A period of hostile relations between countries, states, or factions that leads to fighting between armed forces especially in land, air, or sea. That's not our definition either. What do you call the actions of Mexico's Military inside our borders and attacking our troops? Yeah, lets just wrap it up and make it peachy keen, and call it the war on drugs.

They can't control their own Military, and they sure can't control their smugglers. We can't control our own borders or laws either, Mexico says so.
Mexican soldiers and civilian smugglers had an armed standoff with nearly 30 U.S. law enforcement officials on the Rio Grande in Texas Monday afternoon, according to Texas police and the FBI.

Hudspeth County deputies and Texas Highway patrol officers arrived shortly afterward, Doyal said.
“It’s been so bred into everyone not to start an international incident with Mexico that it’s been going on for years,” Doyal said. “When you’re up against mounted machine guns, what can you do? Who wants to pull the trigger first? Certainly not us.” *snip*
Doyal said deputies captured one vehicle in the incident, a Cadillac Escalade reportedly stolen from El Paso, and found 1,477 pounds of marijuana inside. The Mexican soldiers set fire to one of the Humvees stuck in the river, he said.
Doyal’s deputies faced a similar incident on Nov. 17,
