    I typed:

    'Will the American government scream bloody murder if Mexico tries to do that...yup, probably. Will the cartel's murder anyone who even attempts to take away their major source of power...yup, probably.
    Hey, it won't be easy. But something has to be done.'

    So obviously I am aware of all that.

    But it has to be done.

    Surround the government buildings AND protect the politician's families with the military - while the politician's pass the legalization. And don't make a big discussion about it...do it all behind closed doors, make sure they have the votes and then pass the law. Done.

    What's your solution? Let the cartels run their regions, anyway they want, murdering anyone they want, forever?

    Doesn't work like that. It all goes to the same refineries (depending on type of crude) and the crude is sold generally at OPEC prices no matter it's source.

    If that happened the cartels and normal people would have more targets to shoot at.

    Mexico is not Puerto Rico and if the US invades Mexico, like you suggest, that would be war.

    The cartels will get whoever they want to get.

    The mayor of a smaller town down the road had a large military detail for protection.

    The cartel took out the military officers first, 2 truck in front and 2 trucks in back and killed the mayor.

    I am not sure why you think they wouldn't do the same in this case.

    You don't understand how these cartels work.

    At least the people in Afghanistan care about not killing the innocent, women and children. The cartels don't care anything about that.

    I don't have a solution. If I did I would be working with the government.

    We just try to survive.

    Wasn't suggesting we "invade them."

    Then how would the US military get authorization to operate on Mexican soil?

    The same as we've been doing since World War 1. Mexico's military can handle it, we will just donate resources.

    I understand better then you apparently think how they work.

    You don't get a large military detail for protection.

    You get a full armoured division with full air support and surround the national capital building and cut off all roads around that building while the national vote to legalize drugs throughout Mexico is held. Also get all the families involved and move them to the strongest military base, far away from the drug regions while this vote goes on.

    Like I said; you make sure - in private - that you have the votes you need to pass it. Then you just present the legislation, vote on it, pass it and then it's law. All within a few hours. Don't discuss it with the media beforehand. And say nothing about it to anyone until it is passed.
    Once it is passed, just wait for the cartels to wither on the vine as their drug money evaporates...and their power along with it.

    If you don't have the votes...then don't bother voting on it.

    Fine, then until you do, I am not wasting anymore of my time explaining mine to you.

    Good day.
