Editor’s note: Is it possible the Mexican police and military are being used in a push to violently reogranize and centralize drug cartels that work for the CIA and the Wall Street bankers?
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – A powerful coalition of drug gangs led by Mexico’s most-wanted man is collapsing, meaning the surge in bloodshed and police killings will get worse, a senior U.S. counternarcotics official said.
Internal conflicts, greed and pressure by Mexico’s military are causing a split among gangs from the Pacific state of Sinaloa, with each group seeking new alliances to smuggle illegal drugs into the United States.
“The Sinaloa cartel is weakened, divided … . There are internal disputes, rivalries, betrayals,” the official, who declined to be identified, told Reuters in an interview. “You’re going to see more violence.”
“It is getting worse because police are engaging, because cartels want to create fear and because of attacks between rivals. It’s going to get worse before it gets better.”
More than 1,400 people have been killed in drug violence this year across Mexico as cartels vie for control of lucrative smuggling routes into the United States. It is a faster rate than in 2007, when about 2,500 died during the year.
