Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

10 hurt in Nuevo Laredo Walmart grenade attack Sunday

A total of ten unidentified individuals were wounded in a grenade attack at a Walmart store in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas Sunday night, according to Mexican news accounts.

Reports say firefights erupted between local drug gangs -- probably Los Zetas and Gulf Cartel shooters -- in the city Sunday. Nuevo Laredo is considered to be a Los Zetas controlled river crossing into the US.

The attack took place just outside the store at around 2200 hrs on Avenida Reforma.  Several more individuals who were hurt in the attack went to get medical help on their own.

The Secretaria De Defensa Nacional (SEDENA), the controlling agency for the Mexican Army also told Mexican press that additional troops from Nuevo Leon would be redeployed to the city in the wake of the new attack.

In a related development, military authorities say that a top Los Zetas operative in Nuevo Laredo was killed in last Thursday's encounter between a Mexican Army detachment on patrol and an armed group travelling en convoy.

Gerardo Guerra Valdez AKA El Guerra was killed in the same gun  battle that claimed the lives of 13 Los Zetas operatives.

The Mexican Army announced today that on March 1 Gerardo Guerra Valdez, aka “El Guerra” was killed in a clash with soldiers, he was the leader of Los Zetas in the Nuevo Laredo plaza, in the state of Tamaulipas.

Guerra Valdez had been captured by Mexican authorities in June 2009 but he escaped from prison, the day he escaped ” three inmates and a visitor were killed ” a bulletin says.

“On August 2 2011 he was appointed as a leader of Los Zetas in the Nuevo Laredo plaza, after the death of Jorge Luis de la Peña Brisuelas, aka Pompin.

Nuevo Laredo, a town bordering Laredo Texas has been a bastion of Los Zetas in their struggle with the Gulf cartel to control the flow of arms and drugs in that area of ​​Mexico.

“Guerra was an active participant in all the violent and criminal activities at the border” he was among the closest and most trusted sicarios for Miguel Ángel Treviño Morales, aka El 40.

ESA ES LA FORMA DE USTEDES DE VENGARSE DEL PUEBLO, AL CUAL YA TIENEN CANSADO CON SUS MAMADAS. LOS DEL GRANADAZO FUERON USTEDES LAS ZORRAS NADIE MAS. DEJEN DE ECHARLE LA CULPA A LOS DEMÁS.

Cdg mostly people native to the area or state. Xetas half of them if not most aren't even from here; that's why they don't give a caca if the town goes to shit. Their families don't live here. Cdg is the lesser of two evils. Xetas are mostly cholos wannabes like blacks in usa. 3 months it takes a xeta from cleaning windshield's to being a comandante.

When is the Mexican army going to launch total war in Nuevo Laredo? They need a curfew from 9 PM to 6 Am and anyone caught out on the streets between those hours is marked for killing in a free fire zone. Cordon off the city and kill the rats. I would fucking bomb the goddam place with fucking B-52s if I had to.

I love seeing what Z have to say. They call themselves a cartel, but their bosses (other than Lazca, Z 40 and his brother) live in mobile homes and eat ramen noodles.. Poor bastards, they feel really good driving stolen vehicles and sleeping on the floor.

If this is true, it means that CDG was granted access through Nva. ciudad Guerrero by the military who is very active in that region. Or might mean that CDG has a lot of access through the northern Monterrey and surrounding highways. Which is also has strong zeta presence. Either way CDG seems to be gaining ground. Again, IF the above statement statement has any truth to it. Only time will tell

"If this is true, it means that CDG was granted access through Nva. ciudad Guerrero by the military who is very active in that region."

...or they could have just driven up US Highway 83, crossed in Laredo and had their "material" pre-stashed somewhere in Nvo. Laredo. That's why I would have done....

That would work in any city, but the people fighting the war rather make $, than do their job. Mexico is too corrupt, and mexican citizens don't know or don't care if the government people in charge of fighting criminals do or not.
