Looks like CDG/Allies are hitting up Zetas home base. If it contras, there would be pics and all kinds of news coverage.

When will the war end??

Three of these individuals killed at Super Plus Carmen were US Citizens. FBI is now involved. They lived in Laredo, TX and apparently owned the business. They were known as very respectable and kind men. What a shame that no one can operate any kind of business in Mexico without falling prey to corruption.

Are these Zetas getting killed? If so, wonderful. Kill another bunch today and tomorrow. Keep doing it until these vermin are extinct.

I always loved living in Nuevo Laredo and Laredo in the early 1990's . I remember hanging around those streets . Times have changed and I can only imagine the regular civilians ( the elderly , women and children ) being caught in the crossfire .

I hate to say it,but what better way could you heat the place up,kill US citizens and business owners.Cant see it being Z who killed them but you never know?I could see it being CDG,they been getting really naughty in the things they are prepared to do.Who knows could be completely wrong?

I say bullshit. Anybody running a beer joint at ground zero in zeta headquarters knows exactly what is going down and is either in on it or paying hefty extortion. No innocent/uninvolved business owner could ever exist at that location unhindered, they sure as hell wouldn't be hanging around there.
