The alleged deals between Abigael Gonzalez Valencia, leader of Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) and the federal authorities, to provide data that presumably clarifies the disappearance of the 43 normalistas from Ayotzinapa, has set off alarms at various levels of government due to the disputes that could be generated with its strongest competition, the Sinaloa Cartel.
In addition, the gesture of the authorities to transfer him from the Altiplano prison to the Diamante module of Santa Martha Acatitla in Mexico City has been a gratuitous provocation to the transnational company led by Ishmael the Mayo Zambada.
The organization that has become the largest player in the trafficking of cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin and fentanyl could violently confront the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel, which is presumed to have gained hegemony due to its links with the authorities.
Until very recently the corrupting power of the organization of Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, the Mencho, used to be kept at local levels; however, in recent times it has touched federal spheres.
El Cuini would be having deals with federal authorities.
Like many other stories, that of the Sinaloa Cartel and its enemies in Jalisco went through friendship, betrayal and death. The leader of the CJNG, Nemesio Oseguera, the Mencho, was a hitman of Orlando the Lobo Nava Valencia, ringleader of the extinct Millennium Cartel, which in turn was the armed wing of the Sinaloans to export drugs to the United States.
The Mencho betrayed his boss and created his own criminal organization: he established Jalisco as a center of operations and formed several cells and placed them under the command of Joaquin the Chapo Guzman and the Mayo Zambada.
In 2010, both cartels broke their ties. Since then, they started a war to control the regions of Mexico. The dispute of these criminal organizations can be seen in Aguascalientes, Sonora, Sinaloa, Baja California, Baja California Sur, Jalisco, Quintana Roo, Colima and Zacatecas.
In this last entity – of 1,622 million inhabitants – criminals started a war in 2015, but the violence worsened last year, when at least 80 men from the CJNG arrived in the state controlled mostly by the Mayo Zambada.
The Uppsala University, in Sweden (Europe) which has a Conflict Monitoring Department ensures, however, that the organization currently led by Ismael Zambada Garcia and the children of Joaquín Guzmán Loera – currently sentenced to life imprisonment – has other fronts in the country.
According to the mapping of the institution, from 2011 to 2019 the Sinaloa Cartel registered at least 1,569 clashes with different criminal organizations. The highest number of crashes have been reported with the CJNG, with 644. Followed by Juarez Cartel (508), with whom he fights for control of the border area of Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua.
In 2008, he started the bloodiest war that the Sinaloa Cartel has ever faced: the fight with the organization of the Beltrán Leyva with which, according to the Conflict Monitoring, it had 142 violent events from 2011 to 2019.
The conflict began after the capture of Alfredo Beltrán Leyva, the Mochomo, who was then the main operator of the criminal group with the same name and one of the most important criminal bosses of the Sinaloa Cartel.
That capture would unleash an unprecedented war within CDS, which would reach its maximum point of tension on May 8, 2008, when a group of hitmen shot and killed Edgar Guzman Lopez, son of Chapo.
The war separated the Beltrán Leyva from the Sinaloa Cartel, which eventually led to a war for the states of Sonora and Sinaloa.
The University of Uppsala establishes that other organizations with which the Sinaloans have clashed are Los Zetas, the Gulf Cartel and La Mochomera.
Even when the main leaders of the Sinaloa Cartel have fallen in recent years, the Sinaloa drug traffickers continue to control the main markets in Mexico and the United States.
