Could Mexico Be The Next Islamic State?: Page 2 of 3

Could Mexico Be The Next Islamic State?

Then there's Mexico. Ah, Mexico. Liberals want you to think it's a veritable paradise. The birthplace of beautiful, hard working families that just want to come to America. It's criminal not to let them sneak under barbwire, climb over barriers, and invade people's backyards to come to our country illegally.

You have to stop and think about why so many Mexicans want to come to America in the first place. Sure, there is also a certain group of people- from any country- that would like to come to America. Throughout our history, that's been the case. But it's because the country they're coming from is terrible.

The Irish came in droves due to famine. The Italians came in droves thanks to the rise of fascism in their government. And Mexicans are coming because of rampant crime, corruption on all levels of government, and the growing rise of terrorism in their homeland.

The only difference between Mexican migrants and those from overseas is that they have the luxury of sneaking in illegally. People from Europe can't do that as easily.

You have to realize that Mexico is in a pretty bad state. And while many of the people fleeing it just want to live in peace, all that bloodshed and crime is spilling over into America. The United States has a sovereign right to protect itself. In fact, if our government didn't use every resource to defend its citizens, they'd be failing their people.

So you might say a wall is too extreme. A wall punishes the good with the bad (although we can argue whether or not people sneaking into a country, for any reason, are good at all).

But perhaps you don't realize how very bad it's gotten.

As Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan dominated the news agenda, Mexico's drug wars claimed 23,000 lives during 2016 -- second only to Syria, where 50,000 people died as a result of the civil war...

In comparison, there were 17,000 conflict deaths in Mexico in 2015 and 15,000 in 2014 according to the IISS. (CNN)

You know it's bad when the only country with more conflict death, is in a civil war. The report goes on to explain that most of the death is caused- you guess it- by the drug cartels. Their warring for territory has produced this shocking death toll.

"It is noteworthy that the largest rises in fatalities were registered in states that were key battlegrounds for control between competing, increasingly fragmented cartels," she said.

"The violence grew worse as the cartels expanded the territorial reach of their campaigns, seeking to 'cleanse' areas of rivals in their efforts to secure a monopoly on drug-trafficking routes and other criminal assets."

This is more than just your local gang-bangers, hitting the streets with drive-bys. That is bad enough, in of itself. But the level of weaponry and tactics used by Mexico's criminal class is nearing military grade. IISS described Mexico's criminals as "transnational drug-trafficking cartels, with military-grade weapons and vast financial resources." Scary stuff.

People who try to stand up to Mexico's criminal base have historically faced swift and severe retribution. The local media is all but silenced. Anyone that tries to sound the alarm is killed and disposed of.

The Mexican Los Zetas cartel used a network of oven facilities to cover-up the systematic mass extermination of innocent people during the 2011-2013 period when the cartel had complete governmental control over most of the Mexican state of Coahuila... Los Zetas had complete control of every aspect of governmental process and of the lives of Mexican citizens–including news media. (Breitbart)

Coahuila, by the way, is right on the Texas border. Hmm, wonder why the cartels took over that region?

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize the threat this poses to the U.S. Continued criminal activity in Mexico will lead to increased criminal activity in the United States. These drug cartels routinely cross the unguarded border, in attempts to unload their drugs.

And all those innocent illegal immigrants? They hire drug runners to smuggle them into the country. How do you think they come here in such large numbers?

It's a booming business. They're so good at it, they build sophisticated tunnels to sneak into places like San Diego.

Authorities discovered 224 border tunnels originating in Mexico from 1990 to March 2016, including 185 that entered the United States, according to the latest U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration annual survey. Many are shallow holes, but some are elaborately constructed with hydraulic lifts, water pumps and rail cars. (ABC News)

And those civilians that are helped by the drug cartels to enter America? They're forever indebted to those murderers and criminals.

While all this is going on, the situation is being exploited by even worse forces.
