[[WMG: The drug deal turned shootout was caused by a double cross.]]
First of all, it is implied that the Matacumbe Petroleum Group is new to the drug trade. They put a transponder into the money, showing a lack of trust, the two managerials sent to recover the money are incompetent, the man who hires Wells is blustery and arrogant, and they hire Anton Chigurh, with whom they apparently have no experience. It seems likely that the Juarez Cartel saw an easy chance to take advantage of this Texan corporation, who obviously would have no legal recourse, by setting up the deal with the intention of killing their agents and stealing an easy $2.4 million. This is compounded by the fact that they recover their heroin shortly afterwards and yet they tell Matacumbe that it was stolen as well. Obviously they did not count on their own men getting killed during the double cross, or on a local resident stumbling across the money. The story, which takes place in 1980, manages to subtly weave in a background plotline about the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive corporate crime]] and [[TheCartel violent drug cartels]] that will become prominent in TheEighties.

As bad as Chigurh is, he has some form of moral code which he sticks to at all costs and refrains from engaging in what he sees as pointless cruelty and bloodshed (emphasis on [[BlueAndOrangeMorality what he sees as pointless]], wheras the Judge has no such code, and his actions are [[UpToEleven far, far worse.]]

* It's not necessarily those that just stand up to him. The landlady clearly had her own code that she would not bend on. Given his obsessive adherence to his own code, he may have just respected her for having and sticking to her own.

For those who haven't seen Usual Suspects, here be spoilers. [[spoiler: Chigurh has a mythic, boogeyman persona to the point where no one is completely sure of what he looks like or even if he's real, just like Keyser. After dealing with his rivals in Hungary and the death of his family, he assumes the life of a hitman in the US while he laid low and built his empire. Notice the mind games and cold-blooded method in which he kills people, similar to Keyer's MO. In the flashback sequence in Usual Suspects, we don't see Keyer's face but we do see that he has long hair. Keyser got it cut a little once he left his homeland, although he wasn't sure of the fashions of the US, resulting in a horrible hairstyle. As he spent the 80's in America, his accent improved to the point where he could speak fluently with a standard American dialect by the time the mid-90's rolled around. As to why he doesn't look like KevinSpacey, it's simple: MagicPlasticSurgery. In Usual Suspects, he was trying to kill one person who saw his face. How did he know what he looked like, he was his plastic surgeon.]]
