Terrorism at the U.S. -Mexico border
The terrorist attacks upon the United States of America, as perpetrated by Al Qaeda operatives on September 11, 2001, has resulted in profound changes of policy and_ action in Washington. The blissful ignorance of many was awaken to the shattering reality of the threat from unconventional warfare at the hands of extremist organizations. The following review and analysis of terrorism at the U.S.-Mexico border seeks to assess the threat on a more personal basis. All too often we associate terrorism with the Middle East and Asia, not coming to grips with realities faced close to home on a daily basis. The terrorist acts of violence by both criminal and religious extremist groups are resulting in a massive loss of life throughout the world. This paper seeks to address those acts of terror and violence on our southern border. While international terrorist groups have yet to succeed in another attack on American soil, many experts believe that it is now only a matter of time.
