    You are right but it is Los Zetas that are out of control.

    Most other areas that are controlled by other cartels don't bother innocents.

    This attack happened in Monterrey which is the heart of their territory.

    You would have to be crazy to go anywhere near there.

    A buddy of mine who lives in Sinaloa, went to that area. He was scared to death and cut his trip short by 2 weeks.

    In Sinaloa, things are under control, even though there is one of the biggest cartels there. They kill each other and there are very few problems with the killing of innocents randomly.

    For those who think all the Violence is on the Border, guess again. The following headlines are from Aug, 14th until the 21rst, that's 8 days and I just picked a few and there are plenty more.

    Mayor Kidnapped Near Mexico City Found Dead

    Five headless bodies found in Acapulco

    9 Bodies found on a highway in western Mexico

    Attacks on Taxi Drivers, Buses in Mexican Resort City Leave 13 Dead

    Gunmen kill 5 in Mexican Pacific resort city

    11 people slain in Acapulco, Mexico

    The vast majority of people killed are innocent civilians and used to send the message that the Cartels are in charge.

    Your last statement is not true.

    Most of the people killed were connected to the cartel in one way or another. You can research it if you are in doubt.

    Los Zetas kill innocents and they are in the norhern part of the country.

    Yes there is violence everywhere but normal people don't have to worry about walking down the street in most places.

    Cancun has its problems too.

    Your first was post in this thread was clearly made without consideration for rational thought, that's why I responded.

    So you can't make a connection to Calderon blaming the USA for the casino deaths and the BATFE intentionally allowing guns to be transported across the US border to Mexico to be used by violent drug cartels?

    Apparently not...

    It is never random.

    They were after somebody and the others got on the way.

    Los Zetas don't care who they kill.

    Fear/intimidation, and it works.

    Not if you live in Yuma or Phoenix. Seriously. Cartel violence, home invasions, kidnappings, murder is rampant in those areas.

    Not really. It is what you think or perhaps what you have been lead to believe, but it is not factual.

    Whether you blame Obama or the ATF, or whatever for the violence in Northern Mexico, the big elephant in the room is that the cartels are fighting over who gets the lucrative drug trade in the US. It is our citizens' appetite for illegal drugs that keeps the gang wars in Mexico going.
