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.


With over a dozen years of combined experience in military law enforcement, force protection analysis, and writing a variety of professional products for the US Air Force, state government in California, and the general public, Ms. Longmire has the expertise to create a superior product for you or your agency to further your understanding of Mexico’s drug war. Longmire Consulting is dedicated to being on the cusp of the latest developments in Mexico in order to bring you the best possible analysis of threats posed by the drug violence south of the border.

Would his death make a difference? The zeta's seem pretty networked based as opposed to the semi-heirarchy's of the other cartels. Do they have a built in resiliancy from thing like this?

In my opinion you are not stressing the origin of the problem: our (Canadian and USA) demand for illegal drugs produced south of the Rio Grande, in Mexico and all the way south to Colombia and Bolivia. I live in Ottawa, Canada, and I am the son of a Canadian father and a Mexican mother. I have lived approximately half of my live in one country and half in the other, I consider myself proficient in both cultures and can give an accurate account. Lets not full ourselves, WE are the cause of whichever misfortune comes this way.

The real issue is NAFTA. Get rid of NAFTA, get rid of the cartels.
