During a TV interview, part of a blitz of interviews by Mexican President Felipe Calderón, the leader said his government’s success in fighting drug cartels depended on the capacity of the police, El Proceso reported. “It depends on a critical factor,” he said, “the day that we have state police who are capable of confronting, like the Armed Forces do now, the criminals. I mean if a group of six or seven trucks with armed men appear you need a group that is capable of reacting and defeating those six or seven trucks. So this could take a year, two years or five years. It depends on what we politicians do.”
