President Donald Trump’s success in decapitating ISIS in Southwest Asia, followed from his bold decision to withdraw American troops from Syria and use international cooperation against drug-running, human-trafficking terrorists. He has here fought terrorism while helping stabilize Syria, rather than breaking up national governments and creating terrorism, as previous Presidents did.

Now for a clear and obviously necessary next step: Cooperate with Mexico to defeat the drug- and gun-running and human-trafficking terrorists threatening to take over that country. The opening is already created.

The LaRouche Citizens Movement of Mexico, MOCILA, issued an open letter to Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) on Oct. 25, 2019. The letter followed the drug cartels’ virtual military takeover of the city of Culiacan on Oct. 17. Entitled, “Four Measures To Defeat Dope, Inc.’s Takeover of Mexico,” the open letter from MOCILA reads:

“It is often the case in history that forces representing evil policies are blinded by their own hubris, and think they can impose their will on entire nations by brute force and terror tactics. But their very arrogance exposes their own Achilles’ heel, and can lead to their destruction at the hands of their intended victims, if the latter counterattack vigorously on the exposed weak flank.

“Last week’s show of force by Dope, Inc., the international drug cartel run out of the City of London and Wall Street banks, around the Ovidio Guzmán case, presents just such an opportunity.

“In the same spirit in which we issued an ‘Open Letter to AMLO’ back in September 2018 before you took office, the LaRouche movement today—based on the established authority of the late Lyndon LaRouche in these matters—urges you to adopt four concrete measures which will take Dope, Inc.’s tactical victory in the Ovidio Guzmán case, and turn it into their strategic defeat.

“1) Immediately fire your Government Minister Olga Sánchez Cordero, who is a leading proponent of Dope, Inc.’s policy of drug legalization, and a Trojan horse inside your government.

“2) Aggressively pursue the policy you have already initiated, of cooperation with the Trump Administration to freeze or hermetically seal the U.S.-Mexico border to both arms flows south and drug flows north, by using advanced technologies including laser detection, MRI, X-rays and more. This is a key component of LaRouche’s long-standing anti-drug plan.

“3) Expand such international cooperation by negotiating an agreement with China to cooperate on 100% stopping the flow of fentanyl into Mexico, and especially the state of Sinaloa, from where it is increasingly being cut to lower concentrations for transshipment to the United States. This will establish effective triangular cooperation among Mexico, China, and the United States, since China and the United States have already reached a significant bilateral agreement to stop the fentanyl scourge.

“4) Propose further triangular cooperation among Mexico, China, and United States, to bring major infrastructure and other development projects to Mexico and Central America, in the context of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) which now includes 157 nations worldwide. Only by providing such opportunities for productive employment for the region’s youth, can they be freed from enslavement to the drug trade and its terrorist gangs, and from the desperate need to migrate to the United States to ensure simple survival for themselves and their families.

“Such a global paradigm shift toward the BRI would also entail the bankruptcy re-organization of the entire trans- Atlantic financial system, which is the driving force of the international drug trade, and in any event is heading towards a blowout of its $1.5 quadrillion speculative bubble, which will make the 2008 crisis look like a picnic in comparison.
