TIME For the Truth
Calderon didn't start the Mexican drug war -- we did
Tim Padgett -- Time Magazine -- July 6
~~~ /// ~~~
Day of the Dead
    [...] A Criminal Insurgency
    It has been more than four years since Calderón started a military campaign against spiraling drug savagery, backed by a $1.5 billion pledge of U.S. aid. The cartels — there are at least six major gangs and several smaller outfits — reacted by unleashing a wave of violence, fighting for turf. Calderón insists this shows the gangs are rattled, but his critics say his strategy has often made matters worse. Drug lords are now engaged in an arms race, firing everything from assault rifles to rocket-propelled grenades at the army, police, rival gangsters and any civilians who get in their way.

As I explained to Sen. John McCain last year, the Mexican drug war started when we began building the border fence along the Goldwater bombing range in Arizona. Cartels began fighting over remaining routes into the U.S.
    The MSM refuse to admit this because they, along with the entire liberal establishment, including McCain, hate the fence (and me for telling the truth) with a passion usually reserved for the likes of Adolph Hitler.
    And, to prove we don't need a fence anyway and can grant amnesty, the NY Times is now telling us Mexicans are staying home.

Are they Hispanics or Americans?   
The recent proposed legislation in Texas, though mild by the standards of Arizona and other states, was a step in the right direction.
