Who Do You Trust?

Great news for the people of Juarez! Those soldiers who burst into your home to rape, pillage and murder may in fact just be narcotraffickers pretending to be soldiers to discredit the Army.

The Mexican military issued a troubling warning yesterday, saying it expected narcos in Ciudad Juarez to begin dressing up as soldiers, raiding homes and businesses and committing human rights violations as part of a campaign to disparage the Mexican Army.

Of course, it's equally likely that the Army issued this warning in order to blame their actual human rights violations on the narcos, in order to discredit them.

Either way, now might be a good time to get out of Juarez.
