Should the United States invade Mexico and Columbia and destroy the cartel.

The Mexican and Columbia governments are clearly corrupt and both have its hands in the drug cartels. Why? There is no freaking way on earth you can export between $50 billion dollars a year worth of drugs unless the government knows. The Presidents of both countries may not have a clue but someone in both governments and most definitely in both law enforcement agency's is helping. Its time America took a bold stand to stop the export of deadly drugs into our country. We have tried everything and it has failed. Mexicans are constantly invading our borders, thousands a day come here, costing billions of dollars per year on just that with out the drugs. Illegal immigration and the drug war is costing at least $80 billion per year. The drug war cost 30 billion dollars per year alone and its only going to go up, unless we legalize cocaine in and heroin. Marijuana should be legalized in every state, a joint doesn't do anything to you, but cocaine and heroin will kill you for sure. Both cocaine and heroin kill about 20 thousand people per year. Both countries cartels are brutally murdering thousands of people each year. Why are we messing with these countries all these years, the United States has to take a firm stand in the war on drugs. We must send a message to both countries that if they do not act as good neighbors and stop this illegal drug export we will do something drastic to force the issue. The way to win this war is to go to the source of what you are trying to stop being exported and destroy it, and the only way to do that is to be able to move about the country unannounced and freely. This strategy is the only strategy because every other strategy is not working.

    This is why I don't like the USA as a whole that much, and why many people don't. They always invade and bother other countries! Just mind your own business!

    Yeah, unfortunately Mexico is only going to hold us back as a society. they have a beautiful country and rich culture but every generation degrades the value of such. Nothing against the individual it's the very conscious that will never change, they dirty their cities, they appreciate more the stealing that the learning, they blame their government for their lack of leadership without even considering what they do to collaborate. The entire country is corrupt, violent and ignorant. With all do respect I don't believe they will ever change, they are one of the mayor cancer in modern society. The US might have a lot of issues from different stand points but at the end we will always stand together and will never allow our society to crumble. Sorry but if there is ever a meteorite hitting the earth , it should be Mexico where it should land. Nothing personal its just the way they made it to be.

    End the U.S. led drug war, end NAFTA, stop undercutting mexican goods and impoverishing the common people (who then turn to crime for income). End the unmitigated flood of assault rifles that makes its way into the hands of thugs.

    Invasions have worked so well. Who do we attack when we enter these countries? Government officials, common citizens of such countries? Just who?

    War on drugs should just be ended and regulated. Such a war encourages drug use, not discourages it. Shame this country never learned anything from prohibition.

    It would have to be a targeted strike backed up by intelligence as we do in Afghanistan.

    This is a hypothetical situation type question by the way although I do feel that some American generation in the future may get disgusted with fighting the war on drugs so ineffectively that this may become an possible option. I truly believe however that it was a huge mistake to back the over throw of the Spanish ruling governments in many of these nations because simply, they have proved they can not manage their affairs properly. Spain has showed that it has a government that has to be respected simply because they do not have the drug and poverty problems that many of these once occupied nations and Islands have presently. We should have helped the Spanish keep these territories.

    Speak for yourself druggy, even medical drugs should be regulated. Only an ignorant person would say, "who cares" when your 12 year old rather smoke pot than learn about universe, we took another step back into ignorance, but maybe people like you preferred to be ignorant, then you won't have much to worry about. We need to move forward as one society, one government , one species , in order to reach our next phase as humans in the universe. Oh but maybe you like to pop a pill and lay on the couch all day.

    It would be a bad idea for U.S. to invade Mexico. That isn't going to solve anything at all. The illegal drug problems that exist are far too huge for an Army to eradicate entirely. Drugs are rampant worldwide, and users in U.S. will get "their fix" one way or another.
    If I were President, I would pull troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq, and put our armed forces along the Mexican border. We need a stronger defense against drug cartels to the south. And I think military families will
    Be stronger too, having their husbands, wives, sons and daughters fighting for their country state-side.

    I think we SHOULD invade Mexico and Columbia just for logistical purposes!!! Snuffing out the drug cartels and saving all that money on the drug war is a biproduct of the amout of land and resources we would inherit!!! Along would also come the countries problems but we would just assimilate them into the problems we already have!!! Think of the land that they have done nothing with and then the growth of our own size!!! WOW!!! We would be unstoppable!!!

    Actually we should take all of South America!!! If we instilled our government and way of doing things I don't think it would be wrong!!! Actually I'm sure it would be a HUGE improvement considering the corrupt and not very effective government they have now!!! I would not want to change there way of life but merely assimilate them into America!!! They would pay taxes and in turn have access to foodstamps and our medical care as we do!!! It would be touch and go at first but after about 10 years or so it would be great!!! We would then have all of those resources,beaches,ports,land!!!! We could extinguish the drug trade from the inside!!! After it was all said and done they and we would be better off!!! I think it would be win win!!!hell I don't know why both governments have not gotten together to speak about a merger already it seems it would be in there best interests!!!!

    I don't know where you From, but America my country might not have always made the best decision on who to invade but at the end no matter what we are the main reason democracy exists around the globe. Without it you would be able to make those stupid comments. Be proud we Americans will govern the world some day and yeah we need to get rid of the cancer of the world, not by color or religion but by ignorance and cruelty. Countries like Mexico should sink in a hole, never to being seeing again.

    Didn't Russia invade Georgia not to long ago for no real reason.

    The 2008 South Ossetia War or Russo-Georgian War (in Russia also known as the Five-Day War) was an armed conflict in August 2008 between Georgia on one side, and Russia and separatist governments of South Ossetia and Abkhazia on the other.

    The 1991–1992 South Ossetia War between ethnic Georgians and Ossetians had left slightly more than a half of South Ossetia under de-facto control of a Russian-backed internationally unrecognised government.[49][50] Most ethnic Georgian parts of South Ossetia remained under the control of Georgia (Akhalgori district, and most villages surrounding Tskhinvali), with Georgian, North Ossetian and Russian Joint peacekeeping force present in the territories. A similar situation existed in Abkhazia after the War in Abkhazia (1992–1993). Increasing tensions escalated during the summer months of 2008. On 5 August, Russia officially decided to defend South Ossetia.[51]

    The Russians murdered 3 million people in Afganistan. I GUESS THIS IS WHY NO ONE LIKES RUSSIA!! HELLO IS ANYONE HOME AT ALL!!! Are you another dumb blonde or what? lol just kidding but you have to read your history before chatting with adults.
    The world is here because the United States is here. If the United States did not give Russia planes, tanks and ammunition, you would be a foot taller and speaking German or in a concentration camp.



    The Soviet war in Afghanistan was a nine-year proxy war during the Cold war involving the Soviet Union, supporting the Marxist-Leninist government of the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan[15] against the Afghan Mujahideen guerrilla movement and foreign "Arab–Afghan" volunteers. The mujahideen received unofficial military and/or financial support from a variety of countries including the United States, Saudi Arabia, the United Kingdom, Pakistan, Israel, Indonesia and China. The Afghan government, with the Soviet Union as its ally, received different aid from the government of India under Indira Gandhi.

    The initial Soviet deployment of the 40th Army in Afghanistan began on December 24, 1979 under Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev.[16] The final troop withdrawal started on May 15, 1988, and ended on February 15, 1989 under the last Soviet leader Mikha...

Due to the interminable nature of the war, the conflict in Afghanistan has sometimes been referred to as the "Soviet Union's Vietnam War" or "the Bear Trap".[17][18][19]

    The Russians helped the North Vietnamese kill American Soldiers the Russians helped China kill Americans soldiers in Korea. The Russians have been a menace to this world for centuries. The United States has only helped people in the world be free. Lydecho, there is this thing the Romans invented, it called a BOOK! you should read one, preferably a history book then talk about the greatest country in the world. Putin still murders journalist that are critical of him. The Russians are barbarians and always will be. I don't want to go into what they did to German women when they went into Berlin in 1945, I will let you learn that on your own, you will be very very shocked.
