Saber Rattling at Mexico

The failed former president of the USA wanted to build a wall to keep out Mexicans. (“And Mexico will pay for the wall!”)

Another American politician wants to up the ante by threatening to send troops into Mexico.

DeSantis said he would send Special Forces after the cartels in Mexico as president

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Saturday reiterated his pledge to send US Special Forces into Mexico to confront drug cartels if he is elected president, saying, “We are going to act.”

The Florida governor first addressed the issue Wednesday night at the GOP presidential debate. When asked whether he would support sending Special Forces into Mexico, DeSantis answered clearly: “Yes, and I will do it on day one.”

It’s as if he actually believes that starting an international war on this continent will eliminate America’s demand for mood-altering substances. Maybe it might be better to address why so many Americas are dissatisfied with their mood and seek mental escape from their circumstances in life.

Even if DeSantiscwere able to eliminate the presence of drug distributors in Mexico, it would do nothing to address the demand side of the marketplace. Suppliers would simply use a different route, either by amphibious landings on three coasts, or through the US border with Canada. And then we would have a US invasion of Canada.
