  1. Cjng has the best plazas, cds is trailing behind funding small cells like marro to slow cjng down. Never thought cds was going to be weaken out by a michoacan. That's nuts

    1. Technically they aren't being weakened by Michoacan alone. CJNG has politicians and police doing some of their dirty work.

    2. They don't got no border towns but why go that far if they can sell to their own community js

    3. @6:06 CJNG controls the European and Asian markets right now. They decided early on to ignore US for the time being and was able to quietly build up a War chest and thats why you see CJNG in so many fronts. Atm CJNG doesn't need border towns since they still earn billions shipping to Europe and Asia they just wanted a piece lf the US pie.

    4. 6:06 Tijuana, tecate ando soon Mexicali

    5. 4:53 Technically? Bro reread what you just wrote. If they doing dirty work for them that means they on the payroll. 0

    6. se nota que nomas hablar por hablar. hay acuerdos y en los acuerdos siempre tienen fecha de vencimiento. por que crees que los de jalisco no entran a sinaloa ni sinaloa entra de lleno a otras plazas. no me vengan con que no es plaza que no les interesa y tiene con queos las tortillas. ademas sacarias atu competencia de su bastion.siempre hay acuerdos. tu no te pases de esta raya y uds tampoco. pero tienen su caducidad. entonces si sobre de ellos. ya falta poco para que veas el cambio.

  2. CJNG are a bunch of cockroaches. They will be snuffed out soon. No one likes them they are the new zetas, everyone is after them. Mencho will be tracked down and killed sooner or later. You can't hide from CIA forever unless you want to live in a hole in the ground like saddam hussein who was eventually located and executed.

  3. All cartels have some protection from law enforcement and positions, like mencho tried to take over as much territories as he could because epn is almost gone so Cds is fighting cjng in his backyard and he is staring to pull out people from michoacana to help him fight el Cholo backed by cds every cartel has to have there number up sooner or later

    1. All of a sudden chapo gets locked up and NOW everyone has his day. Before cds nutthuggers would say he's never getting captured lol

    2. Chapo has been locked up, where have you been.

  4. Why these gangs are flying all over mexico...what's wrong with the gov.
    This is nuts...
