Chapo “The Fight is on” ISIS!

Chapo “The Fight is on” ISIS!

Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzman has a lot of enemies: the Mexican government, the Drug Enforcement Administration, Donald Trump.

But now the world’s most powerful drug trafficker is taking one what is arguably the world’s most feared organization, ISIS.

Chapo’s anger toward the radical jihadist group does not stem from some sense of altruism for the victims of the recent attacks in Paris or San Bernardino, but instead from concerns about his bottom line after ISIS destroyed several of his Sinaloa Cartel’s drug shipments moving through the Middle East.

In a harshly worded email to ISIS, which was leaked by the website Cartel Blog, Guzmán sent a stark warning to ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi about messing with the cartel’s business.

“You [ISIS] are not soldiers,” Guzmán purportedly wrote. “You are nothing but lowly p**. Your god cannot save you from the true terror that my men will levy at you if you continue to impact my operation.”

Guzmán added: “My men will destroy you. The world is not yours to dictate. I pity the next son of a whore that tries to interfere with the business of the Sinaloa Cartel. I will have their heart and tongue torn from them. It looks like it’s on.”

The Sinaloa Cartel is considered the world’s largest drug trafficking organization, with operations running throughout the Americas, Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia. In the Middle East, the cartel has become a major provider of cocaine, ecstasy and other so-called party drugs to oil-rich princes and businessmen throughout the region.

Islamic State fighters, however, abhor the use of drugs and have systemically been destroying any cartel shipments they get their hands on.

While the group is prolific on social media and in their video output, ISIS has so far not responded to the threats from Guzmán.

In his letter, Guzmán also hints that if he succeeds in destroying the terrorist group then he should be given immunity from prosecution. Guzmán made a highly-publicized escape earlier this year from a maximum security prison in Mexico, where he was awaiting trial on drug trafficking charges.

“It would be ironic that the group who ends up taking out ISIS is El Chapo’s drug cartel!” Guzmán reportedly wrote. “They seem up to the task and it could be worth giving immunity to this guy in exchange for him and his boys taking out ISIS once and for all!

The crisis of insecurity added, Sinaloa have a time bomb against the citizens they represent, the narco laboratories and chemicals used to manufacture synthetic drugs seized by the army and the Attorney General’s Office (PGR.)

According to military personnel and Quick System Company, hired by the PGR for moving and storing the seized substances, the number of laboratories dismantled in the federal entity and has exceeded the capacity of management and safeguarding of the precursors to manufacture drugs, they have been improvised storage centers that lack the backing of state Civil Protection.

2011 to date have been discovered 146 clandestine laboratories in Sinaloa, located in nine of the 18 municipalities of the state, according to figures from the Army.

To date, the Attorney General finds that 12 chefs from the narco-who are responsible for producing the synthetic drug, have been killed by poisoning.

Danger: Waste of narco

Investigate death of 12 “cooks” in 2011 and 2012 have been dismantled narcolaboratorios 146.

Sinaloa is a time bomb before an imminent collapse of thousands of gallons of highly toxic substances and pollutants that have been seized and kept in public facilities.

These components come from narcolaboratorios assurances which produced synthetic drugs.The lives of dozens of people at risk before the indifference of state and federal authority that has left the issue to chance; in contrast, the Army is the only authority in the state identifies and secures the substances and the “rudimentary factories “where they are produced synthetic drugs and crystal meth calls.

Currently, Sinaloa experiencing one of the worst crises in its history, not only by the extreme violence that killed daily by the fighting stops by constant rivalry of criminal drug cartels, but the emergence of criminal organizations narcolaboratorios installed and cause pollution in river beds, groundwater and the natural habitat of some species.

Elements of the Ninth Military Zone in 2011 achieved the destruction of 66 laboratories and 80 in 2012.

Employees at the Quick System, which was hired by the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) to transfer the toxic substances that are insured by the Army, require that their ability to transport chemicals is superseded by the size the problem.

They say they have stopped collecting the substances seized because their warehouses and the PGR are at maximum capacity and “no longer fit, we cannot go get what they say the military, we have nowhere to put it and the situation is serious because they are about to explode, “said one worker.

The army protects the narcolaboratorios he can find and soldiers often stay months in places nestled in the mountains of Sinaloa, maintaining perimeter security to prevent drug cartels back by the substances and drugs and waiting for the PGR do insurance.

The PGR, by Marisela Morales and the state government headed by Mario López Valdez, not only have committed acts of omission by leaving the lot and while chemicals seized, but to its own staff and the elements Army that is constantly exposed to highly polluting substances.

According to data provided by employees of the company, whose legal guardian and owner Alberto Borrael Bazúa is indicated that the PGR hired to transport the chemicals from the points where they are found the narcolaboratorios, but for lack of advice the Ministry of Environment (SEMARNAT) and the Federal Commission for Protection against Health Risks (Cofepris) substances have not been destroyed, although it is a national security situation.

Currently a warehouse, the delegation itself of the PGR in Sinaloa and military installations guarding the substances as ammonia, hydrochloric acid, tartaric acid, ethyl phenyl acetate, liquid or solid methamphetamine, also known as crystal , caustic soda, mercury and aluminum, among other chemicals.

Workers at the company said that the winery is one thousand square meters, while the PGR shields in its delegation, in a space of 400 meters, packages and thousands of liters of chemicals.

Civil Protection advice Sinaloa say the lack of air conditioning and ventilation has caused gases and chemicals containers can explode at any moment.

Quick System Employees indicate that they should PGR seven million dollars for eight months and the Administrative Office and the Deputy Regional Control of Criminal Procedure and Amparo told that administrative procedures “are so time-consuming.”

Workers exposed to this company are no longer willing to risk his life because “they owe the pattern, we do not get paid salary risk, animals that use chemicals to lower die right away, because the area where vehicles are not covered, and no way to transfer and without economic incentives cannot work. “

Public health problem

To date, the only federal authority that has been made to ensure jobs and slow production of synthetic drugs and substances that are used for this report is the Army.

Sinaloa currently holds second place in the states of northern country with the highest number of car thefts with violence, the third in number of murders linked to organized crime and proliferation of narcolaboratorios second, which has generated a serious public health problem because it pollutes rivers and groundwater because the criminals pulling the chemical waste, which kills dozens of cattle and other livestock and wild animals and farm.

According to the Army, with the change in the operation of organized crime to higher revenues for transfer of synthetic drugs has found that criminal organizations are making their own precursors for the manufacture of methamphetamine and crystal, generating the first time consumed a high addiction and lead to death of people and animals that become contaminated with the chemicals they survive only two to three years.

The Army has found that criminal organizations are developing two precursors themselves without having to import: phenyl acetic acid and methylamine.

Culiacan leads the first in the state with the largest number of labs found, followed Mocorito, Cosalá third, and fourth Badiraguato, although clandestine laboratories were found in nine of 18 municipalities.

Chemicals used by organized crime for the manufacture of synthetic drugs are as dangerous as radioactivity, as only to remain within 50 meters of the deposits cause respiratory distress, central nervous system damage, eye problems and mucous and is related to cancer diagnoses.

There is a substance called red phosphorus practically eats and destroys vital organs.

The PGR has a record of 12 of the “narco cooks,” who are responsible for the development of drug-intoxicated have died from contact with these substances, in which cases have been opened preliminary investigations. These people do not live more than two years from having contact with the chemical precursors, as it affects your airways.

Sinaloa is a state that has historically been positioned as an entity producing drugs, specifically opium poppy and marijuana, or drugs called organic. However, criminal organizations have mutated their activity by the synthetic drugs for higher profits and the ease of transportation.

The commander of the Ninth Military Zone, Brigadier General Marco Antonio Covarrubias Aguilar, states that “from 2007 to the current year, yes, indeed, have soared so-called clandestine laboratories producing methamphetamine, whose inputs are more advantageous for them to obtain higher profits than a plantation of marijuana or opium harvested after three months.”

He adds that “in these clandestine laboratories that called crystal and that develop around a week, i.e. the input to produce methamphetamine find it profitable and easier to transport to market and indeed the state of Sinaloa is a state where they are driving in that order of activity with major impact.”

According to specialists from the Army, for the manufacture of synthetic drugs and precursor chemicals used substances such as mercury, aluminum, hydrochloric acid, tartaric acid, ethyl phenyl acetate, methamphetamine liquid caustic soda, phenyl acetic acid, methylamine and two phenyl propanone.

Criminal organizations use washing machines and dryers for the finished product, but also buy large quantities of aluminum foil, same as crushed to produce the drug.

Proceeds from the sale of synthetic drugs far exceed the price of drugs called organic, for example, while a kilo of marijuana is priced at 71 dollars, the crystal reaches the same amount 42 000 301 U.S. dollars. While a kilo of grass is obtained 834 cigarettes, one kilo of crystal you get three thousand doses.

Brigadier General Marco Antonio Covarrubias Aguilar states that “sometimes we localized citizen complaint, we must be clear, we have located in the daily work of staff in the walking, sometimes with aerial surveys, sometimes by the complaint direct people to report the damage they are causing to the health of the individual, the environment, the habitat in the ecological environment which is already resulting damage.”

In one of the insured narcolaboratorios it was observed that squirrels, voles and birds, among others, were killed in a radius of 50 meters.

General Covarrubias Aguilar notes that “during the rains now we realize that the laboratories placed on dry riverbeds and now with all that water produces a harmful effect we do not know where you are going to stop.”

Nicaragua rules out the presence of the Zetas in the country

Nicaragua rules out the presence of the Zetas in the country

The National Police spokesman denies that the drug cartel attempts or has attempted to settle in the country

MANAGUA, March 10. – Nicaragua denied that the drug cartel “Los Zetas” try or have tried to settle in the country, although the threat is always latent in the opening of narcotics trafficking routes, it was reported here today.

In remarks published Saturday in El Nuevo Diario, the head of public relations for the National Police (PN), Commissioner Fernando Borge said “we have not learned that a structure of ‘Los Zetas’, organized crime, is trying or attempted to settle in our territory.”

“We have said that there is always the threat and (cartels) will be trying to settle,” said Borge.

Police have dismantled 63 drug traffickers operating cells in 255 operations over the past five years.

During this period, were arrested more than 21 thousand 800 people including 435 foreigners, and seized more than $ 27 million in cash, foreign and domestic currency.

Borge warned that the PN is “always working to prevent” drug gangs create social bases in Nicaragua.

According to press reports, a group of 21 farmers in northern Nicaragua was allegedly recruited by this group of drug trafficking and would have forced, under threat, working with a band of international organized crime.

Borge said the peasants were deceived because “we are confident that if these people had told them that they would work for a criminal organization, they would have said no.”

Mexico, Starvation causes more deaths than the drug cartels

MEXICO CITY, Feb. 19. – In Mexico there are more deaths from starvation than caused by the clashes between drug traffickers, according to figures reported from 2001 to 2010.

Starvation in Mexico causes more deaths than Drug cartels
Starvation in Mexico causes more deaths than Drug cartels

According to the Center for Studies on Research in Development and Social Welfare (CEIDAS), and based on data from the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI), in that period 85,343 people died from malnutrition, compared to 49,804 victims by organized crime. Which are the figures that show that deaths from hunger in the last decade are higher by 35,539 compared to those caused by the cartels.

In this regard, the director of CEIDAS, Mario Luis Fuentes, told Excelsior that “there are 12 million Mexicans who do not have enough income to buy basic food basket,” so that “if you do not die from malnutrition, die from diseases generated by it “.

In turn, the UNAM researcher Gustavo Gordillo, who was undersecretary of agriculture in the 90’s, said the problem is not lack of funds, but the “fragmentation” and incoordination of the three levels of government to implement programs social.

He also outlined the difficulties in food started with the reduction of farm subsidies and the drop in production in 1965.

Thus, extreme poverty and limited access to food should be served immediately, sources noted.

Hunger kills more than 35 000 violence

Mexico has faced the loss of 49,804 Mexicans between 2001 and 2010, who died in clashes between drug traffickers, according to data from the PGR and the Chamber of Deputies, but there is a reality that began more lives in the same period: malnutrition, as 85,343 Mexicans died from this cause in the same period, according to data from the Center for Studies and Research in Development and Social Welfare (CEIDAS) and the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI).

At home, the majority of violent deaths appear in the media, are visible, but the 85,343 deaths from malnutrition are barely visible. The phenomenon just jumped to the media with famine suffered by rarámuri in Chihuahua, but for experts is just the first symptom of a national emergency.

“There are 12 million Mexicans who do not have enough income to buy basic food basket,” said Excelsior Mario Luis Fuentes, director of CEIDAS: “If you do not die from malnutrition, die from the disease generated by it,” said the specialist, who also is a researcher and professor at the UNAM.

Extreme poverty and limited access to food is not a blip. It is already a reality in 339 municipalities said Fuentes, for whom this fact shows that “requires a thorough review of all social policy to create a proposal to generate equity. We need a new social covenant established guarantees that meet the rights of the people, “he said.

Sources said that hunger is not only from lack of food, carbohydrates and proteins, “It is also a lack of water means dirt floors, lack of drainage has to do with the care of the household heads, their ability to protect the most vulnerable children, “he said.

In contrast, although the war on drugs has brought an increase of deaths in the past, the figure still does not compare to the famine suffered by some municipalities.

Malnutrition and poverty

For Mario Luis Fuentes, the neglect of the field adds the fragmentation and lack of coordination of social policies. He also stressed that the federal government has no effective mechanism to force states and municipalities to realize what they do with the budget for social spending.

In addition to the crisis in the country and droughts linked to climate change, “there is impairment in social, generated by fragmentation of social programs, the state is responsible because it has the worst service in the places most vulnerable, with less coverage with poorer ability or quality.”

Sources said there was a huge inequality in the Mexican State: “The most in need, have the worst services. The problem today may be emblematic rarámuri in Chihuahua, but there are 339 municipalities where more than 50 percent of the population lives in poverty. We’re talking about people who live daily hunger, “he said. In these municipalities, the indigenous population is particularly affected, it is the people living in remote areas, reported worse with less access to basic services.

The investigator noted that the health INEGI figures state that on average each year die from malnutrition eight thousand Mexicans and from 2001 to 2010 it was 85 000 343 deaths by this factor.

Sources believed that federal officials believe that social policy is correct, that programs are having a real impact on the welfare of the population, although not quite true.
