The Craziness Inches Closer II

Rebel leader decries planned wall, criticizes Bush, Fox

JUAREZ -- Masked Zapatista rebel leader Subcomandante Marcos reached across the border -- if only with words (for now! ed.)-- Wednesday, calling Americans "nuestra sangre (our blood)" and criticizing President Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox and the border fence bill.

"We have seen that this wall that the government of Bush is building with the complicity of the Fox government is intended to kill our people," he said. "There was the wall formed by the desert, the wall of the river and now this wall. Our comrades who go to work, not to do any harm, but who cross the border to work in the United States are being treated like terrorists." *snip*

Marcos, who led an armed indigenous revolt against Mexico in the state of Chiapas in the 1990s, spent Tuesday and Wednesday in meetings with Juárez and El Paso activists as part of his so-called Other Campaign tour of Mexico.
So to recap, the leader of an armed Mexican terrorist group is accusing the US of "intending to kill Mexicans" and treating Mexicans like terrorists. He delivers this harangue from an international bridge into the US with several hundred or several thousand supporters, half of which came from the US side?

Am I understanding this correctly thus far?

The craziness is inching closer, violent Mexican revolutionaries are standing on bridges between our nations and threatening us, what more precisely do we need before we act?
