  • Mexican drug cartels take down military helicopter

    Mexican drug cartels have shot down a Mexican army helicopter killing at least 6 soldiers. The cartels are so powerful now they are manufacturing their own weapons.

          No, but "escargot la`Mecca" is growing quite popular in France.

              First time a drug cartel used one to take down a helicopter.
              The full story is there were six copters following a convoy of cartel members, they were going to ambush them.

                ISIS has a training base in Mexico, right across our border according to this report...
                ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector.

                The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm.

                During the course of a joint operation last week, Mexican Army and federal law enforcement officials discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, as well as “plans” of Fort Bliss – the sprawling military installation that houses the US Army’s 1st Armored Division. Muslim prayer rugs were recovered with the documents during the operation.

                  Usually, when a nest of rats or cockroaches are found, they get exterminated. Wonder what the responses to these things are going to be (if they are true). More appeasement from our government?

                    The best part about the murders down south is that you will rarely, if ever, hear anything about the scale of what is going on down there but for the occasional article about missing students or, in this case, a very stunning example of how lawless Mexico is becoming.

                    With the targeted campaign against journalists there - it's more dangerous to be a journalist in Mexico than a journalist in Syria - there are few people brave enough to actually risk their lives to cover what is happening.

                    And those stories that do come out are routinely ignored by the American news media. Over the last few years over a 100,000 people have been murdered on our doorsteps. It's quite shocking, both the scale of the violence and the large apathy within the States about it.

                      The immigration debate has a large part in it too. Painting Mexico as the largely lawless and dangerous place that it is tends to hurt the sympathy and tolerance people have towards illegal immigrants as they become viewed as a part of that threat. Can't have Americans thinking things like that it's "racist" and counterproductive to the current government's goals.

                        On the flip side the displaying of Mexico as such a violent and dangerous place could be fuel to paint illegals in a favorable light - after all, its easier to sympathize someone trying to flee a nation wracked with murder and narco-terrorism than one who just wants to come over for a job.

                        Which is why I don't blame the apathy on ideology - both sides could benefit from covering events there, but none of their media outlets cover it significantly. The disinterest in Mexico is bipartisan.

                          There is a difference though. In Mexico the drug cartels only care about profit. They'll fight anyone or anything that is going to cut into their cash flow.
                          The North African states are becoming Islamic regimes and theocracies that have the intent to spread their beliefs to Europe. Mexican drug cartels don't much care who buys their product so long as they are buying it.
                          The smarter cartel members bail once they get rich then "immigrate" to places like Colorado where they can live in safety and comfort and "dabble" in the drug market as they wish...

                            That's a good point. It could cut both ways and probably would depending who you ask. They'd be frightened refugees to Democrats and cartel smugglers/terrorist infiltrators to Republicans.

                              So, they prove they have the will to use heavier weapons in addition to the cash to purchase higher tech. This will get worse before it gets better, as the cartels turn into insurgencies, and even possibly revolutionaries.
