What Would a War on the Drug Cartels Look Like?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

What might happen if we did escalate? None of it is good. America is culturally and politically unwilling to do what it takes to win, or to accept the losses that would come with a military campaign against the drug cartels. The sad fact is that our establishment does not really want to take on the cartels. The failed state next door is a distraction from their real priorities: Ukrainian/Russia tiffs and getting sideways with NATO allies over communist Kurds. Nor do they want to gin up public pressure to take the only action that would devastate the cartels: seriously defending our own border. They want the new voters, they want the cheap labor, and they don’t care how many Mexicans and Americans die to keep them both flowing.
