Reports of El Chapo Threatening ISIS Proven False
Mexican drug lord El Chapo sent a threatening message to ISIS after his Middle East drug shipments were reportedly destroyed by the terrorist group.
“I pity the next son of a whore that tries to interfere with the business of the Sinaloa Cartel.”
FOX News Latino reported:
Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzman has a lot of enemies: the Mexican government, the Drug Enforcement Administration, Donald Trump.
But now the world’s most powerful drug trafficker is taking one what is arguably the world’s most feared organization, ISIS.
Chapo’s anger toward the radical jihadist group does not stem from some sense of altruism for the victims of the recent attacks in Paris or San Bernardino, but instead from concerns about his bottom line after ISIS destroyed several of his Sinaloa Cartel’s drug shipments moving through the Middle East.
In a harshly worded email to ISIS, which was leaked by the website Cartel Blog, Guzmán sent a stark warning to ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi about messing with the cartel’s business.
“You [ISIS] are not soldiers,” Guzmán purportedly wrote. “You are nothing but lowly p**. Your god cannot save you from the true terror that my men will levy at you if you continue to impact my operation.”
Guzmán added: “My men will destroy you. The world is not yours to dictate. I pity the next son of a whore that tries to interfere with the business of the Sinaloa Cartel. I will have their heart and tongue torn from them. It looks like it’s on.”
The Sinaloa Cartel is considered the world’s largest drug trafficking organization, with operations running throughout the Americas, Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia. In the Middle East, the cartel has become a major provider of cocaine, ecstasy and other so-called party drugs to oil-rich princes and businessmen throughout the region.
