Forty-nine decapitated and mutilated bodies were found on Sunday dumped on a highway connecting the northern Mexican metropolis of Monterrey to the US border, in the latest suspected outburst in an escalating war among drug gangs.
Mexico‘s organized crime groups often abandon multiple bodies in public places as warnings to their rivals, though Nuevo Leon state attorney general Adrian de la Garza said he did not rule out the possibility that the victims were US-bound migrants.
The bodies of the 43 men and six women were found in the town of San Juan on the non-toll highway to the border city of Reynosa at about 4am on Sunday morning, forcing police and troops to close off the highway.
Nuevo Leon state security spokesman Jorge Domene said at a news conference that a banner left at the site bore a message with the Zetas drug cartel taking responsibility for the massacre.
Domene said the fact the bodies were found with the heads, hands and feet cut off will make identification difficult. The bodies were being taken to Monterrey for DNA tests.
De la Garza said the victims could have been killed as long as two days ago at another location, then transported to San Juan, a town in Cadereyta municipality, about 75 miles south-west of the border crossing at Roma, Texas.
Mexican drug cartels have been waging an increasingly bloody war to control smuggling routes, the local drug market and extortion rackets, including shakedowns of migrants seeking to reach the United States.
A drug gang allied with the Sinaloa cartel left 35 bodies at a freeway overpass in the city of Veracruz in September, and police found 32 other bodies, apparently killed by the same gang, a few days after that.
The goal apparently was to take over territory that had been dominated by the Zetas.
Twenty-six bodies were found in November in Guadalajara, another territory being disputed by the Zetas and the Sinaloa group.
So far this month, 23 bodies were found dumped or hanging in the city of Nuevo Laredo, and 18 were found along a highway south of Guadalajara, Mexico’s second-largest city.
In April, police found the mutilated bodies of 14 men in a minivan abandoned in downtown Nuevo Laredo, along with a message from an undisclosed drug gang.
Also in April, the tortured and bound bodies of seven men were dumped in the Pacific port city of Lazaro Cardenas along with messages signed by allies of the Sinaloa drug gang.
Officials last year found 183 bodies in mass graves in the Tamaulipas state town of San Fernando. They were believed to have been migrants killed by the Zetas drug cartel. Another 72 migrants, many of them from Central America, were found slain in San Fernando in 2010.
No matter… they’ll still be voting for Obama.
Maybe. Time will tell.
This is one of the reasons I get very angry about all the Illegals coming here.
This could very well be our country if Obama does get back in. Yet, American Citizens will fight…not just the Military who will fight for us also… but the Citizens will too!
IF the Mexican people are so damn’d concerned about their country — whey aren’t they working towards fighting against all the crime by joining their Military or police force like we do here? Instead they run here and then try to tell us what we should or should not be doing IN OUR OWN COUNTRY.
The Muslims are the same way. Their countries are so screwed up, yet they don’t stay there and fix it themselves…they then come here and screw our country up just like their native country!
At this point I wouldnt be surprised if there hasn’t been communication between Obumma and the cartels. It would explain a few things
Hmmm, you just brought up an important point. Did you read the article that in the middle of it the cartel was “requesting” tanks, and larger weapons…”??????
I just read an article from a Military man who served in the Middle East who was blasting Obama “because OF the porous borders”…that is where they come in! I have been saying that now for 4 years to put the Military on the border!!!
Think about Fast & Furious- The Attorney General of the USA had direct contact with the Cartels, can anybody tell me, with truth on thier heart, that Obumma didn’t have any contact with this scum? Of course he has. Id bet all this killing is part of a diversion factor to be used near election time in case Romney sprints ahead.
That news will probably come out later.
1) Have those that are already here — register (just like our ancestors did at Ellis Island);
2) Background checks are a MUST;
3) After they register, they MUST attend classes to learn to read and speak English (most community colleges offer classes);
4) They must learn the Constitution; Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence (and be tested);
5) They must then go before a judge to be sworn in as an American Citizen.
6) The men “must” join the Military if he is under 30 years of age.
7) They must have a health Check
The adults will NEVER receive Social Security benefits because they have not paid into it.
They are NOT to receive food stamps for the same reason. They have never paid into the system to warrant receiving food stamps.
8) Put the Military on the border. Place signs at every major path where they come into the U.S. Also run ads in all the major newspapers; and give a press release to every major TV station in Mexico.
IF shot crossing the border “illegally, any lawsuits will not be accepted in any U.S. court.
9) They will pay a heavy fine (decided later) on here! for Invading our Country Illegally.
With Millions of them here, that can off-set the costs of them coming here in the first place.
With Millions of them here, that can off-set the costs of them coming here in the first place.
Thats the way it used to be.
WITH the EXCEPTION of Putting Our Military on the border — shoot to kill if they cross the border AFTER the AD is in ALL of the Newspapers in major cities in Mexico + TV stations that ANY AND ALL lawsuits will NOT be addresses!!!
The only problem with that is it also keeps us in.
Well, I don’t know why anyone would want to go to Mexico — at least the upper areas that touch our borders…you’d have a good chance of getting yourself killed.
Acapulco has a lot of violence now also…..what’s wrong with Alaska? lol
HOWEVER, we now already have an Iron Curtain surrounding us. Please read all of this:
As Barack Hussein Obama’s real (internal) poll numbers continue to plummet into oblivion, Obama and his increasingly complicit Congress secretly pass laws that will enslave, incarcerate and even murder their fellow Americans—for the explicit purpose of those who are currently in power remaining in power. It is now becoming clearer and clearer that both the Marxist-Democrats and their RINO brothers and sisters may not allow the 2012 elections to occur.
The latest anti-liberty and unconstitutional atrocities include but, are not limited to, some of the following items:
1. DHS still lists Christians, anti-abortionists, homeschoolers, libertarians, conservatives and military rank and file as terrorists. Note: Islamists are still not included on the list
2. Christian preachers are now being arrested, and often beaten up, by police. A few preachers who have been arrested include two Houston pastors who were arrested for (legally) preaching against homosexuality on the same corner for the past two years. One of the police officers told them that they were ‘doing nothing wrong’. That was just before the cops grabbed their video camera, forced them to the ground, placed them in handcuffs and took them to the station. The charges against them are unclear but, appear to include preaching a message the Houston cops didn‘t like. However, WND reports: “Their hearing will be in Houston Municipal Court, which is run by [lesbian] Barbara E. Hartle, who, according to the Dallas Voice, is listed by the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund as “one of only a few out members of the Texas judiciary.” WND also reports that Pastor Michael Marcavage, founder of the evangelistic Repent America ministry, was placed on the FBI’s terrorist watch list for “nonviolent religious speech which government officials perceive as [merely] controversial.” Controversial? Being controversial is now a crime? In another incident, Pastor Rives Grogan and his 11-year-old son were illegally arrested for preaching against abortion in a public (and allowed) free-speech zone.
3. The most recent and titanic infringement on the rights of ALL US citizens is a bill (National Defense Authorization Act-NDAA). Although Section 1032 subsection (b) (1) and (2) of S 1867 (passed in secret and behind closed doors) states that US Citizens and legal resident aliens are not subject to military incarceration, US Senators (including now self-outed Marxist Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham) are gleefully interpreting Section 1031 to include ALL US citizens being subject to “Detention under the law of war without trial until the end of the hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force.” In other words, we may now experience what those recently nationwide refurbished FEMA camps look like. This is no longer conspiracy theory, folks. Senators Carl Levin (D-MI), John McCain (R-AX) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) amongst many others have now not only threatened all of us with arrest but, are threatening the very foundations of what used to be OUR country. The masks have come off of our elected officials and most of them now resemble either Josef Stalin or Adolph Hitler.
It is now posted. Well in a minute anyway.
