When It Comes to the Border, Obama Needs to Kick, Not Kiss!

By John W. Lillpop

In protesting the recent shooting death of a Mexican youth by the U.S. Border Patrol, the Mexican government angrily accused the Americans of using disproportionate force.

According to Mexican officials distraught by the treatment of Mexican illegal aliens,it was an unfair “weapons versus stones” battle.

As it turns out, the whole truth is much uglier. So much so that it should sound an urgent alarm in the brains and souls of all elected officials who have sworn to protect and defend the United States.

As reported at Fox News, in part:

“CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) — Pointing their rifles, Mexican security forces chased away U.S. authorities investigating the shooting of a 15-year-old Mexican by a U.S. Border Patrol agent on the banks of the Rio Grande, the FBI and witnesses told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

“The killing of the Mexican by U.S. authorities — the second in less than two weeks — has exposed the distrust between the two countries that lies just below the surface, and has enraged Mexicans who see the death of the boy on Mexican soil as an act of murder.

“Shortly after the boy was shot, Mexican soldiers arrived at the scene and pointed their guns at the Border Patrol agents across the riverbank while bystanders screamed insults and hurled rocks and firecrackers, FBI spokeswoman Andrea Simmons said. She said the agents were forced to withdraw.

"It pretty quickly got very intense over on the Mexican side," she said, adding that FBI agents showed up later and resumed the investigation, even as Mexican authorities pointed guns at them from across the river.

“The confrontation occurred Monday night over the body of Sergio Adrian Hernandez Huereka, who died of his wounds beside the column of a railroad bridge connecting Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, and El Paso, Texas.”

Foreign soldiers pointing weapons at U.S. law authorities? How can this be?

Where in the hell is our “Kick A**” president? Why is he not rushing to defend Americans threatened with lethal force by foreign soldiers? While on U.S. soil?

Perhaps a presidential rebooting is called for:

It’s KICK! Not Kiss, Mr. President!
