The United States shood fight Mexican drug cartels by dealing with them the exact same way it does terrorists in Pakistan.
Congressman Silvestro Reyes, Democrat of Texas suggested as much recently when he said the US needs to joins Mexico's fight against the drug cartel the same way we do now with terrorists in Afghanistan. "The same way we have done essentially in Pakistan take out the heads of the cartels", he said. Reyes is chairman of the very powerful House Intelligence Committee. Is this is what it will take to end the cartel drug war?
When asked if he meant employing drone missile strikes that have been so devestating against the Taliban in Pakistan he said: "I would not rule that out".
The US has been coverty operating drone aircraft in Mexico for a while, for the purpose of locating and tracking drug cartels along the border, Reyes would be in a position to know that.
Behind the scenes powerful members of the US House of Representatives and Senate have been maneuvering since the February 15th assassination of two US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents by members of the Zetas crime group.
In fact efforts are underway to classify drug cartels as "terrorist organizations" - as a means to go after them militarily. In such a case the cartels will be brutally crushed and pursued relentlessly.
These can be construed as the first early indications that the US is manuvering itself to strike the cartels hard
