The scenes that took place earlier this week on a highway in Northern Mexico, are unbelievable. Killer for a drug cartel feeder food for several vehicles, in which women and children are on the move, family members of Mormons, human rights activist, and agricultural entrepreneur Julian Le Barón. Six children and three women are shot to death or burned alive, as a vehicle goes up in flames. It is unclear whether Le Barón previously against the domination of organized crime has been rejected. Or if the killers believed, erroneously, in the vehicles of the members of a rival grouping, was accused of conspiracy.
in mid-October, the forces of law and Order, Ovidio Guzmán's capture, one son of the drug Lord Chapo Guzmán. As a result, the cartel of Sinaloa in Culiacan, the capital of the Federal state, hundreds of armed Criminals were on stage. They provide hours of long battles with the army, take 20?Soldiers as hostages and threaten to blow up the Cathedral of the city in the air. To stop the escalation, leave the authorities the young Guzmán free again. A greater shame for Mexico's army and the government of left-wing President, Andrés Manuel López Obrador is hard to imagine. A few days earlier, 13 were police officers in the state of Michoacán in an ambush and been shot.
The members of the national guard are paid better than previous units. But they are also the proof that López Obrador followed basically the same course as previous governments.
That López Obrador would succeed, the war on drugs, this for more than ten years of furious carnage to finish in a short time, was a dream. But the murder rate since he took office last December, to 6 per cent, is increased, and the situation is worse than ever – the undermine López Obrador's Reputation, also internationally. Because the murdered mothers and children of the family Le Barón Mexican-were American dual citizens, has Donald Trump offered to the southern neighbouring country of a U.S. military intervention. The sounds in Mexican ears like a threat. López Obrador has rejected the offer politely, but firmly.
in Mexico the head of government stressed, to blame for the drug war, the failed Confrontation policy of his two predecessors had. He is right, but loses the Argument with each murder Conviction. Irritating is that López Obrador has so far failed to develop a separate, reasonably coherent strategy against organised crime. During the election campaign he had promised "abrazos, no balazos," hugs instead of shootings. Violence should not fight with violence, the crime will decrease when the population thanks to new social programs. This is just an Illusion.
According to his power, indeed, López Obrador commencement of the same, and what has already been tried several times unsuccessfully: He created a new Police force. The members of the national guard are paid better and are supposedly better trained than previous units. But they are also the proof that López Obrador followed basically the same course as previous governments. And then he had to lay under trump's pressure, yet a third of the new forces of law and order on the southern border, in order to intercept illegal immigrants from Central America.
The great liberation was a rash promise
The promising, yet complex and little audience effective strategy, the financial flows of the drug mafia to grow dry, has been implemented by Mexico's government, so far, only hesitant. Again and again, López Obrador suggests, moreover, that organised crime is a pragmatic, perhaps, unavoidable, but the rule of law and sensitive measure to negotiate. How far is the willingness to negotiate by the President, is still vague.
it is Significant that López has said Obrador recently in his first speech to the Nation, the fight against the cartels is the biggest challenge of his six-year term – to lose then hardly another word about it. In the face of Evil, for there is perhaps none, and certainly not a quick solution, it was foolish to promise the great liberation. It is only the policy of small steps. But they should all run in the same direction and to the population free of contradiction be explained. Because López Obrador has failed so far, and thus his presidency is doomed to failure.
