More Mexican Army Border Incursions

Michelle Malkin has a great post about the Mexican Military crossing the border in support of the drug trade.
Mexican soldiers and civilian smugglers had an armed standoff with nearly 30 U.S. law enforcement officials on the Rio Grande in Texas Monday afternoon, according to Texas police and the FBI.
Mexican military Humvees were towing what appeared to be thousands of pounds of marijuana across the border into the United States, said Chief Deputy Mike Doyal, of the Hudspeth County Sheriff's Department.Mexican Army troops had several mounted machine guns on the ground more than 200 yards inside the U.S. border -- near Neely's Crossing, about 50 miles east of El Paso -- when Border Patrol agents called for backup. Hudspeth County deputies and Texas Highway patrol officers arrived shortly afterward, Doyal said.
This is going to be a campaign issue in the next election; it's time to deploy our own military along the border. When Mexican military units cross our border, they need to be met with much more firepower than they're seeing at the moment.
