The best way, the only real viable way, to end all this is for the US to legalize cannabis and structure the importation so the cartels continue to have income as legitimate businesses. Stipulate to the cartels/importers that cannabis is the only product they are allowed to attempt to bring into this country,no meth,heroin,coke,etc. And if proven they are attempting to import banned goods they will be subject to sanctions or revocation of their ability to import, period.
Make it mandatory that they police themselves or they lose the right to do so and will be dealt with by the US military.
That's when we involve our military, doing so now is not going to do anything but cause another Vietnam right here on our border. There's way too much dinero involved.
