Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador declared an end to his countrys war on drugs Wednesday, announcing that the army would no longer prioritize capturing cartel bosses, Agence France-Press reports.
There is officially no more war. We want peace, and we are going to achieve peace, he said at a daily press briefing after being asked if his government had captured any kingpins since he assumed office in December.
No capos have been arrested, because that is not our main purpose. The main purpose of the government is to guarantee public safety
What we want is security, to reduce the daily number of homicides.

They made him a deal he couldnt refuse.
Probably sent San Fran NaN down as a bagman to convince him that its good for all of them to keep the money spigots open.
The Mex Prez was threatened (but related to gang theft of pipeline oil):
Sounds like a good excuse for Trump to declare a “State of Emergency”.
No capos have been arrested, because that is not our main purpose...our purpose is to line our own pockets.”
Mexico will be like Venezuela in the near future. We think we have refugee problems now....just wait a while.
“Didnt the last Mexican president get $100,000,000 from the cartels?”
Yep, and I’m sure the current Mexican President is well compensated too.
Are you single? ;-)
Mexico’s “war” against the drug cartels has been a sham for decades. Everyone knows that the cartels rather than the police or military call the shots in Mexico, so why not turn de facto into de jure?
Why would they kill him? He is exactly what they, the Cartels, want. But the killing will not stop, thus el presidente does not get what he is seeking.
Maybe he is getting out of the way of PDJT. Possible bombing runs on drug distributors by the US?
Green-eyed and classy and blonde?
Well, despite their offers, meth-EEK-0 doesn’t really want to have to pay for them. Specially when napa nan offered scads of money for food, clothing and medical(but no steenkin’ wall money). But, just not at her place in Napa though. If they ain’t pickin’ grapes, off the estate. Certainly all of her pickers have been E-verified.
Now he is ending the prosecution of the Cartels.
Sounds like we now have a National Emergency at the border when the southern partner has shirked all responsibilities for securing their side.
Mexico Prez says “we want peace”
ok but how many more dead innocent people will it cost for you to achieve “peace”?
the war will still be going on daily, whether this guy calls it one or not.
Calling off the war with cartels is tantamount to switching sides.
Mexico just officially became a narco state. The cartels are now running the country.
He accepted the cartels offer, money or death
On the contrary. He just extended his life.
Mexico lost control of it’s northern states a long time ago. The major cartels control them. I guess they got to this guy.
If there was ever a reason to build a wall, this is it.
We may need more than a wall if the whole county is in control of the Zetas.
Nothing happens in mexico before a bribe. And in this case, it was a grande of a bribe.
