    whats the difference Pablo they were found with in Belize commence firing at the patrol, the BDf patrol return fire ‘as a result a Guatemalan “poacher” was shot.the BDf need to be commended for not taking the life of the poachers,if it was on the flip side a BDf soldier would have been kill.Pablo your comment seems a bit sarcastic, non the less well done BDf,your life was at stake and in danger hence reason you protected the location and defended your patrol,your performance was good.i trust that the authorities will incarcerate this offender.and commend the Patrol for its positive action.

    One continuous road along the Guat border with drone patrol, and about a 1000 more AK-47’s should achieve needed diplomacy.
