Mexico’s Star Wars Initiative

Mexican Special Forces operative wearing a Mexican Ghillie suit in San Miguel

Not to be outdone by President Reagan’s 1983 Star Wars Initiative, Mexican Special Forces operatives disguised some of their troops as Chewbacca, at immediate standby to scare the crap out of any military invaders. Unfortunately, they are not effective for deployment in the drug wars, as those involved are seeing things like this all the time. Here, a Ghillie suited operative was observed marching in the big military parade on Allende’s birthday in San Miguel today. Another was spotted in Central Park last May.
