If we let the cartels fully take over the Mexican government we will eventually either have to declare war on Mexico or watch as the cartels take over the USA.
I would prefer to see the US government declare the Mexican cartels to be terrorist organizations and do to them what we tried to do the the Taliban after 9/11. If we aren’t going to fight the cartels with everything we’ve got there’s no way the Mexican government will be able to.
Like the CIA and the Mena cocaine cartel?
The Drug cartel is alive and well and has a "legal" monopoly here already! Just try to treat yourself against their wishes! You will take their "medical" treatments or they will kick in your door with guns blazing!
