"Atleast No One was Hurt"

The American Consulate in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico was attacked by "unknown" people this weekend when they tossed an explosive device over the protective wall surrounding the building.

The attack happened Friday night and consulate officials now indicate that it will remain closed indefinitely.

It's a small building surrounded by a metal fence mounted in cement. But that flag flying over it is our flag and it indicates that at least in that small space, it is the United States. Maybe the "small" explosive device was thrown over the fence as a prank. Maybe the incident was a response to the State Department announcement last week that "investor visas" (Mexican citizens wishing to buy businesses or real estate in the United States) had been shortened from the previous 3 to 5 years to one year. Or just maybe, it was a "small warning."
