Texas governor Rick Perry's Big Threat to Mexico: "Boots on the ground"
"When I become the President of the United States we will have our military, our National Guard, our Border Patrol . . . enough boots on the ground to secure that border. We will have aviation assets being flown up and down that border. We will sit and talk with the new Mexican President in 2013, they're electing a new president in 2012, and together in a spirit of cooperation, because frankly if they don't work with us, Mexico has the potential to be a very very big problem."
Sounds to me like the governor, a consummate politician who would make a disastrous president, is outright threatening Mexico. "Do it our way or hit the highway," tough guy Perry appears to say.
But what is his plan for quenching the thirst for drugs of millions of his fellow Americans on the north side of the border? And what about those military assault weapons every self-respecting Texan likes to carry around in the gun rack in the back of his pickup? What's Perry's plan for shutting down the endless stream of weapons of war south, where they're used to murder thousands of innocent Mexicans every year?
The good news is the Rick Perry will never spend one day in the White House -- unless he takes the Grey Line visitor's tour.
What about this, Governor? http://mexicogulfreporter-supplement.blogspot.com/2011/11/mexicos-continuing-agony.html.
