Read this 4-part series, I'm wondering what the Mexican goverment is doing to stop the drugs from coming into Mexico from outside its borders? Are they actively pursing the drug movement from Central America, South America? I'd like to see an article about that.

Belle de Jour.

Good questions... but personally I think Mexico governments are probably involve in some way to track down drug movement but the question is how much.

And even if they say things are being down with the amount of corruption down there it is hard to tell how much of what they say is actually in-forced... the reality is Mexico unlike hte US is not a wealth country. And what usually happens is that the people with money ends up with a lot of power and who are those people ... Drug cartels :)
