“Al Capone’s great grand children” this isn’t, not in the slightest. The cop-out that this is just like prohibition is like Obama claiming he is still cleaning up Bush’s messes. Neither things are related in the slightest.
The South American Cartel Armies are thousands of times larger and infinitely more ruthless and evil compared to the prohibition era mobsters. Even the mobsters had some rules and scruples and could be reckoned with.
There is no reckoning with these Cartel Armies, no rules and no scruples. They murder everyone (pregnant women, children, cops, military, politicians, etc) at will in the most gruesome ways, many being tortured first.
The Drug War is at our border, and I say “War” because these Cartel Armies are at military style War. It isn’t a “mob war” either. It’s a full on War of them against everyone who isn’t with them. To think that War won’t cross the border.....that’s having blinders on to the world.
We have no control over demand. We do on supply.
We need to work with the FUNCTIONING tools we have, instead of incarcerating citizens. Legalize, overload the supply and cut off their funds!
