Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

La Compañia Z; Message To The Citizens

Thursday, April 22, 2010 |

A new email has surfaced, signed La Compañia Zetas. Below is my English translation, followed by the Original Unedited Message.

Beforehand, to whoever cares about this topic and wants to know the truth can keep on reading. This is an Official Communication send by La Compañia. We know that all the cities are angry with everything that is happening and are fed up of not seeing an end to this, but here is what is really happening.

They label us as Kidnappers, Extortioners, Murderers and more, but may I remind you all that before this all started, we where under the orders of the Cartel Del Golfo (C.D.G.) from whom we received our orders. Now that they declared war on us, they still want to blame us for burning houses, killing innocent people and more. As if they didn't do any of that, they claim they are this elegant, studied and good will people, so much that they rob clothing stores just to dress well.


They burn houses thinking that it will cause us to leave forever, they kill innocent people so that they can then blame it on us, so that the whole city will be against us, and they turn into the good ones. They put communications in different medias to try and cover the sun with a finger.


We don't need to be telling the Citizens to support us, much less recruit Jr. High students like they do. We are people who are prepared to fight and we don't need people who can't handle a weapon.


They declared war on us and now they can't see the end of it since they are situated in territories in which they can't move towards any side, that's why they need to form treaties with other Cartels to defend themselves. What they don't know is that their allies will end up killing them first.

I hope everything is clear about what the true reality is. Who recruits people who are not prepared, who murders innocent people to then blame us, who want to cause confusion in the city so that the citizens think that with them, all the Extortion, Murder and Kidnappings will end, who publishes thousands of Communications and pay big amounts of $$$$$ so that their videos are published.


We are who we are, we are aware of our actions and before we Act, we plan ahead. All we have left to say is, don't go out or leave your house if it is not necessary, and no matter what happens always try to take cover but keep in mind that we are trained individuals unlike them who don't know how to act in such a situation.
With this we are not asking you to support us or be putting people up. All we ask of you is not to cause us problems and let us work. At the end, the ones who will be victorious, will be the ones who have the most power and strategy to act complete his job. We are aware that we are losing some people, but they will lose everything. We can accomplish our objective without needing the help of the innocent people.

This is a very interesting letter, I was actually posting some comments earlier about the same thing. How cartels are now getting smarter and are now implementing psychological tactics, how although the Zetas murder innocent people, they ultimately worked for the CDG, and before they had any sort of conflict, everything was purple. What makes this piece of literature (if you can call it that) so interesting, is that they never deny killing innocent people, kidnapping people or burning houses, all they are trying to say here is "We do it, but so do they."

Consider it a smart tactic if you want, but very late on their part.

Actions speak louder than words, so a simple "Communication" as they called it, will not erase the body count that is automatically linked to Zetas. They should have manipulated the media since the start of this, not 4-5 months after their opponents. We will never know who the "good guys" are, because there are none. It is every man for his own interest out here, and whoever thinks otherwise needs to get a reality check. If you think that a certain cartel cares for the people, you better turn down the volume on those "Corridos", because those times are long gone my friends.

My suggestion, stay clear of night clubs, any place you all know that belongs to a certain group. Stay clear of police stations, military headquarters and any heavily populated area. As "Z43" said in the video, "llegamos a calentar la plaza", which basically means to cause confusion and conflict by killing innocent people and blaming the opposition. The more attention that is drawn to a certain area because of murders, the harder their job turns. Remember, take care of yourself and most importantly.. Appreciate your loved ones, because at the rate this is going, you never know if tomorrow might be your last day. So grab on to your family, and remind them how much they matter to you, and through all the rain and the pain, there's always a brighter day.

You like to quote the Zeta in the interrogation video as if everything he is saying is through his own words. You quote him as if you can beleive just what he is saying. Remember people will say anything when being tortured or being threatened with torture, as the Zeta in the video. Its so obvious he is being coached on what to say in the video. It looks and sounds rehearsed. My point is you cannot say, "you see its the zetas doing all the killing", because the video has a zeta saying so. he is saying such things because he is being forced to!

A message to the Z's. Why are you even doing what you are doing at all in the first place. For money? power? what? will you live easier...sleep better at night with more money? You brutalize your citizenry and your people for the sake of what? even if you win over the CDG or whoever else, NONE of you will ever take with you (what you earned in blood in this life) to the next my friend. we all come out the same way we came. ALONE.

If what you want is fame and respect, well guess what, time marches on, people die off, new generations come, and whatever you achieved in this life is long gone and forgotten after a few generations down the road.

What you should do is find enlightenment. Then you can exist forever.

No that's not correct @ comment #1. I was the first to point out that it sounded rehearsed, and there where many segments of the videos. I pointed it out in the soldier interrogation video, and If you notice, I always question the authenticity of things. Although, I don't need a video to tell me that the Zetas are doing the killings. All I have to do is remember how it was before the war started.. If my memory doesn't fool me, the Zetas have been animals to society long before the war broke out.

But I don't agree with you completely, some stuff looks coached, other doesn't. Also, some stuff is to specific to be made up.

I find it comically that one cartel is saying "we are here to help you get rid of the bad guys", but that is like the wolf guarding the chicken coop. The CDG is not doing this for the people, they are acting on their own personal greed.

I just pray that Americans relize the danger we are causing in Mexico. If there wasn't a demand here then the cartels would have nothing to fight over.

los zetas have always messed around with the civilians, only that they intimidate everyone in the towns, to keep quiet. ive known of people who have been confused and taken by the zetas. and now tell me its been past 4 years, and we havent heard a word from them. yes also the same loosers put curfews in small towns to its residents, if there seen walking at night, you will forsure be picked up and beaten for a while. our state of nuevo leon has been plagued by this social cancer for already 4 years !!! i just hate we cant do normally what we would do back then, when we could be in the plaza chillin, or at night hanging out drinking. same goes for the gulf cartel, you guys made this monsters and now you cant control them.

we actually need some foreing intervention, the cartels with eventually control the country, and that is not so good for the US, having a neighbor controlled by the cartels.

I have seen this first hand and this letter is blaming the C.D.G, but everything mentioned above is actually what the Zetas are doing. I seen it and heard it from many of them. They know they are done, and are desperately burning houses and causing Chaos just to not go out without a fight.

RiseMakaveli said...

A lot of people think the Zetas are so powerful and rich, and I mean perhaps it is true.. But think about it this way, any pest that takes shelter in your house, you'll have a hard time getting rid of. Either it be rats or roaches, they are hard to exterminate not because they are powerful or strong, but because they are in the walls, infiltrating the structure and are always hiding.

I was in Monterrey some years back, reading the local newspaper about some bank robbers who killed and maimed themselves with knives and guns fighting over the loot, this is no different top sicarios always have to sleep with an eye open, watching out for underlings trying to take their positions of leadership and power. This is the law of the jungle in which they live by - eat your neighbor before he eats you, where only the fittest survive, but keeping alert for your neighbor not to eat you will eventually wear you down, those who live by the gun will eventually die by the gun.

U.S. citizens: this animal aesthetic is coming to a-soon-to-be-overpopulated border state near you. legalize all drugs. all of them: both known and yet-to-be created. expand the definition of "drugs" and legalize anything resembling a drug. suspend habeas corpus and round up, summarily execute all narcotic-based cartels, drug kingpins/dealers and all of their assorted denizens that can be found, including government officials. innocents will die, but no where near as many innocents as have already died and are dying right now as a result of the endless abomination now known as the U.S.'s "war on drugs." or, sadly since we know no one will likely do/support any of the above suggestions, get ready to live like an animal, just like they do in many places south of the border. it's going to be kill or be killed either way.
