Pancho Villa, the Reprise
Okay, now it's getting serious. It's one thing if Mexico can't control their own criminals, but the firing of bullets by feuding Mexican drug lords into El Paso government buildings requires nothing less than a swift, certain and severe military response from the United States akin to the Punitive Expedition to capture Pancho Villa who raided border towns early in the 20th century.
I'm not holding my breath. With this administration, it's far more likely we'll invite the Mexican government build a consulate adjacent to the Alamo. Or give the drug lords US citizenship.
