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.

Thank you Sylvia for clearing up some of this mess. It is like trying to track a NACAR race to see who is in the lead after how many laps, very confusing but there does not seem to be any abatement in the violence anywhere. It looks like Calderon gets one step ahead in the fight in one area and the cartels get two steps ahead in another area. I still fear for the lives of my friends living in Mexico.

Could you comment on the resiliency of the Zetas? Is there something about their structure or mode of operating that makes them less susceptible to arrests and killings of their leadership? Looks like they are everywhere and I read on borderland beat that they successfully recruited some Kabiles to do some hits in the Yucatan.
