Mexicans cruelly joke that they are taking back the American Southwest, lost in the Mexican-American war in 1848, without firing a shot.
First of all, Mexicans have fired more than a few shots, with guns provided to them by the Obama administration in a program called “Fast and Furious”. This scandal is mind boggling and it amazes me that Obama has not been impeached for it alone (not even counting Solyndra, or his dereliction of duty in regard to the Wall Street crisis and sham-reform that all but guarantees another crisis down the road).
Second of all, Mexicans who claim that they are taking back the American Southwest are correct, and we are letting them. Or should I say, Barack Obama is letting them (and George Bush before him, and Rick Perry after him?).
Last month, Texas officials released a report indicating Mexico-based drug gangs are intent on creating a “sanitary zone” on the U.S. side of the Rio Grande, and are “intimidating landowners” in south Texas into allowing them to use their property as “permanent bases” for drug smuggling activity. <source>
Read that paragraph a few times and behold the present and future of the destruction of American sovereignty. Also behold this reality: we are under attack by armed groups making war against our country, directly, and on our own soil.
