    Young man confronts Zeta Cartel and kills two of them

    Google translation*

    Agencia El Universal / Provincia
    28/02/2011 -
    México, DF.- The mayor of the Francisco R. Murguía county, better known as ''Nieves'', Alfredo Ortiz del Rio, confirmed that a gun battle took place between a group of Zeta gunmen and a young man resident of the town.
    The mayor in an interview with Denise Maerker, of Radio Formula, said that only one person confronted the gunmen during a gunfight that lasted around 40 minutes.
    According to the mayor, a group of gunmen had ordered a town representative to ask the people to hand over their guns.
    After three days the gunmen returned, but this time they were looking for a person, but one of his sons confronted them.
    The father of the young man was out of town, but his son fought with one of the gunmen and killed him; he then took the gunman's rifle and confronted the entire convoy of 3 trucks and managed too kill another Zeta.
    The young man survived with no injuries after being attacked with guns and hand grenades.
    The mayor said the police and army are now doing patrols in this rural community.

    If only more brave men like him stood up to those thugs. But I am sure some people will condemn him for taking the law into his own hands.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    He's dead. The Zeta's are going come gunning for him. Too bad no one else will stand up to help him.

    Its true. He is dead and so is his family. In Juarez, some cartel men-from the Juarez cartel-went to extort a businessman. And the businessman fought back and killed one of them. Several months later the cartel went to his house and killed him and his family members. So that is what happens when you stand up and fight against the cartels.

    It's very difficult for a group of people to be brave when they're fighting against a sociopathic organization that takes in millions if not billions internationally and uses that money to hire professionally trained, well-equipped paramilitary operatives for so much wealth they could literally buy a typical Mexican town.

    The people who you want to be brave, by comparison, are lucky to earn enough for a pistol or a hunting rifle.

    And I know you may say that I'm wrong and that Mexico is full of guns. Which is true. But the thing is is that those guns are usually bought by the cartels for the cartels to use.

    I don't think that we should be asking the Mexican people to be brave and to risk their lives to engage in violence against the cartels. Rather, I think we should start asking the American people to be brave and finally legalize recreational drugs and allow people to get high to prevent this type of violence from organized crime cartels.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I wanted to post a bunch of articles about the War in Mexico. But people here rarely care about anything outside the U.S. Even though Mexico is so close. These drug cartels have been making billions of dollars for over a decade. They have had the chance to seriously arm themselves. It is a serious war. Not still on the scale of Colombia, but that has more to do with fear. The drug cartels fear having the US so close to them. Its true and I know that many of you won't believe me.

    Anyways, the articles are on how the drug cartels go into towns. And they tell the villagers to come outside of their homes. The villagers leave their homes because they are being confronted with men armed with assualt rifles and grenades. Once the villagers are out of their homes the cartels burn all of the houses. There have even been recent cases where the cartels kill everyone in houses. They don't even bother waking up the villagers. They just come during the middle of the night and burn the homes with the people inside them. Little children, elderly, innocent people all killed. The government can't stop that.

    There though lies the problem. Even the military is afraid to confront the cartels. That is seriously how poorly equiped the military is. Also this brings up. Perhaps, the Mexican military is highlighting for the drug cartels. That is the only way that they can create as many ghost towns they have.



    For those of you who can understand Spanish. This is an interview with the young man.

    Actually, that's not quite what happens.

    What happens is that the U.S. sends millions of dollars to Mexico to equip their military with assault weapons and train them in the use of tactics.

    But then those military personnel realize that with their assault weapons and tactical training they can make more money by starting a cartel of their own. So after they take down the cartels as competition, they leave the military and fill in the vacuum to provide drugs.

    And the cycle starts all over again.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Re: Young man confronts Zeta Cartel and kills two of them

    I don't know where you got that information Samsmart, could you provide some links? I majored in Homeland Security and learned about the four major cartels south of the border. One of those is the Zetas. They have been making billions of dollars annually. In fact ATF agents found equipment for making roadside bombs not too far back. The Mexican military actually gets "cycled" out of various towns. This is done to prevent military men from joining the Cartels. The police in Mexico are next to worthless, because they are so scared, which is understandable. The Mexican military is so underfunded compared to the cartels it is a joke. Yes we aid the Mexican government with some black hawks and other equipment but it's not nearly enough. Look up one of the torture methods used by the cartels "El Guiso" and tell me that wouldn't scare you as well. The Cartels are noted of going into schools and taking all the teachers Christmas Bonus's and any other means of money. If you refuse they will kill you on the spot, and than go kill your family. I'm talking Barrett 50 Cals are being used by the Cartels. Yes roadside bombs are being used now. This situation is out of control. I learned that the Pentagon has a list of states that they believe will fail in the near future, at the time of my class Pakistan was at the top followed by Mexico. On the border stores that sell guns are selling them to these scum bags and making the problems even worse. It's pathetic, dangerous, and a very real danger. This man is more than likely dead, but he was very brave and I hope he can make it out somehow.
