Mexican Military Units Fire On Border Patrol To Help Drug Traffickers

Combat Operations in the Border Zone

American Thinker

By T.J. Woodard

( TJ Woodard is a retired Army officer who lives less than ten miles from the Mexican border. He carries a pistol even in his own house in order to be prepared to defend his family whenever necessary.)

Elites on the coasts don't want to recognize what can be described only as combat operations conducted north of the U.S. - Mexican border.

On April 30, a Pinal County Sheriff deputy was wounded by drug traffickers in a shootout about fifty miles south of Phoenix. Deputy Louie Puroll confronted five illegals who attacked him in an ambush. Puroll fought a twenty-minute gun battle with men armed with AK-47 assault rifles before being hit from behind. He was able to call for assistance on his cell phone. But until help arrived, Puroll fought the traffickers off with his pistol and his AR-15, the law enforcement version of the M-16 rifle issued to the U.S. military.

When that assistance arrived, along with a sheriff department helicopter, the chopper also came under fire. Eventually seventeen illegal immigrants were apprehended after a force of more than two hundred lawmen responded to Deputy Puroll's shooting.

In west Texas, Mexican Army vehicles cross the border supporting drug trafficking. One report indicated an Army vehicle, with machine guns mounted on it, two hundred yards inside the U.S. border. Agents from the Fort Hancock Border Patrol Station called for backup after confronting six men in Mexican military uniforms and driving military vehicles north of the Rio Grande. Chief Deputy of Hudspeth County Sheriff's Department Mike Doyal said, "It happens quite often here."

Also in Texas, helicopters from the Mexican Army and Navy have crossed the border. Several civilians and members of law enforcement witnessed these crossings. This cannot be a helicopter that is lost or having navigational problems -- the Rio Grande clearly delineates Mexico from the United States at that location. There is no reasonable explanation coming from the U.S. or Mexican government why these helicopters are in American airspace.

It doesn't take my 23 years of military service to recognize that these are combat patrols. The ambush is one of the most basic tactics trained by every army in the world. Deputy Puroll engaged a number of suspects and was shot from behind. That indicates that the drug traffickers maneuvered on the deputy -- one man provided "cover fire" while another moved in for the shot. A combat patrol with automatic weapons, front and rear security, and moving in proper intervals indicates at least a certain level of military training. Incursions into American airspace by Mexican helicopters and ground vehicles, ground fire against a sheriff department chopper, and armed men protecting drugs on ranches in Arizona are all indications of a force conducting combat operations.


Wild Thing's comment........

Mexican military is helping them. Then add in to that obama will sue AZ for wanting to protect its citizens and obey the law about immigration and what to do with illegals.

I agree with the author of this article, I would have a gun handy too if I lived there or even 200 miles in range of this happening. Put the gun right on my night stand or table in the living room. This is WAR and I don't blame any citizen for wanting to be sharp and at the ready, but dear God what a way to live, to be in fear every day.

This information should be shared as much as possible so people know how bad it is. Every American should be letting Obama know how disgusting it is that he would sue AZ for doing the right thing and how evil he is not to.

......Thank you RAC for sending this to me.

Our nation is under attack and is being invaded and Obama wants to take a member of the Union, Arizona, to court for trying to stop the invaders. Problem is Bush didn't do anything to stop the invasion either.

Reagan signed Ted Kennedy's Immigration Reform Act into law in 1986. Later Reagan claimed it was the biggest mistake he made in office. Since then every president has been very remiss and lethargic on border control. Now the border has evolved into a free fire zone, a no-man's land. I do not expect it to get any better under obama.

And, NO!! President Bush! They are not all coming here looking for jobs Americans won't do.

Yeah and thats the military we have been supporting with sophisticated equipment. The ones bought off by the Drug Cartels. Their Military is running interferrene for the Drug and Human cargo smugglers and obama sits on his hands while the people along the border have to put up with this invasion. Now sueing Arizona, That has got to be a clear violation of the Constitution, not supporting Federal Laws.

Isn't sueing Arizona the same as sueing the Federal Government? (Law is the same) Place sniper teams 200meters in and 500 meters apart, take out any armed illegal the see.
