An increased war on drugs?

Hillary Clinton has been in Mexico, and...:

"U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Wednesday that America's "insatiable" demand for illegal drugs and inability to stop weapons smuggling into Mexico are fueling an alarming spike in violence along the U.S.-Mexican border."

Be careful here.
We're all for greater border security.
But this kind of rhetoric smacks of an attempt by the Obama administration to jack up the war on drugs. That war hasn't worked, and conservatives should be wary of encouraging more of it.
