Mexico Loses a Gun Battle to a Cartel

Speaking of wars and rumors of wars, there's a conflict closer to home that may become a pressing problem.
The eight-hour battle ended when government forces, outgunned and surrounded, without reinforcements or a way to retreat, received an order directly from Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to release their prisoner and surrender.
"Ordered to lay down arms and surrender" is never good, but ordered to surrender to a criminal organization noted for mutilation and beheading?

The Government sent 250 SF to the area yesterday. I hope OBL understands that annihilation is his most appropriate response.

These Mexican government forces are weak. They extort 50% of the income of Mexicans here who send their earnings back home to Mexico. And that's all they can pay for in terms of military firepower?

What a joke.

One of the benefits of OIF is that without training Iraqi local forces, the US military will not be ready for what happens at the Southern border later on.
