I don't see how this is a good thing.
How could it not be. Should the people continue to be robbed of opportunity, exposed to horrific crimes and oppression? It's unfortunate that the good people's blood will also be spilled but that is what happens in revolutions. It's called sacrificing for the good of the people. Something many Americans have forgotten all about. And there are MILLIONS of people around the world that wish they were doing the very same thing as those upstanding citizens.
NUEVA ITALIA, Mexico — The Mexican military and vigilantes clashed early Tuesday as soldiers tried to disarm groups who say they are fighting a local crime cartel.
A spokesman for the vigilantes said the military opened fire on civilians and killed four people, including an 11-year-old girl. But the Attorney General’s Office said it could not confirm any casualties.
“They opened fire on civilians. How it that justified?” Beltran told MVS radio.

I wonder how many countries with paramilitary/guerrilla are truly better than what they were before the discontent started. many African countries are a good example.
I'm sure the U.S. government will see the time is right to switch from supporting the cartels to selling arms to the rebelling people.
Hopefully, as others have said, they succeed in both liberating themselves AND in not becoming their own new tyranny.
