The Foreign Policy blog has linked to a story about Mexican Drug Cartels employing increasingly heavy and sophisticated armored vehicles.
So this combined with cross border militant raids by said Cartels brings some important questions to mind:
1) Is this enough to justify deploying ARMED National Guard troops to the border for security or do we have to wait for them to be bring combat bridging equipment to the Hudson river?
2) How long before the BATFE decides to let M1 Abrams "walk" to see where they end up?
3) How much of a shooting war will it take to cause us to try and defund the Cartels by trying at least some legalization?
4) Will the Brady Campaign(to protect criminals by disarming the law abiding) now retract all of their "what could you possibly NEED a .50 BMG rifle for?" talking points?
