Mexico quietly marks 10 years of drug war

Enrique Pena Nieto has created a new federal police force and imprisoned or killed several drug kingpinsTen years after Mexican troops were unleashed against drug cartels, the country will mark the anniversary without fanfare on Sunday, with murders rising again and the military eager to return to barracks. The administration has no events planned to commemorate the controversial deployment that was launched by his predecessor, Felipe Calderon, on December 11, 2006. Ten days after taking office, Calderon deployed some 5,000 troops to his western home state of Michoacan — the start of a militarized campaign against drug trafficking.
