    Mexican Drug Cartels

    The Mexican Drug Cartels are a foreign threat who's activities since and including 911 have directly and indirectly killed more Americans than Al-Qaeda and ISIS put together.

    The Mexican Government has made it clear that they cant handle them.

    Can anyone explain why they could not be classified the same as a foreign terrorist organization that would start having to live in fear of a night time visit form SEAL Team 6 or other Military Special Ops Unit, not to be captured or arrested just killed?

    I understand the Posse Comitatus Act, but this is not a domestic criminal organization, it's a foreign threat that has killed more Americans than many forces that we have declared war against.

    We can't stop the Mexican cartel. We can't even stop the gangs in our own country.

    Kill them, arrest them, freeze their assets... What do you think the DEA does across the world?

    It’s a game of whack a mole, there’s too much money in it, take down one cartel, either another takes its place or remnants fracture, create their own and it fuels even more violence as they vie for control.

    Your own citizens relative wealth empowers the cartels, your own citizens buy the product that makes them rich enough to corrupt their entire nations and obtain vast Arsenals of weapons, it’s your governments short sighted and regressive policies that is partially responsible for creating this entire situation...

    That doesn’t abrogate responsibility for the terrible violence these cartels commit and they should be held accountable for them, but unless we address the root cause of the problem, the primal, cave man like attitude of “just kill them” will get you nowhere and the cycle of violence will just continue on and on as long as there’s money to be made.

    Because they terrorize Mexicans not Americans, that's how they get away with it. The Mexican government is paid off by the cartels, that's how they get away with it. They kill each other once in a while in their cartel wars, that's about it.

    Want to get rid of the cartels

    Get rid of the drug users. Make the use of drugs a life sentence. Drug use will drop drastically

    Or make the drugs legal, with no money to be made from the illegal Importation of drugs, the drug cartels will fold
    Ignorance is Bliss

    You seem very happy today

    The fly in that soup is that without the customers there will Always be a provider, close one down and they are replaced in the blink of the eye. It is like many topics/issues blaming the wrong thing, the symptom, and forgetting the cause, it is always doomed to failure.
