I'm feeling really angry these days about the AIG bailout/our foreign policy to just name a few...

I am not scheduled to go to the M-16 ranges for another couple of weeks. Hopefully then, I can channel my anger/frustration on targets. So here's some of the embers of my anger...but let me preface that I am not on some "America for Americans" nationalism or have I become some "Super Patriot". I am a brick in a wall that struggling to support a faulty foundation. We never learn from history. We think that we are entitled and full of hubris and that no one can do it better...let me stop ranting and breathe...breathe...breathe...

Here are my thoughts...

So the drug wars are outta control across the border with Mexico. I feel sorry for that Mexican border city called Juarez. I saw on CNN that they had over 1600 drug related murders last year. Mass graves and unknown victims. Not to mention, the Texas city of El Paso is also catching bodies like flies on flypaper too. The cartels are buying weapons in the US and supplying our country with cocoa. Supply an demand. Coke and a smile. Dollar, Dollar Bill Y'all...



We got 4,000 troops heading to A-stan in a few-most likely the 4th brigade combat team(BCT) of the 82nd Airborne stationed here at Fort Bragg. Less gate traffic and fewer lines at the food court(I'm with that on a selfish note ;-) but the real deal to me is priority.

US Border Patrol agents are understaffed/underequipped and outgunned. The National Guard is often stretched thin due to deployments and there aren't enough Federal Marshal's. If the cartels are a national security threat, then why won't we deal with them as such? We are so focused on the threat of Al Qaeda overseas in A-stan where the Commander in Chief runs the grave risk everydayof getting into a deeper quagmire. How many wars can you fight and again, what is the priority??? WTF - we are gonna give Pakistan about 1.5 Billion a year for the next five years but yet OUR economy/infrastructure is f****d up and corporate cocksuckers walk away with our taxpayer money. We're told to suck it up. F*** that!

Bring our troops home to fight the cartels with the same vim & vigor you want them to have in fighting this GWOT(Global War on Terror). Our border security is a military mission and the mission is clear: Follow the money. Kill the Cartels. BTW, The immigration issue is a whole another debate and is unfortunately mired in this drug war.

God forbid if Mr/Mrs. Al Qaeda or their friends The Talibans decide that they want to visit the US and the best travel deal is via Mexico and across the border. Or if an enough Americans get killed in the crossfire. Then what's the excuse????

Now that I have vented, I'm cool...for now.
