the USA justification to retaliate in kind. So now you are left with conventional weapons and means.
I mentioned the countries that I did as such for valid and good reasons. Cuba, has only had one major country it has been against, and that is the
USA. Thus its spies only have to infiltrate and learn information from one country and is far better than the Soviet Union or any other country for
that matter. Even the experts at the CIA would point that out, as they have been trying to capture them, with little to no success at all. And most
of the valuable information needed is not classified at all, but simply pick up a news paper or look on the internet to find out about such.
China is a power player and one that could put a hurt on the USA in ways we are just beginning to suspect. They have a strong economic leverage on
the USA, holding some 1.3 trillion dollars in our debt in their hands. Now they have been making incursions into other areas, and including
territorial waters, contested islands. So they make a deal with the Japanese, add in a few other things, in exchange for the debt that it holds on
the USA. Seems innocent, things are transferred to them and now they hold about 2 trillion of the USA debt. Then announce that they want full
repayment of the debt, putting a strain on the economy of the USA, not just the interest, but full repayment.
Russia sits on a large and vast untapped natural resources, it could use, and would. Though neither China or Russia would be interested in going to
war with the USA, as it would leave them vulnerable to the others attack, so they would not be willing to march men over, but shipping resources, that
is another story. Course then there are the other countries, like Iran, that could make things hard, by putting a strangle hold on the Strait of
Hormuz, especially if they can get Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States to back their play, there is a good chance that they could do such, thus creating
an oil shortage coming from the middle east, and putting more pressure on the USA and other countries. Russia holds a few resources it can use to
blackmail Europe with, and ultimately start to set the stage.
Now we come to North Korea and Israel, along with the island nation of Taiwan. North Korea, with the backing of China and Russia launches an all out
attack on South Korea, forcing the USA to divert military to support the South, along with NATO. China takes on Taiwan, forcing the USA into a 2
front battle, and finally several Islamic states start a hot war against Israel making the USA divert more attention there, to keep it busy. So if
the USA if having to ship military to other parts of the world and losing manpower and resources, with no money to borrow from countries, how does it
defend an attack from Mexico?
Think about it, many of the countries in Latin and South America are joined together in an alliance, and the USA is not popular down there, so it
would not be unfeasible for them to move and provide manpower to do such. The government of Mexico is corrupt, and using prisoners to do a frontal
assault, if not go into the USA to cause chaos is not unrealistic, and would be what I would do. So they get rid of the criminal population by
sending them north, with the promise of a pardon for assisting in this, along with pay, and the ability to get revenge on the country that is
responsible for them being put into prison in the first place. That is a win/win. And with the mass chaos going all out, as they would have military
hardware, then all the armed forces would have to do, is simply start to make strategic strikes on key infrastructure and roll on in. By the time the
USA could react, they would be firmly entrenched and the people behind the lines would be scrambling to get out of the line of fire.
What do you think people are going to do, stay and fight, or ensure the safety of their families first. So most people would first want to ensure the
safety of their families before moving on to try to defend against an invasion. And if communications and other infrastructures are being taxed if
not down, good chance that each and every day leads to a better chances of victory for those invading, especially if they can get the population that
already is not happy with the federal government on their side. Know any groups that hate the government right now what would love to take it all
down and reform such in their view point? I see a lot of them.
