ZITACUARO, Mexico, June 14 (Reuters) - Suspected drug cartel hitmen killed 10 police officers and 28 inmates died in a prison gun battle on Monday in Mexico's escalating war over the narcotics trade, security officials said.
Gunmen used a heavy truck to block a highway in the Western state of Michoacan and opened fire on a federal police convoy.

If America Had these thugs rolling around in US cities there would not be a damned thing you guys could do about it.
yet we don't even feel the need to secure our borders. What's wrong with this picture?
Merida Initiative, US sending Clinton, Defense Secretary, and other top officials to work with Mexico.
IMO, the US is in charge of this war.
Why Mexico is cooperating or what they get out of it is the million dollar question?
