Mexico Won’t Allow US Military Operations Against Cartels: Foreign Minister warns drone strikes would violate sovereignty

President Trump’s move to declare Mexican cartels as terrorist groups is potentially going to be complicated, and Mexican President Obrador sought to establish a red-line, that Mexico will not allow the US to conduct cross-border military operations into Mexico looking for the cartels.

Trump hasn’t said he will send troops, saying that didn’t “want to say what I’m going to do” after the designation of the cartels. He refused to rule out the use of drone strikes in a recent interview, however.

Mexico’s foreign ministry was quick to reject that idea, saying that drone strikes would be a “violation of national sovereignty,” and have contacted the US to seek clarification about what they actually intend to do.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump will treat Mexico's sovereignty... in just the same way as he has treated the sovereignty of Syria; the Mexican government is helpless to put a stop to it, unless another nation with heavy "fire-power" intervenes, as Russia did in Syria.

What President Trump should do, is to declare that personal amounts of all drugs become unscheduled, to pull the profit motive out from under the cartels' bottom line; of course, this will happen only when pigs discover they are aerodynamic, because there is so much money to be made from the illicit drug trade, by banks, corporations, and even, perhaps...political candidates.

And I am NOT throwing down the "j'accuse" against President Trump on this issue; I just wish he saw drug addiction more as an illness, rather than something against which to declare war.
