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.

Good review, have you read the Stratfor comments yet? I think you are more on point as always. Good post.

Hmm...Maybe a very huge surge of violence is possible to determine who of the top zetas will be in charge , maybe Nuevo Laredo will become a new Juarez , the CDG may put incursion in their territories

Your analysis is stale and general. You've been writing the same generalized, name-dropping blog posts masquerading as analysis for several years, built off all the same ideas and assumptions. Your posts are unnuanced, don't look at larger issues, and you report what people can read literally anywhere else. You are the New York Post of drug war reporters. Congrats on making your nut on the book.
