    So Mexico wants us to be just as disarmed as they are huh? In other words, they want us to share in the crimes that they have too? Great, I’m sure Obomba and the rest of his Anti Constitutional party will get all over this one in a hurry.

    Mexican Ambassador Renews Call for US Cooperation in Drug War

    By Michael Bowman
    Washington
    12 April 2009

    Mexico's ambassador to the United States says there must be extensive cooperation between the two countries to defeat drug cartels that have killed thousands of people in Mexico's northern border states. The ambassador spoke in Washington days before President Barack Obama heads to Mexico to meet with President Felipe Calderon.

    Mexican Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan says his government is engaged in a fierce battle with drug traffickers that export illegal narcotics to the United States, but that Mexico cannot win the battle alone. "You need two to tango [dance]. And as Mexico seeks to shut down the flow of drugs coming into the United States from Mexico and South America, we need the support of the United States to shut down the flow of weapons and bulk cash [into Mexico]," he said.

    The Obama administration has boosted the number of federal agents and augmented other resources along the U.S. border with Mexico in response to the increasing violence by drug gangs. In addition, President Obama has dispatched Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and other top officials to Mexico to formulate a coordinated response to the trafficking threat. Mr. Obama has noted that the United States must reduce its appetite for illegal drugs.

    Ambassador Sarukhan praised the flurry of consultations between the two countries, as well as the boost in U.S. personnel along the border. He expressed reluctance to comment on American domestic affairs, but suggested that a renewal of the now-expired U.S. ban on assault weapons would be helpful in curbing the flow of high-powered armaments to Mexican drug cartels.

    "We have seen a dramatic rise [in the number] of assault weapons being seized in Mexico. There is a direct correlation between the expiration of the assault weapons ban, and our seizures of assault weapons. We cannot determine how [the U.S.] Congress and the [Obama] administration will move on this. What we will say is this is one of the instruments -- by reinstating the ban -- that could have a profound impact on the number and caliber of weapons going down to Mexico," he said.

    U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has voiced support for reinstating the assault weapons ban, which expired in 2004, saying it would be beneficial to both the United States and Mexico.

    Asked about the safety of visitors to Mexico, Ambassador Sarukhan said that, while the drug war has engulfed the country's northernmost states, the rest of the Mexico is safe for visitors and tourists. He urged anyone traveling to the border cities of Tijuana and Ciudad Juarez to be cautious.

    President Obama heads to Mexico City Thursday for an overnight stay before continuing to Trinidad and Tobago for the fifth Summit of the Americas. Combating border violence is expected to top discussions with Mexican President Felipe Calderon, along with trade and commercial issues and immigration concerns.

    Mexicans comprise a large proportion of the more than 12 million illegal immigrants in the United States. During last year's presidential campaign, Barack Obama pledged to pursue comprehensive U.S. immigration reform. He has not spoken in detail on the issue since taking office in January.

    It's absolutely disgusting how these anti-gunners operate. The Mexicans telling us, we need to get rid of our 'assault weapons' is no less a request from our own politicians. I'm not fooled.

    Hey Felipe!
    Nice to meet you.

    Here's the deal.
    You take back 10 million of your compadres, stop all drugs from crossing the boarder, AND foot half the bill for the fence/security.
    THEN we'll talk about stopping illegal US weapons from entering your precious country.

    Clean up the crap in your own back yard you waste of oxygen.

    I don't know about you but I think even the Mexican cartels are smart enough to realize that the hassle of obtaining a semi-automatic AK47 of AR15 from the US for an exorbitant price is a bit stupid when those cartels can obtain the fully-automatic version from the 3rd world for a fifth the price, if not less, and not have to worry about smuggling it through the US border... Perhaps this guy isn't very well versed in math... or logic... ?

    Exactly! This is why I suspect the US Attorney General's Office has requested that these idiots blame the US in order to create a crisis situation. We all know crisis breeds a call to action. There's no doubt the Liberals know this. I think it's orchestrated to create a call to action for another so-called 'assault weapons' ban. I'm not playing into the conspiracy theorists' ideas on this one. This is a direct play from Saul Alinsky's 'Rules for Radicals'. It also reflects Rahm Emanuel's thought on the idea that conspiracy creates a call to action when he said following the election, "Never allow a crisis to go to waste." Emanuel was a key orchestrator of the first 'assault weapons' ban during the Clinton administration. There has to be a crisis to enact a call to action. I believe this is part of the crisis. The Liberals have been shown their hind ends when seeking evidence that so-called 'assault weapons' are a problem in the US by the Justice Department, FBI, ATF, et al... Now they're seeking other sources for confirmation of a fictional problem. What better source than a country that GREATLY needs US dollars to flourish? Coincidence?... I don't think so... :mad:
