Is Mexico Losing Its War against Drugs?

Hosted by

Five thousand people have been killed this year in Mexico's drug wars, twice the number of last year. The Mexican government has reports that 5000 people have been killed this year in that country's drug wars, almost 1000 in November alone, a monthly record. The violence is increasingly brutal, from Baja to Chihuahua, near the US border, and there's growing concern that it will cross over. In this rebroadcast from today's To the Point, how long will the Mexican public tolerate a climate of fear? Will the violence cross the border?
