This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Warning, explicit violence.

The Cartel executed 17 in a wake, and then proceeded to clean the streets. Our El Presidente, despite video evidence claims there's no evidence of any deaths... FUCK this asshole and those who voted him in power.

Mexico rebels against the politically correct Mexican soccer federation
« Reply #346 on: March 24, 2022, 02:51:42 PM »
LOL, for once my paisanos are united against the politically correct establishment. The soccer fans are going to the stadium to scream eeeeeeeeeeeeee "gamer word" (F4g*7) to make the FIFA ban the national selection due to several murders that took place during a soccer game recently and the federation did nothing.

Fiery but mostly peaceful protests by the Cartels

This is Mexico, we have no 2nd Ammendment, only the criminals own firearms. (You can get a gun IF the government lets you buy it from them but can't carry and if you use it for self defense you go to jail)

Geeky, what the hell is REALLY happening in Mexico?

The U.S. Consulate General Tijuana is aware of reports of multiple vehicle fires, roadblocks, and heavy police activity in Tijuana, Mexicali, Rosarito, Ensenada, and Tecate. U.S. government employees have been instructed to shelter in place until further notice.
https://thelibertydaily.com/americans-told-to-shelter-in-place-as-tijuana-burns/

The article claims all this began in prisons?

The violence began on Thursday in a Ciudad Juarez prison when the Sinaloa Cartel, formerly led by infamous Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, and Los Mexicles began feuding, leading to a riot that left two dead and 16 injured, according to the Times of San Diego. The violence then spread out of the prison and into the city streets of Juarez, where gang members killed an additional nine people, most of them civilians.

Here's more footage of actual attacks NSFW.

That's pretty accurate from what I know.

Then again you can't really trust the media (and the Mexican press is no better than yours) so who knows if this is what it looks like.

Very interesting, Hermano!

Spinachcat beat me to the punch! I was reading news articles exactly about what is going in in Tijuana and Juarez, and I thought, I need to ask GeekyBugle about this! ;D

I read where the Mexican government sent Army troops into Juarez!?

Keep us posted on whatever you can discover, GeekyBugle!

The Army and the National Guard were sent to Baja California, probably someplace else too.

We can thank our beloved comrade leader El President for his policy of "Hughs not Bullets" (Literal translation of Abrazos no Balazos).

Imagine having the Commiefornia shitheads in charge of all your country and the states not being able to do their own thing. Well that's México in a nutshell.

Geesus. I just read a news article where El Presidente has done something or other to bypass Mexico's Congress, and place the Mexican National Guard under Army control and supervision.

As an American, anytime US National Guard units enter into joint operations with US Army forces, it is customary for such National Guard units to be placed under Army command. Just as an operational note.

In Mexico's particular circumstances, I hate to sound like a tyrant monster, but the domestic security situation warrants pulling off the gloves. Fuck the politics, laws, or wiggling fucking talking heads. The bloodshed, chaos, and terror throughout Mexico demands absolute, decisive action, NOW, and ongoing, to get the fucking job done. That's not to say that such measures and operation aren't a long time in coming--such a serious and bloodthirsty, iron determination should have been embraced *years ago*.

I feel so bad about the absolute mass injustice and corruption going on in Mexico. I have ultimately thought though, that somehow, eventually, it really is only a problem that will be solved by the Mexican people, especially in the lower levels of society, and at the local level--neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city--with enough people simply being absolutely committed to ending the fucking cartels. For reference, in American history, whenever the Federal government was too distant, too uncaring, or otherwise too preoccupied to handle local security matters--whether such were caused by rebels, outlaw gangs, or bands of savage Indians, it was often the local government and people that organized and fought, and took care of the problem. I'm guessing that such a course of action and rock-hard determination at being independent and getting the problem taken care of will be necessary for Mexico.

This bullshit chaos and mayhem has been going on down there in Mexico *for years now*. So frustrating and tragic.

There's almost zero firearms in the hands of law abiding citizens, and I fear most of them don't know how to use them.

Which is why I'm hopping Trump runs and wins, maybe then we can convince him of drone striking the Cartels in their lairs. Turn them to dust.

And if someone wants to fill the void rinse and repeat, until they get the message and stop dealing in drugs or trafficking people.

The funny things is the National Guard was supossed to be a type of police not part of the army because El Presidente was against militarizing law enforcement and wanted to take the Army/Navy out of the streets (and he did it, which is why now it's worst than it ever was).

Many of us think El Presidente is in the pocket of one Cartel or the other.
