"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Has it come to this? Is Mexico calling the Shots?

World turned upside down! I expect Kofi Annan will be stepping up and defending our sovereignty......

Has it come to this? Is Mexico really in charge? You’d think so! From Yahoo News:

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico - Mexico said Tuesday that it would file lawsuits in U.S. courts if National Guard troops on the border become directly involved in detaining migrants.

Mexican border officials also said they worried that sending troops to heavily trafficked regions would push illegal migrants into more perilous areas of the U.S.-Mexican border to avoid detection.

President Bush announced Monday that he would send 6,000 National Guard troops to the 2,000-mile border, but they would provide intelligence and surveillance support to Border Patrol agents, not catch and detain illegal immigrants.

"If there is a real wave of rights abuses, if we see the National Guard starting to directly participate in detaining people ... we would immediately start filing lawsuits through our consulates," Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez told a Mexico City radio station. He did not offer further details.

You damn liberals. Is this what you want? If anyone in this country sides with Mexico on this, I not only question your patriotism, I think you need to be shipped down there and never allowed to return.

That’s right, I said I question your patriotism. I question your intelligence and your ability to form a coherent thought. I have two words for you and the first one starts with an F.

As for President Bush, it’s time you grew a set of huevos and told that bastard Fox where to go. If you had any cajones, you’d tell Fox where he can stick his lawsuits.

Mexico has absolutely NO RIGHT WHATSOEVER to tell us how to run our border. If they don’t like it, they can kiss our collective rear ends. If they don’t want their people dying in the desert, then stop them.

Maybe we ought to sue in Mexican courts because they allow their people into the deserts in the first place. But you know where that would go.

Mr. Bush, you need to show some leadership, NOW!!!!!!!
