This is not a drill, this is for real. Mexican troops may have driven into the United States territory and then taken military action against apparent civilians, then seemingly fled the area back into Mexico. Is this the cooperation of which President Obama and Janet Napolitano spoke when saying that Mexico and the U.S. were cooperating in the war on drugs? If our troops had gone into Mexico like this it would have been a major international incident with us apologizing profusely and maybe someone bowing to someone else. As it is, our agents are not allowed to be armed within Mexico, even when in the most dangerous areas and on potentially dangerous assignments because Mexico forbids it, yet they take the liberty of sending their armed troops across our border. How times have changed - we are now a third world nation for all purposes from what I can tell!
My bet is that Mexico will deny it was their military but look at the video. You tell me, do you think military like vehicles carrying armed men are the norm near border crossing points in Mexico. Yes they are, in the form of Mexican Immigration authorities, Mexican Customs authorities, Mexican police officials on the state and federal levels and of course - Mexican Military personnel. As opposed to the USA, Mexico regularly has armed military personnel near its borders. It's not likely these were cartel members driving around freely like that at the border, it is very likely they were in the Mexican army.
