Good luck with that. We did covert operations with US soldiers in Colombia during the 80's and 90's. We are still there in many ways and cocaine is more potent, more prevalent and cheaper than it was then. The majority of coca production just moved. Until you can cover every square inch of the globe militarily, you're just swatting at flies.
Again, history proves that.
