Written by Michael Ware

For the past decade, violence in Mexico has been severe and almost unabated.  Drug cartels own many officials and police corruption is rampant.  This can be directly and indirectly linked to the U.S./Columbian war on drugs.  As many of the Columbian cartels were arrested and or killed, their Mexican runners and contacts took over the business.  As the drug trade has moved north, so has the violence.  This violence has intensified to a level not seen with the Columbians, who were vicious in their own right.  Now, it seems that the Mexican government is seeking to get the violence and the drugs under control.

Fox reports

At least 43 people died Friday in what authorities described as a fierce, three-hour gun battle between federal forces and suspected drug gang gunmen on a ranch in western Mexico, the deadliest such confrontation in recent memory.

We should note that only one of the forty-three was a federal officer.  The one death was a result of the officer seeking to get a wounded officer to safety.  These results are very similar to the results of a shootout in June of last year.

Fox continued:

The lop-sided results were similar to a controversial case last June 30 in which Mexico’s army said its troops had engaged in a shootout with alleged criminals in which 22 suspects were killed but only one soldier injured. An investigation by The Associated Press revealed that many of suspects had been killed after they surrendered.

What seems apparent is that the Mexican people are tiring of this violence.  Much like the Columbians before them are now beginning to clamp down on the cartels, who have not exactly been quiet about who they were and their activity, this group has been violent toward the federal police.

Fox added:

In April, gunmen believed linked to the cartel ambushed a police convoy in Jalisco, killing 15 state officers and wounding five. Earlier this month, New Generation gunmen shot down a military helicopter with a rocket launcher in Jalisco, killing eight aboard.

Now, the concern for Americans is that as the cartels are stamped out in one area, they simply pop up somewhere else.  As with the Columbians and the destruction of Mexican cartels, we will likely see the emergence of someone else filling the need Americans have for drugs.  This likely will be an area not suspected.

Though America’s large cities are not strangers to gang violence, they have been immune to the type and intensity of the Mexican cartel.  One of the reasons for this is the simple facts of economics.  It is never good to shoot or maim your best customer base.  However, as Mexico cracks down, there is the great possibility that these murderers will carry their bases of operation to a state near you.

This may seem to be a longshot, but we must consider the ingredients needed for the cartel.  They need a society that is poor and in need of an influx of money.  They need a people devoid of the gospel and faith.  They need easy access to the buyers of their product.  And they need a society corrupt and in love with money and pleasure.  Does this sound familiar?
