    You might be right about that. I beleived GWB when he said Iraq had WMD. I must get more cynical.

    The illegals who were shot are from Guatemala, not Mexico. And it doesn't matter one whit if the conditions in their home country are worse for them, they still cannot invade another country because they cannot manage their own.

    Excellent! I can only imagine how we would feel if that were happening to us. I can almost guarantee we would NOT be happy, and we would be ready to stop it by any means possible. As I am sure they are. "Oops" doesn't make it acceptable to those affected...

    Yup... Only in Texas... [/FONT][/COLOR]
    Obviously you're not from Texas.

    If you are pulled over by the cops here in Texas...and they search you and/or your vehicle for guns or knives....and you don't have any. They give you one of each. That's by order of the Governor of the Great State of Insanity, Rick Perry...

    Texas is one of the most "right to bear arms...and use them" states in the nation.

    If the State Troopers can't shoot from helicopters...so what? They'll compensate...not sure how, but you can bet on it. Perry will make sure of that.

    Are you trying to push Hillary Clinton's old lies about some of the 9/11 highjackers coming through Canada?

    That's true, no better or worse if you have the intel. The military has intel, and the State Police probably don't. So they're assuming that these people are illegal and violating due process.

    I don't like using drones domestically. In a warzone, I'm fine with it.

    The shooter was suspended, which makes your posts about target shooting illegals from a helo even more of a made-up situation. And again, they were shooting to disable the truck, I doubt they were targetting the rear of the vehicle.

    Well, it's not happening to us and it wouldn't happen to them if they would stop trying to break into this country. Btw, do you know what happens when you try to border jump Mexico? That's right, they shoot at your ass.

    I agree with the war zone use of drones - always have, as stated previously.

    However, are you suggesting that the Texas troopers have no intel about who's in the pick-up truck they're shooting at? Don't you think they've followed them, perhaps using drones on the border, watched them cross and when they truck refused to stop for authorities they opened fire on them? And you're right, the military does have intel, usually that one or two prime targets are on the move, and they attempt to take them out, often killing many if not dozens of other innocents who just happen to be in the facinity of the bomb. Not much due process there.

    The police weren't shooting at the people for one. Another thing, that truck could have been carrying anything from drugs to arms that makes these smugglers dangerous people.
    It could have been carrying children on the way to school and that's why you don't fire at vehicles from a helicopter if you don't know what's in them. You ever tried to shoot a gun from a moving vehicle? Now picture that vehicle is 500 feet in the air and vibrating like you wouldn't believe. Pinpoint accurate, right?

    They were shooting at people.
