Mexico's Security Spokesman Speaks to Al Jazeera

Al Jazeera's Lucia Newman interviews Mexican security spokesman Alejandro Poire


  1. Texcoco Mex said.

    After watching this video I think Alejandro Poire is kool.

  2. same murder rate in Mexico as in 94/95 interesting very very interesting statement

  3. @August 19, 2011 2:50 AM

    Maybe he meant that 94/95 total murder rate was same as now only drug related murder rate? Playing with words. Or he is speaking about fact. Should check that...

  4. Woww!.. Very interesting.. Maybe we should have Al Jazeera replace Fox News here in America.

  5. Does the Mexican government and elite class want to stop the flow of money from drugs that become investments? Why is the biggest port on the west coast of the Americas being built at Topolobampo, Sinoloa?

  6. @ 7:40 Bigger than the port in Long Beach?

  7. Notice there was nothing said about corruption.......hmmmm

  8. , before the war started most murders were "green lighted" by a capo or a captain making killings more controlled and unreported by the media. The murder rate was the same in the early 90's as it was today. Now that these king pins have been incapacitated as Mr. Poire states. These splinter-groups of "narcothugs" do not discriminate in who they kill. A halcone, a drug dealing teenager, a rival cartels family and innocents in general. The violence now in a way has become senseless, killings for excitement and parts of the country have become plagued with this petty but brutal crime and violence. Until corruption is tackled and a Standard training of municipal police is put as priority #1. The security of certain states in Mexico will always be at risk.

  9. I don't know where I stand on their policy, but I believe as he said the cartels were becoming too big and powerful having too much influence in banking and other key areas of Mexico's economy. I do like his response about they are not multiplying, but dividing explaining the difference and while the results seem to be worse, he does have a good point.

    If the cartels grew strong enough they could over throw the government and really make it a narco state. I think Calderon has balls for taking on organized crime, but foolish for not working on strengthening the legal and law enforcement system first, getting more outside help and having a real plan in place. I think his heart is in the right place and I think in the long term if this policy stands, Mexico will be a better place.

    One thing however, I don't see how drug use will slow down or stop anytime soon. Maybe the government is looking to control the flow of drugs and be a better "partner" to the USA.

    The truth is if drug flow into the US stopped or slowed aggressively, the drug addicts would rob and steal more than ever in desperation for drugs, crime would sky rocket in the inner city and outside the inner city.

    The only way the USA would ever lower consumption is if they had the most aggressive laws for drug use like in my Muslim countries and Singapore...Then eventually it would pretty much come down to a screetching halt, but they will never have those kinds of laws or consequences so thing will be what they are for the forseeable future.

    It's ashame that the cartels don't value their country enough to try and work out territory disputes with out disturbing the public to this extent.

  10. This dude is looking under her skirt...
