Border Heating Up

Thousands of Mexican soldiers pour into the country's most violent city in crackdown on drug gangs

Armed to the hilt, they came from land and air, determined to restore order to Mexico's most violent city.
Nearly 2,000 Mexican soldiers and armed federal police poured into the border town of Ciudad Juarez last weekend.
The city - just across from El Paso in Texas - has been ravaged by drug gangs. Just this month 250 people were killed there by hitmen fighting for lucrative smuggling routes......

Look for cross-border violence to heat up pretty quick!

Wonder what the Texas boys are going to do when the troops start across the border? I don't even want to think about it!

This situation looks like it is gonna be getting pretty grim, pretty fast!
Although I know that Texas can handle it!
Thank God for Texas!

This story ran on our local newstation (KRGV-TV Weslaco) last night, thought it had some bearing on this. Just some oldtimers that are tired of being scared in their own homes and are taking steps.
