I dont know if the leftists in Mexico have enough strength to form their own militia and launch vengeance attacks, but it would not take many dedicated fighters to have a big impact given the general ineffectiveness of the Mexican army.
The army may be ineffective, but the drug cartels are not. For one they manage to stand against the army also. Plus in these cases both the police and the cartels got involved. Thus the militia should be strong enough to handle both the cartels that stand behind feudals as well as the governmental army.
