obama says "no guns for US agents in Mexico

So no protection for our agents in Mexico, pull them out, why are we giving Mexico $1.4 BILLION to fight drug cartels and they won't let our agents carry a weapon. Screw Mexicko, CLOSE the border. Lock it down, pull the troops home and station them at arms length from the Pacific to the Gulf. Good job obama.

Obama: No Arming of U.S. Agents in Mexico

Published March 03, 2011
FoxNews.com

AP

President Obama on Thursday appeared to reject the idea of arming U.S. agents in Mexico, saying after a meeting with Mexican President Felipe Calderon that the two governments will look at other ways to protect American officials in the wake of a fatal shooting last month.

The OTHER way is pull them out and lock down the border, send any and all law breaking illegals back.

Maybe they will give the agents flowers to hand out. It worked in the 60's. Peace brother, peace.

This puts our agents in Mexico in an untenable position.

If they are forbidden from protecting themselves, and their host is unwilling or unable to do so, they must be recalled.

It figures Obama would let the terms be dictated by the country that NEEDS the help.

Such a weakling he is...

Why is that even Obama's call? Does he decide uniform designs too? Aren't there people who job it is to negotiate parameters of our cooperation with foreign governments and what equipment the work requires?

Absurd. Our drug policys have basically caused a war down there. We need to change our drug laws. But even if we did that tomorrow, there would still be violence for a good long time. Asking agents to operate unarmed in what is basically a war zone is wrong and cowardly.

We very much do allow armed foreign agents into the US when they're used for security for visiting dignitaries. And, as long as we have them checked out and they're working with our guys here and not solo, yes, I'd have no problem with them being here with their guns.

What's the diff, every illegal Mexican dope runner in El Lay has guns, every gang banger has guns, maybe it's time the so called good guys can carry too.
If the US Agents can't carry in Mexico we should leave it to the Mexicans to do it and keep our $1.4 BILLION. Fight them coming across the border, close it down.

We should have made drugs legal, that way the tens of thousands of murders each year would be happening here instead of down there!

instead of fighting with mexico and do not want to help out our neighbor we are on the other side of the world for who knows how long and how much money it will ever cost. but let mexicans pick grapes in calif. for the 2 percent of the rich a-holes wine that is ok and pick the lettuce. many con. business owners in texas arizona and calif. survive on $4.00 an hour labor you would not like to turn on your greedy party people would you. hard for cons. to look in the mirror. most mexicans work harder than any con. will ever. it is also ok to vacation in cacun for cons. where are the jobs mr. bonner?

Hey Luftkopf, could you try that again, but in coherent English this time?

On second thought, don't bother.
