Mexican Army bags 3 bad guys including Los Zetas plaza leader

A Los Zetas plaza leader and two other operatives were killed in a gunfight with a unit of the Mexican 6th Military Zone in Cerralvo municipality, Nuevo Leon Wednesday morning, according to Mexican press accounts.



The leader, identified only by his alias El Pato or The Duck,  was aboard a Toyota SUV on a rural road near Presa Nogalitos when the gunfight took place, at around 1015 hrs. 

Following the gunfight, soldiers seized one AR-15 rifle, one AK-47 rifle and a 9mm pistol.

Cerralvo is 100 kilometers northeast of Monterrey city and is on Mexico Federal Highway 54 which  runs from Monterrey  to Ciudad Mier in Tamaulipas.  Los Zetas gangs have in the past used areas along roads approaching Tamaulipas' border cities as staging areas, logistical bases and rest camps for their shooters in Tamaulipas.

"As honor a la patria, mata un Zeta" We should start a trust fund where Mexican Soldiers get a couple hundred dollars for every Z leader they kill.. I love waking up to these kinds of news. I don't know why anyone would want to join the dirty Z's.....

@6:54 the bad guys and zeta

i think theres been a change a game the true narcos aren't the bad guys unless they kidnapping

i may be wrong but besides being traitors to Mexican Armed Forces the zeta don't deal with the Colombians like rest of the Cartels and are developing all their own shit throughout CA/SA which is going to create more rich monsters. so i believe that the powers that be in this world want to "nip it in the bud" and focus on zeta and give others a chance to adopt some morals and purge their ranks of the psychos and maybe even change a face or two like Chapos

But you know why someone would like to join CDG or CDS? They're all fucked up psychos, all of them. It's crazy to believe one cartel is better than others in the end.

Errr,i thought you join a cartel because there is absolutely no other way to make money?
You know,maybe if there was legitimate jobs to be had and a decent wage to take care of family and children maybe we may not have so many joining cartels?I would fuckin join one if there was no other way to make money,but then again that also takes balls,which a lot of you people wouldn't know about.

Its all a plot to make chapo look like the good guy, chapo makes the zetas look bad by doing massacres and blaming it on them. since chapo is somehow related to Calderon its easier to send the army with more public support and attack zetas for chapo and weaken them. Chapo never fights head on, he doesnt have balls but he gets good help, well when pan is out if pri goes in he can buy some of the govt yet anothe part will be helping zetas too

I was not talking about anything before the point of choose. All about that thinking that one cartel would be better to society than other. Mexico got to get rid of them totally.
IMO it needs change in whole country in very many aspects.

About balls, you'll find your own balls in your mouth with cartels especially when you're starting it from 0.

Twenty nine Palms, CA una base de entrenamiento de las fuerzas armadas americanas, y te aseguro que tú no estás ahí. A esa base entran puros batallones de las.fuerzas armadas a entrenarse antes de salir a la zona de guerra. Se entrena ahi y en Ft. Irwin, CA. Soy veterano de la 82 división de paracaidistas servi con los white falcons, no nombres nuestras bases si no eres veterano, por que tu ignorancia te delata.

compas, I want to let you know that I for one am not a chappitos nut sac, but I would prefer to exterminate the z's since they are pretty much the lowest form of life in this planet. Cowards that kill citizens on a bus and extort working people need to be used for fertilizeer you notice how green it is in Durango.

I have run across a couple of z's. whipped the shit out of one before he ran for his buddies, by then I was GONE.... (I wanted to keep my head) Fat puto from Monterry( by the University) U remember ...Jan. 3, 2012 Fucken pussies

The Zeta's are deserters and betrayed their own country because of their greed. These and all of the other greedy cartels must be eradicated.

For all the innocent children they killed

All must die because they are thy scum of
