uhmmmm....yeah, that was kinda my original point. So why are they not treated as Terrorists and why do we not pursue them the way we do in the ME?
You can sit there and say, "Oh Military force will never work"...well.....what we're doing now sure as hell isn't working either.
We're so hung up on trying to fix the ME....the country we should be trying to fix is Mexico.
And Mexico actually WANTS to be fixed.
It's not an infection, it's evolution. People have a natural desire for intoxicants. That is never going away.
Why are they not treated as terrorists? Are you willing to jail every drug abuser as if they give material support and are a terrorist sympathizer to terrorist organizations? No of course not because that is silly. Same way with labeling drug dealers terrorists, it's silly. Drug dealers are nothing more than businessmen that cannot survive in a legitimate market.
Uh, military force is what we are using now. It's not working. But somehow you think ramping it up a few notches is somehow going to stop or slow down the flow of drugs. It will not. The profit is too great for them to stop. Hundreds of billions a year is made off drugs worldwide and a few more bombs isn't going to make a dent in any of it.
