Mexico Fully Supports War on Drug Cartels Print E-mail

Nearly all Mexicans stand in full support of President Felipe Calderon’s military war against drug lords. Those opposed to the measures are drug cartel members, as well as UN-backed and George Soros-funded human rights organizations in the country.

According to the Houston Chronicle, “a new survey finds that eight of 10 Mexicans support the military crackdown against drug traffickers launched in 2006.”

The Pew Research Center released the poll on Wednesday to disclose that 80 percent of those questions support the army’s active participation in the battle.

“Still,” as reported by the Houston Chronicle, “most also worry about human rights violations by the military and police: About 74 percent saying that’s a big problem.”

The Washington-based center conducted the survey on face-to-face interviews with 1,200 Mexicans from across the nation between March 20 and April 2. The error rate is plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.
