No conoces a Mexico. No la conoces como yo. No lo conoces porque eres supuesto Americano. En realidad, ambos somos. Pero tu distingues. Soy el original. Tu eres la copia.
Introduction to the Introduction
You don’t know Mexico. You know Tex Mex. You know illegal immigrants. You might know Cantinflas. You see Mexico from a skewed lens; and you cannot know drug cartels in Mexico until you eliminate your pre-existing thoughts about Mexicans and Mexico.
You have to let your bias go and try to start from a tabula rasa…a blank slate. Then you can understand drug cartels in Mexico.
In this piece, Mexican music will guide you through this analysis. The music is a reflection of the culture, and even today plays a key role in its development. It is not the music you think. There are few or no sombreros, and almost no mariachis. There are some calaveras catrinas though.

Just watched "Gangland: Los Zetas," and thinking I'd like to see your latest installment -- great stuff.

I just finished a book about PMCs hunting mid-level Shia TCOs working alongside Venezeluelan paramilitary elements who assist Baja Cartel units in training alongsdie IRGC/Quds Force operatives along the broder states. The contractors, part of the slightly known RATTLR (Rapid Assymetrics Tactics Team-Lead Response), actually are some of the first to perform DAs with a small amount of US SOF and Mexican Army SOF (Like Mexico's infamous GAFES and highly elite GOPES). The book, I believe, will be out in two months. If anyone would be interested, I think it will be on amazon. Email me @[email protected], because I can give you the title.
