Thursday night a car bomb exploded in Juarez, Mexico, killing four people. The bomb, which supposedly was planted by one of the Mexican drug cartels, used the same kind of detonation device used by terrorist groups like Hezbollah. The terrorist-style bombing continues a pattern of killing in Mexico that recently included the assassination of a gubernatorial candidate in one of the Mexican states bordering Texas.
Juarez, incidentally, is right across the border from El Paso, Texas and within a stone’s throw of Fort Bliss. The continuing drug war violence in Mexico is just another reason why one of our national priorities should be securing the southern border, to make sure that the violence in Mexico does not spill over into the United States.
