Helicopter gunships used in Mexico resort battle.

Two government helicopter gunships opened fire on 10 vehicles fleeing a luxury beach condo complex during this week's gun battle at the Gulf of California resort of Puerto Penasco, Mexican authorities said.

This sounds like a first for using that level of force against the cartels in Mexico. I was even considering taking a vacation down there only last year.

I hope they waxed those guys though.

One of Zonie's old hang outs. Mexico may be getting pissed that their tourist business is being effected.
