Invasion USA I - - Drugs.

This is coolbert:

"How would you like it, if someone invaded your country??!!" - - Common refrain heard from the mouths of anti-war activists protesting the American invasion of Iraq.

The next series of blog entries deals with the real-live invasion of the U.S. An on-going, several decades long invasion by the armed gangs of the Latin American drug cartels. At the current time, primarily the armed gangs of the Mexican drug lords. Aided and abetted in some instances by forces of the Mexican government.

An invasion that has been countered ONLY IN A TRIFLING manner to date by U.S. military forces. An invasion that has been seen as ONLY A LAW ENFORCEMENT ISSUE AND NOTHING MORE!!

[the posse comitatus law of 1876 prohibits the U.S. military from being involved in law enforcement issues.]

Nonetheless, the U.S. military, hook, line and sinker has become embroiled in the anti-drug war.

War!!?? I think some devoted readers will say "the anti-drug campaign is not war as war is traditionally understood!"

And that is correct. NOT war in the traditional sense. Two groups, each using arms, each attempting to impose their will on the other??!! Is this what the anti-drug campaign is??!! War as conflict existing somewhere along the war-peace/polar opposite/sliding scale continuum??!!

The various branches of the U.S. military ARE NOW and have been for some time involved in this anti-drug war, albeit primarily in a surveillance/reconnaissance role. A role that may at any time become more intense and heated??!!

Posse comitatus notwithstanding, the use of U.S. military forces in the anti-drug campaign will only become greater as the nexus of drug lords/terrorists/illegal migrants becomes more emboldened and brazen.
