Cryptcl: The Mexican Drug Cartel War

Thanks to the L.A. Times for the list of incidents below. Here is a comprehensive collection of incidents that have occurred so far in the Mexican Drug Cartel War. Thankfully the Arizona and Texas sides of the border have not seen any major impacts yet. There will be some. Even criminals hiding from other Cartel criminals or those who have escaped jail will eventually have an impact on the U.S. side of the border. If they bring their ill-gotten gains, they could easily establish themselves in the U.S. side of the drug problem. It should be noted that President Calderone has 45,000 soldiers and 20,000 police officers involved in the war with the drug cartels. No sense of what if any progress is being made. Mexico is now considered to be the most dangerous country in the world.

Here is the list of incidents:

Here are some useful Mexican Border Statistics:

On a sad note the Mexican Judicial system has a 2% convtction rate. Judges and juries don’t want to convict for fear of their own lives from retaliation by the drug cartels. The drug cartels are getting more and more violent. The drug cartels are also using younger and younger boys and girls to be mules, lookouts, etc. Some Drug Cartel members are emigrating into the U.S. to set up more distribution outlets for their products from Mexico. So far American officials have identified minimal impacts, but its just too tough to know how many Drug Cartel member illegal immigrants are currently in the U.S..  Below are some examples of the extreme violence that is occurring in Mexico. I strongly suggest that Americans stay on this side of the border. There are a lot of kidnappings occurring. Where do you find rich Americans to kidnap? You’ll find them at all the fancy resorts.
