Shorter Rick Perry: I Will Model My Foreign Policy in Mexico after Jack Pershing’s Campaign against Villa”
Gov. Rick Perry of Texas said on Saturday that as president, he would consider sending American troops into Mexico to help defeat drug cartels and improve border security. He indicated that any such action would be done “in concert” with the Mexican government.
“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 and to destroy their network,” Mr. Perry said during a campaign appearance here.
Yes, I’m sure the Mexican government will be ecstatic to see American troops on its soil. Moreover, I’m even more sure that decapitated American troops dumped on the side of a Mexican road will find a great deal of support among the American public.
