Part of the gunfight in which Arturo Beltran Leyva was killed a few hours ago.

In that the Mexican authorities are calling one of their great victories against the drugs cartels they killed Arturo Beltran Leyva in a two hour gun battle yesterday.

One of Mexico’s top drug lords was killed in a two-hour gun battle yesterday in one of the biggest victories yet in President Felipe Calderón’s war on drugs.

  • That's why no one should use cocain, and everyone should grow your own weed or buy it from a local grower.
    The stuff is supposed to make you feel good, and it's a real buzz kill knowing people are dying every day over the shit.

    • Good point, how can anyone take drugs knowing this crap happens just to feed their horrible addiction? Probably because they can't think rationally anymore.

    • I'd agree but to address the undertone of your statement I'd remind you many Americans are "taking drugs" legally for medicinal purposes (some legitimate!).

    • If you check any SWAT or Military manual... you as representative of authority need to take control of the situation, avoid hurting innocent civilians. The bodyguards doesnt care about anyone even use granedes to keep the militaries away / kill them. If you want to kill them INSIDE an apartment complex is more difficult and requires tactics. Also Lyeva and his bodyguard where heavily armored, more ammo in hand and no fear to die in combat. If you ask a USMC, SAS, Soldier, SWAT etc... this kind o More..

  • Too many times, the common comment about Mexican Law Enforcement is that they are all crooked.

    While there is a good percentage of them that are, it should not be forgotten that there are many fighting the good fight.

    It's truly a war down there and for every scumbag these Mexican agents take down, that keeps the price up in the United States. And that adds up to somewhat holding the line against this plague.

    My hat is off to them.

    • The Mexican Navy (Armada de Mxico or SEMAR) is a branch of the Mexican military responsible for conducting naval operations. Its stated mission is "to use the naval force of the federation for the exterior defense, and to help with internal order".[2] The Navy consists of about 56,000 men and women, over 189 ships, and about 130 aircraft.[3][4] The Navy maintains a constant modernization program in order to upgrade its response capability, although its programs are hindered by a lack More..
