"We began seeing the weakening of the Sinaloa cartel and the strengthening of the VCF (Vicente Carrillo Fuentes) cartel and La Línea in Juárez because of the help of Los Zetas cartel since the end of last year," Stratfor's vice president of Tactical Intelligence, Scott Stewart, said.
Stewart was one of the speakers at the second day of the U.S.-México Border Security Summit. Wednesday's conference was at the Doubletree Hotel in Downtown El Paso.
The Juárez Chapter of ASIS International, an organization that provides private security services to businesses all over the world, organized the two-day summit to promote the El Paso-Juárez region to chief security officers and representatives of U.S. manufacturing companies.
During his presentation of "The Border Potential Treats: Intelligence," Stewart gave an update on the trends and dynamics of the major drug cartels in México, including the Sinaloa cartel, the Zetas, Jalisco Nueva Generación, the Gulf cartel, the Knights Templar and the Beltrán Leyva organization.
The Sinaloa cartel, which battles for turf with the Carrillo-Fuentes drug-trafficking organization, leaving more than 10,000 dead in Juárez since 2007, still controls almost all Chihuahua state.
However, Los Zetas, which are the second largest drug-trafficking organization in México and the Sinaloa cartel's biggest rival, has begun to help the Carrillo Fuentes cartel in moving illegal drugs around the El Paso-Juárez border in an attempt to regain control of this plaza, Stewart said.
He said that it is unknown how long the Sinaloa cartel is going to resist, but so far this year there has not been a considerable increase of violence in Juárez like in the past years.
"We think it is because the Sinaloa cartel's control over Juárez is eroding quickly," he said.
Stewart explained the Sinaloa cartel was hit hard with the killing in December of Gonzalo "El Macho Prieto" Inzuza, who was believed to be one of the chief cartel leaders. It was also impacted by the arrests in January of enforcer José Rodrigo Aréchiga Gamboa "El Chino Antrax" and ultimately the capture in February of the cartel's leader Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán.
"Once those guys are out of the picture it makes it more difficult for the Sinaloa cartel to project military power, so we think that is what is helping to keep down the violence," he said.

"Chapo doesn't run a very hierarchical cartel - his allies are more like a loose federation of warlords, like in Afghanistan," says Scott Stewart, an analyst with the intelligence firm Stratfor.

Scott Stewart VP of Tactical Analysis Print Text Size
Scott Stewart supervises Stratfor's analysis of terrorism and security issues. Before joining Stratfor, he was a special agent with the U.S. State Department for 10 years and was involved in hundreds of terrorism investigations.
Stewart was the lead State Department investigator assigned the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the follow-up New York City bomb plot. He also led a team of American agents assisting the Argentine investigation of the 1992 bombing of the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires and was involved in investigations following a series of attacks and attempted attacks by the Iraqi intelligence service during the first Gulf War.
Stewart was deputy regional security officer in Guatemala City and was responsible for embassy and diplomatic security at that post as well as in Belize City. As protective intelligence coordinator for Dell, he served as a member of Michael Dell's executive protective team. He also has consulted on terrorism issues for the Texas Department of Public Safety.
He is regularly featured as a security expert in leading media outlets, including The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, CNN International, NPR, Reuters, USA Today, The Associated Press, World Magazine, Fox News, Discovery Channel and Time magazine.

The chemical agents are believed to be designed for use in artillery shells, aerial bombs and ballistic missiles, said Scott Stewart of the U.S. security think tank Stratfor.
Bucci and Stewart estimate some 50 sites are associated with the program.
Bucci and Stewart said airstrikes carry too much risk of harming civilians, while targeted operations would not be able to secure all sites simultaneously.
Using special forces "would necessitate putting troops in harm's way, without overwhelming support," said Stewart, a former anti-terrorism investigator at the U.S. State Department.
Hezbollah could be deterred by the threat of Israeli retaliation, said Stewart. Such payback would jeopardize Hezbollah's standing as a key military and political force in Lebanon.
"The largest concern is jihadist actors getting their hands on chemical weapons munitions and using them in the region," such as firing rockets at Israel or targeting Western diplomatic missions in the area, he said.
