as happened to that girl in Nuevo Laredo.
I really feel sorry for the ordinary police in mexico who might want to stop horrendous crime, how would you try to fight against the zetas
seems like so much of it is americas fault, its lax gun laws provides the weapons, its population provides the demand for drugs, if they were more sensible on both those issues it would help so much
it's almost as if the world is a multi-faceted and complex place and things that happen in one country have repercussions in another
I do think it is sensible to acknowledge when a countries problems arent completely within its control, most of the guns these cartells use are from america because it is so easy to get guns there, they just pay anyone with a clean record a few hundred dollars and that it, dont see how that is not americas fault
sure, you could say the lax gun laws in the US are a small part of the problem, but its not Americas fault as a whole, as you've their. plus i've never suscribed to the 'blaming the person who sold the gun to the shooter' argument.
I do subscribe to the blame the person who sold the gun argument, if ever there was a totally morally wrong industry its the arms one. But its not just the guns its the demand for the drugs. Maybe fault is too morally charged a word but I think in a situation where a rich country with a high demand for drugs it has outlawed that also doesnt control its guns very well, next to a poor country that can provide the drugs and easily get guns from the other, thats gonna create a potential and there will always be ruthless people willing to take advantage of that. I dont think any country in mexicos position could sort out its problems on its own, there is just too much money to be made and will alays be people willing to do what it takes to make it. If the drug demand and gun supply problem were all within the border of a country they would be recognised as things that needed to be addressed, just because it lies outside their borders I dont see why it shouldnt be considered part of the problem
The US has repeatedly interfered in Mexican affairs over the years, creating a situation where they have a downtrodden neighbour at their doorstep, further compounded by NAFTA and American companies using Mexico as both a dumping ground and a workforce far cheaper than they can get at home, often aided by corrupt Mexican authorities. what does any shat-upon population in an oft-lawless state do? whatever it can. it's pure capitalism at its worst.
Domestic demand for drugs in Mexico is nearing that of the US, something that was unheard of 10 years ago.
The MDW is gonna get worse before it gets better as the Sinaloa Cartel is pretty much declaring war on the Zeta's in Jalico and Veracruz. Add in that Calderon is entering the last year of his tenure, so will really want some kind of result (Zeta's being crushed or Chapo dead or captured) to show for 50k dead.
its America's fault that Mexicans are demanding more drugs though.
but the mexican cartels not the same as a bunch of paedos.
Paedos probably won't spend decades and untold fortunes tracing you and your family then having them chopped into bits and fed to your pets as you watch.
this will end very badly.
the more active section of anon is very guarded, they're literally anonymous. and nobody's going to go and murder some dude from norway supporting the cause, what difference is that gonna make?
they might be ruthless but they're not idiots.
Yes and no. I'm sure that they are extremely careful etc, but the cartels have been shown to be developing links in Europe, so if someone was a real problem to them and they then discovered that persons address in Oslo for example, I'd imagine they would take care of them.
"In September, the Zetas hanged two people from a pedestrian overpass in the border city of Nuevo Laredo with threats against bloggers written on a nearby banner. A week later, a contributor to social media site Nuevo Laredo en Vivo was found decapitated."
That's what they did to a couple of bloggers, think what they'll do to someone who actually interferes with their business, their cashflow, etc. They're proper badman scary fuckers and good luck to Anon, regardless of how guarded they may appear to be.
but i'm saying they're gonna have a very hard time identifying and then tracking down the necessary people, in this specific situation.
and threatening people on the fringes with violence.
In the article Stratfor, the private intelligence organization suggested that the cartels might be more than happy to commit acts of violence against people affiliated to the community.
Perhaps members of Anonymous wouldn't suffer directly but that wouldn't necessarily mean anyone even vaguely affiliated with the group couldn't be hurt as a consequence
DON'T KILL ME LIFE ON TERWEBS I USE IT FOR TEH PRONS LIKE.
