So Mexico wants a powerful civilian militarized force. Sounds like he got his idea from Obama who wants a civilian militarized force as powerful as the military. What would Obama do with this civilian army? Homeland Security has already designated conservatives, christians, ex military Americans as terrorists. Is this civilian army needed to brng these 'terrorists' to heel? The government has bought hundreds of millions of ammo rounds and semi-automatic weapons. They are training young men in fema camps to help with 'disaster relief'. Their hummer like armoured vehicles look like something a drug cartel chief would ride around in. America is in trouble.

As a citizen of the U.S.A. I have no right to approve or disapprove of any steps taken by Mexican authorities to restore order in their nation. But I have every right to fear Obamaland if controlled by a civilian army under a Muslim's leadership. Is there any hope for the U.SA. other than for some of us to secede from this which was once a land of the free and a home of the brave? If Obama gets our guns, it may be too late to save ourselves from his tyranny.
During last year's Mexican presidential campaign, then-candidate and now President Enrique Pena Nieto argued that Mexico needed a new, specially trained and heavily armed police force.

This organization, which Pena dubbed the National Gendarmerie, would have the military organization and equipment to win a high-intensity firefight with cartel gunmen. Its personnel would also be trained to police threatened communities, with the goal of reducing criminal violence.

Pena said these gendarme units would eventually relieve the Mexican Army soldiers and Mexican Navy marines of the complex task of battling the drug cartels. The military could then concentrate on national defense.

It appears...
