The Perry woo-woo alarm has gone off again. This time it was heard at a town hall meeting in New Hampshire.
Trying to regain his tea party creds after the tuition for illegal immigrants flap has been difficult for Governor Perry. He is using this swing through the state shore up his suddenly weakening support and to emphasize how tough he is on border security issues.
The woo-woo alarm went off when Gov. Perry said he may favor sending U.S. troops into Mexico to combat the drug cartels.
Using the failed U.S. military intervention in Columbia’s battles with the cocaine lords as an example of a success in battling drug trafficking, “It may require our military in Mexico working in concert with them to kill these drug cartels and keep them off of our borders,” he said.
Perry has ignored two things, aside from the failure of the Columbian cocaine adventure. Columbia invited the U.S. military in; Mexico has always been opposed to U.S. forces on its territory. They have good reason. Aside from two wars with Mexico, it was pretty standard practice for American citizens in the mid-1800’s to form up a private army and invade Mexico for a bit pillage, plunder, rape and burn.
Maybe Rick should just go off and pot a few coyotes to work off some that built up testosterone.
