You seriously overestimate the batshit insanity of the violence perpetrated by the US, I guess its easier than viewing it as a cold blooded, logical plan to protect its interests
I think you may be confusing logistics with logic. For example, a lot of our state-sponsored violence is causing perpetual blowback and endangering US citizens. The only interests that usually get protected or enhanced is those of these guys for the most part.
In other words, a lot of batshit insanity is carried out with cold blooded, logistical precision. History is rife with examples.
No way is the US going to drop bombs anywhere near its shores in the next 5 years. it still hasn't finished building its police state.
I don't know where you picked up 5 years from, not from me.
As far as the US needing to amorphously "finish" its police state (whatever that entails), I don't see anything like that currently preventing worldwide drone attacks nor incursions into Mexico and South America. The military-industrial complex is quite adept at multi-tasking.
It would appear you aren't aware that we're already there. The leaked Stratfor documents (along with other strong confirmations) show that we've already got U.S. special operations forces in Mexico as we speak.
We've also already been meddling in Mexico in recent years and making many of the worst fears of the Mexican public come true. For example, training Mexican Marines in areas where the cartels are strong has created a situation where they're contaminated and, by proxy, creating highly trained Zetas, etc.
That's why you see desperation growing with vigilantes, etc.
Of course, the solution to most of this mayhem is obvious. Decriminalize fucking drugs in the USA. But, it's vastly more profitable for the powers that be to protect the status quo and keep creating one's own "profitable problems", so to speak.
you might be viewing these signs as an incursion of the cartels into US soil, a bit late for that.
I think it's a bit premature on your part to assume I'm not aware of cartel incursions. It's very well-documented and very insidious. Including situations like this:
U.S. soldiers accepting cash, drugs for Mexican drug cartel contract hits
And, of course, everyone knows their soldiers and drugs are here in the USA.
But, it's one thing to quietly mule drugs here and carry out executions of their competition on our soil, yet quite another to start advertising on billboards with representations of hanged bodies on them demanding that United States at large submits to them in fear.
Maybe the public put up with this shit in Mexico:
But, that's just going to piss off the American public on a visceral level and offer yet more excuses for some bloodthirsty American politicians to happily quench their blood-lust thirst and make their masters more big bucks in the process by ramping up profitable mayhem in Central and South America.
Like I said, if these billboards in Texas are really made from drug lords and it gets tied to them, they've seriously overplayed their hands. And, as I've suggested earlier, there may even be some American "wet work" specialist soldiers who are paid off by the cartels to hunt down whomever pulled this boneheaded billboard marketing maneuver. It's just bad business.
