Whack-a-mole Drug War: Revamped Mexican anti-drug strategy focuses on Zetas

Suppose you could call this "focused mole whacking." The problem continues to be that the mole whackers still don't understand that when you whack a mole, it doesn't die, it reproduces.

Revamped Mexican anti-drug strategy focuses on Zetas - Wire - Lifestyle - bellinghamherald.com: "The Mexican government is refocusing its drug-war strategy to take down the Zetas paramilitary cartel, a significant shift in approach that is likely to be met with increased violence, according to U.S. and Mexican officials familiar with the plan.

Underscoring the shift is a series of bloody confrontations in the past several weeks pitting the Zetas against Mexican marines. The targets of those clashes were 'senior Zetas leaders,' said a U.S. law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity. The battles led to dozens of cartel members being killed or arrested, helping to weaken what many consider to be the most violent cartel group and the one that poses the biggest threat to Mexico's national security."
