Historia del narcotráfico en México

Un análisis implacable y excelentemente documentado sobre los orígenes y alcances del narcotráfico en México, escrito por una de las voces más autorizadas en temas de crimen organizado, narcotráfico y política mexicana.

El problema del narcotráfico en México ha alcanzado niveles insospechados debido a los acuerdos siniestros entre los líderes de los cárteles y los cuerpos policiacos, por l. a. complicidad con algunos miembros del gobierno y las negociaciones establecidas por los narcos con militares y cuerpos de seguridad.

El alto posicionamiento de los narcotraficantes resulta impactante y digno de un análisis cuidadoso. Guillermo Valdés lo ofrece en estas páginas de manera puntual y objetiva; elabora un recuento de sus protagonistas y los mecanismos que emplearon para alcanzar l. a. cima en el negocio de los estupefacientes. Habla de grupos que ganan terreno cada día por medio del crimen, el asesinato y el comercio voraz, así como las prácticas utilizadas para fortalecer sus bandos e imponer su ley.

Guillermo Valdés, titular del Centro de Investigación y Seguridad Nacional (CISEN) durante el gobierno de Felipe Calderón, en una de las etapas más críticas del enfrentamiento entre el Estado y los narcotraficantes, elabora una radiografía insuperable de este fenómeno social que fractura el orden social de nuestro país. Basado en un trabajo de campo agitadísimo, caracterizado por una delicada toma de decisiones, así como en años de investigación sobre problemas sociales de México, seguridad nacional y ejercicio del poder, el autor analiza las primeras expresiones del narcotráfico en nuestro país durante las décadas de los años veinte a los cuarenta del siglo pasado, el auge y los angeles consolidación monopólica de 1940 a 1980, las fragmentaciones y rupturas durante los últimos años del siglo XX y l. a. guerra franca del gobierno mexicano contra el narco en el presente siglo.

Meticuloso y revelador, Guillermo Valdés detalla las acciones de los narcotraficantes y sus alcances en cuanto a ganancias, territorio y formas de operar; repasa el origen del comercio de drogas y las estrategias de sus actores esenciales: desde Caro Quintero, Ernesto Fonseca: "Don Neto" y Félix Gallardo, hasta "El Mayo" Zambada, los Beltrán Leyva, Amado Carrillo: "El señor de los Cielos", Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán, los Arellano Félix y Héctor "El Güero" Palma, entre muchos otros personajes que, en complicidad con comandantes de l. a. policía, agentes ministeriales, representantes del ejército y políticos, han conformado un grupo de poder sin precedentes.

Historia del narcotráfico en México es, sin duda, los angeles investigación más importante sobre l. a. guerra contra el narco y sus protagonistas, además, un documento esclarecedor, objetivo y sincero, escrito desde lo más profundo de los angeles problemática y con necesidad de contar los angeles verdad, aunque sea dolorosa.

Example text

The temperature of the hot water supply is an input, as clearly the temperature of the supply water is not influenced by the shower. The temperature of the water immediately after the mixing valve(s) is an output, but we cannot observe this temperature in general. Similarly the water temperatures of the hot and cold water supply are signals but they are not readily observed. The (accessible) behavior of our shower may simply be the collection of all histories of tap positions combined with the corresponding histories of shower temperatures.

Of course, feedback also leads to more interesting behavior and sometimes unexpected behavior, and that is precisely the joy of feedback. 7 The Basic Control Loop The basic control loop consists of sensors to measure what matters and a capacity to interpret the data and decide on an action, that is then implemented using some actuator. It mimics very much the way humans or animals control tasks that they have intended to complete: sense, interpret, act. Consider for a moment, by way of example, the relatively simple control task you are performing right now, namely reading this text.

The water level captures the storage of water, and the leaking of the water through the drain. The temperature captures the storage of heat inside the oven, and the leaking of heat from the oven to the environment. Additionally, the actual measurements, see Fig. e. with appropriate scales on the horizontal and the vertical axis Fig. 6 represents both the depth of water in the sink and the temperature of the oven. That some scaling is essential is obvious. As in one case we measure depth of water in the sink for which we use the meter for measuring and in the oven the temperature is measured in Kelvin or Celsius degrees.
