Wow, John Dodson has some balls. Did he leak those documents and the video too? I wonder what the repercussions will be?

This whole scandal still blows my mind…

Scary stuff.  Unless these Americans are fishing for a living in order to put food on the table, I don’t know why the hell you would risk fishing and/or boating if you knew a Mexican drug gang (Los Zetas) was cruising around robbing people. Seems like a dumb risk, even if you are armed.

Also, since when can you just freely drive across borders (water or land)? I thought it was a universal thing that you needed to go through a port of entry or have prior authorization of some sort.  Also, can U.S. citizens normally fish freely in Mexico?  That’s what it sounds like in the article and video.

I’m sick of hearing about shit like this.  When is that damn fence going to be complete already?  And will it extend through the water part of the border? :D

During my deployments in Iraq there were often rumors that certain soldiers were taking steroids because of their sudden increase in physical size. When the unit deployed these soldiers looked no different from the average soldier, but upon completion of the deployment they looked Rambo-esque. Some soldiers felt that others were getting away with steroid use because these soldiers were rarely seen in the gym and because drug testing through urinalysis was rarely done by units while deployed.

I don’t know how people can function on drinks like “Rip-it”. I once had a few Red Bulls back to back and felt terribly anxious, and even more thirsty then I was initially.  I suppose you get accustomed to it though.

I’m really surprised they don’t crack down more on steroid use while deployed. Especially considering mismanaged steroid use can quickly lead to heath problems and injuries.  I assume the side effect of aggression would occasionally have its advantages in combat.  It would be nice though if you could just turn it off and on.

Mexican soldiers have seized an arsenal of gold-plated and diamond-encrusted weapons believed to belong to the Valencia gang, allies of the powerful Sinaloa drug cartel and, it seems, fans of hip-hip excess.

Showing just how flamboyant gang members spend much of their ill-gotten wealth, pictures show how most of the 31 ‘pimped’ pistols found in a raid on a home in western Mexico had gold or silver-plated grips or were glittered with diamonds.

Three of the assault rifles are almost entirely gold-plated and there was even a silencer plated with gold. One particularly image-conscious gangster has made his pistol unique by adding rows of gaudy red and green jewels and a Ferrari logo.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’d open carry that black 1911 with the diamond punisher grips with pride.

I’m honestly shocked that someone in the main stream media was able to write an article on Mexican drug cartel’s guns and not even mention the ubiquitous “gun show loophole”

The rifles aren’t really my style, although I still think they would be an awesome addition to any collection. Pretty neat how even the suppressor has engraving all over it.

Where does one even get such badass work done?  I imagine it would takes days worth of time, and be very expensive.  My guess is that these cartels have jewelers and gunsmiths on the payroll.

In coordinated attacks, gunmen in armored cars and equipped with grenade launchers fought army troops this week and attempted to trap some of them in two military bases by cutting off access and blocking highways, a new tactic by Mexico’s organized criminals.

At least 18 alleged attackers were killed and one soldier wounded in the fighting that erupted Tuesday in half a dozen towns and cities in the states of Tamaulipas and Nuevo Leon, the army said, topping off one of the deadliest months yet in a drug war that has raged for nearly 3 1/2 years.

18 Mexican gang members killed – one soldier wounded? Works for me… that means that either the Mexican soldiers are really good, or the gang members are comparable to the Afghan Army.  Regardless of the outcome, it’s frightening that the gangs have the audacity to attack their own country’s Army.
