MEXICO CITY-- Mexico's president gave a nationally televised speech on Friday and addressed the ongoing drug war in the country, as well as the deaths of more than fifty people in a casino fire in the Northern city of Monterrey last week. 

President Felipe Calderon said that he will fight to the last day of his term to defeat drug cartels that have taken over parts of the country. 

Addressing the casino attack, he described the deadly fire as one of the saddest events in Mexico's history.

If he was so fighting the Cartel's like he says then why does he not capture "El Chapo" Guzman? The leader of the Sinaloa Cartel is responsible for the majority of the deaths (with its fights against the other cartels), across Mexico and expecially those in CD Juarez. Since he is the BIGGEST "trouble maker" in the country wouldn't it make sense to capture him first then deal with the lesser evils?
