They can buy any kind of capability they want. But we are determined, working with Mexico, to do everything in our power to reduce this violence that affects not only the Mexican people, but our own."

Mid of Bersin leaving STORYLINE: A day after a bloody attack killed 18 people at a party in Torreon, Mexico, violence continued around the country on Monday. In Monterrey, a drug gang blocked off a street during a shooting early in the day, local television station reported. According to local media, one man was killed, his body lying in the street for hours after the attack. Police cordoned off the area while forensics scoured the crime scene for clues. Elsewhere, local media reported grenade attacks on two homes in Cuernavaca, Morelos state. One shattered windows in a door, but injured no one. No one was hurt in the other grenade attack, which ignited a blaze. In Ciduad Juarez, where a car bomb killed three people last week, a graffiti message scrawled on a wall on Monday threatened more attacks in the city across the border from El Paso, Texas. The message directed its threat at the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) and the US Drug Enforcement Administration, demanding an investigation of Mexican law enforcement officials who "support the Sinaloa cartel". The Sinaloa cartel - one of the world's most powerful drug-trafficking organisations - has been battling the Juarez cartel for control of Ciudad Juarez in a two-year-old war that has converted the city into one of the world's deadliest. Messages that presumed drug-gang members have scrawled on walls and banners and attached to the bodies of their victims frequently accuse Mexican federal forces of protecting the Sinaloa cartel, a charge President Felipe Calderon's administration vehemently denies. Monday's graffiti message said there would be another car bomb unless "corrupt" federal officials are arrested within 15 days. There was no way to verify the authenticity of the message. The FBI and the US Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms and Explosives are aiding the Mexicans in the car bomb investigation, officials from those agencies have said. Government troops and police stepped up their presence in Ciudad Juarez after the attack. To the north of the border, US officials denounced the bombing and announced their own security plans. "These drug cartels, they have an enormous amount of resources at their disposal. They can buy any kind of capability they want. But we are determined, working with Mexico, to do everything in our power to reduce this violence that affects not only the Mexican people, but our own," said State Department Spokesman Philip J. Crowley. At the Pentagon, officials described new security measures. National Guard troops will head to the US-Mexican border August 1 for a year-long deployment to keep a lookout for illegal border crossers and smugglers and help in criminal investigations, federal officials said on Monday. The troops will be armed but can use their weapons only to protect themselves, General Craig McKinley, chief of the National Guard Bureau, told a Pentagon news conference. The troops will undergo initial training and be fully deployed along the nearly 2,000-mile (3220-kilometre) southern border by September. The announcement provides details on how the government will implement President Barack Obama's May decision to bolster border security. "The border is more secure and more resourced than it has ever been, but there is more to be done," said Alan Bersin, commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, part of the Homeland Security Department. The 1,200 troops will be distributed among four border states, with Arizona getting 524; Texas, 250; California, 224 and New Mexico, 72. Another 130 would be assigned to a national liaison office. Bersin also said the Homeland Security Department will provide six more aircraft, including helicopters, to the border effort. He said at least 300 Customs and Border Protection agents and inspection officers would be sent to the Tucson, Arizona, area, along with mobile surveillance vans and additional technology. Mexico's drug violence has killed nearly 25,000 people since December 2006, when Calderon deployed thousands of troops and federal police to fight the cartels in their strongholds.
