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.

The strategy has to start by taking down the high-profile drug lords. Atomization of the drug gangs is good for Mexico, as it makes it possible for smaller governments, municipal and state governments, to take the fight to them locally.
Before, when the drug lords reined, the state governors and municipal presidents were afraid of them, not so much anymore.

The violence comes from the cartels killing each other, in many ways it is even positive for Mexico as we get rid of a lot of drug dealers and gangsters that our judicial system is incapable to arrest and process appropriately. The violence will come down eventually, it has already come down in cities like Tijuana and others that used to make every day headlines because of their violence.
The fight is now going south too, Edo. de Mexico in central Mexico, Veracruz and other states are now.

"Divide and Conquer"--it has worked throughout the centuries and will work here too.
