    Did you know that 25,000 people, most of them Mexicans, have already been killed in this war?

    Were you just not paying attention?

    Obama will probably remain completely quiet on this. Of course, the sherrif is a Republican, so who can blame him.

    A huge part of this illegal immigration law in AZ is designed to stop the massive amounts of drug trafficking that is being ignored from coming across their borders.

    Just another bullet in the chamber of what is going to be a helluva fight in the coming days. And as always, the liberals are on the wrong side, this time aiding and abetting the types that make threats like this.
    An unidentified man, with an unidentified wife, receives a text message from an unidentified number. This text message supposedly says that a Cartel is seeking the head of Joe Arpaio. Well, that is the first time I've ever heard of a Cartel offering money for someone's head when they could just as easily have one of their own in America do it without broad casting it to some random phone number.

    Sounds like bull**** made up by Arizona supporters to me. Did they happen to find any backward C's in the text message?

    I'm not averse to that. It's clear that the cartels are at war and will take out innocent citizens at will if it suits them. I have no problem sending troops in to work with Mexico's forces to destroy them. Better yet, we need to get people in undercover to root out the rats on the inside who are giving away the Mexican governments plans to the cartels.

    No. It would create sympathy for him and paint Mexicans as a barbaric people. Obviously you've never seen people trying to paint the other side as violent in hopes to justify an action. They can point at this message and say:

    "See this is why we want them out!"

    The ones who are making the threats are certainly barbaric.

    You would have a point if the article were generally about Mexicans rather than specifically about drug cartels.

    Well that is who Mexicans are associate with aren't they? They are smuggled with drugs and guns. Cut off the illegal immigrant trade, cut off the drug/weapons smuggling. As I said, the fact there is so little detail makes me think this is just made up to give some sympathy to people like Arpaio. Mexican drug cartels have more than enough power to simply have one of their members do the deed.

    I guess to a racist way of thinking, sure.

    That doesn't preclude them making a legitimate threat and offer.

    Most of our best assassination squads in the Americas work hand in hand with the drug cartels....
