One thing seems sure — they’re going to have a very difficult time with their efforts to avoid the “Plan Mexico” label (and it’s a bit telling that they’re trying to — why would you avoid the label if it was indicative of success?)

Of course, it is the Mexican government in particular that’s anxious to avoid the label because they see Plan Colombia as a de facto usurpation of Colombia’s autonomy. (Gee, I wonder why?)
