Mexican Government Opens Investigation Into Gunwalker

From Human Events:

Rahm Emanuel, when he was Obama's chief of staff, famously said that no crisis should ever go to waste if it could advance the agenda. Did Obama go Rahm one better, advancing the gun-control agenda by manufacturing a crisis caused by gunrunning into Mexico, where one of the gunrunners was the U.S. government?

Members of the Mexican Congress think the answer is yes and have opened their own investigation. From the Mexican standpoint, Operation Fast and Furious was an act of war on Mexico.

For Americans of a certain age, the next question is, "What did the President know, and when did he know it?"

I remember reading that they let enough small arms go across the border to equip a battalion of troops. This is not going to turn out well for the office of the President, let alone Obama.

I will cheerfully assist in extraditing anyone who can be shown to be involved. Thatís even though I think Mexican prison is too good for the anti-rights drug cartel enabling thugs.

Act of war? Causus belli? Bring it on, muchachos!

Among other things, it would allow us automatically to deport all Mexican nationals at once, and truly 'militarize' the border.

Mexico has long encouraged their dirt-bags and unemployable to 'migrate' north, live like parasites, and wire the loot home.

Gunwalker can only stir the pot and encourage further 'migration'.

Let me see if I get this right. Guns to Mexico is an act of war. Mexican troops crossing the border and shooting at Americans is not. Please pardon me, but I could care less what the Mexican government wants or needs. The want it all their way, just like Obie. They want open borders to their north, but carefully close their borders to the south and have the nerve to lecture our Congress. Screw mexico.

This scandal needs to get wider coverage definitely. Can't say I understand the hatred directed at people who are desperate for work and a better life. Blame the people who employ them or the corrupt, moronic government unable to provide them with adequate opportunities, but don't blame them. Maybe some of you gents will be able to empathize more when you immigrate to China looking for work in say, 10 years or so.

Nothing wrong with people who want a better life. The problem is with the people who ignore the law in that quest.

Cannot walk to China, maybe Canadolia or Canukistan?
