The “collateral deaths” of civilians will continue WHETHER OR NOT the army is back in their barracks.

The army is not the sole source of “collateral deaths”. To bring collateral deaths of civilians to zero (with regards to the “drug war”), the “war” will need to end.

It doesn’t matter who is enforcing the prohibitionist laws, whether the army, federal, state or local police, civilians will always be caught in the crossfire because they cannot be 100% distinguished from the narcos and mistakes always happen.
