Trump's talk of war on Mexico cartels

After nine members of a Mormon family with US/Mexican citizenship were slaughtered by gunmen, Donald Trump reacted by urging his Mexican counterpart to let him sort out the drug cartels.

“If Mexico needs or requests help cleaning out these monsters, the United States stands ready, willing & able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively,” the US president tweeted on Tuesday, after news broke of the massacre – the latest in a series of extremely violent events across the country.

“This is the time to wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth.”

It was echoed in a Wall Street Journal editorial, and in a New York Times opinion piece that called for an “Iraq-style ‘surge’ to save Mexico”.

2. Yeah, fuck that.

He wants to kill lots of Mexicans, that's what he's after. A killing gig right on the border. The people in cages isn't getting it for him anymore.

6. And for the gun violence in the United States he offers ...

Well, I was going to say "thoughts and prayers" but he doesn't seem capable of even those things.

7. How come he isn't proposing a war on gun violence in AMERICA? Yeah...

In any case, we didn't win Iraq. We didn't win Afghan. ISIS may resurge--so that's still up for question.

But SURE, we'll go in there and just win the heck out of the ongoing drug war, even though we have tried and failed many times.

8. "we didn't win Iraq. We didn't win Afghan"

I don't think we've won a war since WW II,
74 years ago.
