The Terror at America’s Southern Gate

Listen to this article

As Western states weaken, both internally and in their foreign policy, we will increasingly have to come to terms with the fact that there are various and ever growing groups and actors that are geographically close enough to confront White nations in an open war, and furthermore, they are preparing to do so. One of those threats are the infamous Mexican Drug Cartels. As a Criolo, a member of the approximately 28 million people that can be considered fully or almost fully descended of European settlers in the cursed land of Mexico, I shall try my best to bring some light into the matter for this audience.

First let’s examine the cartels, much has been written about them, and you probably read about their evildoings, murders and racketeering very often in the news. Thus you might have asked yourself more than once: Why was the Mexican government unable to stop them from forming their complex criminal network and why is it powerless to disrupt it today?

This is because a lot of the arguments used for open borders in North America come from using the economic destitution and violence that the activities of the cartels cause as a shield against resistance. We can’t turn Pedro away at the border because if he remains in Mexico, he’ll be poor (because the cartels plundered his town) or simply murdered by the cartels. This is not even mentioning that the Cartels themselves use open border policies to move money, merchandise and manpower, becoming thus a direct threat to the North American population.

You might be inclined to think it’s a matter of sheer power and no one could blame you for holding such an idea. In the end these cartels are better funded than most state militaries worldwide given the sheer amounts of money the international drug trade injects into them.

Mexican authorities do not seem eager to address the cartel problem, especially under the current leftist government of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (sometimes known as AMLO). The government openly follows a policy of ‘Hugs not shots,’ a term coined for allowing criminals to operate freely. This policy is brutally enforced against military personnel who attempt to carry out their duties. Unfortunately, this situation leads to the actual boots on the ground being at a cartoonish disadvantage when trying to fight, most of them choose to just sit back rather than fire back. Coalition military personnel who served in Afghanistan can certainly relate.

This level of non-answer from the Mexican Military cascades into a governance disaster, where the cartels now have 175,000 people directly working for them, not counting indirect participation, and they control the majority of the territory of several states, to the extent that they can just threaten or murder online personalities  who dare enter their state after social media comments.

But, to your suprise, the issue is not caused by the great strength of the cartels, but merely by the legal system and the political lack of will to change it in order to bring actual victory against the cartels. Any serious government action would put an end to the cartels’ operations, albeit after an extremely bloody start.

We used to only have the example of Nayib Bukele’s actions in El Salvador, but now we have two examples of Latin American countries managing to curb Cartel violence and proliferation just by the simple action of unleashing the police and military. The second would be Ecuador, where even gun laws, notoriously stringent in Latin America, were liberalized overnight in order to deploy hordes of armed civilians as volunteers in the hunt for cartel and gang members. In states of exception such as in these two examples of El Salvador and Ecuador, organized crime initially starts wreaking absolute havoc. In the case of Eduardor, they even raided a TV Station and some universities, but these locations were shortly after liberated and the gunmen involved have been arrested.

The case of Mexico is much more similar to the one of Ecuador, where the criminals have semi-militarized structures, are better armed and have more access to tech and infrastructure, but even then a total crackdown by the Armed forces, which would also be assisted by a mass of willing civilians that are just waiting to be able to arm themselves to take direct action (such an instance of mildly armed citizenry successfully repealing a very large and organized extortion attempt by a Cartel has happened very recently). These citizens often cannot take up arms against the cartels due to the fact that the current Leftist government would heavily crack down on them instead of the criminals; for example, Mexico’s strict gun laws make it exceptionally expensive to legally own firearms, which leads to civilians that would otherwise defend themselves and their property to never have such an opportunity or have to make do with old, basic hunting rifles.

How does this relate to us and our cause? It’s no secret that cartel violence has already spread into American communities and has already started taking its toll on the freedom and livelihoods of Americans. So we always have to seek out what works in order to defend against this menace, and this whole article is with the intention of telling you that this monster is by no means invincible. However, this doesn’t mean that it should be underestimated, and as with the Islamic fifth column in Western Europe, they live just around the corner from North American civilians. With such a menace, we must keep in mind that any serious move by someone sympathetic to our ideals must include sound positions of total crackdown on the cartels, either by Mexican authorities that would first have to be taken over by people not sympathetic to global communism and worldwide decolonialism, or directly by US Forces in a military intervention against the cartels, after designating them as terrorist groups, and with the assistance of armed civilian groups on both sides of the border.
