Profiled Responses to Dope, Inc.’s Terror Wave in Mexico
Nov. 6, 2019 (EIRNS)—The narco-terror wave launched in Mexico by Dope, Inc. over the last few weeks, has led to numerous profiled responses on both sides of the border, of exactly the sort that the British Empire would be looking for. Many well-meaning Mexican authorities, including President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, are saying that they don’t want to go back to the bad old days of trying to arrest drug cartel bosses and militarily defeat them, because of all the violence and bloodshed it produced before. Outright agents, such as Soros-ally and former Foreign Minister Jorge Castañeda, are using the violence and terror in the population to demand surrender now (i.e., drug legalization).
On the U.S. side, tough talking cowboys are saying it’s time for the U.S. to militarily take out the cartels in Mexico, whether the Mexican government likes it or not. But for all the tough talk, they don’t say one word about taking on what is really behind the drug trade: the major Wall Street and City of London banks. That is where a serious war on drugs must start, as Lyndon LaRouche repeatedly explained.
For example, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) told Fox News:
“It’s plain that the Mexican government can’t handle this.... The only thing that can counteract bullets is more and bigger bullets. If the Mexican government cannot protect American citizens in Mexico, then the United States may have to take matters into our own hands.... We can certainly defend American citizens inside Mexico if Mexico is not willing or able to do so.”
Cotton was referring to the Nov. 4 murder by drug cartels of an American family of nine, including six children, that were living in Mexico.
Even Col. Pat Lang (ret.) chose to back Cotton and reprint a December 2009 posting from his blog, with the title, “JSOC and the Mexican Drug Lords,” in which he said:
“JSOC [Joint Special Operations Command] appears to be running out of ‘high value targets,’ in the places where they have been used so successfully.... I suggest that they should be unleashed on the Mexican drug cartels. Kill or capture.” Lang wrote: “I wrote this in 2009. If the Mexican government does not clean up their act ... For once I agree with Senator Tom Cotton....”
Writing in the Washington Examiner, Tom Rogan, born in London and with a BA in War Studies from King’s College London, in the U.K., wrote an op-ed headlined “Mexico’s President AMLO Must Confront the Cartels, or Else the U.S. Has To Do It for Him,” arguing that “this latest attack [on Nov. 4] offers stark proof that U.S. national security faces an intolerable threat.... America must defend its citizens.” Rogan further blusters that if President López Obrador (called by his initials “AMLO”) fails to take “decisive action” against the drug cartels, then “Trump should issue a covert action finding authorizing the U.S. government to take decisive action. This action would include rendition operations, lethal strikes, and the seizure of cartel assets.”
At the end of his opinion column, Rogan takes off his John Wayne cowboy hat long enough to call for drug legalization:
“The cartels can only be constrained by force. Yes, that constraint requires a much deeper introspection among young Americans as to the costs of their snorting habits. As a country, we should consider drug law reforms that might reduce the street price of illegal drugs and thus reduce cartel profit margins. Nevertheless, American coercive action is necessary.”
