"Black Jack" Pershing in Mexico, Redux??

This will be interesting.

...In his interview with Trump, O’Reilly said, “One of the things that you’ve said to me … is that if another country murdered 100,000 Americans with guns, we would go to war with that country. Yet, the Mexican drug cartels kill more than 100,000 Americans every year by the importation of dangerous narcotics.

“Are you going to designate those cartels in Mexico as terror groups and start hitting them with drones and things like that?” O’Reilly asked.

“I don’t want to say what I am going to do, but they will be designated,” Trump answered. “I’ve already offered Mexico … to let us go in and clean it out and he so far has rejected the offer but at some point something has to be done. Look, we are losing 100,000 people a year to what is happening and what is coming through on Mexico.”

“So you are going to designate the Mexican cartels as terror groups?” O’Reilly continued to prod.
“Yeah, I will be,” Trump replied. “I have been working on that for the last 90 days. You know, designation is not that easy, you have to go through a process, and we are well into that process.”...
Yah, well, the President of Mexico isn't pleased with all this.  Maybe he wants to be the President of an officially-Failed State, or maybe the cartels have placed a horse's head on his bed (don't be surprised!), but he prefers that the US stay outta there.

We've been there before, of course, but this time it won't be with horses.   It's close to the 100th anniversary of that little scuffle, so we have an excuse for a party.
