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.

So, what's about the carrillo fuentes organisation today ? With the recents captures of top bosses , can we see a lose of influence ?

@Maun - The VCFO took a really big hit when the head of La Linea, Jose "El Diego" Antonio Acosta, was arrested. La Linea is critical to the TCO's survival in the hostile environment of Ciudad Juárez, and the Sinaloa Federation's strategy for several years has been to dismantle La Linea as a way to take over operations in the city. The VCFO is still around and operating, don't get me wrong. But I think they're having a hard time recovering.

And with the recent alliance with the zetas , is it possible that zetas take over the VCFO ?

The United states sending more money to the Military is stupid all they are doing is traning the military for the Cartel. If there is no replacement for the drugs, then the US can't expect drug trafficing to stop.

This looks very crazy.
