    You responded to a post that I posted to someone else earlier in the thread.

    Your president will leap to embrace their apology and take no action whatsoever.
    You are assuming the Mexican military were flying it.

    Good post.

    In this case however, the Mexicans called to apologize already.

    OK That's good.

    It is possible, however, for a cartel to have a helicopter like that. The Zetas are ex-military and they would know how to fly it.

    That is entirely possible, no doubt. These days it's interesting that nobody got it on video. I wonder what type helicopter it was?

    And now, after 100 years of prohibition, we have a situation in which the smugglers are military-qualified and equipped.

    Lets see...no borders, no laws enforced, and a president that has consistently proved himself to be a weak little bitch that has no respect on the world stage.

    Well...gosh...how could this POSSIBLY have happened.

    If it quacks and waddles it is a duck... Most have a CON of some sort in them, your CONs hows when it comes to the border.

    As a fella who used to duck and dodge rifle shots I can assure you it gets a look but not the sole focus you have to keep your head on a swivel. The sound of a vehicle engine or two can draw the same focus because 'misdirection' isn't unknown...

    Course to be effective for longer than a New York Minute the Border Agents have to get on the horn and call for help- so more than two shots would seem required.

    But you seem to think the BPs are ill trained and disciplined so silly movie tricks work in the real world, I will not dissuade you....

    Quack on McDuck....

    Well... gosh... indeed! Of course when it happened during BushII's time I guess he was being a weak little bitch as well... (just go through Lou Dobbs' many 'reports' on Mexican Military crossing the border while he worked at CNN- he left as Obama took office)

    Then again for all the CONs of that day ranted about 'securing the border' the best they could do was a few miles of barrier at a very hefty profit for a few buddies.

    Laws are enforced, more have been deported with Obama in the Office than BushII, but of course CONs focus on ONE part of deportaion being suspended as millions more are being sent back...
