    And you don't view a drug cartel doing something like that as something that needs to be taken care of immediately?

    sounds like a grade "B" movie:

    The Los Zetas drug cartel is an offshoot of the elite Mexican military trained in special ops. The mercenary organization is said to include members of corrupt Mexican Federales, politicians as well as drug traffickers. The group was once part of the Gulf cartel, but has since splintered and now directly competes with the Gulf cartel for premium drug smuggling routes in the Texas region.

    Somehow I have this suspicion that this is some kind of scare campaign as well, for a number of reasons. At the very least is a crisis du jour that will probably inevitably be exploited to it's fullest extent.

    As Rahm Emmanuel once said "Never let a crisis go to waste".

    Or as Dick Cheney said, "If a crisis doesn't present itself, create one."

    If you will bother to check into it this whole thing is a hoax. Another pathetic effort to herd the country into an anti-anybody else ferver. It's fake. A fraud. Didn't happen. Not even Fox News is reporting this so that should tell you something.

    The words "act of war" are used twice in the first three sentences of the linked article. Who needs reason or decency when we're at fucking war, people?

    :wink:

    Seriously?


    If someone "takes over a couple of houses" we call out the SWAT team and put the whole thing live on the news! Don't act like this is nothing.

    From a GOP blog:
    Laredo Ranches Safe... For Now | Texas GOP Vote
    This weekend a story about two ranches near Laredo, Texas being overrun by the infamous Los Zetas drug cartel spread through the internet like a California grass fire. The story went so far as to call the intrusion "an act of war" against the United States.
    After checking several credible sources, the story was concluded as being false according to US Border Watch president Curtis Collier. Collier stated, "We have checked our contacts in the Laredo area including media contacts, Laredo Police, Webb County Sheriff's Office and the Texas Department of Public Safety. All sources confirm this story is inaccurate."
    Collier continued, "We will continue to monitor this story for any further developments, but for now consider this issue closed."
    Contacts in the Laredo DPS office stated, "We have not heard about this story, but if something like that was going on, we would be supporting the Webb County Sheriff's Department. Everything is normal in Laredo, Texas."
    Webb County Sheriff's office stated, "We have been inundated with calls on this matter. We have received no 911 calls related to this. There is nothing going on in our county at this time."
