This ongoing "problem" with the drug cartel in Tijuana will remain a problem until BOTH the US and Mexico recognize the real problem: American's thirst for drugs. As long as there is a demand, someone will fill that demand. Throwing money, political rhetoric and more police at this problem LOOKS good but is ineffective. We need to be asking why we are so addicted to these drugs and how are we going to help people to become unaddicted to them? This takes time, does not have a readily tangible fix, but at some point, we either resign ourselves to this as a never ending problem or address the true underlying problem of drug addiction.
