Marines recover Gulf cartel seized ranch, arrest 12

Mexican Marines operating in Tamaulipas' coastal area south of Matamoros recovered a ranch which had been appropriated by members of the Gulf Cartel.

A Naval Ministry (Semar) press release reported that the incident occurred at Rancho El Zamora, located 43 kilometers southwest of the town of La Pesca,Tamaulipas.

Thanks to information received from an anonymous tip, the Marines were made aware that the ranch employees had been expelled from the grounds and the property taken over by heavily armed men.

The Marines stormed the ranch and arrested ten people who claimed to members of the Gulf Cartel. Also seized were one vehicle, 10 rifles, one handgun, one hand grenade, 55 ammunition magazines, and 2,437 rounds of ammunition.

In a separate incident, Marines arrested two Gulf cartel members in Valle Hermoso, Tamaulipas.

According to military sources the two men were stopped for suspicious behavior. A search of the vehicle resulted in the seizure of 2 rifles, 920 rounds of ammunition, four 40mm grenades, 47 magazines, $15,000 pesos, $500 dollars (U.S.), Gulf Cartel labeled clothing, communication equipment, and 10 pieces of gold jewelry.

  2. STILL JUST PLAYING FOOTSIES TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE THEY ARE REALLY DOING SOMETHING! I CALL BULLSHIT!

    ALL THESE STORIES IF YOU LOOK THEY ONLY FIND OLD DIRTY BROKEN FIREARMS AND THEY THROW IN A FEW ODDS AND ENDS AND A VEHICLE OR 2 TO MAKE IT ALL LOOK LEGIT... BULLSHIT!

    WHY NOT CAPTURE OR KILL COSS? LAZCA? Z40 AND 42? CHAPO?

    THIS LAST 5 YEARS MEXICO HAS SHOWN THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS COMPLETELY CONTROLLED BY THE CARTELS AND THEY DO WHAT THEY ARE TOLD... CHAPO GUZMAN RUNS MEXICO AND HE HAS FOR YEARS NOW THAT IS WHY HE HAS BEEN ABLE TO REMAIN FREE DOING WHAT EVER HE WANTS FOR MORE THAN A DECADE AFTER WALKING OUT OF A MAXIMUM SECURITY PRISON... IT IS SAD THAT SO MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE WHAT EVER THE CORRUPT CRI,INAL MEXICAN GOVERNMENT TELLS THEM...

    MEXICO JUST MAY BECOME A FAILED COUNTRY BEFORE ITS ALL SAID AND DONE AS I SEE NO WAY OF THINGS EVER CHANGING BECAUSE THE CARTELS WILL NEVER RELINQUISH THE POWER THEY HAVE HELD NOW FOR DECADES... THEY DONT DARE TAKE OVER THE COUNTRY FULLY BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT WOULD BRING HEAT FROM OTHER COUNTRIES SO THE REMAIN CALLING THE SHOTS FROM THE OUTSIDE AND THAT IS WHY WE HAVE WATCHED THIS FIASCO HAPPENING FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS WITH NO PROGRESS AT ALL IN MAKING THE CARTELS WEAKER QUITE THE CONTRARY THINGS ARE ONLY GETTING WORSE IN MEXICO...

    I KNOW OF BOY SCOUT TROOPS IN THE U.S. THAT COULD HAVE TAKEN OUT EVERY SINGLE CRIMINAL CARTEL MEMBER WITHIN 2 YEARS AND HERE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THIS 5 YEARS LATER WITH NO END IN SIGHT! THAT SHOULD MAKE IT CLEAR TO ANYONE WITH AN I.Q. ABOVE A ROCK THAT THE CARTELS RUN MEXICO AND THE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT DOES WHAT IT IS TOLD WHILE STILL PUTTING ON THESE PATHETIC CHARADES TO MAKE IT LOOK AS IF THEY ARE REALLY DOING SOMETHING WHEN THE REALITY IS THE CARTELS HAVE ONLY GOTTEN STRONGER...

    DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY THE BODIES WILL CONTINUE TO PILE UP UNTIL AN OUTSIDE COUNTRY DECIDES TO DO SOMETHING TO INTERVENE ON BEHALF OF THE GOOD AND INNOCENT PEOPLE OF MEXICO THAT ARE BEING VICTIMIZED. THE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT IS KEEPING OTHER COUNTRIES FROM GETTING INVOLVED ON THE ORDERS OF CHAPO GUZMAN HIMSELF, IF OTHER COUNTRIES WERE TO BE ALLOWED TO HELP MILITARILY THEN THE GIG WOULD BE UP AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHY CALDERON HAS REFUSED TO ALLOW THE U.S. TO TAKE MILITARY ACTION ON MEXICAN SOIL, IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PRIDE ETC IT IS BECAUSE CHAPO GUZMAN HAS GIVEN STRICT ORDERS TO NEVER ALLOW AMERICAN TROOPS INTO MEXICO...

    UNTIL THE MEXICAN PEOPLE WAKE UP AND SMELL THERE COFFEE THE WORLD WILL CONTINUE TO WATCH BUT FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN THERE ARE SO MANY CRIMINALS IN MEXICO THAT THE LAW ABIDING GOOD PEOPLE IS A VERY, VERY, VERY SMALL NUMBER SO ITS JUST BUSINESS AS USUAL...

    THE U.S. HAD BETTER FIGURE OUT HOW TO KEEP THAT MADNESS CONTAINED SOUTH OF THE BORDER BUT FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN WITH ALL THE INCOMPETENCE THE U.S. WILL WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE AND MANY MORE GOOD AMERICANS HAVE BEEN KILLED BEFORE THEY FINALLY PULL THEIR THUMBS OUT OF THEIR ASSES AND DO SOMETHING... THEY HAVENT EVEN BOTHERED TO FIX THE BROKEN FENCE LINES ON THE BORDER! LET ALONE DOING ANYTHING ELSE PRO ACTIVE TO HELP CONTAIN THOSE MONSTERS THAT ARE TERRORIZING MEXICO...

    I SEE GROSS NEGLIGENCE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BORDER... IN THE MEAN TIME MANY MORE GOOD PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE KILLED...

  7. Comments and points of view are getting narrower and more extreme everyday. How can you generalize an entire nation?? The last ones to do that were the Nazi´s. Every comment here reaks of ignorance on the surface, racist in the core. You guys who wrote here don´t know shit. This is from someone that lives in Mexico.

  11. This whole war on drugs is just crap!!! Okay, let's see this on a goverment perspective. The government has a tree of authority, obviuosly begining with the president and vice president and so on. What happens if the president is killed? He is replaced by the vice president. What happens if he is killed? They will vote in who will take his place. The point is that it is the same thing with the cartels! It is so ignorant to say that they are winning because of all of the kingpins they have either captured or killed.

    It just makes things worse for that particular area in which the kingpin has fallen, because they are now vulnerable, cause they are fighting internally to see who is going to take the throne. But they will decide and here we go again. New boss, same game, being played over and over.

    It is obvious this war scene is for el chapo. Proved 100% that calderon is opening the ground for chapo. Opening up the field so chapo can move in and control all of the border and mexico. It cannot be more obvious, almost seems like a joke.

    It gets me pissed off the see obama throwing money to situation when calderon is probably giving a percentage to his partner, el chapo. Everyone open your eyes! This is going nowhere. God bless.

    Are things not "Extreme" in Mexico? We don't know "shit?" Please enlighten us on how we should be thinking. Like Germany spread into every country surrounding Europe... isn't that what Mexico is doing? Setting up shop from Pole to Pole... You say people on this thread have the same mentality as Nazi's??? How so... What is Mexico if not exactly like the SS. The gruesome grip the cartels have on your nation and its people. The majority of your people are unwilling or to scared to stand against the cartels/hitler. Standing at the side lines and not doing a thing about it is almost as bad as participation. The only way your going to win this war is IF your government bows out and gives full control to the United States.

    FYI, I am not a racist by any stretch of the imagination. I have friends from all different backgrounds. However, I will say this. Mexico is doing a good job at branding themselves as a cowardly law breaking nation.

    No offense intended.

  15. A deal has been made. Calderon needs El Chapo take back control of mexico's underworld. Back to a somewhat milder climate. The drugs will move through Mexico, always have always will.

    The Zetas screwed everything up with their openly brutal violent attempts to take over. It has drug the entire population of Mexico into the toilet., a population held hostage in it's own country.

    The need is for Los Zetas to be wiped off the earth. Chapo will then go back to the old ways of moving the drugs and releasing the people of Mexico from these animals called Zetas. I've said this for weeks.

    Now? A new focus on Zetas announced today. Ha ha. What a beautifully written script. Lazcano obviously didn't die last month in Monterrey but he's on the run.

    You don't become #60 on Forbes richest list and take shot from anyone. Chapo is the man and he will emerge from this garbage on top. Mark my words.

    Just .02 cents from a gringo.

  16. ALL OF THE CARTELS NEED TO BE EXTERMINATED FROM THE EARTH, THOSE THAT CONDONE ANY OF THE CARTELS ARE IGNORANT AND A BIG PART OF THE PROBLEM...

    THE ONLY WAY THAT MEXICO WILL BE SAVED FROM ITSELF IS IF THE U.S. TAKES FULL MILITARY CONTROL...

    ITS PATHETIC THAT NOT EVEN THE MEXICAN MILITARY CAN BE TRUSTED! WHY DO MEXICANS SELL THEIR COUNTRY OUT FOR SO CHEAP?

    If the cartels are hitler then who is the united states? That is probably the worst analogy on here. Nice try though....

  19. Your generalization that all mexicans are evil, corrupt, scared and unwilling to fight the cartels and your point of view is what I compared to the Nazi´s vilianization of all Jews and there subsecuent mass killing of them based on these beliefs.
    When Americans say fight back, get guns you don´t know shit because these guys - the drug cartels - are out in convoys of 20 to 30 vehicles. They all carry body armour, which is illegal to own in Mexico, are comprised of groups of eight individuals which make up each enforcement cell, out of each cell you got one guy that carries a 5.7 with armour piercing rounds and 10 clips- he shoots the cops. Another guy that´s the designated grenade thrower which has 8 to 12 grenades on him, and they also carry long rifles AR´s or AK´s with at least 5 30 round clips each. Each cell has 2 vehicles for the 8 guys. So do the math, a 40 vehicle convoy that gets called and rings your doorbell at 4 in the morning because your wealthy are you going to unload a 16 shot Berreta and risk your whole family getting killed?? It is superior numbers and superior fire-power, when will this stop, when Mexican mothers get tired of their sons getting killed and refuse to let them sign up with the cartels, and when they can no longer procure weapons and ammunition and tactical gear. All of which comes from the US.
    Travel all over the world and see who is vilafied, the US is. There are still good law abiding people in Mexico, but the ones that have the spotlight is the minority bad ones. Let them all get killed and leave the decent folks alone. And yeah ¨standing on the side lines and not doing a thing about it is almost as bad as participation¨ that is so fucking stupid I won´t go into detail tearing that apart.

  20. '...the incident occurred at Rancho El Zamora, located 43 kilometers southwest of the town of La Pesca,Tamaulipas.'

    La Pesca had a growing tourist trade at one time since it is a very pretty area. Here is some from wikitravel about tourism here...

    'La Pesca is a town in Tamaulipas, Mexico, on the Gulf coast about halfway between Matamoros and Tampico, just north of the mouth of the Rio Bravo. As the name might suggest, it's well known for it's sport fishing, both in the Gulf and on the Rio Bravo, but there's also a long sandy beach about 2 kilometers east of town, stretching north from the lighthouse on Punta Piedra. Each year around the Easter week, as many as 50,000 people descend on the town for Spring Break, flooding the hotels and camping on the beach. Outside of Easter week, and the Christmas season, the town and beach can be very uncrowded and sedate, especially off of the weekends.

    The state of Tamaulipas has long-term plans to develop La Pesca into an upscale resort area attractive to foreign tourists (though these plans have been in the works for a long time and its hard to say when or if they will be accomplished)...

    For Americans or other tourists coming from the United States looking to try road tripping in Mexico, La Pesca is a great first step, an easy 4 hour drive south from Brownsville, Texas.'

  22. The thing that throws me about this is that the government is waging an all out war on the Zetas. The CDG is too. Why is the government busting an alli's balls. Oh, I forgot, this is Mexico!!!!!

  23. Texas has 4 of the 7 fasting growing cities in the US. Throughout the "Great Recession" Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, and Houston have boomed in every area (jobs, housing, income and growth). Youth and immigrants are these cities keys and the immigrants I am referring to are educated ones. The ones that challenge us for our jobs.

    Texas is boss in the smuggling routes now. The CDG runs the deepest south corridor of the Rio Grande or Rio Bravo. This is priceless for routes through Houston and on to the south, and east coast. Nuevo Laredo is the next plaza and the Zetas have that and up to Padres Negros. San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas seem almost down the street. This is why everyone wants the Zetas out. It use to all be CDG. The next plaza up the river is Ojinaga. The Juarez Cartel had it forever but it is my understanding that Sinaloa has run it for the last 5 years, and this is probably true. It is the only uncontested plaza along the Rio Grande and you never hear anything about it. It is certainly not big enough for all of Sinaloa's action but it is key because of the convenience of passing loads to the midwest and upper east coast. Juarez is used by both Sinaloa and the Juarez cartels and is key for shipment through Albuquerque, Denver, North Texas, the midwest and upper east coast.

    Y'all know most of this, but my point is, what is going on in Mexico is a political battle. Calderon wants to assist his favored cartels to access as much of these corridors as possible so that it weakens his parties opposition. His group can never overtake the opposition and all their plazas however, when the time does come to negotiate before or after he leaves office, his favored cartels will have the upper hand for a bigger piece of the pie. This meaning he, his family, and associates retire in Europe more wealthy than you and I could ever imagine.

    His entire plan has worked masterfully. He has stayed on task and literally done nothing for Mexico other than make sure his goal is complete. I will be watching the grand finally in 2012. We will not hear the truth for 5 years. I do suspect he will sell El Chapo down the river as a ploy to be Mexico's hero as he walks away with all of Mexico's money and we in the US will applaud him. Some of us that is.

    All of Mexico's past presidents have done this. It is sad that all of their money leaves every 6 years.

    TRC

  28. All of u stupid americans talking shit saying mexicans are evil are really fucking retarted. Thats why mexicans are doing there job unlike u coward americans that just read about shit and dont do anything instead of taking action. Americants are too cowards to even go down there and visit anymore. Keep talking americans thats all that ur good at.

  29. Damn, why would we go visit a war zone. To get kidnapped, held hostage, and wait on a crooked police force to never come.

    What the hell, 8:33 pm. I love Mexico and the Mexican people. But I like my life and it has nothing to do with being a coward. I have good sense.

    I hope in 2012, when Mexico has a leader that doesn't like the drama of this war and peace comes, Mexico and the US get back what they once had.

    Remember, the US has a bunch of returning veteran from current wars. They are very young and gung ho. Do not take their voice as speaking for all Americans. I love Mexico, the people, the culture and the beauty. There are hate mongers in every culture including the US. Unfortunately ours are very outspoken and think they speak for everyone. I try to do my best never to insult any culture, but I do go after my own when they are out of line.

    You are looking at one photo that reveals a small corner of the face in unknown lighting conditions but you're in such a hurry to be seen as a stupid racist that you post these comments.

  31. Let's see? Half the world is now a war zone of some kind of another, is it not? Mexico is far far away not one of the worst of these areas yet, so most people do continue to travel and YES, even live..... pretty much normal lives in Mexico.

    BB tries to give readers the complete opposite impression though. That's just wrong! Where were all the Anglo BB commentators way back before US intervention into making Mexico fight a drug war for the US government began? Did they really care about Mexico's problems then? Do they really care about Mexico's real problems now? I don't really think that they much do. Many are simply cheerleaders from the side for yet another US war.

  32. its just crazy the amount of cartels getting filthy rich sending drugs to the us...if i was the mexican police i would let the shipments go all the way to the border and let the us police deal with it their side ..no way would i risk getting killed or my family killed just to stop a shipment going to uncle sam..let uncle sam sort it his side of the border....
