Border Sheriff on Mexican Cartels: ‘If Decapitating Police Officers Is Not Terrorism, What Is?’

Washington (CNSNews.com) – The federal government should designate Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations under U.S. law, according to the Republican sheriff of an Arizona county near the U.S.-Mexico border.

But a Democratic judge in Texas disagrees, saying such a designation would achieve little. Instead, said the judge, attention should be focused on illegal drug consumption by Americans.

Asked by CNSNews.com whether he would support designating Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations (FTOs) – as some lawmakers are suggesting as a way to target their finances – Sheriff Paul Babeu of Pinal County, Ariz. replied, “Absolutely.”

“They are terrorists,” said Babeu, a Republican elected official. “Literally 35,000 people have been brutally murdered in Mexico. The president just articulated we went and bombed Libya because we didn’t want possibly 1,000 civilians just killed – it would have been blood on our hands.”

“Wait a minute,” he continued. “That’s half way around the world. Look south –35,000 people killed and they’re not just regular people [but] judges, police chiefs, you know, anybody who stands up in their way.”

“They’re cutting police officers’ heads off, killing them, laying them in front of the police station,” Babeu said. “If that’s not a terrorist act, what is? They have destabilized Mexico to the point where it’s caused great concern here.”

Pinal County is located south of Phoenix, about 70 miles north of the southwest border.

Like Americans will stop buying drugs. We should just grow them here and collapse the market.

libertarians and the left agree that drug prohibition only strengthens black market organizations

it seems many people agree about this drug problem, i wonder where all the opposition must come from? there are billions of dollars at stake, lives being lost, people being locked up, who is benefiting from this so much that they want it to remain this way?

Wow. Wee and I agree on something. The reason why the mafia had such a meteoric rise was because of prohibition.

When California legalized Medicinal Pot, the Mexican drug cartels lost 1/2 of their business almost overnight. We decriminalize Hemp, allow it grow as an agricultural product (for more than just smoking), then tax any drug use like cigs, not only will we have a revenue stream, but also put a large number of the drug cartels out of business.

And I would say take that tax money and use it solely to pay back the debt. Although the problem with that would be sooner or later some politician would start to take money from the fund and use it elsewhere.
