More Blowback

Just as Mexico's cartel wars are spilling over our border, the effects are also spilling over on Mexico's southern border:

Two high-ranking U.S. military commanders say Mexico's violent war against drug cartels has moved into other parts of Central America.

Air Force General Douglas Fraser, the head of the U.S. Southern Command, told the Senate Armed Services Committee Tuesday that transnational organized crime rings are threatening to overwhelm law enforcement and are “seriously impacting civilian safety” in the area.

Of course, for the Central American governments who lack the more robust governing and security infrastructure that we have, the problem is far more serious.
