Why will this be any different...

...than any other incident of its kind?

BROWNSVILLE — Gunmen presumed to be Mexican drug gangsters opened fire Wednesday on a couple riding personal watercraft on the binational Falcon Lake reservoir, striking the husband in the head and chasing his frantic wife into U.S. waters.
“These guys are getting very aggressive,” he said. “It's a significant incident, but it has international ramifications if the shots continued into our side. This was just a couple of people having a good time.”
International ramifications? You mean like when Arizona rancher Rob Krentz was shot by Mexican drug smugglers on his own fucking property? Yeah, that was an international incident too, but no one ever said word one or did anything of any significance to even try to ensure that nothing like that would ever happen again. So why will this be any different?
