Will the Cartels Strike Back on September 16?

I know that you're all planning on spending Mexican Independence Day (September 16, 2010), somewhere. Maybe it's not a great idea to plan on spending it in Mexico.



Based on the buzz on the streets in Mexico, the Cartels plan to show the Federal Government of Mexico the meaning of "revolution" on that most critical of all national holidays. There are signals that the government is killing more and more of the significant narcotraffickers in the country, but the narcos are sending signals that they plan to show the government that they may not be as all-powerful as they feel that they are - and it will happen on September 16.

The heads of the hydra keep popping up. Yesterday, the Mexican Government announced the arrest of one of key shot callers is what's left of the AFO Cartel in Tijuana. Julio Cesar Magana Heredia (cousin of El Gordo Villareal) is now in custody and a small arsenal of firearms are in government hands. Yes, it's a victory, but is it a pyrrhic victory? They arrest a lot of these guys and they always have an impressive load of narcotics and weapons.

One would think that with the Bark Hussein Obama Administration's soft policy on illegal immigration that drug lords under siege could move into Southern Arizona into the zone that the US Government already ceded to the cartels, to avoid Mexican Army scrutiny.

  2. How prepared are border officials, should a large number of subjects armed with fully automatic weapons come into a border state with mischief on their maids?

  3. If we had a real President and not a Pantload, he could let his returning armies from Iraq rest. Then put them in Arizona and start them marching south. It would be their job to mow down any resistance and stop around Mexico City.

    I feel much better now.

  4. I think it speaks volumes about Mexico that most former presidents (the live ones) are living in another country.

    WoFat, I think we almost need a bunch of Americans killed by Mexican slugs in order to ralley the American people around what Arizona is trying to do, and what Napolitano and Obama are trying to prevent. If Brewer was smart, she'd empower county sheriffs to deputize citizens to help control that southwestern region. She wouldn't have any problem getting volunteers.

  5. Mustang - under this scenario, it would be prudent for Gov. Brewer to entertain the notion of deputizing people from other states as well. I mean, why limit the fun to people from Arizona?

    Walk softly and carry a big stick (peace through superior firepower).
