The leader arrived in his own truck and handed the co-pilot a plastic bag that looked like a kilogram of cocaine, apparently meant for “soldiers”.

CJNG operators understand brute force; for the moment, They don’t bother the residents of Aiguilla much., because it is not necessary. but If they suspect someone is actively working for Viagra or giving them information, that person’s life expectancy is likely to be very short,

Local chiefs refute the government‘s claim that cartels like Jalisco are having trouble recruiting youth because of the current administration’s employment and training programs for them.

,It depends on the type of youth“, he says. Some go with it (scholarships, or youth building a future program), he explains, “but others, people who sleep under bridges come here and think they are in paris‘Here is the food”, he added.

“I make it clear to my people that they come here to fight,” he says.

Beyond food, regular pay and unlimited medicines, The CJNG also provides a kind of family structure to its young soldiers., Everyone, including the local boss, refers to their immediate superior as “Apa”, the way a child would say “Papa”.

Too many united cartel like from Jaliscos Bomb-carrying drones have been developed, and the most feared warrior in these battlefields is the “drone”, the operator of these devices. Warfare has improved with this type of equipment, and it is not uncommon to see barn roofs or metal sheds open like cans from the effects of drone explosions.

Locals also claim, although there is little evidence beyond a few potholes on the roads, that Cartels are starting to use landmines,

In view of this, the Mexican government has resorted to a powerful letter to contain the CJNG: helicopters black falcon Equipped with rotating-barrel electric machine guns that can fire 6,000 rounds per minute.

that Weapons are banned in most countries in civil conflicts. this is the type of rifle that the president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador He says he doesn’t want to anymore. But for the time being, it is such a huge armed force that is holding back the CJNG.

,we set fire to two trucks“The boss of the local gang said about the machine guns. When wachos (soldiers) from the helicopter, with the minigun, nothing to do there, you stand aside”.

It is not clear if it will remain like this for long. CJNG is known for two things: to be Mexico’s most armed cartel and the only one to have shot down a military helicopter, as they did in 2015 and killed eight soldiers as well as a policeman.

The firepower of this group includes light machine guns, .50 caliber sniper rifles and 40 mm grenades and launchers.

The government, fearing the kind of bloodshed that began in 2018 when the Jalisco cartel moved to neighboring Guanajuato state, now has an impractical policy of protecting the gang’s territorial divisions and a narrow military leadership.

An army captain, who did not give his name and tried to speak to Aguilla demonstrators, expressed the position.

,How are we going to allow Mexicans to kill each other?Said, “It just can’t be.”

However, residents are caught in a drug war with no immediate option to ensure their free movement.

One determining factor is that he suspects officials of complicity with the United Cartel. The fight has thus been escalated to the point of desperation, where the only way out seems to be pax narca,
