At best, Mexico is a failed state. At worst, it is a rogue state, hostile to regional peace. The silence from politicians who would have otherwise cried intervention speaks volumes.
It’s time to overhaul the U.S. national security establishment. No subjects of failed policy are more evident than Afghanistan and our southern border.
If Trump is serious about his call to change course on military intervention, he should actually bring troops home — and if he’s concerned about pushback, Yemen is the perfect place to start.
