Mexico: on the verge of a meltdown
The drug violence threatens safety and the entire economy. Mexico is at a fragile point as President Peña Nieto knows well

Mexico has 9 cities listed in the top 50 most dangerous cities in the world. I have seen the violence first-hand. A good friend was killed due to wounds inflicted from being shot in an attempted robbery while eating a taco at an open taco stand in Mexico City on a Saturday morning . As a sales executive for a major home appliance company based in Monterrey, I have fond memories of many clients. My top client for high-end products is based in San Pedro, Monterrey. She now lives at an undisclosed location in the Yucatan Peninsula due to fears of being kidnapped. Another friend of mine, a former senior advertising executive, finally realized his dream of opening a furniture store in Mexico City, only to be kidnapped and extorted. He closed his business and told me quite simply that "You cannot do business in Mexico".

The violence is mostly drug related. The drug business for Mexico represents around $50 billion, according to some sources. Obviously, no one knows the full extent. That's a lot of money, more than tourism and remittances, which are two basic sources other than oil for the entry of foreign currency into Mexico. How is that money used? Payoffs to police and politicians perhaps, payoffs to border guards perhaps, saved in tunnels and safe houses for future use and, of course, the purchase of weapons principally from the US. What we do know is that the "drug war" has claimed 60,000 lives in Mexico since 2006 alone.

Mexican cartels hiring US soldiers as hit men

Burton said some soldiers become corrupted by gangs after joining, while others are gang members who enlist specifically for the training they can get.

“There has been a persistent gang problem in the military for the past six to eight years,” Burton said, adding that cartels greatly value trained soldiers from the U.S., Mexico and Guatemala as sicarios – hit men.

More recently, the May 22 murder of Juan Guerrero-Chapa, 43, a former lawyer for the Gulf Cartel, in a mall parking lot in an affluent suburb of Fort Worth has raised concerns due to the military precision with which it was carried out.

"Obviously, the nature of this homicide, the way it was carried out indicates –– and I said indicates –– an organization that is trained to do this type of activity," Southlake Police Chief Stephen Mylett said following the attack. "When you're dealing with individuals that operate on such a professional level, certainly caution forces me to have to lean toward that this is an organized criminal activity act.”

Mexican Cartels Tap U.S. Prisons to Expand Operations and Draft New Talent

“I'm telling you, it’s like a job fair in here,” a prisoner tells Gorilla Convict Seth Ferranti.

While the cartels are waging vicious, brutal, and often bloody battles in Mexico with one another and with the Army and law enforcement there, they are simultaneously recruiting American prisoners to increase their manpower, access to arms, distribution points, and trafficking abilities in a multifaceted strategy to keep drugs going north and money and weapons back south.

"There's an awful lot of Mexicans locked up in the feds," a prisoner tells The Daily Beast, “doing 20- to 30-year bids, effectively out of action for the cartels. So what they're doing is recruiting other prisoners, who are about to get out, to sell drugs for their people."

"The conditions are perfect right now for the cartels," the prisoner says. "They have a pool of captivated, untapped talent and ready-made resources, which they can access in our prisons. I'm telling you, it’s like a job fair in here. I'm at the end of a 10-year bid in the feds, and I got a couple of different Mexican dudes making me offers. They want to send me 20 keys right when I get out, on the front. It’s crazy. I didn't want to go back to selling drugs, but 20 keys? I could come up quick and be set for life, you know what I mean?"
