    Y'all realize that Mexico is the country that used a helicopter gunship in a raid on a cartel jefe, right?

    " Political tags — such as [...], communist, democrat, [...], fascist, liberal, conservative, [...] — are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort. "

    Then why didn't they use them here?

    Obrador, that's why.
    What if this whole crusade's a charade?
    And behind it all there's a price to be paid
    For the blood which we dine
    Justified in the name of the holy and the divine…

    One thing I'm wondering about the Mexican cartels: Do they have any endgame beyond just "continue to sell drugs"? Are they trying to overthrow the Mexican government? Or are they just trying kick the government out of certain areas so that they set up small pseudostates where they can traffic unimpeded and exploit and oppress the local population at their leisure?
    Those who beat their swords into plowshares will plow for those who do not.

    I am pretty sure it's the latter. Easier to stay under the international radar that way.

    Live rounds finding their way on to the sides of tall buildings in downtown El Paso from these gun battles is not uncommon neither.
