Over the course of the past year or more, I have linked to reports coming out of Mexico as it descends into complete lawlessness and anarchy. The brutality and the magnitude of the violence that is tearing that beautiful land apart is unimaginable for the majority of people in this world expcept those who have witnessed it first-hand. It brings to my mind a scene out of the movie Apocalypse Now with skewered heads of beheaded people littering the landscape as far as the eye could see. Tragically I believe what is happening in Mexico is but a preview of the violence that is in store for the whole world.______________________________________________________________

(Reuters) - Suspected drug gang killers dumped 49 headless bodies on a highway near Mexico's northern city of Monterrey in one of the country's worst atrocities in recent years.
The mutilated corpses of 43 men and 6 women, whose hands and feet had also been cut off, were found in a pile on a highway in the municipality of Cadereyta Jimenez in the early hours of Sunday, officials from the state of Nuevo Leon said.
"What's complicating the identification of all the people was that they were all headless," said Jorge Domene, the Nuevo Leon government's spokesman for public security, who said the other body parts were missing.
