I was in Cuernavaca in 1999, at a relatives home, that was (to me, as a 15 year old) was in the middle of the jungle, completely idyliic and peaceful, I would love to go back. It's a shame it has seen such ugly narco violence, but it seems it has been better for the last 5 months, ever since La Barbie got arrested. Or am I mistaken?

I wonder what the operating capacity/operational strength of CPS is. Nothing like Sinaloa, CDG, or Zeta's as far as numbers, that's easy, more like CAF at this point, after all the splits and splintering and arrests. I think cartels should go back to quietly getting rid of people, and leave all this tortured/narco message bodies left in the street behind. I mean, they are the PR masterminds right? People don't want to see bodies on the street, and they don't champion one cartel over another, they just want to be left alone and live lifes safely.

I get the impression that CPS and Los Pelones are at best, glorified drug dealers. They are no where near the muscle they once had when they were part of the CDS. Otherwise LP wouldn't be stealing cars and CPS wouldn't be relying on an army of 13-year-olds to do their killing, when other groups are attracting former military officers to come and work for their cartels.

I've pretty much written off El H at this point as a desperate underling. How far the mighty have fallen.

and BTW... J, I heard about the large seizure of cocaine in Sonora, but as of yesterday I couldn't find any pictures to go along with the text. If you see any, please drop a link in this thread. It be much appreciated.

I agree with Smurf the only strong cartels at this point would be Sinaloa and Los Zetas, the rest of the cartels are a shell of their former selves

Smurf, AFN Tijuana still has the story on the front page, with really good pictures. The direct link from afn are always long and ugly, but here it is. That's a lot of product,probably at least 200 was for Arizona, the rest for mid west/California distributors.
