I am a consultant and analyst with eight years of military law enforcement experience, six years of analytical experience covering Latin America, and over seven years of analytical experience covering Mexican TCOs and border violence issues. This blog is designed to inform readers about current border violence issues and provide analysis on those issues, as well as detailed focus on specific border topics. By applying my knowledge and experience through this blog, I hope to separate the wheat from the chaff...that is, dispel rumors propagated by sensationalist media reporting, explain in layman's terms what is going on with Mexican TCOs, and most importantly, WHY violence is happening along the US-Mexico border.

Excellent analysis. Your view that the battle is expanding is spot on. The body count is soaring as the VCFO is now fighting both the Sinaloa cartel and Mexican federal government forces whom they believe have formed an alliance. It is very sobering to think that if Mexico ever reaches a true failed state status the near total breakdown of law and order and civil society in Juarez would be repeated throughout the country

Gerardo ... your feedback is good because there is definitely the impression that Sinaloa and top Army generals (and federal officials) are working together.

But I think there is another grave danger. Really it has to do with the depths of the human psyche. The cartels have created an atmosphere of terror and hopelessness in Juarez which goes beyond the bounds of normal criminals. Juarez is becoming more than just a failed city ... it is becoming a breeding ground for pure evil. There is a great danger that if this evil is not brought under control, it will spread more broadly into Mexico, Central America, and the USA.
