"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

Mexico angered by decision to increase security at border

Boo-flippin'-hoo-hoo to those angered, which thanks to them, The Uncooperative Blogger feels like Mary Chaffin Carpenter.

Oh, this one chaffs my backside!

From the International Herald Tribune:

Mexicans — from leading politicians to migrants preparing to cross illegally — consider the U.S. plan to fence off much of the border shameful, offensive and ill-conceived.

The measure capped months of debate on immigration. Mexican immigrants in the U.S. and the Mexican government lobbied lawmakers for more ways to cross the border and work legally.

The Mexican government this week sent a diplomatic note to Washington criticizing the plan for 1,125 kilometers (700 miles) of new fencing along the border. Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez called it an "offense" and said Wednesday his office was considering taking the issue to the United Nations.

In Mexico City on Thursday, Fox reached out to the millions of Mexicans living north of the border.

"I have always believed that there is one Mexico, and that no walls can divide it," he said. "There are no barriers or borders or even fences that can keep Mexicans apart."

Do you hear that?
