Mexican Drug Lords Now Use Car Bombs

Read, and you will see the AP not even bat an eye that cars bombs are becoing the tool of terror in the drug wars just south of the border ... This should alarm every American. The question is when does this come to America? 22 pounds of explosives, not even a heavy load for drug smugglers and human traffickers to hump across the border.
Mexican drug traffickers' first car-bomb attack against police has revealed a new level of cold-blooded planning that is forcing this border city and security forces to change the way they confront violence.

Police said Friday that La Linea drug gang — the same group blamed for the March killing of a U.S. consulate employee and her husband — lured federal officers and paramedics to the site of a car bomb by dressing a bound, wounded man in a police uniform and calling in a false report of an officer shot.

The gang then exploded a car holding as much as 22 pounds (10 kilograms) of explosives, killing the decoy, a rescue worker and a federal officer. A regional military commander said a cell phone might have been used to detonate the bomb.
