Mexico - The state and the drug cartels | Journal
The Mexican drug war is an ongoing asymmetric low-intensity conflict between the Mexican government and various drug trafficking syndicates. When the Mexican military began to intervene in 2006, the government's main objective was to reduce drug-related violence. The Mexican government has asserted that their primary focus is dismantling the cartels, and preventing drug trafficking demand along with U.S. functionaries. Therefore, the conflict has been described as the Mexican theater of the global war on drugs, as led by the U.S. federal government.
