THE NEW TERRORISM

Justin Oldham
May 11, 2005

You don't have to be a conspiracy theorist to know how trans-national terrorism will take root in this country. A handful of organizations are already here and growing. If you're a news junky, you've heard about them on the radio or seen programs about them on t.v. The media calls them ethnic street gangs with overseas connections. In truth, many are actually fledgling terrorist groups that operate with impunity under the watchful eye of the U.S. Government.

Mara Salvatrucha [MS-13] has been called a Hispanic street gang with well-developed overseas connections. This group originated in El Salvador. It has a chain of command that starts in its parent country and sprawls across the Continental U.S. The organization is just now becoming sophisticated enough to create hidden cells. A 'cell' is a small but dedicated group that hides from public view. They are well trained, properly funded, and capably lead.

As part of their insurgent-oriented training, they are taught the importance of avoiding media scrutiny. Before they can begin making and using car bombs, or putting armed fighters in the field, they must first complete their growth/evolution. To this end, they are learning how to recruit and train new members. They are also learning how to control money and gather intelligence.

These are tasks that most home-grown street gangs have mastered after just ten years. Gangs with overseas origins have several obstacles to overcome before they can attain this basic level of operation. American culture, the English language, and our domestic law enforcement all pose major problems for these groups and their anti-American agendas. Even so, they aren't being stopped. We are now seeing indications that these barriers are no longer effective. By the end of this decade, groups like MS-13 may be sufficiently developed to begin their reign of terror on our soil.

It has been said that you should never underestimate the power of intent. The media has provided us with many examples of the 'intent' espoused by these so-called gangs and their overseas benefactors. They actively advocate anti-American agendas that involve the use of force. In many respects, they see themselves as modern Crusaders. They acknowledge the fact that the U.S. Government knows about them...and does nothing.

In spite of the future threat these groups pose, their numbers are small. The Federal bureaucracy has a hard time confronting small groups. Today's departments and agencies have their sights set on larger threats like Al Qaeda and the various Palestinian terror groups. Viewed from the top, this problem appears to be "a local matter," or "not important enough yet."

Trans-national terrorism is just what its name implies. terrorism that crosses borders. In this case, we'll be facing deeply dug-in forces that take their orders from people outside this country. With large cash reserves and pre-positioned assets, they'll be able to pursue their agendas inside the framework of our own legal system. The weapons they choose will be dictated by their assessment of our weaknesses. Turning us against each other might not be as hard as you think.
