Sharp Calderón response to Fox's "truce" suggestion: It is your fault

Recently, former president Vicente Fox notably called for a "truce" of some kind with the criminal gangs fighting the Mexican government, and each other.

Calderón yesterday offered a rebuke that could hardly be harsher, essentially stating that Mexico is in this situation because of the truce Fox gave these organizations: "to the extent that one did not act with determination against the criminals, they were expanding in networks all around the country."

Essentially: It is Fox' fault for not having taken them on.

So much for the party unity that prominent PAN members have been calling for: It is hard to image the relations between the current and former presidents being any colder.
