Mexico, Pakistan face 'rapid and sudden' collapse: Pentagon
Barry Artiste Op-Ed
Yeah, well like this is news to everyone where lawlessness was allowed to fester for so long, the foxes have taken over the hen house. Greed and Corruption, a cliche, yet seem to go hand in hand in both countries.
It is a given if a westerner happens to visit either of these two countries, you go at your own risk, our Consulates warn Westerners time and time again, yet North Americans still flock there thinking it cant happen to me, until they are either kidnapped, assaulted or killed, then they cry to their respective countries to help them. Should we intervene in these two countries, certainly past and present history has shown to stay out of anothers countries affairs, lest we lose everything, including our troops.
Mexico and Pakistan are not alone in this current strife many countries are undergoing the same issues. Funny how many of these countries deride the West, yet when the Feces Hits the Fan, the West is the most stable and most favoured place to immigrate too. How Hypocritical of them, come here and carry out your protests on our soil in relative safety and security, yet when we act on your behalf, we get protests from both sides, it is a lose, lose situation.
Best let well enough alone and let god sort it out, after all that is what a lot of the fighting is about in most cases. God and Drugs.
A new Pentagon report that tries to predict the type of challenges the U.S. military will face over the next 25 years warns that Mexico and Pakistan could face a "rapid and sudden" collapse.
"The Mexican possibility may seem less likely, but the government, its politicians, police and judicial infrastructure are all under sustained assault and pressure by criminal gangs and drug cartels," the assessment of worldwide security threats says. "How that international conflict turns out over the next several years will have a major impact on the stability of the Mexican state."
"Any descent by Mexico into chaos would demand an American response based on the serious implications for homeland security alone," it adds. However, a similar scenario in Pakistan would be catastrophic.
