Nothing had been done to Combat Drugs, Legislators Disagree

Senators argued the claim from the Pentagon that before Felipe Calderon’s Presidency, the Mexican government did very little to combat the drug trade.  They also rejected the idea of sending US troops to fight in the drug war because it would violate Mexico’s sovereignty.  Tricolor senator Pedro Joaquin Coldwell said it was reckless to blame the PRI government of the current situation of public security.  Coldwell also wants his “neighbor to the North” to take into account that when the PRI was in power, drugs never had such a strong hold on national territory as it does now, nor was there so much violence.
