Someone is sending a message to the world, or at least to the scumbags who have developed the habit of breaking the law with impunity.
Congressman Mike Waltz and Dan Crenshaw, both Republicans, have introduced a resolution calling to “authorize the use of United States Armed Forces against those responsible for trafficking fentanyl or a fentanyl-related substance into the United States or carrying out other related activities that cause regional destabilization in the Western Hemisphere.”
In military terms it says ‘kick a**, take names, and leave bodies’, which the military is very good at. And there are some units that let the other side set the rules, although officially they’ll deny it.
I realize there is no way this thing will go any further but from what I read its gathering support. One can only hope.
This action is what is needed to bring under control something that’s killing millions of Americans, the majority of them our children. Note I’m not saying stop it because that is next to impossible, but the numbers can be brought way down and we can almost end the drug problem in America. Note I used the word ‘almost” because ending the drug problem in this country is next to impossible unless we change from a democracy to a dictatorship. Am I advocating the invasion of Mexico? No way. It would require an invitation from the Mexican government but given the level of corruption in that government it may require some way to allow U.S. forces to operate basically independent of the Mexican government.
A side benefit could be a drop in the level of illegals crossing into our country. I don’t know how many but given the current numbers anything would be a help.
Given who and what this would involve, it could cause some potentially ugly, very ugly, danger to U.S. military personnel’s families, given who we are talking about here. We know they have no qualms about going after families of anyone who opposes them. That’s why if this were to happen, we play by their rules like in the Godfather…you bring a club, we bring a knife…if you go after my family, and yours will get the same.
I know what they’re saying and I hear the liberal little whiners screaming “that would make us as bad as them!!!” And your point is? As I said, you bring a club, I’m bringing a knife. You back down, so will I, but if you want to fight dirty, I’ve been in the mud more then you know and generally don’t regret it. And it would happen only if they start it.
Is that extreme? Yes, but look at the other option, that being the worsening of the current status quo.
