Vicente Fox "let's make a deal" proposal going over like a lead balloon
Francisco Saynez Mendoza, Mexico's Secretary of Marines (pictured), also weighed in today in dangerous Veracruz state, saying that any talk of peace negotiations would be tantamount to "surrender." Mendoza added, "When a conflict is based upon ideological differences between groups in society, there can be negotiated agreements, but when you're talking about organized crime, where there are murders, and attacks against society, there can be no deals -- you have to enforce the law to the fullest extent."
Speaking of the military offensive now underway in Veracruz, Mendoza said "We're going to suppress the violence here by destroying the logistical infrastructure of the criminals -- their supply storage facilities, their money, their weapons, their ammunition. In the past 10 days, violence has decreased 70%, especially right here in the port (of Veracruz)."
