  1. That is why everything south of Laredo is a shitty plaza b/c there isn't the tractor trailer or even car volume going over the border. Yes they have uninhabited land that mules can backpack work over, but kind of hard to move metric tons by the day using mules. lol

    3. 5:38 You do what you need to do to progress and how you think you will make it. Some sell drugs others decide to study hard and try and make it. Others do worse others better.

      But some commit genocide, destroy civilizations, enslave people and take a whole land mass for themselves and call the people they did that to illegal. Than they decide that's not enough so they decide they need to try and control the world. So they have bases all around the world to keep those people in check and call it supporting our allies.

      Take a guess.

      How much blood did that gallon of gasoline take to get into your gas tank? How much blood did it take for you to get that nice house you have? You didn't do anything but someone had to have done something to make it possible. It could have happened years ago or just yesterday.

  4. Most probably the drugs belonged to the CJNG I been saying this for awhile the CJNG has been operating in Nuevo Laredo for a quite good time.They just move there drugs thru there since the CJNG has a presence in Monterrey its easy for them to move there drugs thru Nuevo Laredo also the CDN is weaker than ever its easier for the Jaliscos to move there product thru that border.

    1. Nope. Surprisingly los zetas still dominate NL it is what reynosa is to los metros. 98 carrizales and his people passed cdg sur dope thru there, Zetas tried but couldnt get rid of him cuz he fucked up em every time and still do even tho 98 was betrayed by wero cleofas later on. Texas is z & cdg bread and butter but golfos control southern TX big cities like houston & san anto

    2. CJNG has ZERO presence is in monterrey and even less in the Laredo border. And CDG are the ones moving a lot of dope (from high quality Asian Heroin to meth and cocaine) not jaliscas.

    3. zetas messed it all up for the cdg if it wasn't for them cdg would probably be controlling coahuila, nuevo leon, tamps by now of course that could had been possible if they didn't had all the idiots they got right now.

    4. @3:22 You say it like if it would be "impossible" for the CJNG move drugs thru that border lol You know how many vehicles pass thru Nuevo Laredo-Laredo every day? It's impossible to keep track of every vehicle that crosses the border. I bet even CDG and CDS cross there drugs thru Nuevo Laredo too. You make it like if it's a big problem to cross drugs thru Nuevo Laredo and its not lol Even people that move drugs by there own "chapulines" move drugs thru Laredo without paying the CDN piso.

      Also Monterrey is a non dominant plaza for any cartel you have Z/CDG,Beltranes,CDS,CDN, Michoacanos,chapulines (people that sell drugs by there own) I bet even Jalisco's are in Monterrey last time I heard about the CJNG having presence in Monterrey was in San Nicolas.

    5. 12:31 I agree. Everyday independents and every cartel moves dope across bridge 2 (cars and pedestrians) and the Columbia Bridge in commercial trucks. No government or cartel can possibly manage the immense traffic.

      Over 11 million persons, cars and trucks crossed in 2015.
      Laredo # 1 Inland port on US Mexico Border.
      Laredo # 1 Railroad interchange on US / Mexico Border.
      Crossing grows 17.8% from 2014-2015.
      Over 12,000 commercial trucks and 2,000 railcars pass each year

    2. Wrong! No waste is better than a little waste and here we are in the midst of 30 years of a huge waste! The WoD is a waste of money, peoples life and the sanity of our society.

      Make no mistake: after 30 years of WoD drugs are cheaper, stronger and more plentifull than ever.

      Maybe/probably this is the case BECAUSE the WoD!

  9. I bet seizures like this are exaggerated by customs. Where do the come up with these numbers. Shit that would take most drugs of the streets. Lies. If drugs stop flowing that would put a lot of people out of jobs in the USA.

    3. @7::37, I thought it stated 9 loads make it for every one stopped. Also it looks like the loads are 5:1 meth:cocaine, from the over weekend totals - so whoever is making it is doing so with every gm of chemicals they can, then sharing product with their crews & sending lots to the gringos.

  10. Yaqui... The bankers the money lenders and changers, real estate, transport, luxury goods, jewellery, cars, factories, finance, lawyers, prisons, police ALL these funded or augmented by drug $$$ don't be misled, for instance, you think prisons aren't funded by drug money? Think again. Economies worldwide would suffer without drugs to prop them. Then you have military complex and black budgets. And this is off the top of my head... A full scale look would be interesting, how much DOES narco cash prop up our system?

    1. I agree. The DEA and other agencies need drugs to stay in business. No drugs would eliminate government, state and city jobs. The domino effect. Plain and simple. Drugs will always be around whether we like it or not. Not to mention economies.

    4. Its well noted that Miami was built on drug proceeds. During the height of the cocaine boom.Can only imagine how many other cities and development ventures where funded by such?
      Where banks knowingly engaged in illicit practices for gains. Yet, to this day the continuous unsavory practices by banks receive little to none of punitive measures. That's the power of money and political alliances.

  13. Statistics show that all, and I mean all law enforcement agencies combined only busy 5-10% of all the drugs that come into the U.S. An article posted here I believe (BB) of an interview of a high ranking smuggler have them more credit than that. He said that he would loose an average of 20% of his product just trying to get it into the U.S. He also stated that he would account for that lost and still make a profit.
    Which ever the truth is. The numbers that are reported are just a drop in the bucket. WoD is a failure, but what would you do. Some want the government to fix our problems and others don't. Usually the ones that want that are the ones that vote. So you get a WoD. Obama Care, free college, low has prices, free abortions, free cell phone, ect.

    1. Sounds like you are opposed to all things free? While the rich get richer and the middle class is dwindling. Where's the justice in a fair share for those who struggle on a daily basis. Unfortunately, inflation continues to rise. Minimum wages are a means for daily survival. Companies and corporations are relocating to other countries to make greater profits.
      A fair shake to those citizens is only warranted!

    2. Don't get what political views you undertake @11:46.
      But I am a very Discontent with majority of policies undertaken from government officials.
      Health care is a guaranteed in other countries.
      While here in the US it's a business. Where insurance and pharmaceutical companies make fortunes. Where senior citizens continue to work due to premiums rates that are not covered. Where is the justice in that?
      Where the retirement age is rising to make government more money not effective. A continuous gouging of tax payers dollars from those who are obligated to work. Where is justice in that?
      We live in a non perfect world where money is influenced by political elements.
