FTA: We know Al Qaeda has camps on the Mexican border

On a scale of 1 to butternut squash, how crazy is this guy?

Butternut squash is useful and delicious.

Finally the Israeli people said this is enough. They built a fence and the rest is a wall to prevent snipers from telling their kids. They finally stopped the domestic violence from people that wanted to destroy them. I am concerned we need to do that as well."

Mexican Americans don't like to build bombs early in the morning
but they have to so they do it real slow.
Mexican Americans love education so they go to night school

I dunno about camps but I have a friend that worked on Rick Perry's little pet project known as Border Star a few years back. Not all of the people detained illegally crossing the border were of Hispanic descent.  However, to attempt to tie this to Boston is pretty farking stupid.
 
2013-04-17 10:38:45 AM  
A bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing.

The thing is that, the guy is mostly right when it comes to the training camps south of the border. He's wrong about the fact that they are in Mexico, I am not aware of such things, at least not when it comes to Al-Qaeda.

Hizbullah, however, as a pretty strong presence in Columbia, Argentina and Venezuela, and certainly send some of their members to train with FARC and vice-versa. They also have extensive links with Cartels, whether South American or in Mexico. They have also started to develop a more important presence in Mexico in the last 3-4 years. They participate in everything from money counterfeiting to drugs to assassinations, both as a source of revenues to further their activities, but also to develop cooperation and working relationships with criminal groups. Some cartels in Mexico have been using car bombs and IEDs that have been taught to them by radical Islamic group, and there is a real fear that they could use these contacts in order to smuggle people in America, and those people could be use to commit terrorist acts. I believe that this was also brought up recently in relation with the plans to assassinate the Saudi ambassador on American soil by using operatives smuggled in America by coyotes.

However, 'Al Qaeda' does not have camps in Mexico (as far as I'm aware), though it is certainly possible that they'd send members to train with Cartels such as Los Zetas, who are a paramilitary force.

Now, when it comes to 'acting Hispanic', I'm not sure what he means. Is he saying that they are trying to train terrorists to blend in with the local hispanic population in order to blend more easily in America? That's possible but I've never heard about that.

Whatever. Like I said, trying to tie that little tidbit to Boston is pretty farking stupid, but to deny that people other than Hispanics are coming across  is just as farking stupid.

We are beyond fear.

Guys not obeying the law is not the same as not having a law in the first place. You have to show a form of ID to authorized sellers.

I would love to have been at the Al Qaeda meeting where they put the training camps on the Mexican border.

"Gentlemen, we need more camps if we are to attack the Great Satan Infidel America and strike them down."
"What do you recommend?"
"We put one where they can watch us with binoculars."
"Brilliant!"

Yes, but only if Texans actually count as people. It's a question best left to philosophers.

Epoch_Zero: Therein lies the rub.


Well there are already laws in the books to deal with these things, we should ask for the states to apply them in the first place before we ask the federal government to just add to the pile.

If something is not broken, no need to ask guys in washington to spend millions of dollars to break it.
 
2013-04-17 11:15:47 AM  
this was basically the plot in Cheech Marin's mid-80s gagbortion "Born In East LA".  He had to teach Chinese people how to act Mexican to cross the border.
