Wack-a-mole: Military broadens U.S. push to help Mexico battle drug cartels

Not only do "U.S. military officials" not want to "trigger a backlash among a Mexican public," they don't want to trigger one with U.S. citizens opposed to the further miltarization of both foreign and domestic "security" policy. This also may explain why, while there have been "leaks" about the Obama administration reviewing the government's Mexico strategy, there have been no official announcements of any changes to the U.S. "Whack-a-mole" strategy.

Military broadens U.S. push to help Mexico battle drug cartels: "The U.S. military has begun to work closely with Mexico's armed forces, sharing information and training soldiers in an expanding effort to help that country battle its violent drug cartels, according to U.S. and Mexican officials.

U.S. military officials have been hesitant to discuss publicly their growing ties with Mexico, for fear of triggering a backlash among a Mexican public wary of interference." Nov. 10. 2010, Washington Post
