Accepting, in this hypothetical situation, that a terror group called the the "Mexibolah" existed, if frequent missile attacks were launched from
Mexico into the United States, I think that things would go this way;
First, the U.S. would place demands upon the Mexican government to stop these attacks and to disarm this hypothetical terror group.
If the Mexican government was unwilling or unable to disarm this terror group, then the U.S. government would be forced to take action to stop the
missile attackes themselves.
The U.S. would probably utilize satellite imagery to pin-point Mexibolah rocket sites. The sites that Mexibolah typically used would be placed under
surveillance, using drones and, on the ground, special forces units. When terror activity was noticed, the sites would be destroyed along with active
If terror activity continued. That is, if missiles continued to rain down on Southern U.S. states, one could reasonably expect that the U.S.
government would use means to use active surveillance; special forces, c.i.a. infiltration, drones, and paid informants to identify, map and catalog
Mexibolah strongholds, officers, supply depots and individual members.
I would expect that, in advance of any further escalation, surgical strikes as well as key assasinations would be used to eliminate as much Command
and Control facilities and personnel as possible.
Should attacks against the U.S. continue -- especially if Americans were kidnapped -- then the Mexibollah Terror Group as well as the Mexican
government could clearly expect that the U.S. would marshall forces and direct an attack against the Mexibollah Terror Group through an air and ground
Ironically, I can envision that there would be striking parallels between the events in Lebanon and this scenario. Bombing populated areas would be
necessary if the terror group, Mexibollah, was hiding weapons, munitions and personell in the midst of populated centers.
Whereas I can't envision Israel trying to to destabilize or overthrow the Lebonese government and it's fragile democratic system, I can, on the
other hand see the U.S. trying to overthrow and replace the inept and outwardly corrupt Mexican government with a new regime. Strangely, I don't
believe that the U.S. goal in this would be to set up a "puppet regime" but a regime that actually was not corrupt. Corruption, I would have to
say, is one of the prime reasons why Mexico is a country that is locked in a cycle of poverty. To bring corruption down to "acceptable" levels is
Mexico is a rich country through resources and geographical position. These riches have been mismanaged and the "spoils" have never had the
opportunity to "trickle down" to the common man creating a vast class of people enmeshed in poverty and discontent -- the seeds of Mexibollah's
existence, no doubt.
