Weekly Update — Fight Another ‘Terror War’ Against Drug Cartels? There’s a Better Way

The 50-year US war on drugs has been a total failure. The 20 year “war on terror” has likewise been a gigantic US government disaster. So what to do about two of the greatest policy failures in US history? According to President Trump and many in Washington, the answer is to combine them!

Completely agree with the good doctor, but unfortunately decriminalising or even legalising drugs won't change a thing. These cartels have branched into fentanyl and harder drugs since weed was legalized, also branched into human trafficking, extortion, kidnapping, avocados etc.

We should stop providing arms and aid to corrupt countries.

Lol if you think that the Cartels are only dealing in drugs let alone marijuana you are delusional Dr. Paul. Legalizing marijuana wont do shit to harm them. They know this especially since some states are legalizing it now. They adjust. They get into different markets. Sex trafficking, harder drugs, synthetic drugs, smuggling, contract killing to name a few. And they have operations all over the world. I dont think you really realize the magnitude of their influence. This isnt like the middle east where we are chasing oil to save a failing dollar this effects us. The mexican government… Read more »

Totally agree

I suggest you talk to those uniformed services that have been fighting this human and drug trafficking for decades now to see what they need and recommend in this regard. Go down to the border regions and talk with them. See what they need and then do something to provide what they recommend. The source of this problem is clearly demonstrated by the seditious vested interests represented in this ongoing House Impeachment Scam – these criminal interests are the culprits and they need to be fully exposed for who and what they are.

The drug cartel are corrupt and evil. There is no denying that. But, I am agianst it because I believe it would put American citizens too close to danger. Decriminalization and legalization of drugs will put criminals who make profit off of drugs out of business. Just like the legalization of alcohol did the mafia.

Is anyone else growing weary of War on Everything, which never works? If we had a War on War, would we need a War on War on War? Good God y'all. What is it good for?……………….. Say it again.

well at least this one would be over actual issues. even if you take out the drug aspect, the cartels still traffic humans and animals and weapons. so legalizing drugs would hurt them but certainly not stop them. of course youd have to take out the cia and fbi first… and those rich baal worshippers who rape and kill children and animals. thats at least half the gov and maybe 30% of the amer population. quite a fight that would be.

Decriminalize drugs, remove the obscene profits, take the War on Drugs budget and invest it in legitimate education & treatment programs.

Legalize marijuana. End Oxycontin.

It sounds as if Dr. Paul is suggesting that we legalize all drugs as some states have legalized Cannabis. That would be a horrible idea! Maybe I misunderstood. I have thought for a long time that drug cartels should be treated as foreign enemies. If Mexico would agree to receiving help from the US military to fight against paramilitary drug cartels, I would support it. The military has been used for worse things. This is our border, not some foreign war.

Hi John at the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation;That you are a quazzi government organisation is not in your favorfrom my point of view. That means your efforts have failed; we stillhave nuclear weapons and as a nation threaten the world with theseEVIL WEAPONS. Only Evil nations have Nuclear Weapons. Here is another cash contribution. It is probable that since you are milktoast on nuclear weapons and kowtow to government and the richinternational elite, that I will find more action oriented nuclearpeace folks to give cash donations to in the future.

A Pity dr. Paul, I otherwise agree with you on many other policy issues. But not combating an element that enslaves people along with the system that provides and supports them is not right. I disagree and would like to know what your other speakers in your video postings think about the issue.

Get rid of the profits and you get rid of the violence and other problems. Eliminate the drug laws and drug usage will drastically taper off but will never go away, these people aren't criminals but users and abusers !

No no! The Feds way is a whole lot better and a lot more efficient Trump said so! If we piss off Mexico who will make the Chevy and Fords?

Anything but build the wall.
If that's what we want, then, of course, we can't have it, even if it did interdict drugs, NARCOs, gangs, terrorists, coolie labor, and a stupid sort of tourism that holds all hell holes are just like us.
The alacrity with which Congress response to threats upon our "common values" increases exponentially with distance. Infact, it takes a negative turn at teh 3 mile limit.
If diversity is or strength, then maybe the idea is that we defend tyranny here and liberate the rest of the world?
could that be it?

Cynical Paul… Of course it can be won WHEN THE FIGHTERS ARE NOT CORRUPT. Trumpy CAN wipe out the cartels just like ISIS. If #amlo doesn't want to protect his people it the violence will spread to our country! Sorry Ron Paul BUT your wrong on this one!!

"Failure"? You assume that the strategic objective was/is to defeat drug suppliers.

Dr Paul you should be talking about the Federal Government waging a war on the American people , The real Terrorists are the politicians and Federal Government, they are the real threat to our freedom and world. Our Government has been hijacked by socialist, communist , criminal politicians. We re being disarmed as you speak.

what your saying is pretty much what I pleaded with donald trumps son to do 😊 Drone strikes with "glitches in the software" that happen to hit several key areas by accident assuming their "unwarrented" or not entirely legal 🤷‍♀️ Geo survey the area and send in tactical teams for tunnel destruction and key target eridication. …..or false flag them with the opioid epidemic which everybody could understand since it's not a hard sell to the American people and then you just need to manufacturer enough consent to do what's necessary. …..the interesting part is I did say If SOME… Read more »
