The 'War On Terror' Does Not Apply To Mexico!

The southern United States border with Mexico is starting to resemble a combat zone. The U.S. State Department recently issued an alert, stating that the equivalent of military small-unit combat is taking place around the border. 

There has also been a recent report of four American citizens being executed in this area. This is more proof that the global war on terror is a complete fraud and the current administration has no desire to protect this nation's borders or the American people. The administration would prefer to have our military in over a hundred countries claiming that they are spreading freedom and democracy than have a military presence along the southern U.S. border to ensure this sort of activity doesn't spill over into the U.S..  

If the global war on terror were actually real, the borders to this nation would be sealed, but instead we see combat along the Mexican border, hordes of illegal aliens filtering into the U.S. and border agents prosecuted for shooting at drug traffickers illegally entering the U.S.. The current activity along the U.S.-Mexico border is cause for concern and a real threat to this nation's security yet there is no action from George W. Bush. Bush should be impeached immediately for failing to adequately protect the American people from this serious threat and for the misallocation of U.S. military resources while death squads are roaming around the U.S.-Mexico border. Below is part of a statement from the U.S. State Department in regards to what is happening along the southern U.S. border with Mexico.  

Violent criminal activity fueled by a war between criminal organizations struggling for control of the lucrative narcotics trade continues along the U.S.-Mexico border. Attacks are aimed primarily at members of drug trafficking organizations, Mexican police forces, criminal justice officials, and journalists. However, foreign visitors and residents, including Americans, have been among the victims of homicides and kidnappings in the border region. In its effort to combat violence, the government of Mexico has deployed military troops in various parts of the country. U.S. citizens are urged to cooperate with official checkpoints when traveling on Mexican highways.

Recent Mexican army and police force conflicts with heavily-armed narcotics cartels have escalated to levels equivalent to military small-unit combat and have included use of machine guns and fragmentation grenades. Confrontations have taken place in numerous towns and cities in northern Mexico, including Tijuana in the Mexican state of Baja California, and Chihuahua City and Ciudad Juarez in the state of Chihuahua. The situation in northern Mexico remains very fluid; the location and timing of future armed engagements there cannot be predicted.

Armed robberies and carjackings, apparently unconnected to the narcotics-related violence, have increased in Tijuana and Ciudad Juarez. Dozens of U.S. citizens were kidnapped and/or murdered in Tijuana in 2007. Public shootouts have occurred during daylight hours near shopping areas.

Criminals are armed with a wide array of sophisticated weapons. In some cases, assailants have worn full or partial police or military uniforms and have used vehicles that resemble police vehicles.

The real reason for Bush not doing anything tangible to resolve the problems on the border is because the establishment seeks the destruction of national borders in favor of regional governments ruled by nongovernmental organizations and multinational corporations. Free trade agreements like NAFTA, CAFTA and others along with the Security and Prosperity Partnership and the Inter-American Democratic Charter are serving as a framework for a regional government much along the lines of the European Union. In fact a North American Union or a Pan American Union for all intents and purposes is already here but it is just a matter of them formulating the plans behind the scenes in preparation for a public announcement.

The only true purpose of the U.S. military is to protect and defend this country. Bush is using the U.S. military for the benefit of the military industrial complex and the international banking cartel using the war on terror fraud as an excuse for perpetual war. He has proven himself a traitor by using the U.S. military for the benefit of private interests instead of the American people. Perpetual war means perpetual profits for these private interests. With militarized small-unit combat taking place along the southern U.S. border with Mexico, a common sense approach would be to establish a military presence until the activity subsides. Another common sense approach would be to decriminalize drugs which would serve as a means to put the drug cartels out of business. Free market competition in the drug market would eliminate the drug cartels and all of the violence that comes with it. Of course, Bush is not going to do either of those things because the U.S. government benefits and profits off of the drug trade. By making drugs illegal, the U.S. government profits by facilitating the shipment of drugs into the U.S. with artificially high prices. This also allows them to put more people in privately run prisons for drug offenses.

What additional proof is needed to see that the war on terror is a complete fraud? The U.S. State Department is warning of militarized combat along the U.S.-Mexico border and we have policies encouraging illegal immigration but instead the government and the media tells us that we have to be afraid of Al-Qaeda on the other side of the world while there is a clear and present danger right in our own backyard. A declaration of war against Mexico actually makes more sense than the occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan considering what's taking place around the U.S.-Mexico border. Don't count on anything being done about it though with corrupt traitors running the show in Washington DC.
