Mexican President Felipe Calderón said that U.S. corrupt

By Michael Webster: Investigative journalist Syndicated.

Mexican President Felipe Calderón said he blames U.S. "corruption" to obstruct the efforts of his country to combat non-violent drug cartels.

"Drug trafficking in the United States is fueled by the phenomenon of corruption by U.S. authorities, "he said.

Calderon also told reporters that the main cause of problems in Mexico's drug gangs was "to have the largest consumer in the world (of drugs) with us. "

Corruption on both sides of the U.S. border with Mexico is deep and can be found in the highest levels of Mexican government and the U.S.

A senior member of the administration's helmet which will remain unknown, he said, "there is corruption in terms of Narco-trafficking in government and when there is no limit cash available cash that finds its way the powers that be and no boundaries when it comes to influence. "

With an estimated worldwide annual revenues of more than $ 300 billion million in illegal drugs are sold, not surprisingly, with that amount of cash that allows an enormous amount of that money to be freely distributed and passed around to make things happen.

With cash available as it should be no surprise that tons of illegal drugs finding their way in the U.S., where the same agencies that are responsible for stopping the flow of drugs are often the same as Mexican drug cartels pay with cash, much of it.

Carlos Rico, Mexico, Foreign Undersecretary for North America, told a meeting of Mex. Congressmen who "fail" for the government Mexico to solve the traffic of drugs into the United States, while the market demand is there.

According to press reports Mexican President U.S. blamed "corruption" to obstruct the efforts of his country to combat non-violent drug cartels.

Felipe Calderón also told reporters that "drug trafficking in the United States is fueled by the phenomenon of corruption by U.S. officials, said.

The President of Mexico launched a massive assault against drug cartels after entering office in late 2006, but the cartels have responded campaigns of violence and intimidation that left thousands dead in 2008 and 1,000 in 2009 until now.

Calderon acknowledged that some staff Mexican cartels have helped, but said the U.S. must wonder how many of its own officials were involved.

"It's not a problem exclusively Mexico, is a common problem between Mexico and the United States, "he said.

"I want to know how many U.S. officials have been prosecuted by this [corruption]. "

Calderon, who has deployed thousands of troops to the US-Mexico issues border regions to finish violence, also said the U.S. must stop the flow of weapons into Mexico, where police and security services are often less weapons.

But said recent talks with Barack Obama, the U.S. President had provided "a clearer, more vigorous response, one that coincides with the magnitude of the problem that we face, "he said.

President Obama and the Joint Chiefs chairman Admiral Michael Mullen recently discussed how U.S. military Mexico can help to address the increasing violence of drug cartels, according to a military officer. Mullen told the President that the violence has reached crisis proportions on both sides of the border.

Mexico's border cities, from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific Ocean, have been the impact of violence.

Last week, at least 20 people died during a prison riot in the city caused by violence between rival gangs of Mexico's drug cartels.

Another U.S. citizen was among the three decapitated bodies in Tijuana, Mexican authorities said Saturday. The growing drug violence has beheadings in Tijuana, Juarez and other Mexican cities more common. With more Americans to be added to that list last year.

In a high-level Mexican military and Mexican government last week, on CD. The authorities in Juarez of Mexico said it plans to have 10,000 soldiers and police Federal deployed in Ciudad Juarez at the end of the week in an attempt to quell the violence, with 12,000 in the rest of the states of Chihuahua and Baja California. Experts estimate more than 60,000 Mexican troops and federal police patrol in many cities in Mexico.

Two of the drug cartels deadliest Mexico have reached a combined force of 100,000 soldiers, causing havoc across the country and threatens the U.S. border, U.S. Department U.S. Defense told The Washington Times.

The billboards compete with the Mexican army in size and are both in Mexico and the U.S. crisis mode, as against what they fear is an insurgency that came across the border.

"It's moving to the crisis proportions," a defense official said no identified told The Times. The official also said that cartels have reached a size where they are on par with Mexico's army of 130,000.

The U.S. Military is very concerned about the ongoing violence in the U.S. Mexican border and Mexican drug cartels of the paramilitary capabilities. Gen. Victor E. Renuart Jr., commander of U.S. Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Commander says we have the emergency response forces are available and organizing and immediately available as emergency "on call" units for use against terrorists and other threats at the border of the nation.

The FT. Bliss 1st Armored Division soldiers will be available to defend homeland security, Renuart said.

Renuart, who visited Joint Task Force North, last year under his command, declined to discuss details of threats uncovered along the border with Mexico, but said many agencies, including JTF-North, have made "a very difficult border for someone to be seized."

The U.S. border with Mexico extends nearly 2,000 miles along the southern borders of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. In most areas, the border is in remote and sparsely populated the vast desert and rugged mountainous terrain, with large open water of the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific Ocean.

The Customs Service and Protection U.S. Border (CBP), Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is the federal agency with primary responsibility to detect and prevent illegal entry into the United States. The latest available data indicate that approximately 11,000 CBP agents patrol the nearly 6,000 miles of international border with the United States shares with its neighbors Mexico and Canada.

"It is prudent to assume that any of these established trafficking routes, whether human trafficking or drugs or weapons or money, either of them could be used, and what we want to keep our eyes and ears to ensure that all those not used in that sense, "Renuart has said in the past.

Possibly the greatest challenge will be to support the National Guard and reserve forces feeling the pressure of repeated deployments that also have depleted equipment supplies.

"Our job at NORTHCOM is to ensure that if there is a seam or a gap that we are not thinking about how we can fill it some other capacity, "the Defense Department said." What we had to do is think, 'How to solve the problem now or distance even in a case of short notice. And so we have access to capabilities now that I was not a year or two ago that they can move very quickly to fill that need.

"For example, if something happened in the El Paso Texas National Guard may not be immediately available capacity to respond, but Fort Bliss did in an active service unit, then pull that activates the target drive out and make available to the State for help. "
