Social Matter - Destroy The Cartels

New essay at Social Matter. Let's bring the troops home from the Middle East and Afghanistant. Let's deploy them to a theater and a contest that truly affects all of America. Let's destroy the cartels. This will also make Mexico a safer place so that Mexicans in America, many of which are just refugees of the cartel wars, can return to and build lives there again. This war will come some day, and we can choose to engage now or wait until the situation is much worse for us.

The locals would side with the cartels against foreigners. Foreigners are foreigners. If Mexicans ruled America, they'd shit on the locals because that's what foreigners do when they rule. They'll never believe that we won't do it to them. Being ruled by foreigners is the worst thing that can happen to a people, short of extermination.

Which is exactly why we cannot win in Afghanistan or the Middle East or Africa. Has anyone noticed we are still fighting in Somalia, making that war longer than the one in Afghanistan?

PS. Earl Wilbur, In the late 50's and early 60's, I attended Boston Technical High School, and our English teacher was one Don (?) Hassenfus. He later became president of Emerson College (?) in Boston. I remember him as a great teacher. Is he any relation?
