Governor Rick Perry Says US Military May Be Involved in Mexican Drug War

In comments made today during campaign stops in New Hampshire, Texas Governor and Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry said that he would consider having the US military play a more concentrated role in fighting the Mexican drug war, which has caused over 40,000 deaths since Mexican President Felipe Calderón and his administration began to confront the country's narcoterrorists six years ago.

As reported by ABC NEWS:


“The way that we were able to stop the drug cartels in Colombia was with a coordinated effort,” Perry said. “It may require our military in Mexico working in concert with them to kill these drug cartels and to keep them off of our border and to destroy their networks. I don’t know all the scenarios that are out there but I think it is very important that we work with them, to keep that country from failing.”
