Armed Mexican troops question American soldiers

 

Turn the southern border into the iron curtain, create gulags for children, put toddlers in the docket,  put armed soldiers on each side of the border , and then engage in a cycle of demonizing the " Mexicans ".

 

 

What could go wrong?

There is the fact that much of the world considers the Mexican President to be eminently sane, while there is considerable doubt worldwide about tRump...

"On April 13, 2019, at approximately 2 p.m. CDT, five to six Mexican military personnel questioned two U.S. Army soldiers who were conducting border support operations in an unmarked (Customs and Border Protection) vehicle near the southwest border in the vicinity of Clint, Texas," US Northern Command told CNN in a statement.
 
"The US soldiers were appropriately in US territory" during the encounter, the statement added.
During the incident, the Mexican soldiers pointed their weapons at the US troops, removing a soldier's sidearm and returning it to the unmarked US vehicle, the officials said.
 
The Mexican troops were armed with what appeared to be assault rifles, according to one official.
 
Posse Comitatus Violations By Trump

In this case, the soldiers were operating correctly.  They were not enforcing the law, but were there in support of the Border Patrol.  Technically the Mexican soldiers were in the wrong, even though it was a misunderstanding on their part.  But they had no right to point their weapons at our military or relieve the soldier of his sidearm.

 

Further, they and their superiors were at fault in not insuring that such an incident would happen with their operating so close to the border, especially since it was so vague given the brush and dry riverbed.

 

The Posse Comitatus law doesn't apply in the reason that military was on the border.  Without doubt partianism is involved in these posts as usual.  I wouldn't praise the Mexican soldiers for operating across our border.

Good for the Mexican troops - they were doing their jobs correctly!

 

The American troops were doing what they thought was right - but both tRump and their superiors had their heads planted where it's dark and smelly...

 

tRump can take his stupidity and ignorance of the Constitution and disrespect for the law - and put it where the sun doesn't shine - next to his head - so he can read about what he's done or said wrong in the last half hour -and have a moronic childish temper tantrum and display - with more tweets - to the world - that his mind is slipping further and further with every passing day...
