Pirates threaten boats on US-Mexico border lake
The waters of Falcon Lake normally beckon boaters with waterskiing and world-record bass fishing. But this holiday weekend, fishermen on the waters that straddle the U.S.-Mexico border are on the lookout for something more sinister: pirates.
Twice in recent weeks, fishermen have been robbed at gunpoint by marauders that the local sheriff says are "spillover" from fighting between rival Mexican drug gangs.
While the politicos and pundits banter an the president continues to dodge and duck serious examination of the growing problems of unprotected borders, the problem south of our border grows.
Who would have thought a generation ago, that we would today be dealing with millions of illegal criminals spilling across our borders and a complacent government that refuses to even acknowledge that there is a problem.
And now we have drug lords warring along our border and killing people weekly by the dozens, within a stones throw of America. Americans can literally look cross the border and see these drug cartels massing as if they were the Mongul hoards.
And now we have news of drug pirates coming out and attacking Americans in our border waters. And trust me folks, this ain't Pirates of the Caribbean. This is serious and it is only a matter of time before Americans are killed by these thugs.
