No wonder Mexicans are fleeing to the United States

May 12, 2008

There is a massive Drug War going on in Mexico.

Drug cartels seeking to keep control over huge swathes of Mexico have been on a rampage. In the past two weeks alone, at least 10 police officials have been murdered — including the chief of Mexico’s federal police, Edgar Millan.

Millan was gunned down outside his home Thursday morning. On Friday, the killings continued with the the shooting death of Esteban Robles Espinosa, commander of Mexico City’s police detectives. His body was riddled with eight bullets.

President Felipe Calderon began taking on the cartels last year, deploying the nation’s military to bolster police activities. So far, estimates say more than 3,000 Mexicans have been killed, with almost 1,000 deaths this year alone in a brutal struggle by the civilian government to reassert authority.

The Bush administration has psuhed Congress for the Merida Initiative — a $500 million emergency aid package to help Mexico’s beleuguered effort to fight the cartels.

But the aid bill is getting resistance from Congressional Democrats who hav complained about the lack of focus on social improvements in Mexico. Last week two unions, the AFL-CIO and the United Steelworkers, came out against the aid bill, citing Mexico’s human rights abused.

Palestinians flee Civil War and go to Israel

As the AP reports (by way of Newsbusters):

Palestinians run as they try to cross to the Israel side at the Erez Crossing, in the northern Gaza Strip, Saturday, June 16, 2007. Dozens of Palestinians converged on the Erez crossing with Israel on Saturday, trying to leave the Gaza Strip following Hamas’ takeover.

Israel has long been a place of political asylum for Muslims in the region.
Homosexuals flee to Israel, because unlike their home countries, they will not be executed for their sexual preference.

Not Iraq, but the conflict that is very clearly a civil war that the MSM won’t touch with a ten foot hair piece, the one between Palestinian factions Hamas and Fatah.
