Postby shawngee03 » Tue Nov 23, 2010 12:38 pm

i live in Houston, and used to go to South Padre(southern tip of texas) for spring break. at night, we would walk across the border to a border town called Matamoros. well...i guess not anymore.

amazing to see how bad its gotten. just a matter of time until the violence comes across the border ... 0410457562

On a recent day, unknown assailants threw a grenade at an army base in the border city of Matamoros, just across from Brownsville, while cartel gunmen fought in broad daylight in Reynosa, the state's biggest city.

The armed forces have scored some successes. Earlier this month, about 660 Mexican Navy special forces fought a 10-hour battle in the streets of Matamoros with some 300 gunmen from the Gulf Cartel. Fearing stray bullets, the University of Texas at Brownsville on the other side of the Rio Grande suspended classes. The battle ended with the death of one of the cartel's top leaders, Ezequiel Cárdenas Guillén, known as Tony Tormenta
