War on Terror Update:

I have not normally been including the ongoing war on terror in North America, but I feel that it is necessary, since it is a war fought with terrorism and the tactics used by Islamic terrorists.  There is a war going on south of the US border.  Since 2006, over 30,000 people have been killed in Mexico over narco-related terrorism.  That is more than all coalition casualties combined since 2001.  These cartels have proven to be just as ruthless as any Al-Qaeda sympathizer.  Civilians are constantly bullied, murdered, and buried in mass graves.  Police are bribed, politicians are murdered.  It is a huge mess that needs to be cleaned up and is just as important to the stability of the United States as that of Islamic extremism.

Narco-terrorism is as deadly as Islamic extremism

As predicted and as a matter of national security, the DoD is shrugging its shoulders when questioned about the uniquely designed helicopter found at the crash site in Pakistan.  Pakistan is proving it is not responsible enough to possess nuclear weapons.  If their policies are this whacked up, then it would be only a matter of time before an extremist gets his hands on one.  India would probably be their first target, then Europe and America.  You don’t give children loaded handguns.
