Al-Qaieda Nukes in America?

Latest question from Homespun Blogger Symposium XXIX:

"Given that this information is true (from Al-Qaida Nukes Already in U.S. posted at WorldNetDaily) - ...for the purpose of this intellectual exercise, give it your best shot to imagine that it is. What do we do about this potential threat not only to the United States, but to the global economy and the history of mankind?"

The point of this exercise is to address the situation of nuclear warheads hidden in the U.S. today, as if it is a fact instead of an unsubstantiated claim. Please don't be alarmed - we don't want a "War of the Worlds" scenario, do we?

If, as the article suggests, gangs such as MS-13 have succeeded in smuggling nuclear material into the U.S. and have managed to hide it, we are in some DEEP SHIT. As I would hate to contemplate such a disastrous possibility, I will instead discuss what we should do to PREVENT this "American Hiroshima" from ever happening.

It is not practical to pull our military back home to man the borders - that is not what they signed on to do, and they are clearly pretty busy elswhere. As I have pointed out in the past, this is my major beef with the president. Our border security is absolute crap and the likelihood of terrorists simply carrying these suitcases over the border is very high.

Although no one wants to hear it, we need to erect a wall -- make that two walls. No, make it an all out, 24/7 monitered DMZ, with concertina wire, cameras, sensors and border-patrol stations set about every 10 miles. What the hell, get satellite imagery. Allow border crossings every 50 miles or so, with strict procedures and state-of-the-art computers with interpole and federal database access located at those stations. This will force the Al Qaieda (and some other determined illegals) to find other means of crossing....like say Canada (where we should put a second DMZ separating them from us) or entering through our ports, at which we should ALSO radically improve and modernize our screening techniques.

The "Minutemen" want to get involved? LET THEM....in fact, start PAYING THEM for monitoring the walls and the crossings.

Within our borders, we need to SEEK OUT gangs like MS-13 and deport them or, if they have committed crimes, jail them. If they have committed terrorism, send them to GITMO.

The havoc that such coordinated nuclear attacks on the U.S. would have on our economy? Unthinkable. Wall Street would fold like a house of tattered cards.

Do we need another wake up call to act NOW? Terrorism is the enemy, and Iraq might be the front - but there is still MUCH to do here at home.
