The Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador told U.S. President Donald Trump that he didn’t want any help taking on the cartels.
One of those cartels massacred a Mormon family a few days ago, which prompted Trump to declare war on them, but Obrador said no thanks. He would rather deal with them through hugs than with bullets.
It is well known throughout the world that Mexican authorities, politicians, law enforcement are as corrupt as can be and have been on the cartel’s payrolls for decades. If this president were sincere, he would summon his military and federal police to wipe out the cartels, but money talks and we know why this won’t happen, it also makes one wonders why the Democrats are for open borders, maybe they are getting a cut too.
In recent US cartel member trials, it was repeatedly found that Cartel leaders had to pay the Governors of each state to operate freely. They then would kick up a percentage of the payoffs to the top federal level. Most recently, in El Chapós trial. Mexico is a Narco state.
A preview of what will happen here because politicians are, by nature, corrupt. They can’t resist the temptation of personal wealth that they siphon through questionable means.
Mexico’s president stood defiant Wednesday amid mounting criticism of his government’s policy of using “hugs, not bullets” when fighting drug cartels after nine Americans – including six children – were gunned down by sicarios on Monday.
President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador brushed off criticisms against his government’s position and reiterated Wednesday during his daily media briefing that violence was not the answer or appropriate response to the growing deaths at the hands of cartels.
“It was lamentable, painful because children died, but do we want to resolve the problem the same way (as previous administrations)? By declaring war?” he asked. “That, in the case of our country, showed that it does not work. That was a failure. It caused more violence.”
“We are carrying out a different policy because the policy that was applied during 36 years was a resounding failure and it caused a lot of damage, a lot of sadness, a lot of deaths, a lot of losses for Mexicans,” he added. “We will not continue with the same and we will show that our proposal works, despite it not being easy. We are confident that we will achieve good results.” [Fox News]
I can’t see it, hugs over bullets?
The only way to deal with the cartels is to declare martial law and suspend the courts. Wage war against the cartels. Use guerrilla warfare and conventional warfare, and don’t be afraid to conduct mass executions of anyone suspected of being part of those cartels.
Obrador is trying to fix the economic society and rid the corrupt out of power while interior entities are trying to rile up anything they can to stop him in his tracks. Government corruption organized crime is one thing; the Cartels is another, don’t get them confused for working on the same team. Govt corruption waged war on the cartels long ago to own the black market.
Mexico needs both an anti-poverty strategy and an anti-corruption strategy. People do not understand that there is virtually no difference between the cops/politicians and the cartels. Only the names change. It is one organization that works in tandem.
Obrador is living in a dream world, and his citizens are living in a nightmare. “Hugs not bullets” might work for a normal, sane person, but the narco Traficantes is not normal or sane.
We see now if there was any question, who is running Mexico, and it is not the government.
