MEXICO: Washington Post uses the martial word
As Mexico Battles Cartels, The Army Becomes the Law - washingtonpost.com.
U.S. and Mexican officials describe the drug cartels as a widening narco-insurgency. The four major drug states average a total of 12 murders a day, characterized by ambushes, gun battles, executions and decapitated bodies left by the side of the road. In the villages and cities where the traffickers hold sway, daily life now takes place against a martial backdrop of round-the-clock patrols, pre-dawn raids and roadblocks manned by masked young soldiers.
The military’s withdrawal is dependent on the success of the police reforms, according to the government. U.S. and Mexican officials predict that troops will be patrolling the streets for years. In many regions, the army has become the law.
The army was responsible for one of the most painful episodes in recent Mexican history: the massacre of hundreds of student protesters days before the 1968 Mexico City Olympics.
