About a year ago the (original) Pink Flamingo featured a series of articles about the movement of drugs, arms, and illegals across the border in and around Cochise County.  I think it is time for a retrospect.  I’m also transferring the original articles from the first blog over to this one.

The Pink Flamingo has a “source” deep within the intelligence community here in Cochise County.  Over a year ago this source told me that the real problem was the movement of drugs from Mexico into the US and the movement of guns from the US into Mexico.  This person, who is a strong-immigration reform conservative, wondered how long it would be before the MSM figures out that the real problem is the movement of drugs and guns.

Basically, if you have been a Pink Flamingo reader for a year or so, you know The Pink Flamingo broke the drugs/guns connection and story at least a year ago.

The following articles provide a historical perspective on just what is going on, and why it is happening.

Article #1 – The State of Affairs in Cochise County – March 8, 2008

Article #2 – Cochise County, Immigration & Crime – April 26, 2008

Article #3 – You’ll Find Your Tombstone – April 26, 2008

Article #4 – Back to Cochise County – April 26, 2008

Article #5 – The Road to Guadeloupe Canyon – April 26, 2008

Article #6 – The Great Immigration Debate – April 19, 2008

    Well, things are really heating up down there. And now this… a bit anecdotal, but nothing beats news from the ground.

    Guns, money, and drugs have been crossing the border in both directions for more than 40 years, that I know of. Is it now, suddenly, “The Real Problem”? No.

    Your “source” may not be all that knowledgeable about the situation.

    The cartels usually use illegal crossers to carry their contraband.

    BTW, the Sierra Vista Herald just ran an interesting article pointing out that an increasing number of illegal crossers have criminal records:

    The age-old pesky U.S.-Mexico border problem has taxed the resources of both countries, led to long lists of injustices, and appears to be heading only for worse troubles in the future. Guess what? The border problem can never be solved. Why? Because the border IS the problem! It’s time for a paradigm change.

    Never fear, a satisfying, comprehensive solution is within reach: the Megamerge Dissolution Solution. Simply dissolve the border along with the failed Mexican government, and megamerge the two countries under U.S. law, with mass free 2-way migration eventually equalizing the development and opportunities permanently, with justice and without racism.

    For details, Google “Megamerge Dissolution Solution”, or click
