I know the the Southern border is going to get worse, yeah, but I never thought IEDs for some reason. Just never entered my mind.

Not good.

If this is up already, apologies. I did look for existing threads.

Nothing about this is showing up anywhere else in the news media that I can find. Are you sure that this is a reputable news source?

I read it earlier on another news portal, but I'll have to go find it again. The weapons alledgedly belonged to Mexican gangsters, for use against a rival gang. That was according to the story I read earlier. I'll go see what I can find.

Edit: Here it is - CNN 7 Hours Ago

Those crazy potheads eh?
Nothing to see here, no need for the major news services to run this news. Move along now.


Much of the violence in Nuevo Laredo has been attributed by U.S. and Mexican authorities to a renegade band of Mexican military deserters known as the Zetas, who were trained in the U.S. as an elite force of anti-drug commandos. About 200 strong, they have since signed on as mercenaries for Mexican drug traffickers.


What a world!
