We received unconfirmed drone footage that reportedly shows the Mexican Army trafficking arms directly to members of a criminal cartel organization.
The incident was reportedly recorded in the state of Michoacán and the illicit weapons were given to members of the Unidos Cartel, an umbrella group composed of sicarios from the Sinaloa Cartel, Gulf Cartel, and Knights Templar Cartel.
The Unidos Cartel is at war with the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG), which is currently the most powerful criminal gang in all of Mexico. If the footage is authentic, the Mexican military may be trying to use the Unidos to weaken the CJNG through well-equipped fighting.
In many places the Mexican military has stopped directly fighting against the cartels by means of an unofficial non-aggression pact. The Mexican Army's operations in western Mexico consist mainly of driving the cartel boundary lines in a vain attempt to stifle fighting between opposing groups while turning a blind eye to their meth-making, extortion, and murder.
Even as we see Mexican soldiers arming the cartels directly, the corrupt Mexican government ridiculously filed a lawsuit against US arms manufacturers accusing them of knowingly contributing to illegal gun trafficking and fueling violence in the country.
