Mexican drug war nastiness

MEXICO CITY – The third Mexican mayor in a month was slain by suspected drug gang hitmen on the same day the U.S. secretary of state raised hackles in Mexico by saying the country is "looking more and more like Colombia looked 20 years ago."

Hillary Rodham Clinton and other U.S. officials pointed to Mexican drug cartels' use of three car bombs, a tool once favored by cartel-allied rebels in Colombia, as evidence that the gangs "are now showing more and more indices of insurgency."
Knocking off mayors and using car bombs shows that this mess is far beyond semi auto rifles and where they came from. And not to throw cold water on Hillary's plan absent the facts that she has, but didn't we already have Special Forces Soldiers train the Mexican military? Last I heard, that was not working in our favor.
