U.S. Assistant Secretary, William Brownfield, said that the response of organized crime violence is a sign that is “close to collapse”


If he is to be believed! Assistant Secretary, William Brownfield

The Secretary of State for International Narcotics Matters United States, William Brownfield, said today that Mexico is seeing the beginning of the end of the drug industry.

In an interview with the online edition of the Colombian newspaperEl Tiempo“, the diplomat said that the answer of violence by organized crime in that country, is a sign that is “on the verge of collapse” because of pressure from the authorities.

“Four years ago we started a multinational effort in Mexico, dominated by the Mexican government, and what do we see today? In my opinion, we are seeing the beginning of the end with the beheading of cartels and reducing its operating capacity,” he said.

Brownfield said “is what we saw in Colombia in the 1980s and early 1990s, when the cartels felt pressure from the authorities and their response was violence.”

Brownfield, Colombia experienced a similar situation, but then it was not known that the violence was a “sign of an organization to collapse. My theory is that this is what we see in Mexico today.”

The U.S. official admitted that the success of Colombia’s efforts against the drug industry, led to the growth of the illegal activity in Mexico, before their travel to Central and North America.

He said the problem with Central America will move to the Caribbean and most likely will worsen in the coming months and years, because the drug is going to search for new routes to pressure from the authorities.

“They have two options: the Pacific, with sea lanes that are not very attractive, or return to the Caribbean, where they were in the ’80s,” Brownfield said.

He considered that “Dominican Republic is a victim of geography, if it was in the middle of the Pacific would have no problem. But they are in the middle of the Caribbean and the likelihood is that we will see more traffic through that area, no less. In my opinion, this crisis has not begun. “

He explained that the question is still a threat of Mexican cartels in Spain, “but the fact that the conquest of territories and markets and other suppliers could result in a war.”

In recent years the eight Mexican cartels consolidated their internationalization presence. In a report by the PGR updated to August this year, reveals that Mexican transnational organizations have partnerships operating in 16 countries in the hemisphere .

“El Chapo”, with the largest or the Sinaloa cartel Pacific, led by Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, has hegemony. Until now has expanded its presence to 13 countries on the continent: Canada, United States, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Belize, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Argentina and Venezuela.

The closest competitors of the organization “El Chapo “are Gulf cartel and” Zetas “(formerly antagonistic allies and today), operating in a total of nine nations, as documented by the Mexican federal government sharing intelligence with the authorities in these countries.

Both groups are in the United States, Guatemala, El Salvador, Panama, Colombia and Bolivia, seeking to control territory. It has also documented the presence of “Los Zetas” in Honduras, Argentina and Brazil, while their rivals now Gulf cartel operating in Belize, Costa Rica and Peru.

The other criminal groups also have operations in some of these nations, but not at the same level. For example, the once powerful as the Arellano Felix cartel, is present only in the United States and Peru, while Juarez is on American soil, maintaining its alliances in Colombia, as well as Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama, and has Argentina reached.

In this drug map, the recent criminal group “The Knights Templar“, which grew out of “The Family” in 2011, in just one year operates in the U.S., while the group from which emanated Michoacan has ramifications on U.S. soil, Colombia, Costa Rica and Guatemala.

While Ecuador and Venezuela, see how the Mexican and Colombian cartels used as transit countries, with the consequences of violence on the rise, while Chile with Argentina-seen as a haven for the supply of precursor chemicals, are used as ports output to export the drug to Africa and Europe. Brazil is the largest consumer just Latin America, but also the largest supplier of chemical inputs to process cocaine.

Bruce Bagley, director of the Center for Latin American Studies, said that Mexican cartels are in control in the Andean region and the Northern market. “There is something very clear: instead of letting traded intermediary groups (drug), they (the Mexican narcos) are already hands in the dough.”

“We had no major problems capos here, and now, we speak here of cartels and mini-posters . The crops also appear in Zulia, Tachira, Apure. ” Hernan Matute , coordinator of the Drug Free Chair of the Institute of Caracas.”

This phenomenon of ‘paid assassins’ was not observed in Argentina, becomes a worrying situation that goes together with increased drug trafficking. ” Eduardo Amadeo , deputy national Peronist Front.
