Somewhat interesting. Here is a link to another newspaper account:

Mexico confirms confrontation with Border Patrol agents - latimes.com

Note that where this incident took place is where there is no fence or anything else to show where the 'border' is.

Now, what these two guys were up to? I like the theory floated in the article that they may well have been rogue soldiers out to protect drug smugglers.

Or, it could be as the article stated the Mexican government as claiming: that they were two soldiers who thought they were chasing drug smugglers, who turned out to be US agents.

This is not the first time this has happened. It has happened in the past and Border Patrol believes the Mexican military is holding BP so drug smugglers can move their loads through in another area.

If the Border Patrol is facing armed Mexican troops and/or gangs that are too tough for them then THAT is where the National Guard needs to be.

The military is wholly unequipped to patrol the border. Think about the cost, logistical challenges, and impracticability of replacing the US border patrol with the US Army. Just because a few dirty mexican soldiers do something like this is no reason to over react and start an military build up along the border. Unless you are secretly plotting the invasion of Mexico for a second time this should be a complete nonstarter.

Shrug, I *DO* think our military has a place guarding our border. They certainly have some nice equipment for it.

But not acting like cops-more along the lines of running the drones, and active combat situations which are rare.
