Nothing will work unless the supply of guns going into Mexico from the U.S. and the supply of drugs coming into the U.S. are reduced dramatically. Hillary is right. It is the U.S. craving of drugs that fuels the cartels.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Thursday that Mexico and the United States had agreed to develop a "checklist" of tasks for both sides to intensify the fight against Mexican drug gangs engaged in a bloody turf war.
Speaking near the end of a two-day visit, Clinton said the list would include timelines committing the United States to speed up delivery of drug-fighting aid and getting Mexico to move faster on reforming its judicial and law enforcement institutions.
[...]More than 7,000 people have been killed since January 2008 in attacks by traffickers on their competitors and security forces.
Clinton called on Mexicans to support their government's fight against the gangs and urged students to use the Internet to send tips on illegal activity to authorities.
