Today, parts of the American southwest have become lawless again. In the nineteenth century, technology did not exist and the population was sparse. Law enforcement was stretched over vast areas. Today, we have technology. There is a sizable population there and technology does things we can still barely imagine.
The difference today? We have a government that does not care about protecting this country or its citizens.
The most recent example of this popped up a few days ago. The Mexican drug cartels, the same ones that recently murdered an American citizen on a border lake, sent assassins into Arizona.
They are upset that bandits are stealing their loads of marijuana, heroin and cocaine, destined for American markets.
At a certain level, it is justice, having one group of drug dealers take out another. But for America, this is a dangerous turn. Mexican cartels have been sending drugs into America at an alarming rate. One of their routes of choice is the Velkol valley in Arizona.
Paul Babeu is the Sheriff of Pinal County says there have already been drug smuggling related murders. He knows how bad the situation is. He requested the Federal Government send three thousand soldiers to come in and disrupt the drug smuggling routes. He notes the cartels have spotters in the hills and the spotters and assassins have equipment, at least equal to anything law enforcement has and probably as good as anything the military would have.
No matter where people fall on the issue of illegal immigration, you would think that everyone would agree stopping drug smuggling into this country is a good idea. Stopping drug cartels from importing violence into this country is a good idea.
In response to Sheriff Babeu’s request, the Obama regime sent him fifteen signs to put up, warning people that entering certain areas was dangerous due to drug smugglers.
Perhaps those signs should have warned Americans how dangerous the Obama regime is.
