So this is what victory looks like

Link

The United States and Mexico are “winning” an often brutal war against drug cartels that operate across the border separating the two countries, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Tuesday.

“We are not only fighting this fight, but we are winning it,” Napolitano, a former border state governor, said in prepared remarks to the Southwest Border Task Force gathered in the border city of El Paso, Texas. […]

Warning that further violence was likely, she offered support for the government of Mexican President Felipe Calderon despite allegations of military human rights abuses.

“The fighting has resulted in more than 12,000 deaths in Mexico, and there will, no doubt be more,” Napolitano warned.

    Wonderful! In order to win they have to kill all involved and all innocents caught inbetween! Wow! We help the mexican government kill its citizens,while we arrest and jail ours. What a wonderful way to do things. Only the misinformed sheep here will be saved.

    I got a better Idea, ask GOD to destroy everthing and start over. Id rather see that than this slow death we are inflicting on one another.

    Its so sad,the human race is capable of so much better, so much good,but all we can do is limit one another and slowly destroy our selves.

    So this is victory,I hate to see failure…oh wait this is actually failure in procession. Some just refuse to see it.

    The misinformed sheep here will not be saved. They’ll be spending plenty on military- and prison-industrial operations at the very point in time that all too many of them can least afford to do so. Indeed, many will beg to be allowed to do so, in the belief that it will keep them safe. Safe from whom, I wonder?
