The train of drug violence chugs on:
"The message was clear when two explosions ripped through crowds of Mexican Independence Day revelers: Anyone, anywhere, is fair game when it comes to Mexico's intensifying violence.
What wasn't clear was exactly who threw the two fragmentation grenades at a holiday celebration in the picturesque town of Morelia, killing seven people and injuring more than 100 others.
Michoacan Gov. Leonel Godoy immediately pointed a finger at the state's warring drug cartels. "Without a doubt, we believe this was done by organized crime," he said, but offered little to back up his claim.
Following an emergency meeting with Godoy, President Felipe Calderon pledged an immediate military response, the federal government's answer to drug violence."
Only I very much doubt a Surge is going to have much of a lasting effect in this case, unless Mexico can sustain martial law indefinitely in certain regions. Unlike Iraq the fuel that fires this violence isn't sectarian, philosophical, ideological or truly political. It's about utilizing the corruption and weakness of the Mexican government and the enabling American legal system to make huge amounts of money. Good luck stopping that with curfews and armed men in the street, President Calderon.
