Borderland Beat: 'The only two powerful cartels left': rivals clash in Mexico's murder capital

“There’s no ‘pacto’” in Colima, one of the journalists said, referring to an arrangement between authorities and one of the cartels. “It won’t calm down here until there is.” “There’s no ‘pacto’” in Colima, one of the journalists said, referring to an arrangement between authorities and one of the cartels. “It won’t calm down here until there is.” This is an interesting article and perhaps is true for the moment, but other Cartels are forming alliances and even others developing to try and fill voids in plaza controls. As new mid level cartel managers come on line, they are looking to make a name for themselves and if there is not room to advance will start pushing their own brand. As in business when the top positions are filled and the mid level staff feel there is no room to grow they look to expand on their own, look for the same thing here. The Zeta's felt that was the only way for them to get a bigger piece of the pie, and broke away from their Cartel that they where enforcers for, and made their own brand as a Cartel. If anyone thinks this is over they need to rethink, but probably the most troubling news from this article was the last comment by a journalist.: “There’s no ‘pacto’” in Colima, one of the journalists said, referring to an arrangement between authorities and one of the cartels. “It won’t calm down here until there is.” If this is the only way people thing Mexico can calm down all this violence is to make deals with the Cartels, then Mexico is finished. The Cartels just get stronger during these deals, and the corruption flourishes making the Government weaker, in both the minds of the Cartels and the Citizens of Mexico.
