Doubts cloud Mexico’s war on drugs

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

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.
