72 (More) Bodies Found At Mexican Ranch

From an unfazed Associated Press:

72 bodies found on ranch in northeast Mexico

August 25, 2010

MEXICO CITY (AFP) – Troops uncovered at least 72 bodies, including those of 14 women, on a ranch in northeastern Mexico after a clash with gunmen, the Mexican military said early Wednesday.

The gruesome find came after a shootout between troops and suspected drug traffickers near the town of San Fernando, in Tamaulipas state, in which one member of the military and three gunmen were killed, according to the Mexican Navy.

Tamaulipas, which borders the southern US state of Texas, is the scene of brutal confrontations between the Gulf drug cartel and its former allies, the Zetas, as they fight for control of lucrative smuggling routes into the United States.

The navy said "the lifeless bodies of 72 people were found" after the military went to the ranch when a man suffering from gunshot wounds approached a nearby military checkpoint and said he had been attacked on the ranch by members of a drug gang.

The operation, which included military air support, netted one "underage suspect," but the rest of the gunmen who were not killed managed to escape.

Way to go, Mexican Navy!

The military seized 21 rifles, about 6,600 rounds of ammunition, and four trucks including one bearing Ministry of Defense markings, the navy said…

On June 7, 55 bodies were uncovered in a mass grave outside a mine in the southern state of Guerrero, the largest find of its kind in Mexico.

On July 23, 51 bodies were found in a residential area on the outskirts of Monterrey, the capital of the northern state of Nuevo Leon

The ranch where the mass grave was discovered is a few dozen miles (kilometers) from the US border.

Last week Calderon criticized the US government, accusing it of failing to forcefully tackle drug addiction in the United States and neglecting to rein in the arms industry — two key elements in tackling Mexican narcotrafficking…

He has repeatedly said that arms trafficked across the border from the United States supply Mexico’s brutal drug gangs with the weapons they use in gruesome violence that has claimed tens of thousands of Mexican lives

Naturally, it is all the fault of the United States.

That must be why Mr. Calderon is encouraging his citizens to invade our country. To punish us.

    Gee, Mr King of America.
    Will you sanction a region of Texas so they can dump the bodies on our side of the border?
    This way the Mexican Navy won’t have to let the bad guys slip away during a gun battle.

  2. NoNeoCommies says:

    Maybe rotting bodies in the smuggling tunnels could be a deterrent.
    Of course, we can’t use human remains.
    After all, we still have something resembling civilization in the US even though our alien invaders damage it more every day.
