The Mexican government needs to be very worried if the drug cartels got this load of explosives.
You could take out a tank or APC with just 10 pounds of explosive.
18 tons could make a lot of IEDs to use against Mexican government troops.
This would be cause for the US to deploy troops on the border.
If you live along the border you need to be armed and prepared.
If the drug cartels decide to cross it may be up to the people to protect themselves till US troops can drive the cartels back across the border.
North American Union
yes if the Mexican government falls to the drug cartels then US and likely canadian troops
would just take over Mexico.
Then you would have a North American Union.
Not with a Mexican government as it stands now but as a protectorate
of the US and Canada.
Canada can have the east side of Mexico and the US the west.
and we can both share all the resorts on both coast for winter vacations.
This would bring a lot of money into Mexico and the people of Mexico would see improvement in there life if Americans and canadians felt safe to go to
Mexico like they travel in between the US and Canada.
This could NEVER happen with the government in power in mexico now.
And most of the Mexican people would likely not even mind us taking over there corrupt government and turning Mexico into a protectorate like the US
protectorates of American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Northern Mariana Islands.
They would then have a better living conditions. wages and working laws would be better.
This is the only way i see Mexico in a North American Union.
And this is the only way the drug cartels would ever be stopped.
How many of you from other countries would go to Mexico if it was a safe and non corrupt county and had fairly and honestly applied laws and no more
corruption. A country like Costa Rica is now.
