I don't know where your AOR is, but


I recently did some travel in southern Arizona, and over to Las Cruces, NM and back as far as Yuma. I went through many of the BP checkpoints, with the myriad of cameras of all kinds, and saw the lines of trucks lined up to go to Tucson and north.

I have been interested lately in the Southwest Pueblo Indian culture, the Anasazi and the Hopi, among others. I did travel to Nogales, and into Mexico back in the 1980's, but very briefly. I am quite aware of the immense distances between roads in much of that region, all the way to the California border and beyond. When I posted a rant above, I was thinking along the lines of just how much technology we have invented in the last decade, and how much more sense it would make to monitor those areas with technology, that has to be sophisticated enough to be valuable and will detect what we are LOOKING for, not burros, coyotes, cattle or whatever.

I do recognize the sort of task you are talking about, the teams sitting on a near empty highway in that country in the summertime is no joke. I have my own time in the Mohave, as well as other desert trips, I am fond of the desert in fact.

Frankly, I am simply angry, angry at the fact that my trips to Mexico in the past have been great, meeting wonderful people, and this situation was created by the people who care the least about it right now, The cartels aren't funded by poor mexican farmer; it is american money that gave them the guns they use to run things, and we don't take collective responsibility for the fact that AMERICA created that situation, and we have a real problem right now, but it is the Mexicans, and the central Americans, who are paying the price for often wealthy Americans to get high on dope.
