Recently, I spoke with CBC’s “The National” regarding the escalating drug war along the U.S.-Mexico border. While it has not reached such a grave point yet, Mexico could realistically become a failed nacro-state if it does not get control of the violence in its country. The United States, for its own security, should help.
Check out the special report:
When police cracked down on Tijuana’s Arellano Felix cartel, it unleashed a violent turf war between upstart drug gangs that neither the police nor the military can control.
