This is probably a sign that US involvement in Mexico is paying dividends.
US has increased the agents it has in Mexico in addition to drones patrols.
At the time, it was considered a rare success in U.S.-Mexico law enforcement cooperation. Now, unprecedented numbers of U.S. law enforcement agents work in Mexico, and high-profile arrests occur monthly. U.S. drones spy on cartel hideouts, while U.S. tracking beacons pinpoint suspect's cars and phones.
The most competent reply thus far in my humble opinion. Mexico is finally opening its hand a little wider and letting us help with more boots on the ground. Go ahead and behead some U.S. DEA agents, we'll ready up a military/CIA/DHS unit and have our black out boys operating in your cartel zone. We all know how that turned out for Escobar...and 90% of his accomplices and relatives. Los Pepes wasn't just some rag-tag band of civilians. You want more blood...we'll see how you feel when cartel bodies REALLY start hitting the floor.
Yes, I'm sure the Prohibitionists would just love to invade another country. Thanks for the help, US-style prohibition is just all the vogue here. Can't begin to say how much everyone loves what is happening in Mexico these past few years.
I don't know that the manta was put-up by the cartels necessarily. There are just so many of us here that love the ATF for selling us all those weapons, the CIA for transporting the drugs with the Special Forces personnel to make sure the Drug Was is running smoothly. Those services aren't advertized much so I guess the DEA is needed for show-and-tell.

So it has been with little surprise that I have read articles coming out of Washington in recent weeks, with US officials talking about a "Salvador Option" in Iraq, not only for democracy-building, but also for a more aggressive campaign to eliminate Iraqi insurgents and their supporters.

US elements are already in country from Special Forces advisers, CIA, and DEA assisting the Mexican government, military, and law enforcement in Mexico's drug war.
