Whack-a-mole Drug War: Mexican cartels splinter, branch out as drug war rages

A good description of the chaos created by the U.S. and Mexican governments' "whack-a-mole" drug war strategy. "As Mexico's military and federal police seek to arrest or take out top cartel figures, the drug groups inevitably splinter in the subsequent power vacuums, and new self-described "cartels" are formed, although it is practically impossible to know how large or organized the new groups can be. Out of those, subgroups branch out, often seeking to claim new territory or "clean up" against a rival."
