The chart itself is an admission that we knew that we were running up a body count in a foreign nation. Are we fighting a undeclared war against Mexico with drug lords as our weapon of choice?
I hope not but the circumstances seem to fit the idea. How or why this isn’t front page on every paper in the nation is beyond me. This could easily be seen as an act of war and if the situation were reversed I think our nation would see it as a declaration of war.
I didn’t realize the ATF and the DOJ had the power to declare war on their own...
Im not an expert on international law or any law but this may fall under the title of "Belligerent Nation" or a similar heading under the Geneva Convention.
