It seems like the Mexican Marines are the only good guys in Mexico. Of course Mexico is a country of mirrors so who knows. I hope the house they raided was connected to all the bodies they've dug up in Durango.

need more intel on this story. What is going on? Is this a Federacion safehouse or Zetas? Did they find anything besides what the pictures show? House affiliated with M's, GN, Peine, Flaco, or what?
