Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

The Last of the Shadow/CDG?

Saturday, September 15, 2012 |



When el Coss was presented to the media a reporter yelled at him asking a question "es el fin del cartel?" or "is this the end of the cartel?" Coss stood there without responding to anything, just that serious stern look, knowing that at least for him, the game was over.

The structure change in the leadership of the Gulf Cartel (CDG):

2003: Osiel Cardenas Guillen (El Duque) is arrested
2010: Ezequiel Cardenas Guillen (Tony Tormenta) is killed.
2011: Samuel Flores Borrego (Metro Tres) is killed.
September 4, 2012: Mario Cardenas Guillen (El Gordo) is arrested.
September 12, 2012: Juan Gabriel Montes (Sierra) is arrested.
September 12, 2012: Jorge Eduardo Costilla Sanchez (El Coss) is arrested.

What is next, will this be the end for CDG?

A top leader is gone but the cells of Los Metro and Los Rojos remains intact, will they die or remerged with new leadership?

Is Mario Armando Ramírez Treviño  "El Pelon" be able to position himself with anough clout to maintain crontrol of the internal conflict within the CDG and emerge as a top capo? Or will he be the next casualty or will he just fade out of the spotlight?

Only time will tell, but we will be watching!

you forgot to add "el duque" and a "s" at cardenas

It is said that principals such as Juan Mejía Gonzalez "R-1" and Rafael Cardenas Vela "El Junior" have no wish to be top bosses and are just happy to be under the command of Pelon, but that is just speculation by the powers to be.

it doesnt matter whose the next boss is, they are all gonna burn in hell

'El Junior' is in the feds right? Or, prior to that, he didn't want to be the boss? Since 2010 I've read that about Coss, he didn't want to be either, he was running and hiding with his money.

I respect him not talking in the interview, or answering questions, has dignity, but I'd be a lot more interesting if he did.

For months before he was arrested in Port Isabel Texas, Junior Cardenas was telling everybody he was going to be the next top boss of the CDG. He was pissing on everyone and running his mouth and that put him in the US feds radar and got him picked up before he became a Capo. Dont piss off the USA..

El commandante Diablo is already in prison moron so how is he gonna be in charge of.the cartel alongside el pelon

So just to get the story straight that we are all "suppose" to believe, 4-5 bodyguards got in a fire fight with the marines, they then ran TO THEIR LEADER El Coss and lead authorities there where all were arrested and nobody was killed. This sound weird to anyone else? Almost like it was set up to be this way. From what I am reading both the Rojos and Metros are intact and now at peace with each other under X20. This could be addition by subtraction for the CDG.

how could this have happened the way it did, just bizarre.....if it happened this way,it tells me CDG dont own much territory at all,or Coss was there just passing by seeing how the fellars were going.

The R's will form there own cartel as will the M's... CDG will split into 2 separate cartels...

3,500 rounds of ammo numerous bodyguards in bullet proof vests and NOT A SHOT WAS FIRED? They have reported someone collected the 5 million for snitching on his location, I BET it was one of them bodyguards or maybe all 5 that ran back to the house giving up the location? Thats a million each! WHO was the SNITCH?

The Metros took over the CDG a while back. Mario was just a figure head and really didnt run the day to day operations in Matamoros. Lino, Gringo and Metro 4 really run the show and day by day operations. Pelon is put as a figure head to keep the heat off the 3. The Mexican Government will concentrate on the figure head will the real show runners will go on with their day to day operations. The CDG is far from dead. They continue to push further west and have already taken control of the east side of Falcon Dam which was once Zeta terrority.

I agree, 3500 rounds 6 to 7 body guards and "Not even a firefight"..?? Something stinks
here. When the Z's were the strong arms for the CDG if a Golfo or Z got arrested and didn't have bail the "O.G." Z's would Storm the Police Station or for that matter the Prisons in force
with all sorts of Heavy Weapons and sometimes a
Fire Fight would last 2 or 3 hours with them springing the perpetrators 80% of the time! Even
Tony Tormenta put them off for 48 hours in two seperate firefights. I smell a rat!
