I'm sure you are correct there. It's something I noticed a long time ago. Sinaloa over here, Ndrangheta over there, plus Ontario. Add in the Calabrian infiltration of places like Milan, Germany and they have their own laundering networks as well.
I just notice a lot of guys seem to want to follow who got killed. What faction, how many soldiers, what rank. I just follow the drugs, it leads RIGHT to who's really in charge. Everything else is a realignment of business interest in regards to whomever is controlling the flow of narcotics. That's where the power is. Who has the connect, who can get it from here to there, who can distribute it. Figure those out, and the rank and all that sorts itself out... That's my take on it anyway..
