I am a consultant and analyst with eight years of military law enforcement experience, six years of analytical experience covering Latin America, and over seven years of analytical experience covering Mexican TCOs and border violence issues. This blog is designed to inform readers about current border violence issues and provide analysis on those issues, as well as detailed focus on specific border topics. By applying my knowledge and experience through this blog, I hope to separate the wheat from the chaff...that is, dispel rumors propagated by sensationalist media reporting, explain in layman's terms what is going on with Mexican TCOs, and most importantly, WHY violence is happening along the US-Mexico border.

Does anyone in this investigation even consider that the "cartels" do not have to depend on the guns that trickle across our common border with Mexico for the majority of their supply? When the ATF, DOJ or Local Law enforcement are so ineffective at stopping the "northbound" flood of "illegal" drugs, why should they divert attention from that to the much smaller problems of GUNS going south? It seems to me that it is a blatant attempt to cover up the poor performance of those charged with assuring the security of our U.S. borders.

The beautiful tourist area of Cozumel has become a favorite drug distribution location for the DTOs. This demonstrates the ineffective policies of the Mexican government in dealing with their problem - the DTOs. The Mexican Government knows that the tourist dollars are extremely vital to their economy but seem to be powerless against the DTOs. The Cartels don't give a "----" if Mexico "burns to the ground"(sic) because they "have" theirs' and care less about the survival of their nation.

If Mexico cant handle the problem, why does it become OURS?
