    Postak Drug cartels' new weaponry means war

    Police officers drive past a burning police vehicle in Zihuatanejo, Mexico. In a three-week period, five grenade attacks were launched on police patrols and stations. Narcotics traffickers are acquiring firepower more appropriate to an army -- including grenade launchers and anti-tank rockets -- and the police are feeling outgunned. The Feb. 21 attack on police headquarters in coastal Zihuatanejo, which injured four people, fit a disturbing trend of Mexico's drug wars. Traffickers have escalated their arms race, acquiring military-grade weapons, including hand grenades, grenade launchers, armor-piercing munitions and antitank rockets with firepower far beyond the assault rifles and pistols that have dominated their arsenals.

    Picked up at gunshows through "loophole" purchases by strawmen in the U.S., no doubt
    I have a daughter. I tell her, "911 is what you dial after you're raped. 1911 is what you should have before they try."

    Yep, we've run out of AK's to sell them, so we've now started shipping RPG's and Mortars. We're even sending them to Guatemala first so that they don't suspect that they are really coming from CA and the movie industry there.
