    In all fairness, a thrown rock does not warrant shooting people. The rock thrower was wrong, but call the locals to deal with it. Respect the border, set the example CBP. Cross-border sh** will just escalate.

    Mexican Drug Cartels are getting bolder each day. On July 23rd 2009 they sent a group across the border into California and asassinated BP Agent Robert Rosas as an attempt to intimidate the BP. It only toughend their resolve. This border is NOT secured no matter what Obama and Napolitano claim.

    The Mexican authorities say under no circumstances would it be justified to send any projectiles over the border. Of course its ok if their military crosses our border, just not the other way around. Typical of that government. Whatever they do is ok, but whatever we do is wrong, even if we’re defending our lives or the lives of others. Mexico is nothing but a 3rd world toilet trying to drag us down to their level.
