Thousands of Mexican soldiers pour into the country's most violent city in crackdown on drug gangs

Armed to the hilt, they came from land and air, determined to restore order to Mexico's most violent city.

Nearly 2,000 Mexican soldiers and armed federal police poured into the border town of Ciudad Juarez last weekend.

The city - just across from El Paso in Texas - has been ravaged by drug gangs. Just this month 250 people were killed there by hitmen fighting for lucrative smuggling routes.

Between federal police and Mexican Army soldiers up to 2,000 law enforcement officers swarmed the streets of Juarez over the weekend to join the 2,500 already there - and there are more to come

The soldiers' mandate is clear - and ambitious.

'This is to reinforce the operation in general ... to eradicate kidnappings, extortion, assaults and homicide,' army spokesman Enrique Torres said.

The soldiers are the first contingent of as many as 5,000 troops and federal police being sent to Juarez.

Almost 2,500 soldiers and federal police have been there for nearly a year, but they have failed to curb the violence plaguing the city of about 1.6 million people.

President Felipe Calderon's military operation is supported by the United States, which is concerned the violence could destabilize Mexico, a key trading partner, and spill over the border.

Mexico has deployed some 45,000 troops across the country to try to crush drug gangs, but clashes between rival cartels and security forces killed around 6,000 people last year.

It's about time the Mexican government does something about this. Now they need to rid the government itself of the corruption that allows these things to get out of hand.

What we need to do is set up the border as one long rifle and pistol range with Mexico as the back stop. The .gov should provide ammo under the Civilian Marksmanship program.

On a side note: I ran a few wetbacks off a job site a few days back. They'd been leaving trash in the area and I went there and badged the assholes and asked for ID. They scrambled like rats.

Technically I'm not supposed to enforce immigration laws, but I observed an empty bottle of Tecate on the ground and suspected there might be some public intoxication or an open container violation. Smile

The builder should be hiring Americans or Legal Immigrants anyway.

The article conveniently leaves out the fact that the past few months have seen a huge increase in weapons sales in the US and that many of these are being re-sold to the Mexican drug gangs. Just a bunch of right wing business men making a profit of the death and misery of others.
