"A wonderful family and friends from Utah got caught between two vicious drug cartels, who were shooting at each other, with the result being many great American people killed, including young children, and some missing. If Mexico needs or requests help in cleaning out these monsters, the United States stands ready, willing & able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively. The great new President of Mexico has made this a big issue, but the cartels have become so large and powerful that you sometimes need an army to defeat an army!" -- DJT

This stinks. To say this is a case of mistaken identity stretches the truth to the breaking point. The Mormon community was decades-old. Thus, this clearly was deliberate, imo.

So, what was the intention of the gunners? Who are they? Why did they choose to gun down women and children? What did they hope to gain?

This reeks to high heaven.

Mexican cartel massacre: 9 Americans, including 6 children from Mormon offshoot murdered
At least six children and three women living in a faith-based community of U.S. citizens in Mexico were shot to death Monday in the northern part of the country, and six more children were wounded and one missing after their convoy came under fire during a brazen daylight ambush believed to have been carried out by gunmen affiliated with the cartels.​
Alfonso Durazo, Mexico's top security official, confirmed the six deaths, adding that six more children were wounded in the attack, with five transferred to hospitals in Phoenix, Ariz. One child is still missing.​
Relatives said the victims live in the La Mora religious community in northern Mexico, a decades-old settlement in Sonora state founded as part of an offshoot of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints around 70 miles south of Douglas, Arizona. They said the group was attacked while traveling in a convoy of three SUVs. Durazo said the gunmen may have mistaken the SUV convoy for rival gangs.​
The victims were all reportedly dual Mexican and U.S. citizens and were traveling back to the U.S. when they were ambushed, according to Utah's KUTV.​
...Relatives claim that cartel members kidnapped surviving church members after the initial shootout.​

You're right, this does reek. So many things this could be. Including what's been reported. Rival gangs going into gang area? That's possible. And likely, because of all the drug cartels in Mexico.

That one child that's missing. I didn't catch the age. I hope it's too young to know what's going on. If it's tortured, I hope it doesn't have to suffer long.

Good god, this makes my heart hurt.

Here's the BIG question? Why would a cartel want to stir the ire of the Beast/US? What possibly could they gain?

Yes. It does. But it doesn't change the fact of where they were. Which creates a giant gray area. Was it made to look like a cartel hit? Was it really a mistake? Was it a revenge killing by someone associated with one of the women? From what i've read so far, there is nothing that points to the cartels. Those guys know who is who in any given area. I have some reservations about who is getting blamed here. The cartels operating in the area making a hit like that just messed their own operation up bringing in that kind of attention. You're right. It does stink.

Yep, very little news and you're right. The Mormon group has lived in the area for decades. The cartels undoubtedly know what's going on in the area better than the Mexican government. They know the cars those folks drive, and probably the license plate numbers.

If one cartel wanted to hit another, they'd know exactly what the vehicles were, when they left, and who was in them.

This reeks to high heaven.....
