Mexican pirates mess with Texas

Will Congress applaud this, too? Don’t put it past them.

SAN ANTONIO – With machine-guns in hand,  Mexico’s deadliest cartel is patrolling the waters of a Texas border lake.

These pirates have already ambushed three, possibly four boats, operating with virtual impunity as they make off with cash and electronics.

It’s happening on Falcon Lake in Zapata, 200 yards from the Mexican border.

Video report here.

Where the heck are the Feds?

Oh, right. The Obama administration has taken its stand with Mexico, and against the US. There’s no will to protect Americans under siege. Perhaps the Feds will intervene when Texans fight back. Intervene against the Texans, that is.

Where are the Texas marshals? Perry better wake up from his re-election stupor while he still has a state to govern.

Are you freaking kidding me? What part of “secure our borders” does Obama not understand.

This can’t be true…can it? and no one is doing anyhting about it? Surely this is propaganda of some kind.

I live near Corpus Christi, TX and heard this on the local radio show yesterday. Gov. Perry better get on this NOW! It is bad enough those mexicans police are coming into the U.S. and threatening us, now they are going after our people on U.S. waters.

Texas always talks big, time to walk the talk. Either remember the Alamo or it will be remember Falcon Lake where it all ended.

Pirates? Call the Navy. They shoot pirates.

Seal sniper team tryouts in the offing…

Where the hell is the National Guard?

I wonder what would happen if Texans took it upon themselves to go out and fight back – in kind – in the absence of any support from our federal government?

Wait… you are upset that the Feds aren’t going over to the Mexican side of the lake? From the article it sounds like everyone knows that the Mexican side is not patrolled and it is dangerous.

Texans, like everybody else, have a right to defend themselves. So… why isn’t that lake being flooded (no pun intended) with every kind of boat (from canoes to yachts) loaded with ‘good old boys’ armed for bear?

If the Mexicans want a fight… then give’em one damn it!
