Now that my wife is back safely I'm changing the title of the thread so it doesn't unnecessarily put a spotlight on me, as if that's what I want, which I don't. Thanks for everyone's help/prayers/kind words.

Hi. Please join me in praying for protection and safety for my wife. She took a trip to Manté, Tamaulipas, Mexico to visit her family. I had to stay back and work but even if I was off, I wouldn't have gone as I would draw unnecessary attention and put us in danger.

As always, my wife drove just across the border, and left her car with some family in Reynosa, Tamaulipas. Then she takes a bus the rest of the way which is about 4 or 5 hours. Now, that USED to be the safest way to go -- other than flying direct which is cost-prohibitive.

But I just heard (and didn't know beforehand) that the Zetas Cartel is targeting buses in Tamaulipas because their rival cartel (Cartel Del Golfo) is busing in reinforcements. The 2 cartels are fighting over all the territories within the state of Tamaulipas. Recently the Zetas stopped multiple buses and gunned down everyone.

So now the buses aren't safe.

My wife already got to Manté but I still worry about her trip back. She said that the whole city of Manté is crawling with Mexican Army -- which is a bad sign yet it's good for safety.

708. Travel warning issued on Mexico (2/23/2012)

The weapons spread by “Operation Fast and Furious” caused a lot of violence in Mexico. Many of them were mass killings. Feds reached their goal- to turn Mexico into a killing field. But Mexico government protested when they found those weapons were from US. The operation went to its end when a US board agent was killed by those weapons.

The House investigates the case. BATF high ranking officers were reassigned. They became scapegoat. The real mastermind – the high ranking officials of D.O.J. , refuse to take responsibility. The Obama Administration has sealed court records. Mainstream media is silent on this case. They put it into a black box. This country is controlled by the D.O.J..

The goal is still there. Though “Fast and Furious” was exposed and failed, the operation continues. Follow the drum beating of Iran war, there is a warning issued this month. From it you may find the real purpose of the “Operation Fast and Furious”.

US increases travel warning to 14 Mexican states
Associated Press – 2/10/2012

MEXICO CITY (AP) — The U.S. State Department is recommending that Americans avoid travel to all or parts of 14 of 31 Mexican states in the widest travel advisory issued since Mexico stepped up its drug war in 2006.
……

It is the first time the State Department listed advisories for each of Mexico's 31 states, including the federal district of Mexico City, where there is no warning.

Mexican official: US travel warning 'ridiculous'
Associated Press – 2/15/2012
MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico's top domestic security official says a U.S. State Department travel warning on almost half of Mexico's states is "ridiculous" and "out of proportion."

http://news.yahoo.com/mexican-official- ... 50173.html

Mexico government doesn’t know it’s an intimidation from the Feds and a plan to justify a possible murder in massive killings and that the “Fast and Furious” targeted only at an individual.

Same here frrostedman. None of us can picture what all that is like south of the border. Hope it all works out without a problem.

I almost wasn't here. I lost my internet and this is my first time posting from my phone. Not sure I like it.

Sorry to hear that bro. I hope you get internet back soon. Phone posting must suck pretty bad.

Well, my wife is in Reynosa close to the border now. Not completely out of the woods but the worst part is over. This was so nerve racking because I lose touch with her during the entire trip and she was supposed to be in TX by now. I was sweating bullets.

Enough of this. This was her 3rd trip in 2011 and each trip is a roll of the dice. I can tell she's feeling a little overconfident. We're going to have to cut these down.

Also I hear that Calderon will likely lose his re-election bid as Mexican President, and his replacement is already vowing to lay the guns down and quit fighting the cartels. We all know what that means. Mexico will basically be run completely by the cartels.
