Mexico drug cartels

Yes, Mexico’s drug cartels count as terrorists

Ben Domench, New York Post

Trump has been inaccurately described by some of his critics as isolationist or antiwar. He is not, and he shouldn’t be understood ­under that lens. Trump cares the most about the foreign-policy issues that hit closest to home. After the success of the raid that killed ISIS honcho Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the president should understand the power of sending a message to our enemies: If you murder American women and children, wherever you are, wherever you hide, the most powerful military in the history of the world will hunt you down, find you and deliver swift justice to you. The choice for the Mexican government now is stark. It can govern Mexico, the cartels can govern Mexico or the United States can step in, in its own unique way, and do what Mexican elites won’t do.
