Doubts cloud Mexico's war on drugs

Effectiveness of military in fighting drug cartels is being questioned amid rising violence.

    Barack Obama, the US president, has reiterated his administration's support for Mexico's fight against drug traffickers.

    Violence along the US-Mexico border has skyrocketed since Felipe Calderon, the president of Mexico, sent government troops to confront the drug cartels.

    Now there is a growing feeling that the military strategy has been counter-productive.
