Mexico's Drug War

Katel, Peter. "Mexico's Future: Can the country's new president stop the drug cartels?." CQ Researcher 26 Oct. 2012. Following years of grisly drug-related violence, Mexico's next president, Enrique Peña Nieto, is hinting that he will adopt a new anti-crime strategy when he takes office Dec. 1. Instead of using a military-style offensive to kill or capture the leaders of Mexico's drug cartels
— the approach of outgoing president Felipe Calderón — Peña Nieto has suggested that he will focus on protecting civilians from crimes committed by cartel underlings and their allies in Mexico's security forces. The cartels pose strategic and political risks for both Mexico and the United States. Drug violence has raised tensions along the U.S.-Mexico border and complicated Mexico's trade relationships with the United States. At the same time, Mexico complains that the cartels are using guns smuggled from the United States and are supported by American appetites for illegal narcotics. From the CQ Researcher.
