I am surprised there isn't already a thread about it.

War in the streets breaks out, 14 police killed.

They release him to stop the violence.

That's just nuts, no control by the govt, the cartels are in control..

More TDS...

My local news is reporting that the reason that Mexican law enforcement was forced to stand down was because they were undermanned, due to the a fact that Trump forced Mexico to send 5,000 troops to their southern border to repel the caravans for us.

Default Imagine that - police can NOT resist large numbers of well armed fighters

Quote:
On Thursday, armed men in the city of Culiacan, a stronghold of the Sinaloa Cartel, unleashed heavy gunfire on security forces, taking several of them hostage after they detained Ovidio Guzman - prompting security forces to release him.

The violence spread across the city of 750,000 people as the cartel deployed fighters, burned vehicles and blockaded streets. Schools were shut for the day and residents were told to stay inside.
But paddy o'rourke is going to take the guns away from 150 million ****ed off Americans.

Mexico lost control of many areas to cartels for awhile now.

I have been watching videos of what went down in this El Chapo Jr raid down in Mexico. Suppose if you had two armored SWAT vehicles, 10 officially-marked unarmored vehicles and two up-armored HUMMVs and 30-35 experienced and well trained men, do you think you could do a raid on a house and extract one criminal?

So after you have taken this guy into custody do you think with this force you could return to your HQ, put this criminal in jail and keep him there long enough to extradite him to another country, let's say hold him for just 24 hours? I think most professional law enforcement agencies would say sure, we do it all the time. I think most of us if we were on that raid force would say ‘we got this’ right up until we are confronted with ‘a force greater than’ the raid force.

Oh yeah, did I mention the bad guys have 50 cal. Barrett sniper rifles and vehicle mounted M2 belt fed machine guns.
From what I have seen 'the force greater than' responded from outside of the road cordon and in the end for public safety the Chapo kid was released.

El Chapo’s son had a QRF that reacted with speed, surprise and violence of action.

From a tactical perspective I’ve got to give the cartel guys an overall satisfactory rating on their performance. The news videos don’t really supply enough information for me to determine the force on force ratio or the scheme of maneuver.

The forces that emerged were in the literal sense awesome and awful. Heavy weaponry that would be familiar on any Iraqi, Syrian, or Yemeni battlefield was brought to bear. More and worse: custom-built armored vehicles, designed and built to make a Sahel-warfare technical look like an amateur’s weekend kit job, were rolled out for their combat debut. Most critically, all this hardware was manned by men with qualities the Mexican Army largely lacks: training, tactical proficiency, and motivation.

Then the coup de grace: as the Chapo sons’ forces engaged in direct combat with their own national military, kill squads went into action across Culiacán, slaughtering the families of soldiers engaged in the streets.

If the cartel guys are willing to hold the population hostage and the public servants are unwilling to accept collateral losses then its ‘game over’ the cartel wins.

Everyone needs to bring this up every time we hear a ‘liberal’ talking about how great it would be to have more gun control. Only outlaws have got guns, right?

Who could have predicted that?

The irony is that the hardware was provided via billions of dollars in military aid by Obama to support the drug war in Mexico. From 2015:

"Why Is the US Still Spending Billions to Fund Mexico’s Corrupt Drug War?"

Not getting the attention it deserves, just like in MSN. Mexico is run by terrorist warlords. The only thing separating us from their war is an imaginary line. If all hell breaks loose down there, even Trumps wall would be little more than a speed bump.

This site has some video including their mad max inspired narco tanks.
