Mexico Shooting Exposes Secret CIA Involvement in the Drug War

September 1, 2012 by 

By Mario Andrade

The failed ambush that took place last week on  two CIA agents in Mexico continues to raise questions by both  people in Mexico and in the U.S. The Mayor of Mexico City is asking the federal government to clarify what the exact role of the CIA is in the so-called drug war. In the United States, some Republicans are beginning to ask the Obama Administrations for answers about this recent incident, which parallels the shooting of ICE Agent Jaime Zapata when he was ambushed and killed by Los Zetas almost two years ago. Last Friday August 24 at approximately 8:30 in the morning, a Toyota SUV with two CIA agents, one Mexican Marine Captain, and a drug cartel informant onboard was ambushed by cartel members and the Mexican Federal Police. . . .

Drug Wars: A Photo Layout

from totallycool pix

Drugs are big business and big business means big money means stiff competition. In a normal industry you’d simply try to beat the competition by making a better product or by building a good brand. In the drugs business you simply try to do away with the competition by killing them. Pablo Escobar did it and the Mexican drug gangs have been at it a while too. This year alone thousands of people have been killed in Mexico due to the drug wars and the town of Ciudad Juarez is often the battlefield. As long as the demand is there the supply will keep on coming and death, destruction and wealth with it. GRAPHIC CONTENT. . . . Visit web site

Meet My Town Nuevo Larado

Yes!, this is my town, Nuevo Laredo 🙂

As you can see, it doesn’t have any special or particular thing to show off to the world – except for the notorious drug problems that we commonly have here in the Mexican borders – (shame on us LOL).
