Whack-a-mole....Somebody will spring right up and take his place.
Exactly. There will never be a time "to pop the champagne, dance in the streets and celebrate with joy" over the killing of a top drug lord - because every time a top drug lord has been removed, the practical result has been precisely squat. It's at most a photo-op ... like the smashing of barrels during Prohibition.
I have been saying for a long time, if we can fly drones and kill people that are threats to our country in Pakastan and Yemen.....Why not fly drones and kill narcos that threaten our neighbors goverment causing a landslide of refugees illegally fleeing into our country? Once the narco-civil war has ended we as Americans can help repatriate the 15 million illegal narco-war refugees living amongst us that need to return home to there own culture and people.
