WTH?

Sheriff Larry Dever of Cochise County, Ariz., one of four Arizona counties contiguous with the U.S-Mexico border, said Friday that the U.S. Border Patrol has pulled back from parts of the border in his and neighboring counties because manning those areas has become too dangerous.

oh.....but it's not bad there they say???
I think those who say that next, should have their
butts placed down there to guard the border.
None of them, would have the testicular fortitude to do it.

It's very dangerous - border patrol agents have been killed, routinely attempted stonings take place - and the government allows it to continue, even encourages illegals to come.

Funny, you'll never see this on the news. What cowards we have running this country.

It's disgusting, and will only get worse. I read an article about border patrol suicides today on Antiwar.com. Illegals waltz in, and suck the giant udder, while border patrols kill themselves.

I don't know what to say, other than I am simply appalled at this.
Border patrol pulling back? Too dangerous? Afraid of creating an international incident?

Mexico has already created an international incident by allowing their uneducated breeders to infiltrate this once great nation.

Mexico (http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/tw/tw_4755.html - broken link)

It's already bad enough that the Federal Government has issued warnings about travel to Mexico.

What more needs to happen to American citizens here and in Mexico before someone in charge grows some nuts and does the right thing?

As long as the murders, rapes, kidnappings, ID theft, and credit fraud is happening to everyone EXCEPT our elected local/state/federal officials, their family members, and close friends -- illegal entry into the U.S. is officially NOT A PROBLEM.

I know very well that past administrations are just as responsible for this lack security along the
border however the 'HOPE' & 'CHANGE' seems to have
found another direction with the current administration
and it's very clear that in the last eighteen months our
National Security has played out by an agenda that Obama
has been instructed to follow

  • promoting the view that America is institutionally an oppressive nation
  • depicting American military actions as unjust, unwarranted, and immoral
  • promoting open borders, mass immigration, and a watering down of current immigration laws
  • promoting a dramatic expansion of social welfare programs funded by ever-escalating taxes
  • promoting social welfare benefits and amnesty for illegal aliens
  • defending the civil rights and liberties of suspected anti-American terrorists and their abetters
  • financing the recruitment and training of future activist leaders of the political Left
  • advocating America's unilateral disarmament and/or a steep reduction in its military spending
  • opposing the death penalty in all circumstances
  • promoting socialized medicine in the United States
  • bringing American foreign policy under the control of the United Nations
  • advocating stricter gun-control measures
  • advocating the legalization of marijuana

Then there's that area in Arizona that's been posted, warning people to stay off, because the cartels are using it to transport drugs, and now the BP has to retreat. I can't think of another administration that would have allowed this to continue.

Buenos Aires National Wildlife refuge... Organ Pipe National monument, Ironwood National forest... not safe if you're alone and unarmed. All within about 20-30 minutes of my location. This situation should be a national embarrassment.
