Mexican cartels are rarely mentioned in the mainstream media. They're a regular part of the conservative newscasts in their attempts to address the 2 million to 3 million illegal aliens who have invaded our country in the last year.
Occasionally, an editorial or letter to the editor gets published in our local papers, but I never see any positive response.
Because of the United States, the cartels have become the most powerful organizations in Mexico, assuring its continuing status as a narco state, because of their unbelievable cash flows resulting from the Biden administration's policies like paying a fee to allow people at the border to enter the U.S., human trafficking, sex trade, and, of course, drugs.
Last year, more than 100,000 Americans died from fentanyl, with almost 100% of it arriving in the U.S. through the Southern border, and almost 100% of the fentanyl produced by China.
The cartels are conspiring with a foreign country to kill Americans, yet our government does nothing! A frustrated Border Patrol agent was talking recently about how nothing can be done to improve the situation from his side of the border. We no longer have the 101st Airborne, but we do have the 82nd Airborne.
Use them. Carefully assign drones to cartel targets. Use snipers. When appropriate, launch larger strikes. We helped create this Frankenstein, let's help destroy it.
