Hezbollah and Mexican Drug Smugglers
Edited on Tue Jul-25-06 09:34 PM by TomInTib
Let's be honest, here.

Mexican drug smugglers inflict far greater damage on the United States than does Hezbollah on Israel.

What if we adopted the Israeli response to Hezbollah and applied it to the War on Drugs?

So maybe we should transform a strip 20 miles deep south of the border(s) into a parking lot and then bomb the snot out of every Mexican city, town, and village that we suspect has ever produced a smuggler or mule.

That would show the bastards that we are serious about the War on Drugs.

And that 20-mile strip would make those illegals real easy to spot and then we could bring 'em to Justice on the cheap with armed drones.

I wonder how that would play on the International Stage?


Just in case this offends any of the sensitive here, I meant this as tongue-in-cheek.

1. Well yes, but follow the money, who most benefits from the drug trade
...in the U.S.? Follow the money and you will have your answer of why the U.S. government continues to allow the drug trade to go on.

This is a little dated, but I think you'll get the idea:

3. Thank you, that is one source but the CIA is a channel
...who are the big money recipients? Which nouveau crime families not benefit most from the narco-traffic trade? Bush family? Negroponte family? Cheney family? The profits end up somewhere. Where?

4. Yeah, let's steal a strip of their country
and make it our own to protect us from them. If they keep it up, we'll steal their entire nation to protect ourselves. Bring it on.

5. Essentially for the same reason that we're not stopping Israel...
they have no real interest in stopping the drug trade either.
