What extreme and uncontained replies? A nuke?
First of all, the prevailing winds come from Canada, so even if chicago or albany or boston or seattle got wacked, the winds would travel south away
Mexico is already attacking the US economically and ecologically. You see when the mexicans burn to make room for cattle raising, the smoke drifts
into Texas, creating dense smog and respitory problems for Texans. A very subtle attack don'tcha think?
Canada isn't known for messing with other people's countries, so "terrorists" really have
no reason to mess with them. Same goes true for Mexico, since apparently Mexico is
a source of income to the "terrorists" through drug money.
Mexico and Canada already have their own "Terrorists" thanks to the United States Drug Prohibition, providing a black market economy for criminal
organizations. These criminal organizations like the mafia that grew to power out of the American Prohibition of Alcohol, like to kill, rape, rob,
blow stuff up, whatever it takes to maintain their power. All empowered by American laws, and sometimes even American government agencies. For
instance, drug "investigations" can go on for years, and during those years, US agents will transact millions of dollars with these cartels and
gangs, these millions of dollars pay for assassinations, weapons, explosives, you name it.
Doesn't seem to bother the DEA to do this one bit, after all they do not get their mandate from, nor do they serve the citizens of the United States,
they serve the President, as does the NSA, the FBI, the CIA, DHS, etc etc etc.
