Ok, it’s time to get vocal. I simply hate Meth and what it has done to our rural communities (did you watch Winter’s Bones?). Mexico produces even more meth then we do; add in marijuana and we’ve got a real drug factory just right next door.
200 miles from San Antonio as the crow flies, in a coal mining area of Coahuila, Mexico, the Army has recently unearthed a tank hidden in the earth by organized criminals. These guys are waging a real. serious. war.
Why the US press tells us about the brutal slayings in African nations but not what is happening on our very border is beyond me. Daily hangings, beheadings, tortures, ambushes of community leaders, etc. Things you don’t want to know about.
So here’s the latest weapon: The Monsters, modified heavy duty Ford trucks.
According to El Blog del Narco:
It is a huge vehicle Ford, Super Duty model, armored with steel plates about 1 cm thick, 7 feet long by 3 ½ feet wide and 3 meters high, with capacity for 12 people, with 2 turrets for shooters.
You can search for El Blog del Narco on your own but be warned: Mexican-style news reporting is very graphic and they do not pull any punches in trying to protect the public from the gruesome torture and murders that they report many times a day.
How does all this apply to our lives right now? Well, last week the Mexican Army found a factory that makes these “Monsters”, right across the Rio Grande from Rio Grande City and just up the river from McAllen, Texas
This post you should see because the descriptions of these Monsters is hard to believe. Check out the photos.
These Cartels mean business.
And, please, I know very few people who read my blog are likely to use marijuana, but if you do, STOP!
No more money to Mexican criminals.
