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.


With over a dozen years of combined experience in military law enforcement, force protection analysis, and writing a variety of professional products for the US Air Force, state government in California, and the general public, Ms. Longmire has the expertise to create a superior product for you or your agency to further your understanding of Mexico’s drug war. Longmire Consulting is dedicated to being on the cusp of the latest developments in Mexico in order to bring you the best possible analysis of threats posed by the drug violence south of the border.

Most cartels do replace their local leaders right away. However I believe that CDG is on the way out, surrounded by Federal Forces and Zetas all over, they have nowhere else to go.

In your interview you also mentioned how zetas are recruiting very young teenagers who are not as efficient as the original zetas, who were grown up men with military training most of them.

In general I'd say that these are signs that the Mexican government has the upper hand on this war on drugs.

The Army and the Federal Police are shooting down drug cartel operators every single day across the country. We should begin to see some results soon.
