    1. Not only is it the military, it's the police, politicians taxi drivers. I knew of a politician that was being sponsored by the CT. It's all of who you know and give a helping hand to.

  10. People are always that if mexico asks for help to destroy the narco there will be someone else to supply that need. I'm one thousand percent mexican and am absolutely tired of all this bs going on in mexico. We here in the us have enough against us and these criminals are just feeding to the stereotype. We are not criminals nor do we condone any criminal activity.. I know i speak for most of us here. If anybody else wants to keep supplying dope let them. We as mexicans have the responsibility to turn any dope dealers into the police even if they are family. Honest work honest money honest living..

  11. Lol, they throw 400 kilos at the military to pass six tons. The military reports the bust and turn it over to the general. Then it disappears just like all the good citizens that have knowledge of it or act like they do. If this author thinks the Mexican Military or for that matter, the Mexican Government is striving for law and order in Mexico, let me give him some help. The Mexican Government and the Mexican Military are the biggest cartel. The just aren't the smartest. It is ok Chris, keep banging your drum though, It's ok.

  12. On the Mexican side a lot of the goverment officials, the police & military are corrupt but then what about the American side?...How are thousands of kilos of Cocaine, Marijuana & Meth smuggled? Either a lot of American goverment officials, police & the DEA are on payrolls OR are incompetent!! (About the Mexican & American Politicians, CIA plus the Elite Bankers, they are dirty & without scruples)..Illegal narcotics trade is Capitalism at its crudest.
