Why aren’t we using Predators to kill the drug cartels in Mexico? [Reader Post]

                                       

In March Janet Napolitano assured us that the US-Mexican border was safer than ever. This in spite of Barack Obama and Eric Holder willingly sending 2000 automatic weapons into the hands of the drug cartels south of the border.

Well, it turns out that the border is not so safe. The Mexican state of Chihuahua, which borders Texas and New Mexico, is in anarchy. The US-Mexican border is less safe than Afghanistan.

Organized crime-related deaths in one Mexican border state during the first nine months of 2011 exceed the number of Afghan civilians killed in roughly the same period in all of war-torn Afghanistan.

According to the Mexican government, from January through September 2011 2,276 deaths were recorded in the Mexican state of Chihuahua, which borders Texas and New Mexico.

A Nov. 2011 Congressional Research Service (CRS) report states that over nearly the same period – January through October 2011 – 2,177 civilians were killed in Afghanistan, where a U.S.-led war against the Taliban is underway. It did not provide a breakdown of responsibility for that period, but said that in 2010, 75 percent of civilian deaths were attributed to the Taliban and other “anti-government elements.”

Per capita, a person was at least nine times more likely to be murdered in Chihuahua last year than in Afghanistan. (Chihuahua has 3,406,465 inhabitants, according to Mexico’s 2010 census; the CIA World Factbook reports that in July 2011 the estimated population of Afghanistan was 29,835,392.)
According to the reported numbers, the drug-related murder rate was about 67 for every 100,000 inhabitants in Chihuahua last year, while in Afghanistan the civilian killing rate was an estimated seven for every 100,000 people living there.

There were more drug-related killings in Chihuahua than in any other Mexican state, according to the government figures. Chihuahua, the largest state in Mexico, includes Ciudad Juarez, a border city located across from El Paso, Texas. It is the deadliest city in Mexico and is considered one of the most dangerous places in the world.

According to the government tally, Juarez accounted for 1,206 (about 53 percent) of the 2,276 drug cartel-related murders in Chihuahua during the fist nine months of 2011.

The state capital, the city of Chihuahua, was also among the five deadliest cities in Mexico over that period, with 402 homicides reported.

The organized crime-related deaths in Mexico – officially referred to as homicides due to rivalry between delinquent organizations – include executions, deaths from encounters with authorities, direct aggression attacks, and killings stemming from violence between organized trafficking groups, according to the country’s government.

Its figures show that a total of 12,903 drug-related homicides took place across the country during the first nine months of 2011, taking Mexico’s drug-war death toll to 47,515 since President Felipe Calderon began a militarized crackdown on organized crime in December 2006.

Again comparing the Mexican and Afghanistan figures, the CRS report shows that 11,007 Afghan civilians were killed from 2007 through October 2011. That is about 80 percent fewer deaths than the 47,515 drug-related murders in Mexico over roughly the same period (December 2006 through September 2011).

Bungling by Obama and Holder has gotten two American agents killed so far.

Why aren’t we using drones to kill drug cartel members? The violence in Mexico is literally on our doorstep. It is spilling over into the United States, and it’s not new:

TUCSON — Sgt. David Azuelo stepped gingerly over the specks of blood on the floor, took note of the bullet hole through the bedroom skylight, raised an eyebrow at the lack of furniture in the ranch-style house and turned to his squad of detectives investigating one of the latest home invasions in this southern Arizona city.

A 21-year-old man had been pistol-whipped throughout the house, the gun discharging at one point, as the attackers demanded money, the victim reported. His wife had been bathing their 3-month-old son when the intruders arrived.

“At least they didn’t put the gun in the baby’s mouth like we’ve seen before,” Sergeant Azuelo said. That same afternoon this month, his squad was called to the scene of another home invasion, one involving the abduction of a 14-year-old boy.

This city, an hour’s drive north of the Mexican border, is coping with a wave of drug crime the police suspect is tied to the bloody battles between Mexico’s drug cartels and the efforts to stamp them out.

The violence continues

MCALLEN, Texas (AP) — A shooting that injured a sheriff’s deputy was the first indisputable case of spillover violence from the Mexican drug wars in Hidalgo County, the local sheriff said Monday.

Sheriff Lupe Trevino, who previously said there was no direct spillover violence in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, said the Sunday shootout erupted while one of his deputies investigated a reported kidnapping and drug deal.

“I have to say that with this particular incident, the way the witnesses and the information that we have gotten particularly in the federal system, this is the first recorded spillover violence event that we have experienced — and unfortunately got one of our deputies shot,” Trevino said.

One suspect was killed and two were wounded. In all, six people were taken into custody, including the alleged kidnapping victim, and are awaiting charges, the sheriff said.

The sheriff said a protective vest probably saved the life of Deputy Hugo Rodriguez, who was shot in the chest, abdomen and leg. He is recovering at a hospital.

Trevino said the reported kidnapping was a bid to recover marijuana stolen when the Gulf cartel’s reputed second-in-command, Samuel Flores Borrego, was killed in September.

“It started in Mexico, it had a violent confrontation in Mexico, that violent confrontation was spilled over here. This is the very first one that we can actually say, ‘Yes, here it is. It has happened,’” Trevino said.

The moron who occupies the post of Attorney General of the United States claims the violence in Mexico stems from the flow of illegal weapons into Mexico. His solution was to send 2000 more.

Which cartel controls which areas of Mexico appears to be known.

If we can find obscure terrorists in Pakistan and Afghanistan and blow them to kingdom come, why can’t we do the same to the very real danger right at our own door? Mexico is losing the battle. It’s time to do what they cannot. We have the technology and the ability. Obama is big on knocking off leaders of sovereign nations in the Middle East and Africa but is impotent when it comes to the threat next door. He’d rather disarm US citizens.

    Now Now! You can’t be expecting anything resembling common sense from the clowns in charge here.

    Seriously, with this administration, it is fine if the Mexican army crosses our borders and does whatever. I’m sure however with Fox in Mexico crying about their sovereignty, this administration would use that as an excuse not to persue such a course. Legally, I’m not sure we could anyway. Could we do it? Damned right we could. Does anyone in government here have the balls (and that includes the entrenched Republican scum as well) to do something like this? NO!

    And lets not forget. Prince Harry, Princess Nancy, President Bozo and the Democratic party and worse of all the Republican establishment are way to busy cowtowing to the illegal Mexican alien population here. After all, its more important to push illegal alien voting than it is enforce the laws of the land.

    Finally, as not only the Fast and Furious scandal points out, but the D.C. political circus shows us time and again. Our elected leaders are so out of touch with the people, they are so into their own power lust and in fact are so involved in pushing their own lies and deceit so as to keep their power, lives be damned that the chance of them ever taking serious action is remote at best.

    And while I’m on my soapbox here, lets not forget the during the Republican debate stuff as well as the majority of the election and for that matter political coverage of all kinds, illegal aliens and the drug cartel nightmare that has crossed more than once into our country has pretty much been out of sight and out of mind. The administration doesn’t give a damn as far as American lives down there and the establishment Republicans apparently don’t have the balls to even discuss it1

    The Cartels aren’t the primary source of the violence.  That, according to the locals I know in Juarez and other border towns are the Zetas (a wannabe cartel composed of ex-Latin American special forces trained with our “war on drugs” money) and various street gangs who are into kidnapping, carjacking and extortion.  The Cartels are in the drug business, and the rampant violence, with it’s accompanying publicity and military presence is bad for their business.

    The Cartels, are, according to some reputable people I know, actually hunting down the kidnap gangs and exterminating them.

    The solution to the violence is; short term, elect an administration in Mexico that’s willing to go back to the old days, when the Cartels alternately owned administrations and the peace was kept, and long term, legalize and tax recreational drugs in the US.  The puritans amongst us, in their extra Constitutional zeal, are the ones who’ve driven up the profit margin of drugs to the point that many in the third world are more than willing to kill for their cut of the business.

    Remember how Prohibition worked out?

    Why did anyone think it would work out any better this time?

    There’s a co-dependent relationship between U.S. street gangs and Mexican drug cartels on one side, and the $15 billion per year War on Drugs infrastructure on the other.  You don’t have one without the other.

    The prohibition mentality created and sustains the entire situation.

    So, drj.. how does an unmanned predator drone tell the difference between one who is a drug cartel runner, and just an illegal immigrant?

    Or do you think both are equal degenerates, and there is no difference whether you kill either of them via a drone missile?

  12. The situation down here has been going south for over three decades now while all both parites can do about it is blame each other, make excuses, and tell any idiot who will listen that “Everything is under control! There is nothing for no-one to be concerned about”. Many of our state and federal prisons are controlled by mexican mob and cartel thugs and their gangs. The same for many city gangs as well. The drug business is alive and doing well, and has been. So is the forced prostitution of minors both boys and girls, and women in general, kidnappings and ransom, the general destruction of homes, businesses, and property on our side of the border. Drive down south on the back roads and you can bloody well see how well that damn border is being enforced. Our agents do an excellent job with what they have, but they don’t have near enough to stop the tide, and never have. And someone hit the nail on the head here on this thread when he said that no-one is going to do anything at all about it. Not until the stinking stuff really hits the fan so hard that not even the lame stream press, the democrats, and republicans will be able to ignore it any longer. You would think two American agents would be enough along with the rest of the murdered people. But No! Unfortunately that means alot of innocent Americans will have to die first.  A much bigger body count will be needed before anyone grows some backbone to stop it. And then we will hear the same thing we did after 9/11 “we had no idea! No warnnings at all! How could this be!” Same old story, different problem, same old solution from our same old professional politicians who keep getting voted in because they are “deemed electable” by those esteemed individuals who know so much better what we need than we the people do.

    A predator drone strike?  That’d be demanding a physical military presence inside Mexican borders just to get transmission stations and relay systems up and running to predator pilot crews along with eyes and ears on the dirt to get intel to id targets and that’d be a political nightmare to commit to without Mexican Government approval with Military backing.  Mexico’s military, corrupt or not, would take American Military presence in its Soverign Air Space and soil as a direct threat even if it was intended to help relieve Mexico of any Cartel issues unless we seek permission by their Government (which would be never).  Ontop of that many of the Cartels are providing a perverted role of, “Protector” or Security force to Mexican citizens in districts that suffer from oppressive Government officals on the dime of rival cartels so attacking one Cartel alone would be smacking a Hornets nest of various problems.

    Assault just one Cartel and we could see the forging of a Cartel Alliance to wage unrestrained warfare on American soil by such an Alliance that views the Geneva Convention as something to use as toliet paper.  Predator Drone Strikes might hit a high valued target, but reactionary responses to such hits on American soil would be utterly high on Civilian population.  Is this a good thing to have?

    Let alone the UN would have a seizure with the news of American forces invading it’s southern Neighbor.  We’re already on the hated list by various Nations who would love to see a few of our Citizens and Soliders/Generals tried as War Criminals in the World Court.  This would be fuel to the fire, no matter how good the intentions are.

    We would need the backing of, what little remains, of the uncorrupt legit leadership of Mexico to form a Military Alliance to commit even half of such a plan.  And the Mexican people aren’t exactly keen to another Nation just suddenly raining fire down on their cities and farms so such an Alliance with Mexico would be almost non-existant.  The recent DoJ bungle with Fast and Furious has already alienated Mexican Authorities to American attempts at fighting Cartels, which further prevents such co-operation between the two Nations.

    The stronger more direct means to fight any sort of business is to remove the customer base’s ablity to purchase a product, be it a legal or illegal product.  Without the buyers in the US market, there would be little interest to supply the US market and they would go elsewhere to make a sell.  How to go about removing the buyers is a core moral issue in of itself and I dread to think of what types of solutions there could be done let alone the negative backlashes or attempts to circumvent such plans, let alone the issues of personal liberties that could be made.

    Afghanistan is a different beast of nature than Mexico.  Where as Afghanistan is a nation composed Warlord bands and various Tribes formerly under Taliban rule that fought against the Soviets and now the USA, Mexico is a Federal Government with a Military armed with our own gear and trained in War Games along with us.   Where as Afghanistan is on another Contienent and its any warfighters agins the Sates trying to enter and attack would have a hard time, Mexican warfighters seeking to hit soft American Targets would have a far easier time using asymetrical warfare means to hit the US where it truly hurts, our Citizens in our own cities.  The Cartels have far reaching grasp all the way up to New York and New England.  We are already on a hated list with the offical Mexican Government prior to Fast and Furious and after that bungle they’re extremely cautious to even communicate within offical channels.  This is the 1910′s all over again for between the two Nations.  Suddenly raining down hell on suspect cartel locations would only bring the ire of the Mexican Authorities onto US forces and give them enough reason to take more aggressive pot shots at our Border agents as is.

    We have used Predator drones effectively to eradicate anti-American terrorists throughout the world. Maybe it’s time to target Mexican drug cartels in the same manner.
    Give the Mexican government an ultimatum: Take care of business or the United States will solve the problem for you. Let drug cartel members, from top to bottom, look to the uncertain skies with dread.

  33. cartels are invading the United States

    Mexican drug cartels are invading the United States. These cartels have a propensity for violence beyond the imagination of most civilized people. Absolutely, without hesitation I would invade the airspace of Mexico and subject cartel members to the same fate as the Taliban and Al Qaeda. The Mexican government may be too weak to protect their citizens, but the United States is not. We have successfully neutralized terrorists thousands of miles from our boarders but somehow it’s out of bounds to carry out the same successful operations a stone’s throw across our own border? I think not, and you won’t think so either when these cartels do to us what they are doing to Mexico.

    Different sides of the same coin, dispatch both of them.

    Illegal aliens are crossing the border on foot and in vehicles and by doing so they are making the job of the drug-smuggler all the easier as perusing the illegals consumes valuable resources that would otherwise go to apprehending the drug-dealers.

  40. Predator drones do a good job telling friend from foe in Afghanistan and Pakistan why would it be any different in Mexico.
    The short letter to the editor I wrote has nothing to do with illegal immigration it concerns violent drug cartels that are infiltrating the United States. Nobody wants war with Mexico but they have been unable or unwilling to eliminate these cartels. We have a God given right to defend ourselves from a threat greater than either Al Qaeda or the Taliban . If you can’t see that you are as blind as a bat.
    Pro drug legalization elements have snooted into this argument and are irrelevant to the point of my letter, they are piggy backing off me to advance their own agenda.

    very interesting, the future might be closer to that kind of elimination, if that country

    2. Does the flood of drugs from Mexico constitute a war with the US? Doesn’t that constitute at least as great threat to this country as was Libya?

    I thought you understood how markets work. When you prohibit something that people are determined to have, prices become very high and it becomes highly profitable for organized crime to supply that commodity. You then have to cope with violent criminal organizations as well as with the social problems that came with the illegal commodity in the first place. U.S. government policy has created the Mexican drug cartels. They’re getting an estimated 60% of their income from marijuana smuggling. Decriminalization would quickly put an end to that.

    I don’t know what Libya is supposed to have to do with this.

    I don’t agree that USA HAS CREATE THE DRUG CARTEL,
    NO ONE CREATE CRIMINALS, YOU ARE OR YOUR NOT, IT IS IN THE CORE OF THE INDIVIDUAL
    to be attracted by crimes,
    you can say that some AMERICANS ARE CONSUMER OF THE PRODUCT, BUT IT’S NOT THE WHOLE COUNTRY’S FAULT, those who consume are person with their own will to decide, until they get hook on it,
    then they reach the no return road, and they get finally burn by their addiction, it is very sad,
    but you cannot chain them to prevent it, when they have reach the no return ,

    @Greg:

    I thought you understood how markets work. When you prohibit something that people are determined to have, prices become very high and it becomes highly profitable for organized crime to supply that commodity. You then have to cope with violent criminal organizations as well as with the social problems that came with the illegal commodity in the first place. U.S. government policy has created the Mexican drug cartels. They’re getting an estimated 60% of their income from marijuana smuggling. Decriminalization would quickly put an end to that.

    Murder is expensive too, Greg. All those lawyers and trials cost a fortune. Why not legalize murder and we’ll save a bundle, won’t we?

    This is so typically liberal. Let’s not correct the illegal behavior, let’s legalize it. And it is why society spirals downward. Liberals would have us become Rome.

    hi,
    your gadget would be a good weapon to also pulverize the EIDS ON WARZONE.
    I am so surprise that nothing effective that I don’t know yet, has been created yet, after so many horrible deaths
    AND INJURIES OF SOLDIERS at this time. I mean something light weight, probing deep in the ground,
    sweeping the ground quicly , how about the gadget attach or taken out when not in use to a tank or vehicule all terrains,
    with your laser beam on the gadget, and giving you an electronic reading where and when it locate the EIDS, WITH MORE INFOS, LIKE THE AMOUNT OF EXPLOSIF ECETERA, AND THE GADGET HAVING THE ABILITY TO TRIGGER ALL THE CLUSTER FROM A KNOWN DISTANCE
    HAVING MAGNIFIED READING EYE, WELL WHAT EVER MORE OF NEEDED TO BECOME ON TOP OF THAT DEATH WEAPON, SO TO HAVE THE ENEMY JUDGE IT AS NO MORE EFFICIENT AND
    OF NO MORE NECESSARY USE, BECAUSE NO MORE OFFENSIVE.
    BYE
