The ISIS and Mexican Drug Cartel Collaboration

Some might dismiss this as just nonsense, that the Mexican drug cartel groups would embrace ISIS members that indirectly support their terrorist actions. But think again. The drug cartels are all about money from drug smuggling into the USA. They easily are terrorists to most Mexican people who live these war zones where cartels fight each other and the federal police.

ISIS members can easily mix with the Hispanic race, much better than any anglo could, but that aside, ISIS has so much money for terrorist activities. The drug cartels can make millions from just helping ISIS members build their underground tunnels into the USA, The cartels have a direct connection and friendship with Hamas in Gaza. Captured documents by the Israelis show this. Now, they have discovered a connection to ISIS, a mutual benefit enterprise. The cartel connection with Hamas was providing with drugs to sell in Gaza smuggled into the area from the underground tunnels from the Sinai. ISIS would be no different but more sinister is their overwhelming desire to attack the USA.

This is nothing new in history, just look at the 1990's when the Colombian terrorist organizations the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and the Army of National Liberation (ELN), began to cooperate with the Colombian drug smuggling gangs by offering them protection in exchange for drug sale proceeds.

For ISIS, they could buy their way across the US border using the best tunnels the cartels have on a "leased" basis. The drug cartels reap a hefty amount of money simply by allowing ISIS to use them for a bit to smuggle their men into the USA. The drug cartels are no friends of the US Border patrol nor the Mexican Federal Police. ISIS members could be trained how to build tunnels like Hamas was and the two organizations could work together to facilitate drug smuggling and split profits, which would be another source of ISIS income.

The good thing we know ISIS is in Juarez. But that IS the only good thing.

Just because nothing has happened does not mean the logic is moot. There was the same discussion about the 9\11 and everyone thought it could not happen. Obama greatly underestimated ISIS despite receiving intel telling him otherwise. Even a few of ISIS members in Juarez may indicate they are having discussions with cartel members. Better to be safe than sorry

Using the drug cartel tunnels, they could smuggle more than just men into the United States. Those tunnels tend to be large enough for shipments of drugs to get through. Some have even had rails for carts to roll on. They could bring in plenty of weapons of various sizes plus components for a dirty bomb or even a nuke.
