In an attempt to burnish his “I hate Mexicans, honest!” credentials, Rick Perry suggests sending the U.S. military into Mexico in an escalation of the drug war:
Rick Perry signaled Saturday he would be open to sending U.S. troops into Mexico to combat drug cartels should the situation arise.
After speaking at a house party in Manchester, the Texas governor was asked a series of questions about the border and his stance on illegal immigration.
He said the leaders of Mexico and the U.S. should meet after next year’s elections to address the deadly drug trade in that country.
“It may require our military in Mexico working in concert with them to kill these drug cartels and to keep them off of our border,” Perry said.
What, not loud enough?
