    Send in those marines, rangers, us special forces and kill anyone connected. Anyone. Even if its the kids of cartel members. Wipe the slate clean.

    Laws don’t stop people from buying or using drugs-not the dealers or the drug users. According to doctors, prison time is not an effective cure for drug addiction, it’s actually a large producer of addicts. Any time there is a demand for a product, a supplier will appear if there’s money to be made, no matter how bloody the business. That’s basic supply/demand economics. So in addition to crushing the already nonexistent prospects of drug addicts, criminalizing any product or service just creates an untaxed, unregulated black-market, host to a slew of non-related criminal activity like slavery and murder.
    Fun fact: 90% of the cocaine produced by the cartels is sold to Americans. The huge profits the cartels are receiving pays for their guns, which has in turn created a mass exodus of people fleeing from those regions. The USA has interment camps (wtf is happening over there Americans??) full of destitute refugees, women and children with the same story: they will be murdered by gangs if they go back. So..Everyone is trying to figure out how to combat the cartels but the solution is staring us in the face: Destroy the supply/demand making them rich by legalizing cocaine. In one fell swoop, there’s no more coke dealers, no cartels, no refugee crises, and all the money Americans spend on cocaine is TAXED. That means addicts pay for the public assistance they use, and why break into your house when there’s free drugs at the clinic?? Before you disagree, I hope you take good look at the criminalization of cocaine and other drugs, and ask yourself if the bloody violence, broken families and empty-eyed children seems like an acceptable side-effect in the war against all the primarily non-habitual coke users you are unlikely to be personally harmed by, ever. Well aside from asking those stupid frat kids to turn down the music at 4am

    May God give the people of Mexico a way out of their oppression. No wonder why they are fleeing this insane violence.

    the only thing is that they need to change the boarder agents from time to time like every 2 to 5 years don't allow them to be corrupt put a wall so they can't walk in put cameras on the wall have people watch them like Canada does have different leaders switch ever 5 years to 10 years as well so they can't get corrupt either stopping the drugs would be a billion dollars expense each year but yet Canada does it I mean come on you cant walk into Canada even as Americans they don't allow us in with out going through the board checks so why should we its that's simple you have to spend money to save your people but that's just it the gov doesn't care about its people they collect over a billion a year from the cartels look it up bro

    Until the US doesn't treat addicts not as criminals but as sick people that need treatment AND make assault weapons either harder to obtain or plain illegal to posses, the drug violence in Mexico is gonna keep spreading. There's people fighting against corruption and poverty (more than before) that are the main reason people join cartels and that's helping the good cause, but the main power of the drug gangs resides in their weapons and money. It's not just Mexican government that has let all of this happen, it's also because the US is full of guns and junkies and the Mexican criminals, being smartasses themselves, see a goldmine of oportunity to make profit out of it.

    When I lived in Guanajuato during 2013, about 12 musicians in a popular band were stopped on a highway and taken out of their tour bus by a cartel-then assassinated. Not just one singer/songwriter, but the entire band. Then you have the government-using Pegasus Software leased from a company in Zionist Israel-intimidating and killing journalists, spokespersons and political dissenters ...

    Drug cartels are businesses in an impoverished country who cater to an under-served need..... The need for Americans to consume profuse amounts of drugs and rot their fucking brains away!!!
    If it wasn't for shithead druggies like Joe Rogan, they wouldn't be murdering each other trying to make a buck selling Joe and his buddies drugs. America is responsible for the violence in Mexico. America created cartels in Columbia with their coke addiction in the 80's. The Mexican cartels became distributors who share a border with us after the Columbians couldn't smuggle in the drugs by sea or air easily.
    America created MS-13 and 18th Street (in L.A.) and other street gangs who distribute illicit drugs and fight/kill over territory. Remove the profit motive of drugs and Mexico's and America's death rates and crime rates plummet.
    So in summary, if you want to clean up America AND Mexico at once, go give some fentanyl to your local drug addicts and MAGA! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
    Hey, Joe try this fentanyl, err happy dragon powder! It'll get you so high you'll commune with God bro!

    This guy is exaggerating many of these claims and also confusing his historic analysis of the situation in Mexico. I’m at University of California student majoring in peace and reconciliation in Conflict- target analyses: Mexican Organized Crime. I’ve often visit Tijuana and stay their for weeks at a time, I’ve never been to Afghanistan, but I’m pretty sure that I would prefer to work in Tijuana!!! I would enjoy a discussion with this man! He’s fabricating....
    I won’t bore anybody here with my thesis, simply just take some time to fact check and you’ll find that mutilation such as beheadings, specifically, those that are recorded for publicity respective to cartel and radical terrorism can be traced back to 2004 when the Taliban terrorized once more with the beheading of Journalist Nick Berg, you won’t find anything of such terrible nature committed by the Cartels until 2007, After Mexican President Felipe Calderon entered office and declared war against the Cartels. The PGR and the military focused on 3 cartels while the law enforcement was tasked with the smaller organizations, however, corruption led to a focus on 1 particular cartel, the Gulf Cartel who’s security force was a gang of former Mexican commandos who called them selves Los Zetas, who in my opinion are narco terrorist, thus this created power vacuums and opportunity’s for the most powerful crime organization in the world to move in on territory that had been dominated by the local cartels. Hence, Los Zetas are in fact the ones who were inspired by radical terrorist mutilations on video, from that a tipping point occurred in which every cartel and even posers from small non-cartel syndicates began using the fear tactic.
