what do they have marines for? Not like they're a very aggressive country.

There are a number of islands in the Gulf of Mexico, most noteably Cuba. Also, the southern portion of Central America forms a geographical bottleneck and contains difficult terrain therefore it is best to have a marine option available.

Too much american influence there. Think about it, they're preparing for a threat that is not very realistic, sounds like GW went and had a lecture there. Cuba is too weak, and all the other countries are too small.

I sense the military industrial complex had something to do with this.

Nice Photos G.A.F.E.

Since Mexico is bordered by the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. It makes sense to have a Amphibous Capable Response Force.


Military Industrial Complex........Okay Jim Garrison.

If I remember events from the last 10 years, the Mexican military was used to put down Indian Rebellions and up risings.

I just googled it and got the rebel uprising of 94 where 200 rebels were killed. With that in mind, the Mexican military may be more geared to internal security.

G.A.F.E.S.
 
The MX marines nowadays have some deficiencys. The good thing is that the Navy secreteriat is improving the capabilities of the marines. Is planned to buy Mi-24 attack helos for close support. Replace the BTR-60PB for APC BTR-70. Buy Heavy 155 guns. Improve individual equipment, i hope they replace the m16a2 by the G36. More improvement are expected for the next years.

So what are your jokes Funny Man? I'm bettin theres a whole lot you don't know about the Military of Mexico. You might be wise to read and learn from G.A.F.E.S. heck you might learn what his screen name means.

Otherwise I'd suggest you stay away from ethnic jokes about other cultures lest ye offend someone. Sabes High Speed.
