Why Aren't Mexican Drug-Trafficking Cartels Designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations?

35,000 people, including judges, police officers, government officials, and innocent men, women and children have been brutally murdered by warring drug-trafficking cartels in Mexico, a country that is literally a stone's throw away from the U.S. border.  In fact, one former DEA officer said: 'I think they make al Qaeda look tame in terms of what they do.' Yet, despite close proximity, the horrific brutality, and the huge humanitarian issue presented, we hear next to nothing from the media, Homeland Security, nor, President Obama.  Moreover, Hilary Clinton has not even designated these brutal cartels,  Foreign Terrorist Organizations.  If she did,  U.S. banks would be required to block their assets. Furthermore, cartel members could not enter the U.S. nor, retain material support or resources from Americans.  So, what's the holdup? 

Well, of course, it's Americans’ insatiable appetite for illegal drugs that is fueling the Mexican "terrorists".  It has nothing to do with the billions of dollars that our government the banksters earn from providing laundering services for Mexico's murderous drug gangs.

Nevertheless, Rep. Michael McCaul "introduced legislation [H.R.1270] on Wednesday that would direct Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to designate Mexican drug cartels as Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTO) – a designation that would put them on the same list as al Qaeda, the Taliban and Hezbollah." 

Obviously, Rep. McCaul doesn't understand the "pursuit of profit at all costs" mentality of the inside-the-beltway crowd.

You and I must have been separated at birth, you think the same as me. You are spot on in your Med Union Libyan war analysis and now this, the drug wars and the drug narco soldiers are far more dangerous than the Jihadists and have killed thousands more in the USA that Islamic jihadists. The war on drugs is a failure because the governments are not taking this seriously. I believe that the drugs wars are perpetuated to continue the judicial industrial complex and the high rates of incarceration, drug bust money, criminal fines and a way for the Federal government to control the population.
I believe that ALL illegal drugs should be decriminalised and made legal and available via drug stores. But, this would mean a massive drop in crime overnight, a smaller police force, less government criminal justice and fewer people going to jails..."they" would never let this happen.
