Lets just keep it in perspective...
Even with 6 boats patrolling ~1200 miles of river, its not real likely that this will be THE answer to the drug smuggling problem. It may be a good start, it may be just another piece of puffery. In either case, I can't imagine the Mexican drug cartels just throwing up their hands & giving up the business; they most likely will find a way as long as demand for their product remains high (unavoidable pun
) here in the US.
