(CNN) -- Unknown gunmen attacked an American diplomatic vehicle south of Mexico City, injuring three people, a Mexican military official told CNN Mexico.
The motive behind the attack on the U.S. vehicle, which was on a diplomatic mission, was not immediately known.
Gunmen inside what was described as a Mexican federal police vehicle fired upon a U.S. Embassy vehicle, said the official, who declined to be named for security reasons.
The Mexican official said three Mexican marines were injured in the shooting. However, there were conflicting reports. Some Mexican reports stated that two of the injured were Americans.

Diplomatic Mission, my ass!
The State Department is aware of the report, but has no comment.
Sounds like the F&F Chickens have come home to roost.
It’s cuz non-Sinaloa cartels heard of hussein’s secret “no busts in return for intel” arrangement with the Sinaloa Cartel.
The US is seen as an extension of the Sinaloa Cartel.
Uh....lessay “The Choom Gang” upped their game a tad.
This was for the same reason that the US Customs officer was killed.
This is bad, but if you lay down with dogs eventually ya get FLEAS.
The itching has only begun.
Mexico is now worse than Colombia was twenty years ago.
Today’s Mexican Drug Kingpins make Escobar look week!
Yeah but obama and his gang built that.
Silver or lead.That’s what the cartel psychopaths offer to various Mexican officials...police,mayors,judges,soldiers.I guess the psychopaths either assume that our people won’t accept silver or they’ve tried and failed.Seal the border.Seal it now! Any biped that tries to cross the border gets a burst from our border people.We share a border with a country every bit as lawless as Yemen or Pakistan.And I ain’t talking Canada.
“I guess the psychopaths either assume that our people wont accept silver or theyve tried and failed.”
Boy do you have that wrong! Of coarse they’ve compromised more US officials than you can shake a stick at, just look at some of the stuff that’s happening and you can’t miss it. More than likely this is just one of the cartels sending a message to the US that they haven’t received all the guns that they paid for and that they should hurry it up a bit.
Thanks Free ThinkerNY, additional:
3 U.S. Marines shot in Mexico
That would be difficult for several reasons...1) The US is Canada's largest trading partner and we're her largest trading partner.....2) An enormous portion of the oil we import comes from Canada....3) Canadian tourists spend billions and billions here every year.I can personally assure you that half the cars you see on the road in Florida in January have Canadian plates.And I'll wager that US tourists are important to *their* economy.
This what happens when the US is perceived as timid and weak.
Mitt Romney? Dream on.
can’t be any worse than what we have now.
