You are assuming this is true. For some odd reason I'm not buying it. The only place I am seeing this is on message boards and the article quoted. Furthermore, the Los Zetas do not represent the Mexican government. It can't be called "an act of war".
The very first site listed is a news site. Guess you are "assuming" this is not true.....

Second, I cant imagine why in the world the cartels would do this. What do they have to gain?

No, they are not the official government, but the precedent has been laid for military intervention when another country is not wiling or capable of keeping it's militants confined to their borders. The latter certainly applies in this case. Depending on how the Obama administration and the Mexican government are allowed to handle this, this could be a good thing for Mexico, or a very bad thing.

One other site where native Texans in the Laredo area post laughed at it and said the site was "Nuevo Laredo", which is Mexican territory (across the Rio Grande) and not "Laredo, Texas."

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't that close to the Alamo?
