Since Peña Nieto took office Dec. 1, Mexico has seen one of its largest single massacres, when 17 musicians were kidnapped, slaughtered and dumped
in an abandoned well in Nuevo Leon state in January. About 100 people were killed during just-finished spring break, including several shot in bars in
Mexico's second-largest city, Guadalajara. An American was among the victims. END QUOTE:
I did another thread about the progress the Cartels are making in setting up distribution networks in the USA which should be an eye opener for anyone
who thinks where that road leads.
CHICAGO (AP) -- Mexican drug cartels whose operatives once rarely ventured beyond the U.S. border are dispatching some of their most trusted agents
to live and work deep inside the United States - an emboldened presence that experts believe is meant to tighten their grip on the world's most
lucrative narcotics market and maximize profits. END QUOTE
As many already know the majority of the Mexican population is disarmed either through Mexican laws or their economic circumstances and can not defend
The new government is trying to say "See since you voted us in things are much better"......Even though the numbers posted are not necessarily
correct..... every year (month?) they seem to find a mass grave where numerous bodies are found; surprise!.
I feel so sorry for any country that becomes a Narco State.
Mexico certainly does not have the monopoly on that especially if you look further south of their border with the deaths and mayhem the organized
traffickers cause. Most of the South American continent and all states therein have been touched by the corruption and deaths.
What is the answer? Legalized drugs? Arm the people letting all military trained vets carry concealed?
Many stories about military and government officials being on the take from some cartel....
I am not Mexican and it is their country so maybe it is not any of my business except I know to many good Mexicans who fear for their life.
I think about America being disarmed and the Cartels moving north with plans for another Narco state of distribution. Hopefully no one wants to see
You think it can't happen here...650 Mexican marines and two armed armored personnel carriers were used to overcome less than 20 Zetas in Matamoras 3
years ago..They did not get all of them for 4 were reported to have escaped and headed for Houston, Tx. The only reason the operation was launched to
begin with (according to my sources) the Military commander for the region was paid more protection money by the Gulf Cartel than the Zetas were
paying; that month he got a double payment....Just business, nothing personal?
Mexicans in some areas are breaking the Mexican laws and arming themselves to fight the thugs who have taken over their village...I say good for them
but they will probably end up fighting the thugs and getting arrested by the government....What a mess........
