The first successful car bombing by a drug cartel brings a new dimension of terror to a Mexican border region already shocked by random street battles, bodies dangling from bridges and highway checkpoints mounted by heavily armed criminals.http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100718/ap_on_bi_ge/lt_drug_war_mexico
The attack, seemingly lifted from an al-Qaida playbook, demonstrated once again that the cartels are a step ahead of both an already guarded public and federal police, who have recently taken over command from the military of the battle against traffickers in Ciudad Juarez, a city across the border from El Paso, Texas.
Got that? Directly across the border from El Paso, Texas, there is a car bombing, street battles, bodies dangling from bridges and highway checkpoints mounted by heavily armed criminals, "lifted from an al-Qaida playbook".
But, for some reason, if you favor border security, you're a racist.
