Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

CDG Sends a Message to los Zetas

Friday, February 11, 2011 |

The following video is a message on behalf of the Gulf cartel to los Zetas, at the beginning of the video, the following words appear on the screen:

QUE ONDA PINCHE 40 APESTOSO MATA PRIMERO A TU VIEJA AQUELLA QUE TE HIZO PENDEJO, QUE NI CON ELLA PUDISTE Y SE PELO. Y FUE Y TE PUSO CON LA DEA Y DESPUES VIENES Y PELEAS CONMIGO. TE ACUERDAS LO QUE LE HICISTE A LOS QUE MATARON A TU HERMANO? BUENO ESO ES LO QUE VOY A HACERTE A TI Y AL CHUECO MAL HECHO DE TU HERMANO 42. ATTE. R1”.

"Whats up fucking 40? You smelly bastard, why don't you kill you're wife, who is making a fool out of you. You couldn't satisfy her, so she went and talked to the DEA and then you want to come start a fight with me? Do you remember what you did to the people who killed your brother? That is exactly what I'm going to do to you and that other crooked brother of yours, 42.
-ATTE R-1

The following images show two men executed, their heads were places so that they sat on the knees of the victims..

For several minutes, two other men also appear who are dressed in military fatigues and they pose next to the corpses, taking pictures standing next to them.

In minute 2, a hooded figure appears who has also been decapitated.

The video ends with a message to Zeta leader Heriberto Lazcano (a) El Lazca:

MIRA PINCHE LAZCANO ESTO ES LO QUE LES PASA A LOS QUE SE METEN A REYNOSA, AQUÍ ESTA LA GENTE DEL GUIA. AHORA TE DIGO YO PIPIRIJAS ENTREGAME A 40 Y 42 O QUE APARESCAN CON UN PELOTAZO EN LA CABEZA Y VEN A PEDIRME PERDON DE RODILLAS PORQUE YA VA LA MITAD DE LO QUE TE DIJE QUE TE IBA A QUITAR. NOSOTROS NO PRESUMIMOS DE VALIENTES LOS QUE PRESUMEN SON USTEDES LOS GALLOS SE CALAN PELEANDO NO HABLANDO. ATTE. CARTEL DEL GOLFO”.

Listen up Lazcano, you motherfucker. This is going to happen to all those who mess with Reynosa. Here are the people working for/in del Guia. I'm going to ask this only once: Give me 40 and 42, or let me see their bodies in the street with a bullet in the head, then some to me on your knees and beg, becasue you have already lost more than HALF of what I told you I was going to take from you. We do not presume bravery, you are the ones who assume too much and your people run like cowards, and they snitch like them as well.

Atte- C.D.G.

This is horrible! When is all this going to end?????????

What kind of animal is capable of doing these kinds of things?

Interesting that this clip has no audio. It could mean nothing, (broken mic, forgot to turn it on,etc) but it could mean that they're getting worried about voice recognition or speech pattern analysis software.

There's a new CJNG interrogation video out, too.

Wow, ok first thing first, what happened with Z40 and his wife (gf whatever she was)? Is she what caused the split? Second thing, what happened to his brother? And third, it seems like Lazca is not the one in charge or at least the one that the CDG wants dead. Everyone, including me, thought Lazca was the head of the Z, but it seems like Z40 is running the show and they are willing to let Lazca repent.. this video is going to leave a lot of questions unanswered.

Now that link was too funny haha.....couldn't stop laughing haha...

Ovemex said...

@ anon 8:00 am

The "rumors" of El Lazca and Z-40 being on the outs have been around for some time now..

There have been reports of Z-40 giving up the location of El Lazca to authorities various times. If reports and rumors are correct, it seems to be no secret that Z-40 wants to (and seems to have already) take complete control of the Z's, and is willing to do whatever it takes to get it (giving up the location of El Lazca or killing him)..

Towards the end of last year, there were alot of rumors of El Lazca meeting with CDG.

Obviously this is all "hearsay", no official word on what is really happening between Lazcano and Z-40.

is it just me or does that first guy at 0:35 look exactly like Miguel Treviño

Crazy Canuck said...

CDG are some bad ass dudes. It is my opinion that the Z's are spread too thin.

hasta la madre said...

wow, I'm impressed, I think this is the first time I've seen a narcomensaje that is actually well written.

Capo said...

You guys need to hire me as a translator, because whomever translated the message messed up, nothing about snitching and what about mis gallos peleando! Ha ha

Smurf said...

First of all,

Thank you to all who took the time to check out my blog and wrote encouraging comments here... Readers such as yourselves are a big reason why we at BB do what we do. Thank you for your support!

Second @ Capo

I left the text in spanish for that reason: in case something got lost/mixed up in translation... Instead of sitting on the sidelines and making smug remarks, why don't you simply post YOUR version of the CDG message here in the comments?

Putting down someone else's work down and not adding new info to the conversation doesn't make you "look cool" it just lets us know that you are one of those people on BB who make it their business to complain and say negative things.

Capo said...

Damn Smurf, aren't we sensative today, I love your articles, I was just joking, hence the Ha Ha in the end. Tranquilo primo, lol

ajulio said...

@ brito

Anytime brito. Let's wait and see if this pinche war ever comes to an end though.

What is the name of smurfs blogsite?

Smurf said...

I do get sensitive over my translations, they take a while and its not that I mind a correction, just help me out if I make a mistake.

LOS GALLOS SE CALAN PELEANDO NO HABLANDO

literally translated: The Roosters are pierced from fighting, not talking.

I suppose its a reference to snitches... Doesn't make much sense in any other context

Smurf said...

Sup Ajulio!

Its 3rdrockpress.wordpress.com

and un chevy frio tambien para mi otra amigo smurf..

hey man yer gettin wound up...

take it easy holmes..jajajja..

ya'll better lay off of smurfs translations ..or i am gonna start hablando espanol..

Yeah... My ego has a glass jaw, I be the first to admit it.... jajaja

Si vas a cagar el palo, minimo escribe bien, es "pueden". Just sayin'...

I used to think some of the translations here were pretty crappy, but I ain't the one actually contributing with valuable information so thumbs up to all BB reporters.

Lo siento pitufo pero está mal tú traducción. No te estoy quitando de qué les estas haciendo un servicio al público anglófono, sólo quiero alcarar algo: el autor del narcomensaje parece ser pipirijas. Porque lo dice " yo pipirijas".

Anonymous said...

That's just it smurf. You can't translate that last part literally because I won't make sense in english. It does not have anything to do with snitching. I don't know of an expression in English that is the same but it means something like "real men fight antbirds talk" or something like that. Nothing about snitching.

Anonymous said...

My take on the phrase is

LOS GALLOS SE CALAN PELEANDO NO HABLANDO

there is no literal translation for "Calan" since it is used as slang and not as a proper word.

You cannot test a roosters srength if all it does is talk is implied,
Or
"si Eres tan Gallo entrale, puro Hablar de que tan chingon eres" but they made it rhyme, so its implied.

thats my opinion though.
the literal translation is not the same as the implied translation.
Some serious fighting words

Anonymous said...

Yeah. That's a good take on the phrase. Smurf don't worry bro. Translations are hard especially if the are idioms or expressions. Keep up the good work.

Anonymous said...

No offense Ernest, but your grammar in both English and Spanish is the worst I've ever seen here. Did you graduate from high school?

LOS GALLOS SE CALAN PELEANDO NO HABLANDO

Doesn't that mean: Cockfighting Roosters(meaning macho dudes) are tested fighting not talking?

Anonymous said...

@ smurf

i don't speak spanish very well ..but i know a little about fighting chickens.they crow a lot ..but when it is time to fight they stop crowing..so it is kinda like...

roosters that are fighting ain't crowing(talking)

"L"B

EarniesWorld said...

"LOS GALLOS SE CALAN PELEANDO NO HABLANDO" is the same phrase as "DOGS THAT BARK DON'T BITE" in English. There is no literal translation and to understand the phrase you have to be from Mexico where illegal rooster fights are famous instead of dog fights.

If all of a sudden you guys think you can do a better job than Smurf, then open your own blog!

Y neta, si van a andar chingando de que la gente escribe mal, cuiden su ortografia. Ya entro otro pendejo que quiere "alcalar" algo.

@ E"S world

there are lots of places in the USA that fight chickens ..they call them game cocks /roosters...

game being an old term for being tough or ready to fight

i had one who used to fight a big tom turkey all the time ..he couldn't win but he would never quit..

it was pretty funny sometimes the turkey would just put his foot on his head and stand there looking around..

but as soon as he let up that little rooster would go right back at him

but yeah ..i think you got it pretty well right ..a barking dog don't bite ...meaning someone who talks a lot of shit ain't much for fighting

and hey there HASTA..we just tryin to help budrow

"L"B

hasta la madre said...

Can you guys get more asinine?

The phrase can be translated:

"Tough men prove themselves by fighting, not talking"

If you guys don't like "tough men" you can substitute it with "stallion", "brave men", "O.G.'s", "thugs", etc. There's probably thousands of iterations that would be unable to satisfy all of you idiots that don't appreciate the service BB does for us.

¿ortografía? Por favor. Usar palabras corrientes y después olvidarse de ponerle accento a la palabra entró ( el pretérito y no el presente del indicativo) Qué risa me das. Pero bueno. Te lo perdono. Sí quieres te enseño cómo añadir accentos profe.

The pictures speak louder than words so everybody shut-up and give Smurf a break!!!

Smurf said...

Its all good y'all... I admit I got a little wound-up and prob took Capo's remark a little more personally than I should have... But I think its great that all of us can share information, especially in regards to translation (which isn't an exact science), Sometimes I use a little creative editing because getting the point of the message across, quite often, cannot be done through literal translation. And sometimes the meaning is open to interpretation.

And 10:44 is right, those pictures speak for themselves. And the prospect of the Z having a major split among the top leadership would be quite a scenario. Who carries more weight? Lazca or Z-40? Zetas fighting Zetas...

It was only a matter of time, I didn't think that large organization that seems to be spread thinly across Mex would stay together.

This video reminds me of people that hunt game and proudly show the pictures of their kill. What's next.!!!?? When they damage and collaspe society and the economy.!!! Kill their victim, skin them, take it to a meat cutter, and freeze the meat. mount the heads in their homes, and invite people for a BBQ, OR a have a taco fiesta.!!!~

Hello-
You can decide for yourselves if this is true.
I am going to make this post in an attempt to spread the truth about what is REALLY going on. There is a group of very powerful families that control or try to control everything in this world. They ultimately worship the devil..Satan is the boss. They have been controlling America(all Presidents,Congress,Senators etc. for a long time also. They killed U.S.President John Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and many more. They have started every war in the world and financed both sides. Why? Because war is very profitable. They hate us poor people/peasants and want to kill off 90% of the world population. They believe this is the right thing to do. As they have been raised this way.Their mothers and fathers were behind Hitler. They rape their own children. These are the sickest people you can think of. AND they have a LOT of money. They control most of the money in the world. they have the technology to make hurricanes and floods..and they use it around the world to wipe out entire populations and steal countries resources. They own all the banks, T.V. media, movies, music, drug trafficking, etc. Basically any and all of everything that generates cash and gives them mind control. Media in all forms is loaded with mind control. We are talking about the DEVIL himself here. the roots go all the way to the top of the Roman Catholic Church. By the way...I do not think all Catholics are bad. I think the devil(s) are using the church in order to be worshiped by people. It is after all, why Satan was kicked out of heaven.(for wanting to be worshiped, like GOD) They are having these drug wars as a front...they take the BIG share of the profit while getting others to fight and die in their wars. It fits right in their plan to get rid of everyone. Their plan is to only keep a few of us to be their slaves. But with all this profit, and the need to keep everyone fooled..they need to launder money. When the reigning/existing cartel in Mexico refused to send their money through the banks of these Devil worshiping people; the NEW cartel was created in Mexico to declare war on the cartel that wouldn't pay them by using their banks to launder money. The American government acts like it wants to help..but they are also VERY behind it all.(U.S. politicians are bought and paid for) The cartel wars in Mexico are a front. They sent in the "rival" cartel because the existing or old cartel basically told them to F*$&-off. The history of these demon possessed nut jobs is very real and their purpose is to form one world government and control everything. They have trillions and trillions of dollars..money is no object...they want power and control of EVERYTHING! They are called the Illuminati. They own Labron James, Kobe Bryant and virtually all A-list celebrities. If a celebrity goes against them when they find out they are Satan Worshipers..they kill them. Do you really think Tupac Shakur and Michael Jackson died the way they say? Wrap aluminum foil around your I.D. and drivers license...they have traceable chips...you can be scanned walking down the street.They have the technology to listen to you talk on your cell phone right now,,even if it is off....taking the battery out is the only way they can't hear you if they want to. Same on computers.

6;32. I agree with you. What's happening in Mexico, is a process of ilimination, and pospering in the process. People terminating their own people, using one pawn against another. Let people Eliminate people, and when it's over, take their wealth. These tactics have been used all over the world by the Elites. Play one group aganist another, in these case the cartels, and when they managed to kill each other, someone comes in and takes their spoils.

Anonymous said...

Here's what I think as far as the Los Gallos se calan peleando, no hablando comment. It's more like "if you can talk the talk, then walk the walk." Kinda saying, well if you're a gallo, prove it then. Don't talk, just fight.

Anonymous said...

Wow! 6:32 You are so right on! I'm glad other people see it for what it is...
