AMLO Shows Some Spine

I suspect they probably will reinvent themselves, and to some extent seem to be doing it with the “protection” businesses they are running. While I will freely admit that the USA’s drug policy has lead to the cartel situation in Mexico, I think it is extremely unlikely that the drug policy in the USA will change anytime soon. To me, the real question is what Mexico will do to improve law enforcement to mitigate the influence of the cartels.

Mexico's already stretched its law enforcement abilities about as far as it can. Nothing is going to improve as long as hundreds of billions of narcodollars keep flowing south along with the weapons to protect the interests of violent organized criminals, and the longer this stupidity continues of doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result, the harder it's going to be to deal with the organized criminals in the future, as compared to the several decades it took the U.S. federal government to get a handle on the mafias that grew out of prohibition 1.0 even after alcohol was made legal again.
