    You all have heard about the terror plot, in case you have not I have linked it here.

    U.S. Says Iran-Tied Terror Plot in Washington, D.C. Disrupted - Yahoo! News

    Now, Some say that the Mexican drug cartels should be designated as terrorist organizations, and prosecuted as such. What are the thoughts of you all on this ? What will it mean for the paltry stance of our current crop if Republican candidates on illegal immigration, and NAFTA ? Would Mexico tolerate predator strikes in Juarez, Tijuana and Nogalas ? And what about the tentacles of thees gangs that have stretched into our city's ? Will we see Navy SEALS raiding crack houses and meth labs ? If you buy an ounce of weed from a member of MS-13 what does that mean for you ?

    Yes they are terrorists.

    They use violence to try and affect people's behavior and coerce them into allowing the drug cartels to do anything they want.

    They are certainly terrorists in mexico where the intent is to replace the government. Right now they are only "for hire" in the US without an agenda of their own.

    No, the cartels. Should they go on the list with Al Qaeda? As for Holder and his bunch, that's another story.

    It would make things easier but the first time we drone strike a druglord in Mexico I don't think the Mexican govt. will be pleased.

    If we talk to mexico first about it and come to some agreement where they aren't mad, we can act, and we can accomplish both without compromising the effectiveness of such a policy then sure.

    we will be targeting Mexican drug lords with drones sooner than you think. And I think the use will spread across the globe and it will occur with tacit agreement of the governments and in some instances without it. Drone strikes are seen differently than aircraft strikes and not as provocative.

    However you will never ... hmm never say never. The probability of drone strikes in the US are almost zero. The Military has to abide by Posse Comitatus (which has been diluted to the point where they can be used in drug interdiction[see http://www.homelandsecurity.org/journal/articles/trebilcock.htm]) and the CIA is not supposed to operate here. The constitutional issues of assassinating people on American soil will probably keep drone strikes out of the US.
