Posted on 08/03/2007 11:42:42 AM PDT by Froufrou
A small leftist guerrilla group claimed responsibility for a homemade bomb that exploded outside a Sears store and another left outside a U.S.-owned bank in southern Mexico. The statement by the People's Revolutionary Army, or EPR, said the action was intended "to hit the interests of Mexican and foreign oligarchy." It was posted late Wednesday, hours after the blast, on a Web site that serves as clearinghouse for Latin American leftist and guerrilla groups. EPR statements with similar language and style have been posted there in the past. The bomb caused no injuries but damaged an entrance to the Sears store, which is operated in Mexico by Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim. A similar bomb was deactivated outside the entrance of a nearby Banamex bank branch, officials said. Banamex is owned by Citigroup Inc. "We are willing to continue our actions to achieve the necessary conditions so that our detained and disappeared comrades ... are presented, alive," the group said, referring to two men it claims were arrested in May by security forces. The government denies holding the men. The EPR voiced the same demands when it took responsibility for bombing three gas pipelines in central Mexico in early July. In 2004, an EPR splinter group placed small bombs outside banks and an office of Telmex, Slim's telephone company.

Hmmm...where’s the connection? Did Slim help himself to Sears’ laptops before the bombing and the promise to the ninos of Mexico?
He didn't get his name on the tower.
In fact, it's like he never existed.
There really was a "Roebuck" in the beginning:
Don't know what happened to him....but then he'd be dead by now anyway.
Yeah, but having his name on the tower would have been cool. That's something you can enjoy, even if you're dead. /sarc
(Sorry, folks. My anger and frustration is surpassing my clear thinking and rationale, today.)
LOL! That’s fine, yorkie, I know whatcha mean! ;o)
Carlos Slim. What doesn’t he own in Mexico? He certainly has the ear, and the money of our government for the past few cycles.
People like him scare me.
People like him scare me.
People who have that much power at the cost of their fellow citizens should scare us all. Our politicos being friends with them should scare us more.
