I bet the building does not fall down.

It's a seismic area, their buildings must be stronger than those on non-seismic areas.

 

I just saw on Euronews that some people say a gas explosion, probably resulting from an electrical problem with the air conditioning, but I don't think there's an official version yet.

Mr Pena Nieto said: "We have no conclusive report on the reason [for the blast]. We will work to get to the bottom of the investigation to find out, first, what happened, and if there are people responsible in this case, that we apply the full weight of the law against them."

*crickets"?

President Enrique Pena Nieto said authorities have not yet found what caused the blast in the 14-storey building in a busy commercial and residential area. Pemex first said it had evacuated the building because of a problem with the electrical system. The company later tweeted that the Attorney General's Office was investigating the explosion and any reports of a cause were speculation. "

The US has been fighting corruption and organized crime in both Mexico and Turkey?

No? The US was involved with Turkey firing all it;s military and busting a spy ring that was getting classified information through call girls and prostitutes. The head of the military was at the Pentagon and the White House for a week while all the arrest were being made. Here is just a little of what happened in turkey.link

And the US just busted Pemex laundering money for the Zetas three months ago.

Columbia could be the next attack area if I am right. The US has also been involved with busting corruption and organized crime there too. The US was also tied to shutting down the Colombian Intelligence Agency that Bush liked so much he wanted to give them air craft and helicopter parts along with spy gear.

All of these are tied together in the illegal activities they have been doing. A organized crime and corruption circle spanning the globe. And all working outside the normal circles just like Sibel Edmonds tried to point out but was shut down from disclosing the information.

So, what is it, espionage or "fighting corruption and organized crime"?

Wasn't it a different company?

I suppose you mean Colombia.

How was the US tied to it?

Are you saying that the US is fighting that organized crime circle?

The countries have been working with the US to find corrupt politicians that are working with organized crime. Espionage has been part of that. The leaks from government officials and military officials to organized crime. The government officials are making money helping the organized crime laundry money, make international trips with cargo and even leaking intelligence operations to them so they can avoid detection.

Mexico Pemex is ran by the Mexican government. The corrupt officials have been helping the Zetas laundry money through a government ran oil company Pemex. Now I can't tell you what steps were taken by the US or Mexico on all the money the Zetas had in that company dummy company working under Pemex. But it seems it was probably taken considering they bombed the Pemex headquarters.

Colombia had the same BS going on with government officials helping drug cartels avoid the War on Drugs air craft surveillance program. That is why the Colombia Intelligence Agency was shut down. They were working with drug cartels on protecting the shipments. That is why you had the prostitute thing in Colombia when the President visited. It was a case of payback by embarrassing the Secret Service and President for getting the agency shut down.

Another connection of all this is what the US has done after all of the arrest of officials and organized crime figures in these countries. The US funded and supported building new agencies from the ground up. Colombia has been given large amounts of money and has been working with the US to build a new Intelligence agency. Right now Mexico is building a version of the CIA in its country. That will legally allow the US to work in Mexico on fighting drug cartels in the Mexican governments eyes. They had laws they prevented other countries from doing it until this new agency was formed or in the process of being formed. The military bases in Northern Mexico have raised issues in the Mexican government because the US military has been using them to fight drug cartels in Mexico. Mexico found a way to make it legal. Or at least make it top secret so the people in Mexico have no right to know about?

Turkey I have not looked to much more into it on what they have done since they arrested hundreds of generals other military officials. Not sure how much of a stir it made with the different agencies there. But I am sure the US will gladly help out and try to take over or at least infiltrate their different agencies.

Pemex involvement with the drug cartels have been known for a long time.

The Mexican state of Veracruz isn’t normally in the news for the kinds of drug-related violence we’ve been seeing for years along the border. But don’t be fooled, the drug trade’s violence and corruption is moving steadily southward, and there are increasing indications that drug traffickers are working their way into the state-owned oil company, Pemex. As we’ve seen with the cartels’ other activities, when they get squeezed in one place, they move their business elsewhere. If counternarcotics agents block their drug-smuggling operations, they move into kidnapping and human-trafficking in order to keep the money flowing in. So why not oil? Corruption within Pemex has been endemic for decades. Pemex supplied massive amounts of the funding that kept corrupt PRI politicians in power for nearly seven decades. That corruption has never been rooted out. Increasing reports from Mexico indicate that lower-level Pemex officials are working in tandem with drug lords to divert oil shipments into private hands. Earlier this week, a manager for the Swiss-based oil-services company Weatherford was killed in Veracruz after being pursued by armed men and shot five times.

Is that a fact? And who are "they"?


The US funded and supported building new agencies from the ground up.

The US always funded those they thought would help them in the present or in the future, like the Taliban, when they were fighting the Soviet Union, no need for a hypothetical fight against corruption and organized crime.

After all, all countries need corruption and organized crime in other countries to help them get a "foot in the door".
