Yet to Arrive:
- Up to eight UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters for the air force and federal police.
- Up to four Casa 235 Persuader surveillance airplanes for the navy.
- Up to eight Bell 412 helicopters for the Mexican air force.
The companies that produce these fine pieces of equipment are saying that it will take 12-18 months to manufacture these goods. It is hard to believe that this equipment is only manufactured when there is an order, the U.S. military could certainly part with a few of their own for such an important cause. Nevertheless, until the support arrives in Mexico the cartels will continue to hold on to control. We have to ask ourselves, how long do we want this war to continue?
