May 16th 2012 quote Borderland Beat "Mexican soldiers on Tuesday detained retired general Tomas Angeles Dauahare and general Roberto Dawe Gonzalez and turned them over to the country's organized crime unit, military and government officials said.
Angeles Dauahare was No. 2 in the armed forces under President Felipe Calderon and helped lead the government's crackdown on drug cartels after soldiers were deployed to the streets in late 2006. He retired in 2008.
Dawe Gonzalez, still an active duty general, led an elite army unit in the western state of Colima and local media said he previously held posts in the violent states of Sinaloa and Chihuahua."
Not the privates but the big boys, there are several very high profile Generals, that are spending a long time in Jail.
The point I am trying to make, yes the young soldiers are good and okay, Why? they, not like the police are under 24 hour a day control by these guys above the same as any young soldier in any Army. But there main purpose is to kill It depends on there training, I have been to many schools in the US Army with Mexican soldiers, and also there experience level depends on the shoot first idea. My objection with the Army has to do with my experience with my many years with the US Army, Vietnam, Free fire zones, shoot anything that moves. It moves shoot it, of course they are going for the bad guys, but don't be near if you are walking down the street, you are moving?. The Mexican police are not trained with that attitude, they want to detain you and arrest you, this is one of the main reasons why the US Army isn't allowed to operate in the US, the training, the tactics, and purpose is complete different
