US Must Intervene to Stop Mexican Drug Violence

with 7 comments

You don’t have to watch Lou Dobbs for very long to reallize just what a threat the United States has on its Southern border.  Even semi-legitimate organizations like the US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce “is effectively an organization that is interested in the export of American capital and production to Mexico and Mexico’s export of drugs and illegal aliens to the United States. This is crazy stuff.”

We must get control of the Mexico situation.  The Mexican towns on the border with the United States are  getting more and more dangerous as drug fueld violence is escalating.  Illegal immigrants continue to flood into the United States and As Mr. Dobbs has pointed out Mexican immigrants are responsible for the health care crisis, our failing schools, the economic downturn, the failure of the war in Iraq, and leprosy.

I have an idea that will solve the Mexican problem and help our economy at the same time.  Back in 1847, the United States sent General Zachary Taylor into Mexican territory where 11 soldiers were killed by the Mexican cavalry in what became known as the Thornton affair.  As a result, the United States plunged into the Mexican-American War–a war that brough us both Texas and California.  By sending troops down to Mexico we can start a war that gives us a legitimate claim to a large chunk of Mexican territory.  Unlike Islamic extremists, most of Mexico would be thrilled to be conquered.    We could use this area (which I would place just South of Monterey) as a sort of proving ground for Mexicans who want to come into the United States proper.   Believe it or not, it would reduce the size of our border with Mexico too if we want to build a fence.

This is the time for bold thinking.  It is an excellent time for provoking a war–not a depressing war that goes on forever, but a quick and decisive vicyory that can revive our economy.

  1. If we could convince the American People that Mexico has Weapons of Mass Destruction, it would be easy to start a war.

  2. I love the scene in the film The Day After Tomorrow when a bunch of Americans are trying to cross the borders to get into Mexico to escape from the catastrophes caused by global warming and Mexico says Americans can only pass if the country’s foreign debt is forgiven. When I watched that GREAT movie in Brazilian theaters the whole audience cheered during that scene. I wonder why.

  3. All this mayhem is not only knocking at the back door of our country but soon it will be busting that door down! I just have to ask, Where’s our watch dog? Is he guarding the back door? The U.S. has 166,420 troops in Iraq and Afghanistan alone. In a commentary entitled “Too Many Overseas Bases“, Foreign Policy in Focus reports even more troops in the additional 865 Army bases abroad, not counting the bases in Iraq and Afghanistan. Crap, we’re everywhere! Do you think we could be a bit over-extended, militarily speaking? Bring these guys home now! Our country needs protecting from within! How on earth is America going to protect herself when this Mexican Civil War spills, even more, into the United States?- Um… seems like I forgot, Is the porch light even on out back? Is there enough attention to this issue here in this country? When we watch something like this on the television news, do we really listen or has all news become so mundane and depressing that we are not affected anymore? Maybe we don’t really hear what’s being said? Perhaps, in this country we’re sleeping so soundly that we cannot even hear when someone is tinkering with our door knob.

  4. I have to confess, I don’t listen to the news–I kind of half listen, but those Fox women are hot.

  5. Maybe the fact that you only half-listen to the news is the reason why this idea is completely US-centric, racist, capitalist, and all around the worst idea anyone has every had. It does nothing to solve the drug problem that we have in BOTH the US and Mexico. The US demand for drugs is a huge part of what is fueling the trafficking of drugs in Mexico in the first place. If we so “valiantly” conquer Mexico, we will only be taking on their drug problem as well as our own, which our country just can’t handle right now. Your idea doesn’t make sense because you want to acquire more of Mexico, but at the same time build a fence to ‘keep those damn Mexicans out.’

  6. Obviously after we take in more of Mexico, we build the fence on the other side of our new states. Besides, Texas was part of Mexico and that has worked pretty well for us.
