The Cartel is one of the biggest crime organizations in the world. They control a lot of what happens in Mexico and what they do not control themselves they are able to pay people off to control for them. This is a big problem in Mexico and is now a growing problem for America. The cartel can be compared to ISIS because of the brutal tactics they use the only difference is that money drives the cartel while religion drives ISIS. How does this affect the United States though? The cartel effects how we patrol the border, our economy and the flow of drugs into the United States.
It is a hard to break this cycle but there is a way. The first is to make it harder to transport these things over the border. If we can cut off their supplies crossing the border it would starve them of money. To do this though we need to make it so that there is no corruption at the border patrol or positions in government. This can be very hard though because the cartel can offer a lot of money to people and it can be hard to say no to that. Lastly to stop this we need to have help from the Mexican government and the FBI to preform raids on known compounds to get them out of areas that they control.

America and Canada(we are all Continental Stakeholders) would gladly send over some Special Ops to help Mexican Police route out the Gangsters and restore order.

I'd like to go after every cartel that's on American soil or in our waters. Eliminate them and then work on getting the rest. But we can't just barge into Mehico and do it, they'll have to stop being cowards and replace those who are in charge with people who will work with us. We got rid of the mafia, we should be able to get rid of the cartels. Mafias had their hands in our government like the cartels. Only difference is that the mafia only killed those who crossed them. Maybe we should bring them back and let them go after domestic gangs and cartels who are here.

This is all out of hand and it may be too late. Just look at the MSM and many in politics. Look at the "hate" speech laws now being implemented. This is Nazi Germany 2019.

Tom Clancy's Clear and Present Danger comes to mind...the special forces were cleaning house in Columbia until the politicians pulled the plug. I have to believe the cartel wouldn't stand an ice cube's chance in hell against our military talent .
Just say the word.
