Gangs Drive Off Cops, Terrorize Mexican Town: Los Angeles?
By: John Lillpop
Reading the headline, “Gangs Drive Off Cops, Terrorize Mexican Town,” could easily cause one to assume that the town in question was Los Angeles, California.
The mistake would be understandable because Los Angeles is under the mayor ship of Antonio Villaraigosa, himself a Mexican national, who has converted a once world-class city into a safe haven for illegal aliens and other third world criminals.
In point of fact, however, the story is about carnage and violence in Villa Ahumada, a city in the nation of Mexico, where the “cactus-studded horizon” is the one thing that makes it distinguishable from Los Angeles.
As reported at Yahoo News, in part:
“VILLA AHUMADA, Mexico â€“ For people caught inside Mexico’s drug corridors, life is about keeping your head down and watching your back, especially when the sun dips behind the cactus-studded horizon.
No town knows this better than Villa Ahumada, where the entire police force quit after 70 cartel hit men roared through last spring, killing the police chief, two officers and three townspeople.
Residents were left defenseless again last week when gunmen returned and kidnapped nine people, despite the soldiers manning checkpoints far outside town.
“This was a mellow town where we would walk along main street at night. But now we’re too scared to even go out,” said Zaida de Santiago.”
Another difference between Los Angeles and Villa Ahumada:
Being “a mellow town where people would walk along main street at night” might have been an appropriate description of Los Angeles 20 years ago, but not since the arrival of millions of illegal aliens and Antonio Villaraigosa.
President Obama and Janet Napolitano, Obama’s dreadful mistake at Homeland Security, need to keep a watchful eye on events in Mexico so as to assure that Los Angeles is the only American city lost to the abyss of third-world Mexico.
Given the gravity of the situation in Mexico, Obama should also seriously consider a preemptive strike by the U.S. military to keep Mexico’s tawdry mess from spilling over into the United States.
