December 3, 2010, naked bodies of three decapitated and castrated men were thrown from a vehicle outside the offices of the newspaper “El Debate de los Calentanos”, just a few blocks away from PRI’s very own mayor, Juanchi Gustavo Adolfo Quiñones.
Along with the bodies, a message was left in green paper, “This is going to happen to all those who support La Familia Michoacana”. For god sakes, after so many times of reading the same shit over and over, one can only conclude that this people are idiots with the mentalities of a 3rd grader, feeding into the endless cycle of you do, I do.
The bodies remain unidentified..
Warning, Strong Images!!!
This people, don't they know that none of this is going to help them, in any way. They are not achieving a single thing. It does not scare the opposing cartel, they'll just turn right around and do it back to them. It doesn't scare the citizens, the citizens are so numbed out and used to this shit that it doesn't affect them like before. The tactic of "Calentar Plazas" is a never ending cycle and a bad business option.
I know a lot of the readers here have already read about the tactics being used in this war, specially by the Zetas, the Cockroach tactic as I like to call it, Calentar la Plaza.
Calentar la Plaza - An opposing cartel, timidly scurries into opposing territory, remain hidden until the small hive is strong enough to start striking the city/town in certain key areas, causing a screen of panic and chaos. Since the cartel invading has no business in the area, they don't really care how much attention it gets, in fact that is their main goal. After murdering and shooting police, the reaction from the government is, send out more soldiers, or if soldiers are already in the area, their goal is to get them on edge or even to fiend for revenge.
See, the cartel in charge of the area has no option but to keep "working", regardless of how heated up the Plaza is, they need to be in certain points in the city to keep moving the drugs out and the money in, and since the areas, this far in the game, aren't really that secret anymore, they're a lot more exposed. It's hard for them to keep a low profile, that's why we see a lot of patches when it seems like only CDG keep falling, or X cartel members.. Because opposing cartels, like Zetas will use the cockroach tactic. It's like i've always said, yes some Cartels are very strong and have a lot of power, but others are not, reason why they're not exterminated is the same reason why even new mansions tend to have pests. They are good at hiding in holes, it's a pain in the ass getting each one of them out.
