The Narco War continues

You tell 'em Hillary.

I am fairly certain Mexico resents being compared to the Colombia of twenty years ago.  No matter how true it may be.

On a side note when did Cousin It of the Adams Family join the Mexican Marines? 

Seven arrested in Mexico massacre

MEXICO CITY — Mexican marines arrested seven people accused of taking part in the massacre of 72 Central and South American migrants headed for the south Texas border, a government spokesman said Wednesday.

The suspects were arrested in separate incidents since Friday, said Alejandro Poire, Mexico's national security spokesman.

“These arrests will permit the solving of what happened in San Fernando,” Poire said, referring to the town 85 miles south of the Rio Grande at Brownsville where the massacre occurred. “They signify an important step in ending impunity in the aggression against migrants perpetrated by organized crime.”

Wednesday's announcement came on the same day as U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that Mexico's criminal violence verges on armed rebellion.
