Mexican cartels firing machine guns across the Rio Grande at National Guard troops
By: Thomas Lifson
I believe that there’s a word for a situation in which munitions are fired across an international border aimed at troops defending that border. It is a “war.” Fox News’ Bill Melugin – the preeminent journalist on the story of our southern border – captured video of tracer rounds at night coming across the Rio Grande, and the taunts that accompanied them.
Fred T. of The Right Scoop summarizes:
“Armed cartel members with AK-47s have stood on the opposite side of the Rio Grande” from National Guard troops and “taunted” them, Melugin reports. They have “racked the slides on their guns and have yelled to them in Spanish ‘oh we should just shoot you soldiers.’”
“Incredibly rare to see direct gunfire from a machine gun going into the U.S. like that,” says Melugin.
This video is only one minute long and worth watching:
