Is the Mexican Army Allied with the Cartels?

Members of the Mexican military appear to have some type of relationship with one of the dominant cartels in this southern state which is fighting for control of lucrative drug territories.

A series of exclusive photographs obtained by Breitbart Texas reveal what appears to be amicable interactions between 43rd Military Region soldiers and members of Los Viagras, the armed wing of La Nueva Familia Michocacana. The photographs come at a time when Michoacan continues to see a high level of cartel violence including fierce gun battles and gruesome executions.

One of the photographs shows Los Viagras top leader Nicolas “El Gordo” Sierra Santana talking with two soldiers. During the apparent conversation, Sierra is seen with a rifle strapped around his neck, surrounded by several of his gunmen in civilian clothing. Sierra Santana is a former self-defense group member who has since switched sides to become a leading drug lord in Michoacan.

Since switching sides to helm Los Viagras, Sierra Santana has been listed as one of Mexico’s most wanted drug lords. He has managed to avoid capture as he leads a war against Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion (CJNG).
