DEA warns of "Circle of Hell" in Mexico

Translated by Otis B Fly-Wheel for Borderland Beat from an El Debate article

Subject Matter: Recent violence in Sinaloa
Recommendation: No prior subject matter knowledge required

The country recently recorded its highest number of murders in a month for the last 20 years.


They found the bodies of the Martinez children in bloody soil, curled up next to their parents in a leased hut. Officials believe the six member family was massacred by Los Zetas, because they suspected that the father of the family had played a role in an attack by a rival gang in which a member of Los Zetas died.





The event leaves on the table the strategy without warning of the drug cartels, who are experiencing splits and wars for control of territory in much of Mexico. The country recorded its highest number of murders in a month in at least 20 years.

The violence has even surpassed the darkest days of the war on drugs launched by predecessors. "It has acquired the proportions of the circle of hell that could appear in "Dante's version of Hell",said Mike Vigil, former director of International Operations for the US Drug Enforcement Agency and author of the book "Deal".

"His strategy was to only go for the capo, El Chapo, of course that is not the way to do it , you know, because of the "Hydra Effect", you cut off a head and three more appear. "There are weak institutions, weak rule of law, weak justice, huge corruption, especially in the municipal and state police forces, all contributing to growing violence.

In the first five months of 2017 there were 9916 murders throughout the country, an increase of around 30 percent compared to the 7638 killed in the same period last year. In 2011, the bloodiest year of the war on drugs, the figure for the same period between January and May was 9466.


In some places, the bloodbath has accompanied the rise of the CJNG and rupture of the formerly dominant Sinaloa cartel in factions, faced after the arrest of capo Joaquin El Chapo Guzman, extradited in January to the United States.

At least 19 people were killed late last month in battles over the territory between the son of Guzman, his brother and former allies in the western state of Sinaloa, according to investigators.

The northern state of Chihuahua, at the border with the United States, at least 14 people were killed last week in gunfire between armed men from Sinaloa and the gang known as La Linea.

In the oil city of Caotacoalcos, in the Gulf of Mexico, Veracruz Governor Miguel Angel Yunes said that the assassination of an important hit man in late June, led Los Zetas to kill the entire Martinez Family: Clemente, his wife, Marimana, and his sons Jocelin aged 10, Victor Daniel, 8, Angel 6, and Nahomi 5. All of them died in a house where they washed cars for a dollar each.

"They had nothing, not even furniture, they slept on the floor", said grandmother Flora Martinez sobbing. " They had nothing, I do not understand why they did that to my children. They are innocent, they do not know anything".

For years it was understood that Los Zetas were untouchable in this part of the state. All you have to do is ask Sonia Cruz, who son was killed in Coatzacoalcos in July of 2016, in a case that remains unsolved.

The electoral victory of Yunes, who last year became the first opposition Governor in a traditional fiefdom of the PRI, could have broken old alliances between criminal networks and corrupt officials.

The new Governor has shown a certain willingness to pursue Los Zetas: the local leader of the cartel known as Commander H, allegedly ordered the massacre of the Martinez family, and was arrested a few days later.



Yunes said the man has been operating in Coatzacoalcos since 2006 with absolute freedom and accused members of the business sector in the city as acting as a front, pretending to be the owner of goods that actually belonged to the trafficker.

Raul Ojeda Banda, a local anti-crime activist said that some were forced to participate in the plot and that he knew that in some cases they were coerced and or threatened.

Violence in the area has also been aggravated by the incursions of the CJNG, and other pressures that have threatened key sources of income for the Zetas.

Part of Commander H's business model involved large scale kidnapping for quick bailouts. Among the targets were local oil workers or Central American migrants, who were tortured by members of the cartel to obtain payments from their relatives in the United States.

However, the Zetas kidnapped so many local people that those who could moved out of the city, and those who stayed began to block their neighbourhoods at night to keep the kidnappers out.

Low oil prices depressed the sector, implying that there were fewer energy workers to kidnap and then there were fewer migrants moving through. Donald Trumps electoral victory in the United States deterred some from attempting to reach the US, while some avoided Veracruz for fear of being attacked.

The majority of them were assaulted, and only the lucky ones were not, said priest Joel Ireta Munguia, head of the Coatzacoalcos migrant shelter run by catholic church. He estimated that the number of Central Americans passing through the city has reduced by two thirds. The wave of violence has also reached regions that have long been considered quiet.

It is believed that the CJNG has allied with a Sinaloa cartel faction in a war for the city of Los Cabos and in the nearby port of La Paz in the State of Baja California Sur.

Dismembered bodies, heads cut off and clandestine graves have become almost routine in these previously quiet tourist areas. Dwight Zahringer, born in Michoacan and living in a luxury Los Cabos neighbourhood, said he recently found a victim at the entrance to his sub division.

"It was more like a message that drug traffickers wanted to deliver, like saying we can go inside your Beverly Hills and leave dismembered bodies at your door", Zahringer said, "I'm from Detroit, we are accustomed to seeing delinquency, but heads left in ice coolers, that's a little extreme".

    4. 9:58 The quite applicable concept applies to the mexican federal government, that greenlights the governors shenanigans in exchange for their support, like epn did with fidel herrera beltran, rodrigo medina, miguel angel osorio chón, yarrington and viejidio cantu, javier duarte de ochoa, the moreiros, among others from the past like manlio fabio beltrones "la secre", and Manuel cavazos lerma, mentioned as drug trafficking money launderers by the US that did not dare pursue the matter, as in the case of "Semion Mogilevitch, top russian mafioso mobster and the only man the FBI has ever taken of their 10 MOST WANTED POSTER without killing or aprehending him", and a Felix Sater, russian mobster and ex american con who has been getting away with shit because he is a FBI informant"
      All the government's involved (US and Mexico) need is "some plausible evidence" and Voilá all over again, a patsie, or two or three, MUCHOS!!! WHAT BETTER THAN THE MEXICAN NARCOS???

  5. Go back to the old ways, assume the drug trade will happen, select a few capos, carve up the geographic areas, let them clean up the area, do business, and leave the populace alone.

    1. The "old way" continues. What's happening is the Mexican govt does not want to take orders from the good ol boys from You Ess Aye.

      I wonder why BB hasn't gone head first into breaking down the corruption and chain of command of cartel del pri, or may be they fear the repercussions of outing all the slimeballs we call our leaders and business magnates!?

    2. Makes the most sense to me, it sounds extreme but maybe the only thing that will work. Divide territories, turn a blind eye to trafficking only on the condition of no massacres, extortion, kidnapping, etc, or trying to take over each others territory. Come down hard on those who don't comply. I can't see many other solutions at the min.

    3. 11:15 rebuilding Mexico represents billions of dollars for the foreign contractors that will come with reddy cooked deals with the US govrrnment.
      Bombs and IEDs will be given for free to all participating war sides as they were given in iraq and afghanistan, please order your poison bombs on time, before anybkdy discovers who supplied them. And hoard food and toilet paper in your concrete refuges

    4. The territories are divided, and the more they fragment the more crime, less the mini narco-capos are left without chertos, nachos doritos, fruitsis and have to go on a diet of puro pinchi maruchan all over again.
      The excuse of destabilization also opens a Wonderful World of Opportunities for security specialists that work as "subcontractors for "foreign security.corporations" that have discovered that creating the problem leads to billion dollar contracts on their target countries.

    Tengo miedo. La gente va a tomar tanto de la matanza de los niños. Entonces la gente va a hacer lo mismo que es lo que está ahora en las islas filipinas. Lo que vendrá es un nuevo presidente de México. Habrá elegido una nueva secretaria de gobernaion. Ese hombre usará las fuerzas armadas para usar la violencia y la fuerza para cazar sicarios y jefes de los cárteles. Será tan exitoso que la gente lo elegirá como presidente. Ese hombre creará una hermana a la justicia filipina.

I am sure that people who were killed in the holocaust camps went to their graves with more dignity than any cartel member ever has or will. COWARDS!!!

    2. Greed requires money, and will create supplies to offer satisfy the demand as needed, the target customers rarely care about the business side except for they know they need their 2 or 3 dollars for the crack ho and the crack ho know she will need about 20 customers a day to buy her supply.
      High end aristocrats just know they will need thousands a day and that they will be paid by the more pendejos,
      It is like in the 60s, uppers and downers and grifa, cocaine, LSD, heroin, were trafficked, but to really make.money, they needed to be trafficked to more people, and the CIA created testing marketing, propaganda and all the tricks of the trade to ensure their survival, they reamed LBJ's ass, and Richard nixxon had tk create the DEA (AND THE EPA) TO FIGHT DRUG TRAFFICKING, BUT he lost that war because the deep.state sprung Watergate on his ass.
      After nixxon and kissinger it has been wars on LatinAmerica to make sure the good boy keep the business of the narco on the up.and up, no matter who is prezident of the US.

  15. Of course if the United States were to get involved by sending troops the corrupt politicians would cry that Mexico is a sovereign country so that they can continue getting their bribes under the table from the cartels.

    Quizás hablo tontamente. ¿Por qué México no crece mota y llevarlo al norte y venderlo legalmente a las personas que desean comprarlo legalmente? Desde los campos de cultivo hasta el transporte y las ventas, hacer que los militares y SSP más SAT para monitorear entre sí y girar a estas personas para mantenerlos más honestos. Vender mota al gobierno gringo significará dinero y esto significará interés por De los más grandes ladrones de toda la gobernación para recaudar tanto dinero como sea posible. Sé que esto es estúpido para sugerir, pero desprecio a los niños muertos por esto. No debe haber escasez de marijuanos para hacer crecer estas cosas correctamente.
