Mexican Drug Lords Now Use Car Bombs

From an unfazed Associated Press:

Car bomb in Mexican drug war changes ground rules

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico – Mexican drug traffickers’ first car-bomb attack against police has revealed a new level of cold-blooded planning that is forcing this border city and security forces to change the way they confront violence.

Police said Friday that La Linea drug gang — the same group blamed for the March killing of a U.S. consulate employee and her husband — lured federal officers and paramedics to the site of a car bomb by dressing a bound, wounded man in a police uniform and calling in a false report of an officer shot.

The gang then exploded a car holding as much as 22 pounds (10 kilograms) of explosives, killing the decoy, a rescue worker and a federal officer. A regional military commander said a cell phone might have been used to detonate the bomb.

The gang promised to strike again, with graffiti painted on the wall of a Ciudad Juarez shopping center. "What happened … is going to keep happening against all the authorities," the message read. "We have more car bombs."

This sounds an awful lot like the techniques employed by Muslim terrorists Islamic extremists? Could it be that they are now training our Neighbors to the South?

After all, it’s not like they don’t have a shouting interest in the drug trade, in addition to their general goal of destroying the US.

Mayor Jose Reyes Ferriz said city authorities "will have to change the way we operate. We’ve started changing all our protocols, to include bomb situations."

He fears such attacks could hit the morale of his already overworked police force.

"Having attacks, direct attacks, on the police department creates the possibility of police just retiring or quitting," he said.

Reyes Ferriz said at least 14 police officers or other law enforcement officials have been killed in the last few weeks in and around the city. The city has a police department of about 2,800 officers

Ciudad Juarez, across from El Paso, Texas, has become one of the most dangerous cities in the world, with more than 4,000 people killed since the beginning of 2009.

Police said Thursday’s attack was in retaliation for the arrest of a top leader of the La Linea drug gang, Jesus Acosta Guerrero, earlier in the day…

Meanwhile in the northeastern border city of Nuevo Laredo, 12 people were killed and 21 wounded in running gun battles between soldiers and cartel gunmen on Friday

Luckily, our southern border has never been safer, so there is no reason for anyone in our country to worry.

    Won’t take long for this to spill over into Nogales, Tucson, Phoenix and parts north. As long as this government lets them have their head, they will do everything/anything to claim territory and terrorize people who like to live a quiet life.

    But, along the lines of having the nation in shreds, this fits perfectly with the boy who sits in the president’s chair’s plans. In fact, it’s perfect. He has been made aware of it and now is scheming on how to get it to come over to the US side of the border, thereby locally calling in the national guard, then installing a local proletariat government (for emergency’s sake, you understand) and test-driving how that would all work on a grander scale.

    Meanwhile, vigilante groups have formed, http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100717/ap_on_re_us/us_neo_nazi_patrols;_ylt=Ahw7.qEx0KL_MnZh1lhhWVhH2ocA;_ylu=X3oDMTM4NnM1YXJqBGFzc2V0A2FwLzIwMTAwNzE3L3VzX25lb19uYXppX3BhdHJvbHMEY2NvZGUDbW9zdHBvcHVsYXIEY3BvcwMyBHBvcwMyBHNlYwN5bl90b3Bfc3RvcmllcwRzbGsDbWFud2l0aG5lby1u planning on doing the job the government won’t. Not the best idea, and they are far from “radical right wing” as they embrace national socialism but are forming into posse groups just the same.

    But I predicted the lefties will be the ones who resort to violence long before the right would even consider it.

    So, what would the opinion be, if a bunch of drug-thugs got into a shooting battle with a bunch of neo-nazis? Who do you root for? Or do you just shake your head and weep because this is what it’s coming down to?

    If the feds did their job, no Arizona law have need been written. If the border was, in fact, secure, none of this would be going on.

    I wonder, if, like prior to WWII, several things just aren’t aimed at a locus and there will be either one major thing or several smaller things that set a bunch of OTHER things in motion. I certainly do not trust this government to uphold the best interests of this nation….and it would be far more likely that those in power would just give Mexico a significant chunk of the Southwest in order to “avoid conflict”.

    This all stinks. Everything they’ve done stinks and everything they’re going to do stinks as well. Behold their brilliant utopia! 20+% unemployment, trillions of dollars of unfunded debt, every time something unexpected happens, the grand poohbah of the white house is shopping at the pro shop, ordering some pooftah flambe’ suffle’, or just ignoring the nation completely, until he can use the event to his “advantage”.

    He is bad news. I knew it in 2008. My e-mail chat buddies laughed at me. I signed off from each and every one of them. I wonder how they feel now? “Oops” is not what you say after you play Russian roulette and the time you pull the trigger has the round in it. “Oops” doesn’t quite cut it when you drop the electric line into the pool because you didn’t ponder the possible consequences of your actions. “Oops” is what you say when you pick up the green marker instead of the orange. It doesn’t work when you destroy the nation.

    And that paragraph is directed at the voters…the “fence-sitters” who thought, “Gee, it’s time we had a black president. It will do my (white) guilt a world of good to vote for that guy”.

    Well, all I have for those people who thought that way, who wanted to assuage their own pathetic feelings…is anger and animosity. Politics and the people who are elected to it is no place for experimentation. Especially when those who vote cannot properly evaluate what happens when you insert “tab-A” into “slot-B”.

    It’s unbelievable and I’m so disgusted. I waffle between having a smidgen of hope that in the Fall of this year we can turn this runaway train around and undo the damage and feeling hopeless because there are still some people who think it’s all just thuper! Those who say, “He can’t be a socialist/Marxist…we just don’t have any of that here”.

    Such blinding, bold, omnipresent overwhelming IGNORANCE. It’s like painting the rust on your car thinking it will look great. It’s like washing your clothes with a broken pen and knowing it’s in there but thinking, “It’ll be fine, soap gets out ink”. It’s like sticking your head out of the sunroof of the car while approaching a very low bridge and not thinking anything bad will happen.

    I would expect to see this type of behavior from a “Jackass” TV show. But I guess I’m the ignorant one who hoped that people had the ability to identify crap and BS and a fluffy con-game in 2008. But no. And yes, it stung a lot when that flaming liar said “I won”. But, it stung for the same reason it does when a gangster takes your car and drives off with your family with a smug, evil, dirty grin, and knowing you can’t do anything about it.

    I want these elected officials in PRISON. I want their actions to be so tightly chronicled in COURT that they will look like Goering in the war trials after WWII.

    “Ms Pelosi, did you or did you not read the healthcare bill?”


    “Why not?”

    “What kind of question is that?”

    “Just answer it please”

    “I will not”

    “Ms Pelosi, isn’t it true that as speaker of the house you used the Air Forces C-27, also known as a 757, every week for years at a cost to the taxpayer of some 13 billion dollars to date?”

    “Did I?, I’ve no idea”.

    “We have it on record, the fuel cost, cost of maintenance, food, alcohol, etc”

    “Well, I have no idea, I just told them I needed to go to my bungalow in San Fran and they scheduled it; How was I supposed to know how much it costs?

    Etc etc.

    And Reid, and Frank, and Holder and Axlehead, and Gibbs, and the whole hee-haw gang.

    Impeach them all and imprison them. We must!!!!

    They have violated every single word of the Constitution! All of it!! Intentionally. Hi Crimes and misdemeanors.

    The ball has to start rolling NOW!

    Just google Mexico & Hezbollah or terrorists and they are daily killings that our countries media is leaving out.
    Is this a political thing for politicians & media not mention muslim terrorists like dirty bomber Jose Padilla of Mexico caught after 9/11.
    Is it so sunscribers don’t leave their border states?

    When Obama came into office the Hezbollah (also killing the evil Hamas in Palestine & digging tunnels for smuggling threatened ) threatened to bring 4lbs of WMD through tunnels at a time that we were aware of many tunnels from Mexico into the U.S.

    Recently, the main media mentions a 100 ‘ below the earth tunnel, stretching 800 feet on to U.S. soil, and leaves out muslim terrorist illegals.

    “Luckily, our southern border has never been safer, so there is no reason for anyone in our country to worry.” You betcha. And Obama also desires to strengthen our national security, our Judeo-Christian culture and constitutional government.
