23 February 2007: On February 11, 2007, a tractor-trailer registered in Texas and containing a large shipment of weapons, ammunition and a Nissan pickup truck fitted with armor and bullet-proof glass was stopped by the Mexican army in Matamoros, just south of the U.S. border at Brownsville, Texas.

The weapons seized included 18 M-16 assault rifles, including at least one equipped with an M-203 40mm grenade launcher, several M-4 carbines, 17 handguns of various calibers, over 200 magazines for different weapons, and more than 8,000 rounds of ammunition, assault vests and other military accessories.

Where was the truck headed? Was it headed north to the States?
If someone finds out please let me know. Just Curious...Thanks

How can they not know where the truck was headed...Did the truck not have a driver?
Yet another Border story that I have heard nothing about on tv.

My guess is it was headed for the U.S., somebody had some fire power there and intended to do bodily harm..lol..

This is such a joke that we actually believe Mexico wants to only run legal trucks through our states!! They are probably thinking what stupid gringo's they trust us to think we want to be honest!!! This is just an easier way for them to run drugs and illegals faster. Out government is thinking with something else besides their supposedly well educated brains!!!
