Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

An Interrogation of a Los Zeta's Member Aldo Rivas Torres

Friday, November 26, 2010 |

Warning, this post contains video with strong content of a man identified as Aldo Rivas that is executed after being interrogated where he talks about kidnappings and how he "kills the victims if they do not pay the ransom."


A new video shows an interrogation of a man identified as Aldo Rivas Torres, who is believed to be a member of the criminal organization Los Zetas. The video is signed by The M's.

The incident occurred in the municipality of Santiago Papasquiaro, located in Durango and it is believed that the video was recorded recently.

Four armed commandos dressed in military type uniforms point their weapons at the obvious distressed Rivas, while he details his work as a sicario where he confesses that he was receiving a monthly salary of about 15,000 and 20,000 pesos ($1,200 to $1,600 dollars).

He claims that he received direct orders from his brother Jesus Rivas Torres, who serves as an Captain in the Mexican Army, but is also involved with Los Zetas where he is the head of the organization in the village and receives a monthly salary of 500,000 pesos (about $40,000 dollars).

I was just about to give yall the headz up on this video. So what's going on? Looks to me like the military is involved in this whole mess as many had already claimed but many others did not want to admit.

Also, this guy is claiming that his brother who is a government soldier was supplying his Zeta faction weapons. What does that mean to all those who said that the majority of the weapons were coming from the U.S.?

Can somebody point to me to some good evidence of where most of their weapons are coming from?

$500,000 pesos is about $40,000 USD

$12.5 pesos / $1 USD

For us that follow the affairs of the cartel soap opera, it's more than just video, it's intel, the names, the principals, the scene, everything, rest assure more will surface in the days to come and we will fit the puzzle, in the mean time you will still be wondering why?

Who are the M's? Fuck los zetas, kill them all.

When watching the video, remember the following:
- The man is been held at gunpoint. What would you say if you were in his position?
- These are people working for the druglords. Are you going to believe them?
- He claims the army is involved. Remeber the guy the druglords are more scare of are the military.
- If there is any true to what he's saying, the people he mentions (including his brother) are already hiding by now, or sleeping in a cell.
- Finally, look at the facts, the narcs been killed and aprehended. The good guys are wining this war.

I suppose the M's are matazetas?

We all ready know that mexico is a country with little morals and it's people are uneducated. The corruption and lack of morals in mexico is why the drug cartels can operate as they do.

It's funny that mexico claims that a majority of it's citizens are catholic. I guess mass murder, extortion, kidnapping, robbery, drug dealing are part of their religion.

Damn, I didn't think there were any Z's in DGO, guess I was wrong! The M's are most likely the Muchachos or Chachos for short. I heard they went by M's, Los Muchachos, and Los Chachos.

Zetas are going down

I used to try and figure out the black and white of who was on what side but fact is there is no black and white, no clear lines. The corruption is so rampant at all levels that it cannot be contained. I'd liken it to an infection, if you cut your finger and it gets infected it is easy to identify and isolate, as opposed to an infection in the bloodstream it which runs through the whole body affecting everything. The Mexican government must be involved and I would bet money that the DEA/CIA were involved just as they were in Cambodia and the Contra scandal. As someone posted earlier it makes sense that the Mexican military has some guys who are supplying the narcos with guns, and the guns come from the US government. Based on the lack of action to secure or protect the border on the part of the US one has to wonder if they are not secretly trying to destabilize Mexico. Think about it, complete media blackout, lax border security, Merida initiative to give them more guns that find their way into the bad guys hands...maybe on purpose. Just a thought.

Los M...Mayo Zambada boys, from the Sinaloa Cartel.

The Mexican Army or Marines don't carry AR-15's or AK-47's which are the two most common rifles carried by cartel members in Mexico.

Zetas have been in Durango for a while now, they just keep a low profile because they don't want to end up like we see here. The "M" 's are probably a cell of the sinaloa cartel, sane as gente nueva or Los antrax. You can believe the non sense of the military being involved, it's ment to confuse gullible people and crest more havoc. The military is putting huge pressure on the big honchos.

Sure the guns are comming from the military, home made ak made from bent receivers, ar15's made from aluminum billets missing some vital parts such as sights. Fyi the mex military mostly uses h&k products.

While back i said that the Zetas were in Santiago and like 2people thought i was lying, that it was under control of la federation. Theres your proof. Zetas are staring to get wiped out and los mayos and chapos are getting even stronger in DGO. Theres a Zambada in charge of a municipio very close to santiago. Young dude,and they say he's calm and a good person. Theres alot more airplane activity now, and weed is growin like crazy.Think he's a nephew or cousin in the Zambada clan. Wont say were but if your around that area you will know -T1

As to where the guns are coming from, the overwhelming majority are coming from the US. This is a stat supported by the DEA. While some grenades are from the US, most are coming from Honduras or China, but the main weapons are from the good ol' US of A. The DEA helps Mexico trace the weapons and used to post derial numbers online.

As for some of the conspiracy theorists, you have got to be kidding me! How does the US benefit from this activity in any way?

Anonymous said...

If you think the DEA/CIA arent involved try reading through this testimony then read Dark Alliance for some background in their involvement in money laundering and arms trading. The US smuggled guns from eastern bloc nations back in the 80's so why would they not do it again?http://www.idfiles.com/rbdepo.htm

Here is more telling info

Here is some info on laundering that implicates IBC banker Dennis Nixon and others as well

It's larger than it seems and it has happened before people, time to back up and look at the big picture.

would be nice if you bloggers would post what type of execution takes place. Wouldn't want to stumble upon a beheading or a dismemberment.

The M's aka Los Anthrax is a cell from the Sinaloa Cartel specifically under Mayo Zambada's control. In the beginning of the video it said "We DON'T rape, don't kidnap or kill innocent people..we are against the scum of the nation, Los Zetas. Weather they are civilians or from the government, we are going to terminate them."-Los Ms

I also mentioned away back about the cooperation between Zetas and the military in Santiago.they are also posted in La Purisima & Tepehuanes. Fucken kidsare recruited and are doing the dirty work for these bastards. They are coked up and pointing out anyone with any wealth of signs of money (beware you gulible travelers.)In Tepehuanes and san Jose their are exbangers hiding from the us law for murder (JAUQUEZ..latin kink from Aurora Il)) and have established gangs for the zetas. If you owna house down there am sure they will pay a visit and steal your shit. The eyes of the zeta need to be disposed of without them there are no zetas even if it means to exterminate family friends and family.

more than likely Federacion, El Peinado's armed wing Los Chachos. I have never heard of just Los M's, but I hear lately El Chapo has been upping his armed security forces, so this could be a new crew.

Let me get this straight? Los M's, Los Anthrax, Los Chachos, La Gente Nueva, are all part of Sinaloa's Cartel?

Sierra1 said...

those are not by any means el mayos men these guys have been there for a long time they are the ones that control the plaza. These are the remnants of "El Leon's" people. For the one that mentioned the town's you cannot be more far off....obviously Teps is the municipality but if you knew that area you would see those towns are not the ones. Just hope for this to end, the ransom the merchants pay for protection regardless of who is in charge of the plaza. FYI the m's have also been referred to Mingo's. Rumor also has it those are not actual Zetas they are just the previous cartel that refuse to give up their turf.

The Sinaloa Cartel has several groups of hitmen and limpiadores....So it could be another fraction they have in Durango...Los Anthrax's el Chinos people...Gente del Ondeado M1, Gente del Macho Prieto el 14 but they roam Sonora and Sinaloa...Gente Nueva is people in Chihuahua mostly and El Flacos people control that movement under direct orders...But regardless el Chapo has some serious control in Durango but not all...It's still disputed with people that are loyal to Los Beltranes but they are slowly swaying over are exterminated..El Chapo has several ties with families there who have joint ventures with the Sinaloa cartel..But there has always been small fractions of Zetas roaming around they just don't make so much noise because they are severly out numbered there. Chihuahua has some Z's running around as well but again they roam around very quietly because gente nueva will exterminate them...For the people who say why post this video he didn't deserve it, well he admitted to being involved in 6 kidnappings that could have ended the same way. Him pulling the trigger, why I don't condone taking his life as only god can judge. One less scum bag on earth to extort or kidnapp innocent people...

The anonymous USA Anglo idiot who wrote this below has it all wrong!

'We all ready know that mexico is a country with little morals and it's people are uneducated. The corruption and lack of morals in mexico is why the drug cartels can operate as they do. It's funny that mexico claims that a majority of it's citizens are catholic. I guess mass murder, extortion, kidnapping, robbery, drug dealing are part of their religion.'

It is the US that has a population that lacks morals and has an uneducated and militaristic population that supports its military screwing up every country across the planet. Not Mexico, Pendejo! Go look in the mirror, Dope.

If your from DGO, then everyone knows that los muchachos run shit in DGO, from el Salto to Canelas. El GQ, or El Peindado is the person in control of most of that area, there are Zetas in DGO, but remember, they are quickly exterminated. Anthrax operate only in Sinaloa, and Gente Nueva opertate in Chihuahua, Los Chachos operate in DGO, Nayarit, Morelos, Guerrero, and fighting in Nuevo Leon. They are on of the first armed wings, and actually started in the beginning with Juarez Cartel. They broke away when El Mayo stopped operating with Fuentes and cemented his bond with Federacion and El Chapo.

I heard El Flaco reports to El Peinado, and Los Anthrax are run by El Peidado's youngest brother. Rumor is La Barie killed one of El Peinado's brothers back in Nuevo Laredo. Who know's though. Too many guys to keep up with!
