This is what happens at the border of a nation that is run by a band of tyrannical looters who could not care less about defending the country or attending to the primary responsibilities of a legitimate government:
Border Patrol agents in Arizona were reportedly fired upon by a Mexican military helicopter that traveled across the border. … The Mexican chopper fired at the agents and then flew back into Mexico.
No worries, Mexican authorities say they intended to shoot at drug smugglers — the folks our “government” arms.
Tomás Zerón, the director of the Mexican attorney general’s office investigative office, said that Mexican military and federal police who were conducting an operation on a ranch in Altar, Sonora, were shot at by criminals. Mexican authorities never fired any weapons and in fact never crossed into the U.S. side of the border, he said.
Art Del Cueto, Border Patrol Tucson Sector union president, tells KVOA-TV, though, that they called and apologized for the incident.
They did it by accident, they didn’t do it, and they are sorry they did it. So you can see why our “president” won’t bother to respond, any more than he has responded to the pleas for help from the US Marine Mexico is still incarcerating as an effective POW in our one-sided border war.
Fortunately the agents were unharmed this time. But incursions into our undefended country by the Mexican military are a regular occurrence now. Next time the agents might not be so lucky.
It could be that Mexico was sending a message regarding who calls the shots at the border, now that the USA is leaderless and therefore pathetically weak. If they think the message wasn’t received, they might send a louder one.
In the absence of a federal government willing to defend America’s interests or even its territory, Texas is sending armed troops to the border. Texas might need those armed troops on its northern border as well if the situation under Obama gets any worse.
