Vulnerable border few troops available to us to protect

I reported in the Laguna Journal as syndicated worldwide in March 2008 states U.S. Northern Command and the North American Aerospace Defense are charged with protecting our southern border with Mexico. The U.S. Army was able and willing to answer specially trained fast response U.S. Army military units. These forces are already in place with the heart of power are concentrated in El Paso and southern New Mexico with an enormous responsibility that rests in eastern Texas to southern California.

However, few days after the newspaper report retiring Gen. Richard A. Cody, Army chief of staff vice president told Congress that "preparation of the military is dangerously low." An assessment lasts one week before Gen. David H. Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, was to testify on the progress of the war, the Army vice chief of staff, said the deployment of strong are causing "incredible stress" soldiers and families, and they pose "significant risk" of the nation's military all-volunteer.

Senior Army and Leaders Marine also said that the increase of more than 30,000 troops in Iraq and Afghanistan has put unsustainable levels of stress on ground forces U.S. and has made available to fight other conflicts at the lowest level in years.

USAF General Victor E. Renuart Jr., commander the United States Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Commander told the press that foot. Bliss First Armored Division soldiers, as well as missile defense unit new, and F-22 Raptors that are stationed at Holloman Air Force Base will be available to defend national security. Have recently been organizing and immediately available as emergency "on call" units for use against terrorist threats on the border of the nation. He indicated threats uncovered along the border with Mexico that he would not discuss details. But he said many agencies, including JTF-North, have made "a very difficult border for someone to exploit."

The commander said that while there may be specific, transnational threats are activities conducted by individuals or groups that involve international terrorism, drug trafficking, alien smuggling, weapons of mass destruction, and includes delivery systems such weapons that threaten the national security of the United States. We will not at this time identify specific threats for reasons of safety. In identifying threats, which could, in fact, revealing that employ tactics that do not want our opponents to know. Over time, some of the threats interdiction may in fact be declassified and acknowledged in the free press by the primary or lead federal law enforcement agencies, or by USNORTHCOM / JTF-North.

NORTHCOM was created after the attacks of September 11, 2001, to provide for the defense of the United States to provide military support to civil authorities when requested president or secretary of defense. NORTHCOM also is responsible for overseeing military responses to natural disasters and man-made, such as hurricanes and incidents involving weapons of mass destruction within the borders of the United States.

"We are committed to a long struggle against violent extremists who seek to exploit any seams in our armor, "Renuart said." Our work … is to repair the joints to strengthen the shield. "

NORAD and NORTHCOM "have quietly and professionally conducted a mission that, by its nature, can not fail," Renuart said. "It also has to be something that is invisible and transparent to our nation. "

NORAD is a binational command that includes both the forces of the United States and Canada and is in charge of industry aerospace and maritime warning for North America. NORTHCOM is responsible for national defense and defense support to civil authorities.

As reported in the official federal government recognized that the border region of Mexico and the United States has experienced an alarming increase in the level of criminal cartel activity, including drugs, weapons and human smuggling, which has placed significant additional burdens on federal, state and local agencies of law enforcement.

Just last week thousands of Mexican soldiers were sent to the border with Mexico on a CD of El Paso's sister city. Juarez, after many pleas city mayor. Mexican troops arrived by troop transport C-130 Hercules Aircraft, military transport vehicles, helicopters, troop personal carries, pickups and SUVs with .50 caliber machine guns mounted. These convoys are operating throughout the city. With an estimated 30,000 troops to Mexican Mexico reportedly deployed around the fight against drugs and terrorist war puts Mexican soldiers on our borders with Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.

2,500 killed in Mexico since the early months of the year with more than 200 slain in Juarez so far this year, many of whom were killed execution style and is attributed to fighting Mexican drug cartels. These gang land style murder, reached a maximum of 10 per day. The escalating violence has caused discomfort on the side of the border between the U.S. and some officials fear that the violence spreading to El Paso and other American border cities.

The U.S. border with Mexico extends nearly 2,000 miles along the southern borders of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. In most areas, the border is in remote and sparsely populated areas of desert and rugged mountain terrain with vast open water of the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific Ocean.

The U.S. government supports a large length of the border and varied terrain poses significant challenges to U.S. efforts law to control the entry of people and goods in the United States.

U.S. Customs and Border (CBP), Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is the federal agency with primary responsibility to detect and prevent illegal entry into the United States. The latest available data indicate that approximately 11,000 CBP agents patrol nearly 6,000 miles of international border the United States shares with its neighbors Mexico and Canada, many patrol officers border have been told this reporter that they need more help patrolling and securing our borders.

In addition to federal agents, sheriff's State and some policemen in the border city is expected to help patrol the border areas. In remote areas along the border, many sheriffs departments are called to deal with criminal matters related to the border and serve as an endorsement of CBP operations. In many cases, these local law enforcement agencies lack the resources necessary to patrol thousands of square miles of border territory under their respective jurisdiction, leaving the security of the U.S. border vulnerable.

Dozens of U.S. citizens have been abducted, taken hostage and murdered by their captors in Mexico and many cases remain unresolved. Moreover, new cases of disappearances and kidnappings for ransom continue to be reported. See: Americans being kidnapped, Held and killed in Mexico

The question remains why United States has the workforce to secure our borders? Apparently not. Today, with our troops spread so thin around the world is the U.S. border very vulnerable few troops available to protect us?
