No, this is not a recruiting photo for GI JOE’S arch enemy. These are Mexican police officers. And this is what they look like when they’re off duty. Anyway, anyone still confused as to why Mexicans come to this country need only look as far as the news today (and every day for the last three decades).

“The chief of police in the Mexican border city of Nuevo Laredo has been shot dead along with at least two of his bodyguards, officials say.

Former military officer Manuel Farfan had been in the job in Tamaulipas state for only 33 days. He was reportedly ambushed by gunmen as he was being driven home.

Nuevo Laredo, across the border from Texas, is a battleground for rival gangs vying to control drug smuggling routes into the US.” – BBC NEWS

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again (and I’ll probably say it a few more times after that): Mexico is a dangerously failed state which poses more of a security threat to the U.S. than all the Middle Eastern countries combined.

I like Mexicans. Hell, deep down I really like everyone. And illegal immigration would be a non-issue if Mexico were an actual country with an actual government. And laws. And less poverty. And fewer police chiefs being shot to death. And I can do without their music but that’s a personal thing. I’m sure the Mexican neighbors I used to have didn’t care for the racket I would blare at 3 AM.

Mexicans deserve a country of their own. And it’s really no fault of the average Mexican that their country is a flaming pile of piss and shit where it rains bullets and shrapnel most days of the year. If anything, it’s ours.

As we are seeing in Egypt right now the days of America propping up violent and corrupt regimes are coming to an end. Mexico’s pathetic excuse for a government is in place largely because we keep it there. And the drug cartels playing Grand Theft Auto on the streets are there because America buys drugs. Lots and lots of drugs. I mean it’s really quite astounding the amount of narcotics we buy.

If we’re going to go halfway around the world and topple governments in Iraq (yeah, remember that place?) and Afghanistan then why can’t we do it right next door? Come on, they have oil and everything. I’m sure we’ll be greeted as liberators. We’ll be in Mexico City by lunchtime!

Then again, perhaps that’s just what Cobra Commander wants us to do…
