    EDS NOTE GRAPHIC CONTENT - FILE - In this Feb. 21, 2011 file photo, the body of a man with his hands tied behind his back lies on the ground in the Pacific resort city of Acapulco, Mexico. Five years after President Felipe Calderon launched his assault on organized crime, about 45,000 troops have been deployed, plus several thousand more from the Navy infantry, or marines. More than 45,000 people have been killed by several counts, though the government stopped giving figures on drug war dead when they hit nearly 35,000 a year ago. Still, the flow of drugs continues unabated into the U.S. while arms and money flow into Mexico. (AP Photo/Bernandino Hernandez, File
