Ted Cruz Suggests U.S. Military Response to Mexican Cartels

Written by  Brandon Darby

LUBBOCK, Texas — U.S. Senator Ted Cruz suggested that the U.S. military should be used against Mexican transnational criminal groups (cartels). The statements were made during a one-on-one interview with the senator at the end of May at the Bayer Museum of Agriculture in Lubbock, Texas.

The senator made clear that he was not suggesting unilateral U.S. military action in Mexico, but rather a cooperative effort, as seen in Colombia.

The portion of the interview pertaining to Mexican cartels follows.

BRANDON DARBY: One of the things that’s very interesting about Texas on the border, as you know, there’s nine sectors on the Southwest Border, five of which are in Texas. Part of the problem that we have in Texas is that two of the most brutal criminal groups south of the border, which actually operate north of the border as well, as you know, are Los Zetas and the Gulf Cartel. But unlike most of the other criminal organizations in Mexico along our border, which would be Sinaloa, Juarez Cartel, Tijuana Cartel. Los Zetas and the Gulf Cartel are extremely brutal. In fact, the videos they release resemble ISIS videos. We try to challenge them as much as possible, but what more could the U.S.

The problem is that the cartels now run the Mexican government. And when you have Governors like Jerry Brown in California ruining what was a beautiful state by allowing illegals to run freely it might be better to send the troops into California first and clean up that mess.

Until Those that (are in power) dis regard Our laws are made to "pay the price" by being incarcerated (JERRY---MOON BEAM--BROWN) ;then, all is for naught. California's government is run by trolls that are "payed off" by : HOTEL CHAINS, RESTAURANT CHAINS, and other usurpers of CHEAP LABOR and "quite frankly" We Legals are sick of it. No more illegal alien votes are going to be accepted----if Our New president STEPS IN and bring down the hammer on these Communist inspired FEEL GOOD ( about themselves ) LIBERALS----progressives or however they envision today.

All drug dealers should be killed.

@ Charles Wilson:
From your comment, it may be supposed that you are a supporter of President Duterte of the Philippines; no charges, no indictment, no trial, conviction or sentence; just a summary execution in the streets a la Daesh or the Red Queen: verdict first; trial later!

What if the Mexican drug lords are peaceful Moslems from India? Would Cruz stick by his guns?

Better yet send the hollywood left wing bitches there. They love em so damn much send them & the rest of the bleeding heart blood suckin dems there. ASAP
Nancy Pelosi can lead there open arm sanctuary groups to meet & greet. All of her followers & liberal blood suckin entitlement name sayers maaybe will follow. I think this could be the best way to eliminate the communist left wingers in this country once & for all. If this group of communist such as the dems & the liberal opinko fags out in California dont like what our fine (born rite here in the U.S.A.) President is trying to do to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN then why dont just get sam hell out of here. There not Americans anyways.

200 years ago we sent the US Marines after the Barbary Pirates for similar reasons. I think it is time that we do the same thing here.

Yes, the Marines were sent in against the Barbary Pirates. A modern replication of this action is in order. President Trump should "give the word" and my brothers can go in and kick some @$$.

Take no prisoners.

Yes it is time, it is almost the same as in 1802 when Pres. Jefferson sent a US navy squadron of of frigates to Libya. Lt. OBannon and a handful of Marines took care of business. The Marine Corps killing Muslims since 1802 and Mexicans just as long. People forget that Marines were in Vera Cruz too for awhile and the banana wars. We need Chesty Puller now, where ever you are. Semper Fi.
