A National Guard unit retreated from confronting an armed probe of our territory by an unknown group as per orders from the federal government. The unknown group then returned to Mexico. There are suspicions that this unknown group is related to drugs though no real evidence seems to exist to back that suspicion up.
This article claims that patrolling the border has made it more difficult to get drugs into the United States. This claim sound very interesting since supposedly we are spending millions and maybe billions to fight the war on drugs and no one seemed to have though of toughening the border before this.
National Guard Sgt. Edward Balaban claims the unit does not know how many individuals were involved because it was dark. This claim opens up a new can of worms since you would think a unit that was intended to observe illegal crossings would have the needed equipment to observe those crossings even in the dark.
The question I have now is why does the federal government spent so much money on the war on drugs while leaving such an obvious hole in our defense as the border and are our military and law enforcement personal stationed there equipped to handle the mission they are assigned.
In other news a California National Guard helicopter crashes injuring several individuals. The cause of the accident are still under investigation but considering that the helicopter was moving personal to secure a remote area and the prior event I question if maybe enemy action was the cause. My suspicions do not have enough support to be anything else but a weak maybe.
Two Mexican states are proposing giving GPS trackers to those individuals attempting to invade the United States but due to treaty obligation they have to get the consent of the U.S. Since giving the trackers to those individuals would be an act of war I can see the sense of the treaty in question. The Mexican states say that giving the trackers to those invaders is a human rights issue but the invader are proposing to violate the rights of the people of the United States to have secure border. These invaders are making a choice to risk their life in order to violate the rights of others and the government of Mexico or United States should not condone or encourage such behavior.Source 1
