    A family was brutally killed in Mexico, but sending U.S. troops to fight won't help
    “The United States stands ready, willing & able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively,” Trump tweeted Tuesday. “The great new President of Mexico has made this a big issue, but the cartels have become so large and powerful that you sometimes need an army to defeat an army!”

    That offer makes perfect sense in response to the cowardly attack that left three mothers and their young children dead in Sonora state. The victims were members of La Mora, a decades-old settlement founded as part of an offshoot of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The sight of the bullet-razed, burned vehicle that was one in a caravan is a chilling and horrifying testament of Mexico’s violent streak.

    But you’d have to be darn naive to think Mexico will take the offer or willingly let the United States invade its territory to wipe out the drug cartels. That idea is just unthinkable for Mexicans who’ve long endured the power — and often the bullying and the humiliation — of the United States.
