Mexico Cartel Gang’s Battle On Border – 15 Killed

October 16, 2009

Military style blazing Gun battles erupting between rival factions of a Mexican drug cartel gangs have left at least 15 people dead in the city of Tijuana, near the border with the US.

Tijuana police said the dead men belonged to the Arellano Felix cartel drug gang which is coming under more pressure than ever from a rival gangs and the Mexican army. It was not clear if the killed were a result of Mexican military action or rival Mexican cartels were responsible.

Over 200 people So far this year have been killed in and around Tijuana.
Since taking office in late 2006 President Felipe Calderon about 30,000 soldiers and federal agents participated in the fight against the drug cartels.

The Arellano Felix cartel rose to prominence in the 1980s.
According to government sources, the Arellano Felix cartel millions of dollars in bribes to local law enforcement agencies and other senior officials have paid, and is responsible for the increase in violence made, including the killing ofinformants and rival traffickers.

Much of the group’s activities centers on smuggling Mexican weed, Colombian and Afghanistan cocaine and other drugs along with Illegal aliens through Mexico to California.

Failure of coordination in the battle against these Mexican cartels is felt by many to be one of the reasons why ordering troops into the border areas by the Mexican president have not been effective and curtailed the violence. According to Raúl Benítez Manaut of the Center for Investigations of the Mexican National University (UNAM) the agencies involved in the fight against narcotics traffic in Mexico lack effective coordination. In addition, there are major tactical deficiencies in carrying out the narcotics war because there is no analysis of operations to determine if they are winning or losing, but rather favor international cooperation to confront the problem. “There is much conflict between the federal agencies,” he said in pointing out that In Mexico there is no bureaucratic tradition of the president or a mechanism for the coordination of joint actions. He explained that although President Felipe Calderón has tried to address the lack of coordination, building on a strong presidency, "which differs from that of Vicente Fox to do the all of what" it requires an explicit order to coordinate departments to allow .
Calling the U.S. ambassador to Mexico, Tony Garza, "paranoid", businessmen in Reynosa, Tamaulipas decried the labelof the border area as unsafe, leading to an official U.S. travel warning for tourists. The angry words, free with the term "Gringo", said the merchants their side of the border was no less safe than the U.S. side. They also argue that the presence of army and police patrols insurance, "should give gringo tourists."
