The dead included two of Bautista's bodyguards and two bystanders. two girls 2 and 12

This news comes one day after gunmen ambushed two police vehicles at a busy intersection in the northern border city of Ciudad Juarez, killing seven officers and a 17-year-old boy caught in the crossfire. Two more officers were seriously wounded.
There was no immediate information on the identity of the attackers, who numbered about 20.
State Attorney General Jesus Montejano told the local Milenio television station that the attackers used assault rifles, grenades, a grenade launcher and a powerful .50-caliber sniper rifle.
Several hours later after the ambush, assailants tossed a hand grenade at a police station in the Michoacan state capital, Morelia, about 30 yards (meters) from the state public safety department's headquarters. The explosion damaged three vehicles, but nobody was hurt.

Farther south, in the Pacific coast state of Guerrero, the dismembered bodies of three men were found in plastic bags inside a home outside the resort of Acapulco on Saturday. a hand-lettered sign blamed the three dead men for an April 14 shooting that killed six people on Acapulco's main boulevard.

Sounds like just another normal day in Mexico SNAFU

Sounds like Mexico is being over-run with terrorists commiting terroristic acts,why doesnt the gwot apply here? Because there is no oil deposits in Mexico? This constant murder and killing must stop,for christs sake there were children murdered here.

One things for sure whatever needs to be done to stop it needs to be done now,its not going away and its spilling over into America so it becomes our problem like it or not.

Oh there's lots of oil deposits in Mexico...
especially in and around the yucatan (Gulf)
As an FYI the cartels got there hands in that too...
the countries national oil company reported thousands of illegal taps in their pipelines... cartel's are filling up tankers with the stolen stuff and driving it up to Texas to sell to refiners for pennies on the dollar...

Oops I wasn't supposed to tell how "Big Oil" is enabling the violence down there... lets just say there are certain commercial interests that would prefer things stay the same... or get worse...

Well that doesnt suprise me one little bit,damn the corrupt who are in colusion with these child murdering animals.

Mexico is completely out of control now,this little war down there seems to be escalating daily and our response seems to be dismal at best. Its time we diverted a few predators over that area and started terrorizing the terrorists.

Oh I agree with you 100%
but just a couple days ago we got this official statement about the some 22,700+ KIA

This is the cartel-on-cartel violence that President Felipe Calderon says accounts for 90% of the casualties in the drug war.

in other words no one should pay to much attention...

So obviously the two girls killed yesterday... what were they, 12 and 2 years old...had to be notorious cartel members, right? Didn't Calderon say it was all Gang on gang violence...

No every day we sit with hands folded behind our backs it will only make things worse... if we do nothing we might end up having to build a wall just to protect ourselves of from a flood of millions fleeing and seeking refuge...
