Bono says Stop the Madness to U.S. at sold out concert article with Video

 

Bono has something to say about Mexico's drug war too.

 

U2 packed Mexico City's Aztec Stadium for three shows ending Sunday, and didn't shy away from addressing the country's brutal drug violence, which has killed more than 34,000 people since President Felipe Calderon announced a new offensive against traffickers in 2006. On closing night, the band's lead singer, Bono, steered pointed remarks toward the United States, the source of many of the powerful weapons employed by the cartel hit men, in what he called a "message of love along the border."

Unfortunately it is done, not In the Name of Love.

 

It is a game of greed in which innocents continually

loose their lives.

 

Thank you Sola,

great find.

 

Hasn't the USA provided most munitions of War to

the Countries in which we go to battle?

Sick game.

Yes, but there is a LOT of money involved and, of course, JOBS, JOBS, JOBS! Getting the country back to work is our nations highest priority right now. ;)

Maybe God will help us ? Yes I've heard that one too. That's what Obama promised before Congress ended 2010.

 

Was supposed to be the First thing on the agenda for 2011, right ?

 

They dont seem to be in much of a hurry do they ? Just curious, Are you looking for / in need of a job / work ?

I'm not sure if what you are saying has anything to do with the good ol' USA selling automatic weapons to the cartels, whom which we are suppose to be opposing? We supply weapons all around the world in order to continue waring.

 

What has this to do with jobs? :startle:

this has everything to do with jobs, because if there is no war then the military has to cut its budget and lay off higher ups instead of just soldiers

Sorry URK this has NOTHING to do with jobs. It has to do with accountability.

 

ATF has been proved complicit in " Walking Guns " across the border. This is one of the Cartels acceptable methods of payment.

 

Problem was they are now taking out our agents with our weapons.

 

ATF just happens to be Dept of Treasury ! The same Dept as the Federal Reserve.

 

Pretty cozy arrangement, heh ? And the ATF is refusing to talk....

I think your about 50 years past the point were War was a profit generator, War is now a budget buster!!!! It's been years since any war produced viable jobs in this country and I'm sure that is not gonna change anytime soon. The military has been reducing it's size and manpower for years, the only thing up in the military is the budget.

I'm a 2A enthusiast and have been following the guns in Mexico story since it stared... it's not US gun shops not doing what the law requires, it's the ATF "letting them walk" ... look into Operation Fast and Furious and how it came to light. Grassroot gun bloggers and journalists, all in favor of protecting our liberties and enforcing laws currently on the books (rather than making new ones up). Automatic weapons are nearly impossible to buy in the U.S. without MONTHS of paperwork, waiting, and a cost of $5-25k per chunk of steel. Mostly old guys with lots of money, or old guys who got the guns grandfathered in from before the ban. They're definitely not the ones selling guns to Mexico.

 

The automatic weapon problem stems from the U.S. supplying the Mexican army with arms, then the soldiers just up and leaving with their training and gear to work for cartels. Or robbing armories, which a group of men did a few months back. The 4 security guards were unhurt, just weapons stolen. Sounds like an inside job, hey? Talk your coworkers into letting you tie them up is the perfect cover, and a lucrative private security job for a cartel for complying with the robbery.

 

Stop the U.S. funding the world's armies, secure OUR side of the border, and promote "Grown in U.S.A." pot. That'll stop the cartel where it hurts the most, their bank accounts.
