“How To INVITE A Military Coup”

Posted July 2nd, 2019 by Iron Mike

…by Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador
Step #1:  Create a new National Guard – allegedly to help fight the drug cartels.

Step #2:  Tell the media you plan to DISBAND the Mexican Military – because Mexico will now be a pacifist nation….

Step #3:  “Reform” the Constitution – to be “approved by the People” in 2019.

What Obrador cannot bear to tell his long-suffering population is that Mexico has been a failed state for over 100 years, and the rise of the drug cartels in these past 30 years is only a symptom of the wide-spread national corruption which is Mexico.

Now, for as long as most Mexican adults can remember,  the cartels have ruled the land by fear and intimidation,  murdering at will, – and all too often the local police departments are merely their uniformed executioners.

Creating a National Guard was a good idea – long overdue.

Threatening to disband the Army,…is exactly the kind of idea which could lead to a coup.

Obrador is trying a number of liberal programs and theories,  trying to bring order to a land that has never known it in modern times.  We can only wish him good luck.

But until BOTH Mexico and the USA are routinely executing drug traffickers,  – don’t expect much more than continued political corruption and ongoing wholesale murders – on both sides of the border.

    Applaud his intentions but the means proposed may well lead to a coup. God help the Mexican people, for the most part good Christian folks.

    Mexico needs to legalize gun ownership for its citizenry. Otherwise, the population are just peasants, to be slaughtered or ruled by criminal cartels. Being able to defend yourself is called freedom.

    Obrador should have been shot instead of elected.

    Barring that success, Mexico’s worst times are to come soon enough.
