Six years ago, Arab terrorists killed almost 3000 people in one day. Ever since then, attempts to restrain illegal Mexican immigration have been met with the claim that we should concentrate on terrorism.
In the last six years, of course, Mexicans
and Central Americans
have killed many more than 3000 Americans, but retail, rather than wholesale. A mass murder
here, a bank robbery
there, a woman strangled in a shower stall
...and all the victims of Hispanic drunk drivers.
But still, nothing like a genuine Muslim mass murder, like you get in London, Bali, Madrid, and six years ago in New York. Just your day to day killings.
But Mexicans have their own traditions
of terrorism. Nuevo Laredo
is only slightly less dangerous than Iraq, and recently there`s this massive, coordinated bombing in Mexico.
