Trump Seeks Battle Plan To Wipe Out Mexican Drug Cartels with Military Force If Re-Elected

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Trump asks advisers for ‘Battle Plans’ to ‘attack Mexico if reelected, is a recent Rolling Stone headline, proving that the left is not at all happy about the idea of ‘invading Mecico’s sovereign spaces’ to protect Americans from drug crimes and assaults- and the headline could  ALSO be a lame attempt at a political smear job that the once cool media group has resorted to- so they can join the “get Trump” losers.

But this story has some brilliant points because it is the perfect evidence of the difference between America First Donald J. Trump, a candidate for POTUS in 2024, and everyone who is against him.

“Trump and his MAGAfied Republican Party are pushing plans for military action against drug cartels in Mexico — with or without the Mexican government’s consent,” Rolling Stone whined out about the idea that a President of the United States would protect the American people from drug crimes by protecting our border so drug criminals don’t enter illegally.

“MAGAfied” is pretty funny, though.  The left is horribly upset by the idea of a strong America.

And Rolling Stone is right about one thing; it is only the MAGA Populist Trump supporters and Trump himself who see the problem with allowing uncontrolled gang cartels to dictate to us how we will live in the US.

No other politician wants to talk so brazenly and offend criminals.

Rolling Stone went on trying to discredit Trump’s America First defenders and Trump himself by citing two unnamed sources who pointed them to a website:

“‘Attacking Mexico,’ or whatever you’d like to call it, is something that President Trump has said he wants ‘battle plans’ drawn for,” says one of the sources. “He’s complained about missed opportunities of his first term, and there are a lot of people around him who want fewer missed opportunities in a second Trump presidency.”

The policy paper — titled “It’s Time to Wage War on Transnational Drug Cartels” — outlines possible justifications and procedures for the next Republican commander-in-chief to “formally” declare “war against the cartels,” in response to “the mounting bodies of dead Americans from fentanyl poisonings.”

Rolling Stone repeatedly spoke about how Mexico is “sovereign.” However, the authors never mentioned once that the US is sovereign, and it is OK for a POTUS to recognize that fact.

They go on in a passive-aggressive way to poke at Trump:

“In a nod to Mexico’s status as a sovereign nation, the paper calls on the U.S. to “conduct specific military operations to destroy the cartels and enlist the Mexican government in joint operations to target cartel-networked infrastructure, including affiliated factions and enablers with direct action.”

However, that “enlistment” of the Mexican government comes with a massive caveat: “It is vital that Mexico not be led to believe that they have veto power to prevent the US from taking the actions necessary to secure its borders and people,” the paper reads.

“It’s unclear if Trump would be willing to go as far as the CRA paper advocates, but he has been especially keen on sending Special Forces to Mexico and has been discussing the idea for months.

The Rolling Stone, who was cool when Hunter S. Thompson was with them, has gone to the Marxist side, which is unfortunate to see.

The very uncool outlet was right about a second thing, the  paper written by Ken Cutchenilli, who highlighted historical facts to help stop the flow of deadly criminals:

The southern border of the United States remains mired in chaos, disaster, and death. Contrary to claims by the Biden administration–in particular Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas–the border is not secure. Indeed, the day-to-day reality and the data make clear that America’s southern border is the furthest thing from secure and is enduring record levels of apprehensions, human trafficking, and drug seizures.

The consequences of the administration’s willful negligence in performing their constitutional duties under Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution can be measured in the mounting bodies of dead Americans from fentanyl poisonings, the fragmented communities throughout the nation, and the growing power of the transnational cartels benefitting from our failures. These cartels have grown in power and influence, and, with operational control of the U.S. southern border, they pose an ongoing national security threat that policymakers must address.

Background: Who Are the Cartels?

For over 60 years, vast swaths of northern Mexico have been under some form of influence from numerous transnational criminal organizations (TCOs) that profit from human suffering. These TCOs, better known as the cartels, have created a multi-billion dollar business moving people and drugs into the United States through sophisticated networks of informants, mules (drug runners), and coyotes (facilitators). The cartels can largely exert such autonomy due to longstanding historical factors.

Throughout history, the Mexican government has never fully controlled its territory, particularly in the northern border region. In the mid-19th Century, various internal and external conflicts–including the Mexican-American War–significantly altered Mexico’s geographic boundaries. The Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo, signed in 1848 between Mexico and the United States, ceded roughly 55 percent of Mexico’s total territory away into what is now New Mexico, California, Utah, Nevada, and a significant portion of both Arizona and Colorado. The treaty also solidified the Rio Grande River as the official border between Texas and Mexico.

Periods of weak central governance, sustained corruption, and internal strife contributed to power vacuums for transnational criminal organizations to thrive. In areas along the US-Mexico border, the cartels have seized the opportunity to grow their power base and broaden their networks–which have now spread throughout the country.

The cartels are brutally violent, inflict terror on both the people and government of Mexico, and operate with relative impunity along the US-Mexico border. While there have been attempts in the past to crack down on cartel militancy, the government of Mexico has been unable or unwilling to uproot these narco-terrorist networks that permeate their northern and central territories and influence both local and federal governments. It is a disturbing reality that significant elements of the Mexican government are under the sway of or on the payroll of the cartels.

The atrocities of the various cartels–and their criminal gang affiliates–are too numerous and heinous to fully document. However, the ongoing war has been raging for decades. During the tenure of former President Felipe Calderón, Mexican military forces attempted to impose order and break apart cartel operations throughout Michoacán and other regions.

And the Rolling Stone even admits that they don’t know if Trump has any connection to the ideas- but they did show they are obsessed with ‘getting Trump”, admitting:

The institute’s brief policy pitch is also among the documents recently pushed to Trump, though it is unclear if he’s read it, one of the sources familiar with the situation tells Rolling Stone.
