Yeah, the Zetas were former special forces trained by the US military. Some of them defected from the Mexican army and became henchmen for the Cartel del Golfo before becoming their own cartel but in recent years they've been pretty much wiped out by the other cartels who joined forces to exterminate them.

Didnt the Mexican government manage to capture several of the Zetas leaders before things turned to the worst for the cartel?

Nah, they pretty much wiped themselves out with infighting and the fact thier sadistic leader was captured in June 2013.

los zetas had to be taken out. most run of the mill cartels have military grade weapons and armor, but they lack discipline and training that you learn in a military environment. los zetas actually operated like a military.

when you see them rolling down the street in this, you knew the army was going to have to get involved

this vehicle was confiscated from los zetas
