While the United States “Justice” Department is running guns into Mexico against the policies of that failed nation, the source of violence in Mexico – the drug cartels – run unchecked and they resort to terrorizing modes that require no guns.
Overnight the cartels battling in Nuevo Laredo strung-up 23 people from a bridge, which made the morning commute a bit more scenic. To reenforce the point that they, and not the government, are in control of the region an additional 14 severed heads were tossed onto the steps of city hall.
Call it a strong suggestion on their part.
These nearly daily instances will not detour Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama in their lonely push to enact gun control via treaty. Mexico and other questionable governments in Latin America uniformly restricted firearm access with the CIFTA treaty, which Obama seeks to ratify here. This certainly has rasied survival barriers for citizens though the cartels continue to acquire military arms from defeated revolutionary groups thruohout the region.
Like incompetent doctors, Barry and Hillary look to treat minor symptoms instead of curing the disease. The cancer is cartels that have powerful profit motivations and know death to be a practical bargaining tool. Until such time as the profit motive is removed, or until the risk of running drugs grows larger that the cash flow, strange fruits will appear below the border.
