That's a little oversimplistic in regards to this situation. The Zetas are operating with a paramilitary mindset and their objectives are both to dominate the international drug trade around that region and to cow the authorities through terror tactics. They started a new front in the war on rivals (not drugs) and will not stop until their enemies or themselves are exterminated.
