“Finally, 10 decapitated bodies – three of them women – were found Saturday morning in the northern city of Torreon, Coahuila state, and the heads discovered in different parts of town” Yes, that’s the end of a report from laht.com on this weekend’s cartel-related violence. Not including today (Sunday). The unstated info that points to the main cause of this murderous mayhem: the Mexican military is at war with Los Zetas. Not the rest of the Mexican drug cartels.

As long as he’s going to garner millions of hits whilst demonstrating unsafe gun practices TTAG will call him to account. Again, I urge FPS’ weapons supplier to INSIST on eye and ears for our faux Russian friend. It’s only a matter of time before this ends badly; either years down the line (when his hearing is gone) or sooner. His armorer will bear blame.
