President Trump Warns The USA May Be Ready To ‘Wage WAR’ On Mexican Drug Cartels [VIDEO]

Still thinking what the Democrats are feeding us about how President Trump’s assessment of the border situation is a “manufactured crisis??” I bet if you ask this family, they’ll tell you something different.

President Donald Trump warned Tuesday that the United States is “ready, willing & able” to send troops to Mexico in order to crush the drug cartels after he heard the news of the murders, and I believe his rationale is perfectly sane.

The family was allegedly mistaken for rivals of the cartel, resulting in a brutal scene where children and mothers were locked inside of a car and burned.

Part of me hopes Trump does send in the military, but as always, putting our troops on the line is a big deal. Ultimately, however, I believe it’s time we put our troops in action to defend OUR country instead of sending them off to some desert or a rice paddy halfway across the world to fight for someone else’s freedom and stability while leaving us unprotected and vulnerable.

Unfortunately, the latest information we have is that Mexico has declined to help us, so if we do this, we’re on our own.

From The Hill:

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador batted down a Tuesday offer from President Trump to use U.S. military forces against Mexican drug cartels to “wipe them off the face of the earth.”

Trump called for “an army to defeat an army” after reports emerged that at least 10 members of a Mormon family with dual U.S.-Mexico citizenship were killed, allegedly by cartel gunmen, in northern Mexico.

What I really hope for is that he will use the same kind of approach that Israel does. They go to war with no punches pulled. Let’s forget about the stupid “rules of engagement” here. Everything about cartel activity is wrong, from drug trafficking to smuggling children in to be used as playthings for perverted pedophiles.

Perhaps this is the trigger we needed to take some purposeful action above and beyond what we’ve been doing. I believe if we hit them hard, fast, and continuously we can cripple and/or destroy a great portion, if not all, of the criminal activity. We hit ISIS where it hurts, and it’s time to get serious against the cartels. They’re terrorists right here in our own back yard.

This from Fox News:

At least six children and three women living in a faith-based community of U.S. citizens in Mexico were shot to death Monday in the northern part of the country, and six more children were wounded after their convoy came under fire during a brazen daylight ambush believed to have been carried out by gunmen affiliated with the cartels.

Alfonso Durazo, Mexico’s top security official, confirmed the six deaths, adding that six more children were wounded in the attack, with five transferred to hospitals in Phoenix, Ariz.

He had indicated that one child was still missing, although relatives later appeared to indicate that the girl, Mckenzie Langford, age 9, who had been grazed in the arm by a bullet and had gone for help only to get lost in the dark, was eventually found.

All the victims are believed to be members of the extended LeBaron family, who live in a religious community in La Mora, northern Mexico, a decades-old settlement in Sonora state founded as part of an offshoot of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints around 70 miles south of Douglas, Ariz.

They said the group was attacked while traveling in a convoy of three SUVs. Durazo said the gunmen may have mistaken the SUV convoy for rival gangs. Police first found a burned-out Chevy Tahoe with five people. About 11 miles up the mountainous dirt road, they found a Suburban with a dead woman and two dead children inside. Farther on, they found a second Suburban and, about 15 yards away, the body of a woman.

The victims were all dual Mexican and U.S. citizens and were traveling back to the U.S. when they were ambushed, according to Utah’s KUTV.
