Over a 6 Year Period Mexico Has Had 56,000 Soldiers Desert

As high as the number of deserters may sound, it actually represents an improvement over recent years.

Over 106,000 soldiers abandoned the military without authorization during the previous Mexican administration of Vicente Fox, who belonged to the same center-right National Action Party as Calderón.
What the article doesn't mention is that most of these soldiers take their weapons with them, which wind up in the hands of criminals.
