I'm currently in Zeta country. The opinion around here is that this either means war or calmer times ahead. There are rumors that the Templars from Michoacan are headed this way after failing to push back local civilian forces. Zetas are controlling the bigger cities in Nayarit and the Fiscal General of the state has links to organized crime. The possibilities right now: The Zetas could make a powergrab into the SC's turf if it shows any kind of weakness. With many Templars headed this way, there is also possible war with them. There is also the possibility of the Templars being crushed by both government, civilian and cartel forces before they get here.
Our best hope is for the Sinaloa Cartel to remain relatively strong. If they can do that, we'll avoid 3-4 types of situation where a cartel war is a very likely possibility.
