Something to consider about the war on the US/Mexican border.

Make no mistake, there is an undeclared war between the American citizenry and the drug cartels in Mexico.  This battle against Mexican-bourne tyranny has never been just the fight of those who live in border states.  Here is a quick list of defenders at the Alamo which I scaled down to illustrate my point.
