Enemy Or 'Just' Incompetent?

You be the judge:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Armed gangs dressed in military uniforms often illegally cross the U.S.-Mexico border, providing cover for the trafficking of drugs and illegal aliens into the United States, a Senate panel heard on Wednesday.

U.S. government officials and sheriffs from border areas told lawmakers these intruders were becoming more sophisticated and ruthless, often clashed with U.S. Border Patrol agents and committed crimes in the United States.

"We are indeed aware of criminal organizations that wear military-style uniforms, use military-style equipment and weapons and employ military-style vehicles and tactics while conducting illegal activity in border areas," Border Patrol chief David Aguilar told a joint hearing of the Senate subcommittees on immigration and terrorism.

However, Aguilar said there was no proof that Mexican army personnel were involved or that the Mexican military had intentionally violated U.S. sovereignty.
No. Of course not. After all, that would require an armed response by the US, and we certainly wouldn't want to piss off any illegal immigrants.

So, given that there are Mexicans invading our country who look and act exactly like trained military, I'll ask again: Is our neighbor to the south an enemy, or 'just' incompetent?
