U.S. To Declare Drug Cartels "Foreign Terrorist Organizations" Despite Mexican Refusal

U.S. To Declare Drug Cartels "Foreign Terrorist Organizations" Despite Mexican Refusal
6 Comments

Mexico’s president announced Monday that he will reject any designation of drug cartels as terrorist organizations by the U.S. government.

Today, sources in the White House tell the Hal Turner Radio Show the U.S. will GO AHEAD ANYWAY and declare certain cartels as "Foreign Terrorist Organizations" and use the U.S. Military against them . . . inside Mexico . . . whether the Mexicans like it or not.

During his Monday morning press conference, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) said he would not accept the U.S.’s potential designation of cartels as foreign terrorist organizations–which could enable direct US Military actions in Mexico. 

“We will never accept that, we are not ‘vendepatrias’ (nation sellers),” Lopez Obrador said.

According to sources in the White House, this rejection "stuck in President Trump's craw."  The sources went on to say that the initial reaction in the White House was a conclusion that AMLO is on someone's payroll; why else would any President do anything to protect drug cartels?

AMLO's statements come after the relatives of nine U.S. women and children who died in a cartel ambush in Sonora revealed they would be meeting with President Donald Trump. The family is expected to ask for some cartels to be labeled as terrorist organizations.

Last week, Tamaulipas Governor Francisco Cabeza de Vaca used the term “narco-terrorism” to refer to the brazen attacks on citizens of Nuevo Laredo by a faction of Los Zetas Cartel called Cartel Del Noreste. Cabeza de Vaca publicly called out Mexico City for past inaction in confronting Los Zetas.

Earlier this year, Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) filed legislation for the most violent cartels in Mexico to be labeled as a foreign terrorist organizations, a move that would limit cartel members’ abilities to travel and provide tools to better clamp down on financial transactions.

On Monday morning, Lopez Obrador’s foreign relations minister Marcelo Ebrard called designations unnecessary and inconvenient, adding that the U.S. and Mexico have a healthy working relationship in fighting cartels. According to Ebrard, terrorist designations would give the U.S. the legal avenue to take direct action on cartels on Mexican soil.

Tonight, sources in the White House say President Trump has already decided to go ahead with the Foreign Terrorist Organization designations against the cartels anyway.

President Trump is now telling media “They will be designated … I have offered him (the Mexican president) to let us go in and clean it out,” President Trump responded. “He, so far, has rejected the offer. But at some point, something has to be done.”

The president explained that the cartels have “unlimited money” from drug smuggling and human trafficking.

“I’ve been working on that for the last 90 days,” Trump stated. “You know, designation is not that easy, you have to go through a process, and we are well into that process.”

The President told News organizations earlier this year that he was thinking about the designation. “We’re thinking about doing it very seriously. In fact, we’ve been thinking about it for a long time,” he said during an Oval Office interview.

“It’s psychological, but it’s also economic,” the President explained. “As terrorists — as terrorist organizations, the answer is yes. They are.”

Intelligence sources tell the Hal Turner Radio Show that the Mexicans have little choice but to go along.  "They don't have any military to halt whatever the US does and if they actually fight against us, we can just smash them." the source said. "If Mexico goes wild weasel and tries to ask another country for military assistance to battle us, we will simply tell that country they risk immediate, full scale war with the US if they agree." the source continued.  "Illicit drugs are killing tens of thousands of Americans every year.  This has to stop and it's going to stop -- one way or another" the source finished.

    Copperhead and Grim, I agree with both of you. I lost my wife to a drunk driver so this article really hit home for me. I don't have one bit of sympathy for anyone with a substance abuse problem. They had every opportunity to avoid all of the shit and blew it. They made their own decision and are facing the consequences then they cry because there are consequences. If you don't want to pay the price then stay away from the poisons. It's your own choice.

      Nobody put a gun to their head to do the drugs. They like the high. Drug dealers love making that easy money.

    If you have known personally, very objectively personally, drug addicts or alcoholics, the correction of these conditions and return to productive lives is very low. One in three from personal experience. They know they have the problem, and they know they want to die with or from that problem. So as they live their lives out they are putting the rest of us in jeperdy, dialy

    The unconstitutional war on drugs is a failure. Why then should we continue the farce? Decriminalize drugs, and treat the addiction as a medical issue, not a criminal one.

      Medical issue my ass, and screw decriminalizing drugs. The powers that be would love for every one of us to be stoned out of our minds and completely docile. Why do you think they've dangled the marijuana carrot for so many years? They want people to beg for it so it's they're decision to fuck up the country.

      Better solution? Make drug users, dealers, growers, transporters - everyone involved, including the rat-faced organizers of all this shit - fair game for permanent elimination. Fuck drugs and anyone that uses them.

        Drug criminalization was a UN initiative. Just because drugs are legalized does not mean everyone is going to start smoking dope. That is a very simple minded argument to put forward. Personal freedom is so passé'...

          Other than when I owned my own company, I've worked around drug users and abusers pretty much every day of my career. Fuck 'em all - they are useless sacks of shit.

          Don't play the semantics game - you know damn well I don't mean prescription medications. And don't give me any pussy shit about medical marijuana either.

            Not my intention sir...just attempting to point out that drugs ALL have medicinal properties and also toxic ones...
            As stated above, should -Choice- not be THE highest priority in a constitutional republic? (regardless of personal sentiment)

      So, legalizing drugs will fix the entire problem eh? What about the fact that the cartels are trafficking human beings for profit? What about the fact that they are helping smuggle Muslims and other terrorist members into the US for the purposes of collapsing our country? What about the fact that many of the cartels are being funded and controlled by countries such as China, Iran, etc. and are being used to undermine and attack the US, with among other things, bringing in enough Fentanyl to kill every single person in the US? What about the fact that the cartels are operating on US soil across the nation and are robbing, raping, brutalizing and murdering hundreds of US citizens?.....But, if we just legalize drugs, everything will be ok? This isn't just about the government criminalizing people who want to get high, it's about foreign powers who are using the cartels to help destroy our country from within.

        Not only foreign powers, but domestic ones as well. Keep the people docile and begging for their next fix. We need to clean our own house before worrying about everyone else's.
