Mexican Cartels Are Worse Than You Think
Today we’re going to analyze one of the world's most important partnerships that you probably never think about: Mexico and the United States. They share a nearly 2,000-mile border, which has led to the two nations having long-standing close trade, cultural, demographic ties. In 2018, trade between the two countries totaled $671 billion which is a lot of billions and makes Mexico the United States third-largest trading partner. We gave them Coca Cola.

But there is one big threat to this important partnership: the powerful Mexican Transnational criminal organizations, the Cartels. According to this US department of homeland security study on Bi-national criminal proceeds, Mexican cartels earn between $19 and 29 billion dollars each year. I think we are finally at a point where these Cartels should be defined as a commercial insurgency and major threat to US National security interests but maybe not in the ways you might think. In this video we’ll also analyze the reasons why bilateral cooperation between these two great nations has recently started falling apart and the steps we might be able to take to improve relations.
On January 6th 2023 the Mexican military sent 3,000 soldiers to capture El Chapo’s son Ovidio Guzman in the city of Culiacán. Gang members set fire to vehicles and used them as roadblocks while shooting 50 caliber sniper rifles at military and civilian aircraft, shutting down the local airport for the entire day. Mexican military helicopters rained down heavy machine gun fire onto the Sinaloa Cartel gang members. Ovidio Guzman was captured and sent to face justice in Mexico city, but it came at the cost of 10 brave Mexican soldiers who were KIA and an additional 35 injured. 19 enemy cartel members were taken out and 21 more were arrested according to Mexico’s defense minister Sandoval. Mexican cartels have expanded into a strategic regional security threat for the United States of America.
