New Defense market report from Business Monitor International: "Mexico Defence & Security Report 2016"
[ClickPress, Tue Oct 20 2015] During 2014, there has been a significant improvement in the anti-narcotics campaign with the arrest and deaths of several drug cartel leaders and officials. Some of the largest cartels have suffered losses and the campaign has received considerable praise. However, with a lot of civil unrest over the massacre of 43 trainee teachers, the security situation is likely to escalate in 2015, due to the continued corrupti on amongst the security forces.
Even though the operations against the drug cartels have had significant success over the past year, the corruption and alleged inactivity on certain cases has lead to an increase in civil unrest. Reports of 43 trainee teachers going missing and being discovered massacred have dominated media coerage, leading to riots and civil unrest. This has emphasised Mexico's weak security situation. Notably, even though hitmen of a drug cartel have confessed to the murders, it is believed that the trainee teachers were murdered by corrupt security officials. These allegations have not yet been addressed, indicating that no further action will be taken at this point.

In terms of terrorism risk, Mexico's armed forces do not currently take part in UN overseas missions, meaning the country has not attracted the sort of terrorist attention experience by other pro-US Latin American nations.
Although Mexico and the US have formed a strong security relationship, with the US having helped fund several acquisitions as well as lend the use of resources for several operations, US voices question whether US support should continue due to the endemic corruption taking place in Mexico. Although unlikely, if the US discontinues their funding and help to Mexican forces, this could have disastrous effects for the country's security and ongoing war against the drug cartels.
