Attackers in Mexico blow up nine electrical plants

Usually we hear about death squads and drug mass murders.

Now it seems some *Terrorism* is on the menu as well.

I wonder if they used any "American" grenades ?



MEXICO CITY -- Assailants early Sunday blew up at least nine electrical power plants in one of Mexico's largest states, triggering blackouts that gunmen then used as cover to torch gasoline stations, residents and authorities said.

The attacks in Michoacan state, west of the capital, did not cause deaths or serious injuries, authorities said. But they served as a pointed reminder of the strength of drug gangs and other criminals.

Shortly after midnight, attackers armed with Molotov cocktails almost simultaneously disabled electrical substations in at least nine cities and towns in Michoacan, plunging an estimated 1 million people into darkness. The power was out for 15 hours.

America used to give them guns.

Now they give em explosives?

The long and short of it is, US stages terror globally, so it most likely staged this one, too!

NINE power plants were blown up? What's their big plan because they definitley have one, this isn't just random acts of stupidity and violence.

This is really scary stuff since these cartels are just as disgustingly dangerous & vile as Al Qaeda and don't doubt they work together via the drug trade. One of my big fears would be coordinated terrorist attacks on our power plants. You wanna cripple a population? Take out their electricity.

This is very scary stuff and hit way too close to home!

I just remembered something, very recently Mexico City was considering legalizing marijuana, mostly. It was going to be a major decriminalization aimed at hurting cartels and the drug trade while keeping innocent pot users out of jail!

Any type of drug legalization does not suit the cartels needs, Mexico City Moving Toward Marijuana Legalization

imho . . .

this HAS to be an NWO globalist ordered series of attacks . . .

to punctuate their National Geo special tonight on the collapse of the power grid.

HAS to be.

The evil doers would not have been allowed to get away with that much unless the puppet masters WANTED IT TO HAPPEN.

The PTB exercise too much of their !CONTROL! freak tendencies for it to be otherwise, imho.

Nothing in the article suggests grenades were used, American made or otherwise.

Molotov cocktails are not grenades.

This is a grenade.


This is a Molotov cocktail.


To be honest, i am only surprised that attacks on municipal infrastructure of this scale hasn't happened sooner. It's only a matter of time that this is replicated north of the border.

Fast & furious, gasoline and beer bottles. We, the U.S. have seen some serious budget cuts. Couldn't afford grenades.

It's a message. 'We can make anyone suffer'. It's not just the locals in small villages getting their heads cut off anymore, making a move on the the areas that were once thought 'safe'. Certain clusters of people aren't sufficiently frightened and subservient, so they flexed some muscle.

I think the big plan is to keep terrorizing everyone into turning a blind eye to the corruption and suffering these cartels use to thrive. If everyone is fearful and there is no one left to stand up to them, they stand to gain even more profit. Shot across the bow of the wealthy and otherwise protected, we can make you suffer too.

The cartels in Mexico are a festering leg wound that we keep ignoring while we overextend our resources and military might combating ghosts across the Ocean.

Grenades possible...




October 17, 2013 at 5:07 pm


CBS News has learned of a shocking link between a deadly drug cartel shootout with Mexican police last week and a controversial case in the U.S. The link is one of the grenades used in the violent fight, which killed three policemen and four cartel members and was captured on video by residents in the area.

According to a Justice Department “Significant Incident Report” filed Tuesday and obtained by CBS News, evidence connects one of the grenades to Jean Baptiste Kingery, an alleged firearms trafficker U.S. officials allowed to operate for years without arresting despite significant evidence that he was moving massive amounts of grenade parts and ammunition to Mexico’s ruthless drug cartels.

You just have to love that a powerful gang calling themselves the Knights Templar is just owning Mexico lately.

Fear them, they have pamphlets.

It's deliberate to exhaust our military materiel and troops/Navy overseas.

They don't want them available and up to speed to more adequately defend CONUS, Alaska, Hawaii . . . when they schedule WW3 . . . evidently not that far off.

They really do want to trash the USA to ashes to enable overt establishment of the NWO all the easier on the world stage . . . on top of the smoldering pile that was once the USA.
