More War On The Home Front
As goals are acheived in the Global War on Terror, or the War for Survival, the progression has been first Afghanistan, then Iraq. The question has been who/where will be next in line as the United States addresses the issue. Will it be Iran? Syria? Korea? Regardless that all of these need to be confronted, maybe, just maybe, the next area will be Mexico.|
Yesterday I wrote about an article by Mariano Castillo, staff writer for the San Antonio Express-News, speaking of "Mexican presidential hopeful Jorge Castañeda ", and an offer to assist the U.S. in the illegal immigrant problem. Today's World Net Daily has an article discussing the reasoning behind possible war with Mexico to curtail illegal immigration, driven by economic, politicial, and social pressures.
I would suggest that El Presidente Fox become more concerned about the flow northward before the United States is forced into action. The other option may be a repeat of history, with U.S. Marines once again at the Halls of Montezuma, and the Regiment of Mounted Rifles (3d ACR) at the gates of Mexico City.Mentioned prominently in this article are the Zetas, or Los Zetas (NOT these Zetas):
Can you say "Oops!" Not only the seeming indifference of the Mexican (AND U.S.) government, but organizations such as these, and the Salvadoran Mara Salvatrucha 13, must be confronted.
The unchecked flow of illegal immigrants across our borders will eventually, if not already, include those with terrorist ties intent on causing harm to the United States. These borders WILL be closed. The only question is whether they will be closed BEFORE or AFTER a terrorist strike where open borders can be identified as partially causal. That choice is now ours, but may not remain ours for long.
