Drug War Politics: Rick Perry Says Drug War ‘May Require Our Military in Mexico’
ABC News: "Texas Gov. Rick Perry spent today campaigning in New Hampshire, hammering away at his message that “over-taxation, over-regulation, and over-litigation” are hurting business and the U.S. economy, but he also advocated for a larger government role in the war on drugs."
At a house party in Manchester, Perry said that ending the drug war in Mexico "may require our military in Mexico." "The way we were able to stop the drug cartels in Colombia was with a coordinated effort," Perry said. "It may require our military in Mexico working in concert with them to kill these drug cartels and to keep them off our border and destroy their networks."
