Posted on 03/11/2013 9:17:57 AM PDT by Nachum
A Mexican officer claims the military is indeed at war with drug cartels for territory in northern Mexico and that vast numbers of children have been left homeless and hungry by the war in the seemingly unreachable cartel-controlled territory.
The officer spoke with me in person on the condition of anonymity. When I asked him to explain which cartels were fighting in Nuevo Laredo, he explained that things were not so simple and not so easily defined.
The officer did not speak in law enforcement terms but instead used military terms. It grew clear that the troubles facing Mexico had progressed from criminal to fighting a well-armed insurgency.
He stated that the Nuevo Laredo police force has been entirely disbanded, and only the military functions as law enforcementthat all order comes from the military presence in the city. He claimed that the police were not disbanded due to corruption but because they all fled for their lives. He said the cartels had begun targeting them and their families at their homes.

yeah, and Sheryl Crow is at war with one square too
Does "with" mean "against" or "along side as an ally"?
We all know the Mexican military is free from corruption.
just think of it, a flood of new liberal socialist voters into the United States and nothing a single American can say or do about it since the United States government has signed UN treaties making it mandatory to receive ALL “refugees” fleeing a “war torn” country!
Look at all the so called Iraqi “refugees” flown to the united States and housed in Detroitistan, now the number 1 concentration of muslims in the US.
Hold on to your shorts Arizona, you are about to be over run with Mexican (liberal socialist) flooding into the United States with a Mcinsane and Goober Gramnesty “pathway” to citizenship while being placed on the tax payers dole for health-care, food, education, voting rights, and get out of jail free card!
No wonder the “immigration” bill is being debated behind closed doors and out of sight of the American public at large!
Thanks, War on Drugs, for hyperinflating drug profits so the cartels can arm their insurgency and bribe police!
A Mexican Civil war in Nuevo Laredo.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
The war that nobody Knew. Obama does not know. The MSM did not know. WHO in old Eff knows?
Obama wants this war imported into the Southern Red States of our country. As a matter of fact , he is counting on it.
Great chance for armed drones to be used against US citizens defending themselves.
Anyone who wants to know whats going on in Northern Mexico:
( warning media files show videoed executions)
The Mexican Gov’t needs to get some armed drones, although the cartel could probably buy better ones and install drone countermeasures!
The Mexican Gov’t could use the same Eric Holder rationale that Nuevo Laredo is beyond the control of the gov’t so the gov’t, being unable to arrest murderous thugs, would be justified to whack them with drones.
I predict within the next 20 years, the US will have to occupy Mexico.
“I predict within the next 20 years, the US will have to occupy Mexico.”
Mexico will have us occupied long before that. They already own California and every border town.
“He claimed that the police were not disbanded due to corruption but because they all fled for their lives.”
And guess where they went.
“SAN ANTONIO, Texas For years, national-security experts have warned Mexico’s drug violence could send a wave of refugees fleeing to the United States. Now, the refugees are arriving .......Castro estimates Mexicans own at least 50,000 of the approximately 500,000 homes and apartments in his city of 1.3 million, which has a vibrant Hispanic culture. Many are in gated communities that have sprung up in the city’s sunbaked northern hills. In one neighborhood called Sonterra, built around a country club, so many of the residents are from the Mexican city of Monterrey that the development has been dubbed “Sonterrey.”
“The Mexican Govt needs to get some armed drones,”
I’m pretty sure we bought them some.
U.S. Sends Drones to Fight Mexican Drug Trade - NYTimes.com
Mar 15, 2011 ... The Obama administration has begun sending drones deep into Mexico to gather
intelligence on trafficking.
The drones the US sent to Mexico don’t seem to be armed.
Given the fact, IIRC, that the Sinaloa gang is run be US-trained Mexican forces army defectors, perhaps the US is (should be) concerned that any armed drones given to Mexico might be hijacked by one or more cartels and used against the Mexican gov’t and Us Border Patrol!
“The drones the US sent to Mexico dont seem to be armed.”
LOL..how funny is that...Obama is keeping the armed ones for us.
