Abstract:

From 2007 to 2009, nearly 10,000 people in Mexico died in drug-related violence. Who or what caused this? Some argue that it is Americans' insatiable demand for illicit drugs and the constant flow of guns from the United States, which arms the drug cartels. Others blame Mexico's own government, which, they claim, is so corrupt that it cannot clamp down on the cartels. Unable to ignore the rising violence spilling over the border, Congress approved $700 million in security aid for Mexico and promised to increase the number of federal agents and intelligence analysts. Officials on both sides wonder whether this will make a dent in the problem. Should Mexico's government take full responsibility for what goes on within its own borders? Has our own "war on drugs" been ineffective, or even counterproductive? (104 minutes)
