Mexico: A terrorist nation run by violent drug cartels

The United States military is unparalleled. On Veterans Day, we pause to acknowledge the security our troops provide, not only to America, but with peacekeeping missions worldwide in regions where security is threatened or violence is commonplace.

Our troops are deployed in more than 150 countries around the world, with over 170,000 active-duty personnel serving outside the United States and its territories. The numbers, according to Wikipedia, are based on the most recent United States Department of Defense statistics as of June 30, 2019.

In view of the inconceivable carnage Mexican drug cartels inflicted upon three American citizen mothers and their six children — caravanning in three separate vehicles — grotesquely ambushed, brutally slaughtered and burned, leaving other children seriously injured, it’s time to stop our farcical dealings with Mexico. We have no choice other than to acknowledge the country is run by terrorists and to deploy troops on our own border.

Mexico is a dangerous country as evident by these U.S. Department of State advisories, which are not new. Americans are urged to reconsider travel or bluntly advised not to travel, as violent crime, such as homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery, are widespread. Giving them nearly $300 million a year of American taxpayer dollars has done nothing to alleviate the pervasive crime in the resource-rich country.

There has been a despicable effort to blame the victims and lessen the culpability of the murderers, with Associated Press zoning in on the group’s polygamous past or claiming the slayings were due to “mistaken identities,” the brutal killers thinking they were part of a rival gang, blaming water conflicts within the farming communities where the victims lived and even deriding the dead mothers as part of a “sex cult.”

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) recently stated, “Mexico is leaning dangerously toward becoming a failed state. We have not seen enough action toward addressing the threat that it presents, not only to the Mexican people but to the American people. When the drug cartels become as big, as powerful, as bold and as callous toward human life as these have become — I think this is a time for us to take this very seriously and to figure out the best steps forward.”

Mexican law enforcement and military are no match to the crime-related violence. In 2018, the number of drug-related homicides in Mexico rose to 33,341, a 15 percent increase from the previous year—and a record high. Mexican drug cartels have killed at least145 candidates and politicians and party workers in the lead-up to Mexico’s 2018 presidential elections.

Global Conflict Tracker lists Mexico in the same category as Syria, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Lebanon and Turkey. 

We need a wall, a vigorous military presence and a fervent commitment to securing our border — Democrat opposition be damned.

    This is only common sense. We need to bring home from 150 countries our troops as we are NOT policemen of the world, there being absolutely no constitutional authority for this practice, and place them strategically to protect our borders and citizens.

  2. Hometown Guy says:

    This post articulates my exact thoughts! Very well stated and good substantiating links. We have a a disaster abutting our border and criminals flooding our country. Mexico also facilitated the caravans of hundred of thousands of Central Americans, allowing them normally restricted access through to the US border. We need to flood Mexican towns with leaflets warning them that loaded guns will be aimed at any and all who dare to illegally cross, whether on land or using waterways. Then we need to back that warning up. Mexico reaps the harvest of remittances, US Dollars sent back to relatives. They use us and commit untold crime while reaping our benefits, including healthcare, housing and food (SNAP…formerly “food stamps”), education for their kids and undercutting salaries of American workers, especially in the building trades.

      The U.S. warned Japan in that manner prior to bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki. As awful as those events were, they ultimately saved lives and shortened the war. Let’s not forget, we were victims of a sneak attack on our fleet in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The USS Arizona is still entombed there with all of the young sailors still on board.

    President Trump, upon learning of this brutal, deadly attack on innocents, immediately offered AMLO assistance in the form of our U.S. military. AMLO said thanks, but no thanks. End of discussion.

    Recall that just a few weeks ago, Mexican police arrested El Chapo’ s son, who had taken over Daddy’s reign of terror.
    It can be seen on video that the police were, at the time of arrest, begging sonny to call off his dogs.

    Within Hours of being taken into custody, he was RELEASED by the Mexican government because of threats of assassinations.

    Indeed, in retaliation, there now have been multiple, brutal killings of Mexican police officers, with one police officer being shot 150 times.

    When El Chapo was standing trial in NYC earlier this year, one of his top henchman testified that El Chapo had paid Mexican politicians, including former Mexican presidents (including one who was a frequent visitor of JayNo when she was AZAG) billions of dollars in U.S. currency.

    Now, couple this with the brand new District Attorney in San Francisco (elected on Saturday).
    His name is Chesa Boudin. (not a typo)
    He ran on the platform of hate for police officers and Federal LEOs; he promises to let illegals out of jail without any trial, etc. Both of his parents were members of the Weather Underground, a group responsible for killings police officers and civilians. His father is still in prison, but his mother is—–
    wait for it—–
    a professor at Columbia U.
    Maybe she can vouch for the attendance of the man they call Obama, who allegedly went there.
    Shades of Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn. Also friends of ZerO.

    Stay the hell out of Mexico.
    Stay the hell out of Cancerous CA.
