In my first post in this thread I listed several reasons why the whole issue is unlikely, according to stratfor.com, a source I cannot quote directly
without permission. Stratfor continues its analysis and brings up another salient point of why this makes no sense. They point out that the Mexican
cartels, despite their violent nature, are essentially business organizations who do not want and cannot afford undue attention directed at them. For
them to cooperate with a foreign intelligence service to attack the United States is, from THEIR OWN perspective, and extremely dangerous and foolish
thing to do.
Stratfor suggests that although it is not impossible, to do so would threaten the existence of any cartels and, in an odd twist, the cartels and both
the government of Mexico and the United States are more or less allied against the very idea. Mexico is extremely sensitive to what happens in the
United States and has the same enemies. Not that we get along all that well, but from the standpoint of stability, we are allied on the same side.
Stratfor also suggests that if anyone in a cartel splinter group had gone after this mission, the rest of the members of the cartel would not hesitate
to take them out, violently.
In yet another twist, one of the :"masterminds" was a used car salesman. A business associate of his claims
he's no mastermind
, indicating he certainly
wasn't the brains behind the plot.
So for Iran this is a stupid thing to do and for the cartels this is a stupid thing to do, lending credence, in my opinion, that it is a set-up in an
attempt to get the US to take on Iran directly.
