Just what are the rules of engagment for the coast guard,border patrol etc? I have noticed that many US outfits don't shoot back,so why should the narcos care??

I think the DTO's are looosing too much money by dumping loads now and willing to take the risk of gunfire. They are getting more brazen in all areas of protecting their routes.

No matter what the ROE state, they ALWAYS have the right to self-defense.

Nobody questions the fact that the US Coast Guard is thousands of miles from the coast they are supposed to be guarding??? Is there no jurisdiction laws that apply?? Call in the Marines and take out all these threats in the name of world peace, and leave the Coast Guard close to home.

We all know hat a coast guard is a military force offering safety in the sea. Thanks for sharing some info about US coast guard.

Great share,God thing that you are posting article like these so that we are ware with coastal issue.My father is a coast guard and so every time we hear news,we get afraid and so it really maters whatever news we read.

God save you! You do great job!
