Working together these two organizations knew nearly everything about each other ranging from their hide outs, what officers were on their pay roll, and many other secretive things they worked with.
With heat being a problem for these drug lords, El Senor de Los Cielos planned on altering his appearance to prevent any violence possible and also help him feel safer and not getting caught. Furthermore the death of “the Lord of The Skies” was believed to have been due to a surgery that went wrong when he was trying to alter his appearance. Later the two doctors who had worked on his surgery were found dead with their arms and legs bound. Problems arose for Los Beltran Leyva and El Chapo Guzman when other cartels began trying to challenge existing cartels by starting a war over territory and routes. This new Cartel that came in to challenge some of the existing cartels was known as the Gulf Cartel. The Gulf Cartel soon began paying American trained soldiers great amounts of money so that they could work for them as hired guns against the Sinaloan cartel. These newly hired guns were then known as “Los Zetas.” Los Zetas used to be a part of the military, and large numbers of these joined Los Zetas as hit man.

This occurred because Calderon began imprisoning many drug traffickers and also got rid of a large amount of federal soldiers. The response in the eyes of the Drug traffickers was to fight back and not allow for any threats to bring them down. This resulted in the attacks of more politicians, government officials, and senior law enforcement officials. This sparked a great violence with many Cartels against government officials. They began killing and dumping bodies over the city were people were able to see this to strike fear in the eyes of the public. Many of these killings resulted in violence within the cartels and the cartels tried to show one another who was more powerful than the other.
