Yet another example of the wonderful we live in and the joys of free enterprise...:rolleyes:

"It was a brutal massacre even by the gruesome standards of Mexico’s drug war: 72 migrant workers gunned down by the "Zetas" - arguably the country's most violent cartel - and left rotting in a pile outside a ranch in Tamaulipas state near the US border in late August.

The Zetas have a fearsome reputation, but the real surprise comes not in their ruthless use of violence, but in the origins of where they learned the tricks of their bloody trade.

Some of the cartel's initial members were elite Mexican troops, trained in the early 1990s by America’s 7th Special Forces Group or "snake eaters" at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, a former US special operations commander has told Al Jazeera."

"The group has mounted the severed heads of its victims on pikes in urban areas, posted torture and execution videos on the internet, forced poor migrants into prostitution and massacred college students during house parties.

"Other cartels have accused them of not following the 'gentlemen's code' of drug trafficking and causing undue violence," Bricker told Al Jazeera.

"At one time, it was considered bad form to kill pregnant women, but not any more." For safety concerns, Bricker didn’t want to say where she lives in Mexico.

Deare estimates "probably more than 500" GAFE personnel received special forces training. He is unsure exactly how long the programme lasted. The Zetas came to the attention of Mexico’s Attorney General’s office in 1999."

Insane stuff happening in Mexico . Perhaps 'the Americas' should rethink their drug laws . Im not sure I buy the 'conspiracy' theory of US trained gangsters but by giving gangsters an income , the US and other markets are certainly aiding criminals .

Ain't no conspiracy. The Americans have been training death squads in Latin America for years.

Ah well, at least they're a democracy.

That's it? The US Army trained foreign soldiers who later became criminals and that justifies an anti-US thread? That's absurd.

Seven, the US has helped train Mexico Special Forces. Members of Mexico's Special forces have been hired by the drug Cartels. The US has beet been a good and bad neighbor to Mexico but I hardly imagine the violence that has spiralled out of control on the US-Mexico border is in Americas interest.

So the US recruited these soldiers? No they did not. Mexico did. These men deserted the mexican army, they were not sent into Mexico by the US.
