Calderon and Obama Meeting

via Free Speech Radio News:

President Barack Obama met with his Mexican counterpart, Felipe Calderon yesterday for a high-level summit on bi-lateral relations. The outcome of the summit was not surprising and included, White House praises for what amounts to Calderon’s militarization of large swaths of Mexico under the mantle of fighting organized crime.

“I have nothing but admiration for President Calderon in his willingness to take this on. The easy thing to do would be for him to ignore the corrosive, corrupting influence of these drug cartels within Mexico. That would be the easy thing to do. He’s taking the hard path and he’s shown great courage and great risk in doing so. And the United States will support him in any ways that we can to help him achieve his goals because his goals are our goals as well…and they should be the goals of the Mexican people.”

But not all of the Mexican people share the goals outlined by the United States. And Mexico is experiencing some of the worst violence since the end of its Revolution. Reporter Shannon Young brings us the voices of people from Chihuahua, the state most impacted by the militarized Drug War.
