Trump Authorizes Pentagon to Ready Reserves for Cartel Fight
originally posted by: St Udio
from the sources I have read... the Cartels will get word to the MS13 gangs and the USAs internal IslamicState compounds in all 50 States to harass & operate campaigns to eliminate Sheriffs & Police depts. along with opportune low political figures & judges...
so the activated Reserves will not be confronting troops per se... but platoon sized commando units... who strike at opportune times then flee into the population
so, Trump & Pentagon will be protecting the high profile, high visibility politicians (who are invaribily 'Swamp Creatures' upper level Democrat Senators and Representatives and a lot of 'hold over' military & LEO puppets that Obama put-in-place
trumps in a lose-lose, tight place
all the above is Pre-China troop invasion of the western USA... Mexico & Cartels' proxy armies are softening up the USA prior to UN justified China Troops entering USA west to---Keep the Peace ---

ETA: If it is harder to manufacture and import drugs into the US, this will cause a number of things to happen. I suspect that enterprising criminals from within the US will do everything they can to fill the void and more drug labs will pop up within US borders.
It’ll just mean the cartels will send more shipments to offset the ones confiscated and the drugs will get more expensive on this end leading to more crime and violence here in America. And make themselves and the criminals on this side of the border even richer.
Because that’s what’s happened for around a century.
Maybe one day we can have a President who isn’t stuck in Nancy Reagan 1980’s drug war idiocy.
