As far as national security goes, I think that every highway, every major traffic corridor is of concern. In fact, if you think about it, there are
literally hundreds of security risks that are of concern and there really isn't anything that anyone can do except to remain vigilant; railroads,
canals, rivers, shipping lanes, ports etc. Hell, the list is endless. When you think about the extent of security risks that exist, one would
quickly realize that it is impossible to protect them all.
As far as building a NAFTA super highway, I don't see this as any more or less vulnerable than the tens of thousands of miles of railways that exist
in the US. If anything, the railways are actually more vulnerable to terrorist attack simply due to the vast areas of relative isolation that so many
rail lines run through. How does one protect these? Considering the vast quantities of dangerous and volitile materials that are shipped by rail,
one could readily identify rail as a terror target. To destroy key railways could easily disrupt trade and, thus, affect the national economy quite
A NAFTA superhighway is definitely a terror security risk but it would not be any more or less vulnerable than other identified possible targets.
