The signature crimes of the most violent drug cartel in Mexico are its beheading and dismemberment of rival gang members, military personnel, law enforcement officers and public officials, and the random kidnappings and killings of civilians who get caught in its butchery and bloodletting.
But this disparate band of criminals known as Los Zetas is no longer just a concern in Mexico.

Comment: While incursions like this are far too common place, Senators McCain, Lieberman, Kerry, and Graham continue to beat the war drum for additional imperialistic conquests in Libya and Syria, with the eventual culmination leading to Iran. Are you repeal naysayers getting the message yet? Our borders are left wide open and our Senate is helping to make war around the world for global corporatists. Does this seem out of whack to you? It does to me.
We need a senate that will protect and defend the Constitution and preserve the Union, not destroy it and use our limited resources for folly abroad. We need senators that will represent the issues that are truly effecting their states in the Federal Government, but that won't happen in its present state. Only when the 17th is repealed will the states have their rightful place in the Federal Government and then our border states will receive the attention and resources needed to block these incursions that would be considered acts of war in another time.
