartels, now armed with grenades and rocket launchers, if America does not do more to stop the drugs gangs buying guns in the US, where they are much easier to obtain.

“It’s not only guns. It’s night vision goggles. It’s body armour,” said Mrs Clinton. “These criminals are outgunning the law enforcement officials.” More than 8,000 people have been killed in drug-related fighting since January 2008.

Meanwhile, it has come to light that the really serious weapons that the banditos have are coming from south of their border ... but don’t let the truth get in the way.

“Most of these weapons are being smuggled from Central American countries or by sea...”

“These groups appear to be taking advantage of a robust global black market and porous borders, especially between Mexico and Guatemala....”

“The Mexican government said it has seized 2,239 grenades in the last two years...”

“The enhanced weaponry represents a wide sampling from the international arms bazaar, with grenades and launchers produced by U.S., South Korean, Israeli, Spanish or former Soviet bloc manufacturers. Many had been sold legally to governments, including Mexico’s, and then were diverted onto the black market. Some may be sold directly to the traffickers by corrupt elements of national armies, authorities and experts say.”

In Ciudad Juarez, a Mexican border city of 1.5 million people, five deaths a day in January and February were attributed to drug violence.

But the recent arrival of more than 10,000 troops and federal agents has succeeded in quelling much of the violence. Soldiers have disarmed and replaced a local police force, many of whose members were believed to have been working for the cartels.

But despite the success in Ciudad Juarez, officials estimate that the Mexican cartels are already established in 230 American cities. The gangs have been blamed for killings as far afield as Anchorate, Alaska, and Atlanta, Georgia, as well as 366 kidnappings in Phoenix, Arizona, last year alone.

Mr Bethea said many Western businesses, including British companies, had invested heavily in the Mexican factories and were unable to give up doing business in the country easily.

The cartels’ ability to smuggle both guns and kidnap victims into Mexico has been facilitated by lax US border controls, although the Americans are starting to tighten up.

Janet Napolitano, the US homeland security secretary, has admitted that “carloads of cash and mega-weapons” were being transported out of America and into Mexico to fuel the fighting.

Mexican drug cartels are now as heavily armed as America’s enemies during the Iraq war and are extending their bloody conflict into the United States, say security experts.

Hey, Oassbite ... we’ve got “mega-weapons” being smuggled! Why not actually guard the damn border? It’s not like there’s a war going on on the other side. Oh, wait. There IS!!!11! All the more reason. Idiot. And if secured the border, you’d probably cut the flow of drugs 60%. Which would really annoy a good half of your supporters. Tough.

Don’t you just fookin love it? First they do a slow motion invasion, tens of millions of them over the decades. Meanwhile they’re forming some of the biggest and most violent criminal gangs that have ever been. Then when the shit starts hitting the fan back in Mexico, and quite a lot of it spills over into the US, it’s our fault.

Hey, how about we take a couple dozen billion away from the corporate raiders on Wall Street and spend on rounding up every fucking illegal beaner and their spawn in this country and shipping them the fuck home in handcuffs? And start actually fighting a war against the druggies? Don’t waste your time with the gang rats. Just shoot them.

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
