Mexican Drug Wars Now Worse Than Iraq

The headline above is from British paper the Daily Telegraph, [March 23, 2009] so word is getting around about Mexico`s spiraling chaos.

And the cartel thugs are not armed with dinky 9mm handguns from some local store in the US.

"Quite frankly, in Mexico you can`t be armed enough," said Mr Bethea. "The dynamic of this combat is approaching the early days of the Iraq war. The cartels` men are well trained, disciplined and are armed with the latest weaponry, including armour-piercing bullets, rocket-launchers and grenades."
