Um no...the narco traffickers are the exiled Medellin Cartel operating on the borders. Mexico City is safe because the narcos are smart enough to stay out of there.
A bunch of yahoos in the border states on the Mexican side are on the payroll of the Medellin, they are the ones that populate La Raza and the like. Then there are the ones on the US side.
Mexico is a country of contrasts. Need to unite conservatives there with conservatives here and rid the border regions on both sides of the narcos.
Some advocate drug legalization, I don’t. Narco deprived of their illicit drug trade will resort to extortion, prostitution, controlling provinces by controlling politicians and judges. They are like the Al Capones of today.
A war with Mexico will only make matters worse.
Since nothing we are doing now seems to be working, and never has, maybe the best thing to do is to pull all support for Mexico back, let the cartel’s and the Mexican government work it out. At that point, either the government wins or the cartels wins. If the cartels win, then we can wipe them out. Right now, we are just beating our heads against the wall.
To try and unite conservatives here and there would take years. I don’t believe we have years to wait. If something isn’t done and done now.........all hell is going to break loose in the border states and then move to the other states.
