Military force won’t deter drug cartels

Freedom New Mexico

Mexican President Felipe Calderon has promised to send more than 2,500 additional military troops to his northeast border to deal with the growing violence right across from the Rio Grande Valley.

Calderon said last month that he would deploy four more battalions, each with about 650 troops, to Mexico’s northeast border. He and other officials also checked out new armored vehicles and other equipment that the military will use in their war against the various drug cartels that are battling them and each other for access to the lucrative illicit drug market in the United States.

We don’t know if the new deployment was planned before the Feb. 15 attack in San Luis Potos
