There are so many people on this board with great knowledge on the Cartels, so im hoping someone can shed some light on questions I have.
Originally the Gulf Cartel started with several groups which were placed in control of various plazas.
Los Metros in Matamoros, Los Rojos in Reynosa, Los Lobos in Nuevo Laredo and Los Tangos in Tampico.
(Were there anymore?, Im not sure what Los Zetas were placed in control of or were they just bodyguards?)
Where did other groups such as Los Ceros and Los Gamas originate from?
I know some groups were sub-groups or successor groups of others, such as Grupo Kalimanes who originated from Los Tangos.
So many groups and so many sub-groups, its difficult to establish who they are and where they came from.
Hope someone can help.
