So obviously Mexican Drug Cartells are a serious threat to both Mexico and the US. So simply give Mexico 60 days to take on the problem before the US starts sending in Drones and Special Ops. Is there anybody who thinks this idea is unfair to anybody?

2 months? Yes, that's more than enough time. I'm pretty sure the USA would be able to do the same, without killing a bunch of innocent people, if they were in their place. They're going to catch all the bad guys, and if anyone dies, obviously they're all bad people. It's not like civilians live in Mexico. And it's not like the Cartel has hands in everything, and probably has some politicians in their pockets. Rushing into matters like this is obviously the smart thing to do. It's not like you're dealing with a sensitive situation and dangerous people. Nope, not at all.

Seriously? 60 days to fix a decades long issue like the cartels? That's like some country telling the United States that they have 60 days to fix the opioid epidemic, or they'll send troops to shut down the pharmacies. Think we could do it?

Keyword: unrestrained. For such an act to be done in such short time, there would be serious human rights issues and laws being broken.

My thought, as well.

Why should the law-abiding taxpayers pay to keep bringing people back "from the brink of death", when those same people are responsible for much of the violent crime in the country?

Or maybe if Americans didn't buy and use so many illegal drugs, the cartels would cease to exist.

Maybe if they were legal, there wouldn't be a need for cartels in the first place.

Yup. Saw that. Funny when the Enemy of your enemy..“Liberal Progressive Lobyists and Mexican cartels with neck tattoos describing how many people they have murdered can get along just fine against the majority of Midwest Traditional Americans. Whatever. History shall tell the tale.

Or we could change policy that makes their service profitable in the first place? They'll be forced to adapt.

Eventually we need to accept that our drug policies have failed to stop the sale and use of drugs. Addiction is a disease, not a crime.

Bombing cartels, who aren't a govt. btw, would be as reasonable as bombing gun companies.

Prohibition fails. The end.

That is dum. D-U-M. Dum. That is spherically dum. I mean it's dum any way you look at it. The Mexican drug cartels exist because American laws force prices up enough to support organized crime. If the feds would butt out and stick to powers granted by the constitution, the Mexican drug cartels would wither.

There is no "become", that condition existed since the first time somebody said "There oughta be a law!" Which is to say forever.
