â€œThe Beast,â€ a cargo train through Mexico which is used at a minimum tolerated by the Mexican government and probably permitted to operate in exchange for cartel kickbacks, is one of the primary means by which illegals make their way acrossÂ MexicoÂ and into the United States.
For now, for a short period of time, these 1,300 future border-crashers are Mexicoâ€™s responsibility, as â€œThe Beastâ€ jumped the tracks Wednesday, with some of its cars flipping over. Rain weakened tracks are believed to have been the cause.
No one was hurt, and once the necessary repairs are made, the spigot of invaders will be switched back on, but for now, fittingly, Mexico can have a small taste of their own medicine. Itâ€™s small but symbolic, and perhaps a lesson to be learned.
Mexico is no friend of America. They are actively engaged in a takeover, an invasion of the United States. They hold one of our Marines in prison without just cause.
Since they are waging a deliberate, though publicly undeclared war on the United States, maybe we should take a cue from this little incident. In spite of Obamaâ€™s best efforts, America is still the worldâ€™s superpower. Train tracks are easy targets to strike and difficult to defend. Best of all, they donâ€™t move. We could easily send a drone or two down to take out a few sections of their track.
It could be a covert operation, but the source would be strongly suspected. Theyâ€™d get the message and, with no loss of life, the flow of invaders would stop immediately. It would also quite likely never be resumed, or at least, not sanctioned as it now is by their government.
That singleÂ responseÂ against the Mexican and Central American aggression could lead to some truly meaningful discussions, rather than the under-the-table game of footsie that we are engaged in now. If they are outraged, so are we. Deal with it.
Enough is enough. We can stop this quite easily. We just need leaders who are willing to do so.
