In other news...

While I was reading about Obama's drilling decision, I came across this: Texas Town on High Alert as Mexican Town Across Border Braces for Cartel Gun Battle.

This isn't the first time violence has spilled across the border. During one of the Mexican Revolutions Rangers from across the state had to neglect other duties to be stationed in El Paso just in case violence spilled across. It was actually considered a form of entertainment to sit on roofs and watch the battle for Juarez.

Back then, the various factions all wanted to be recognized by the United States as Mexico's legitimate government. That gave them a reason to not piss us off. Nowadays, the cartels have been listening to our talk for a while. It seems like they're heeding it less and less.

Where is Captain McNelly when we need him?

(It's not like there was a lull over the last hundred years or so. There were just to many to link too. Go ahead and google it)
