There’s a disturbing video that’s gone viral on social media. It’s a Mexican TV report that claims dozens of US AT-4 weapons systems that were shipped to Ukraine have been purchased by drug cartels.
A new video shared on social media captured the moment when a member of the Escorpiones faction of the Gulf Cartel walked along a dirt road with what appears to be an anti-tank weapon strapped to his back. The video comes at a time when the Escorpiones, based in Matamoros, have been waging a fierce turf war with the Metros faction from Reynosa over control of lucrative drug and human smuggling corridors.
According to Wikipedia, the AT4 is an unguided, man-portable, disposable, shoulder-fired recoilless anti-tank weapon and looks like this:
Last year, Reuters reported on the news $400 million in weapons Biden sent to Ukraine.
Joe Biden signed a new weapons package worth up to $400 million for Ukraine on Friday, including four additional high mobility artillery rocket systems (HIMARS) and more ammunition.
The new U.S. aid is meant to bolster Ukraine as it confronts heavy pounding by Russian artillery.
Ukraine has a reputation for mass corruption, so there’s a strong possibility that this story is true, even though we can’t confirm it. This Newsweek article, which discusses the rampant corruption in Ukraine was published just 6 months ago.
A major effort to root out corruption is sweeping Ukraine. In recent weeks, leaders have announced the results of several major investigations, as well as firings and resignations across its government.
On January 24, following several prominent corruption scandals, including two major investigations involving the embezzlement of funds, President Volodymyr Zelensky announced “personnel decisions” across different government ministries and within Ukrainian law enforcement. Zelensky also announced that state officials would be banned from traveling internationally for non-government purposes following a report that a now-former top prosecutor vacationed in Spain despite a martial law that bans Ukrainian men ages 18 to 60 from leaving the country without permission.
And let’s not forget when Joe Biden, trying to act tough, shared the story about how he threatened a Ukrainian prosecutor who was looking into Hunter’s crooked business dealings.
It’s hard to deny that, just like the US, Ukraine has its fair share of corruption and is also plagued with politicians on the take. In addition, there’s a lack of proper oversight and transparency when it comes to the money and weapons we’ve provided them. As a result, it’s highly unlikely that we have a clear picture of what’s actually happening in Ukraine.
Support could erode further among Americans and Ukrainians, according to members of Congress and Sopko, without greater transparency and accountability for the tens of billions spent. The costs to American taxpayers can be expected to increase as the Biden administration sends increasingly sophisticated and expensive arms to Ukraine, including Abrams battle tanks.
Assuring that the aid ends up in the right hands, they say, demands greater oversight.
The Biden admin is simply sending money and weapons everywhere, without a care in the world, and this nightmarish “cartel” story might be a direct consequence of the US government’s recklessness.

If this story is true, it means we’ve just armed a bunch of ruthless drug dealers right next door, and they’re now pouring into our country illegally. And while all this is happening, the Biden administration is actively trying to disarm law-abiding Americans. Do you notice a pattern emerging?
