Shootout 40 miles south of the border

Another day, another shootout south of the border.   Like the ones before, many are dead and the crime scene is not far from the U.S. border.
This is the story:   
The lethal, hour-long battle broke out between security forces and suspected members of the Cartel of the Northeast in the town of Villa Union, about 40 miles south of the US border town of Eagle Pass, Texas.
Twenty-five vehicles, four with high calibers guns, numerous long range guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition were also confiscated, according to the statement.
Images from the state government showed a local municipal building and police vehicle riddled with bullet holes.
It was quite a battle, from the results scene captured by phone and photos.  
What does it mean to us and Mexicans?
For us, it means that the violence in Mexico is real and too close to U.S. border towns.  Why is it so close?  The answer is that cartels operate in the north of Mexico because they service their business in the U.S.   In other words, we consume and they cash in!
For Mexicans, the situation is more difficult.  It is no longer crazy to say that sections of Mexico, specially the sleepy towns in the north, are run by cartels.  They have the weapons to intimidate the police and the cash to blackmail the politicians.
So what happens next?  We will see more violence.  Declaring that cartels are terrorist organizations gives President Trump a few more options, but I’m not sure how that changes the situation.
For years, I’ve loved those Mexican towns that take you back to The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.   The towns are still there but they are not sleepy or peaceful anymore.

1945: The United Nations many years later

The US Senate approved US participation in the UN on this day in 1945.   It was founded on October 24, 1945.

My guess is that world leaders had high expectations for the organization.  Unfortunately, the UN has been a total disappointment.

Over the decades, the UN has been a dysfunctional and very corrupt place.

A few years ago, Tom DeWeese pointed out the truth:

"The UN gives validity to zealots and bigots.
It helps to keep tyrannical dictators in power.
It gives a voice to international terrorists.
Delay. Negotiate. Recommend. Study. Reconsider. Do nothing.
This is the game the UN has played in nearly every international crisis.

It's time for the US and other democracies to start fresh. The current UN makes no sense.

The UN is bad.  It is horrible. The UN has turned into a gallery shouting anti-US and anti-Israel rants.

Let's look at the UN Human Rights Commission. According to UN rules, a seat on the commission is open to any country, such as human rights violators Cuba, North Korea or Iran.

Cuba sitting on a human rights commission?   Do you need any more evidence?

Needless to say, the US has a lot of leverage.  Without the US funding, or about 22% of the total budget, the UN offices would be closed for lack of money to pay rent or utilities.

So stop funding the UN!
