#1 Any comments from Mitt Romney?

#2 ^ Likely only 1. Something along the lines of "President Trump is a fascist dictator who has offered a Quid Pro Quo to Mexico." We'll send aid if you help stop the cartels" Clearly an impeachable offense."

#4 'We declared war, and it didn't work,' Lopez Obrador said at a press conference, referring to the policies of previous administrations.'That is not an option.'

Ok, jefe. But a punitive expedition is definitely an option for us.

Agreed that your narco-state is a lost cause and that yourself are a pathetically weak leader, a de facto hostage to the cartels. But don't expect us to sit by and not seek to punish those who slaughtered an American family--burned them
alive-- just a few hundred miles away from our territory.

As a young man, Trump said of his real estate practices, "I play fair. But if you screw me, I screw back--in spades."

Difference is: Trump is quite likely to wage war. Previous Administrations simply had a photo-op.

Don't burn our citizens to death and expect us not to make you pay a heavy price for it.

#9 I've said for years we need to wage real war on the Cartels. Including if you take cartel money, you eat a Hellfire.

Spray the drug fields with persistent nerve agents.

#11 I can already hear the Human Rights folks beating their breasts at the immense collateral from this one.

"Senor Perfidio was a generous man. His family was struck by an American drone. Very sad."

#14 Very right. If Trump does want to make the bureaucrats do something decisive, I wouldn't put it past them to consider assassination even. The drug business must go on. To many, it's their mainstay.

He's very, very sad but not sad enough to secure the border. Gotta wonder how much cartel money makes its way into his pockets.

#25 There are Mexicans who live in US states who go to Mexico on secret missions against the Cartels for their government, then return to the safety of the US where they raise their families without fear of retaliation. Dual national Contractors that are a shadowy group.

#28  Has Human Rights Watch condemned the cartels for these actual civilians who were slaughtered?

Many moons ago, while driving about the countryside, I heard an interview on the BBC with some spokesdroid from either HRW or Amnesia International. It stuck in my head all these years because in the midst of the usual tongue bath, the interviewer suddenly brought the heat: "You guys are always banging on about the West. There are some really shitty people in this world. How come you never bitch about them?"
(yeah, I'm paraphrasing)
The reply? "Because the really awful people ignore us."
I was stunned, both by the hypocrisy of the remark and by the fact that she told the truth. So much for seizing the high moral ground.

#29 The interesting thing, SteveS, is that by studiously ignoring the acts of the truly bad who "ignore them", they provide cover for those regimes and groups. The worst abusers of human rights are whitewashed, and the countries that really try get slimed by HRW repeating the flimsiest claims they can find.
