Video: Arizona Sheriff, American Patriot Paul Babeu wants Mexican Drug Cartels labeled 'Terrorists'

Hard to argue with Paul Babeu on this one but a Democrat Judge in El Paso, TX does anyway. To understand this argument, one has to clearly define what a 'terrorist' is. Sheriff Babeu sets a pretty simple standard; if you cut off the head of a police officer in Mexico and then lay the body in front of the police station, that's terrorism. Conversely, go figure, Judge Veronica Escobar (D) would rather not go to such lengths because, well, 'Americans are fueling (the drug) war.'

Via CNS News:
Washington ( – The federal government should designate Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations under U.S. law, according to the Republican sheriff of an Arizona county near the U.S.-Mexico border.

But a Democratic judge in Texas disagrees, saying such a designation would achieve little. Instead, said the judge, attention should be focused on illegal drug consumption by Americans.

Asked by whether he would support designating Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations (FTOs) – as some lawmakers are suggesting as a way to target their finances – Sheriff Paul Babeu of Pinal County, Ariz. replied, “Absolutely.”

“They are terrorists,” said Babeu, a Republican elected official. “Literally 35,000 people have been brutally murdered in Mexico. The president just articulated we went and bombed Libya because we didn’t want possibly 1,000 civilians just killed – it would have been blood on our hands.”

“Wait a minute,” he continued. “That’s half way around the world. Look south –35,000 people killed and they’re not just regular people [but] judges, police chiefs, you know, anybody who stands up in their way.”
Here's the video of both Babeu and Escobar. Based on Escobar's logic, I wonder if she'd be in the camp of blaming the Qur'an burning pastor for Afghanistanis murdering people who had nothing to do with it.
